Attorney General Seizes Perry County Voting Records
(2008-06-05)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Alabama attorney general's office has served subpoenas for the voting records in Perry County concerning Tuesday's primary election.

Attorney General Troy King said Thursday his office had seized documents concerning applications for absentee ballots, poll lists, ballot accounting sheets, polling place sign-in sheets and other voting records.

Secretary of State Beth Chapman had earlier expressed concern that the west Alabama county received 1,114 absentee ballots in Tuesday's primary. That's in a rural county with 8,361 registered voters. Chapman had also said that a candidate was seen loitering in a polling place and was apparently instructing voters how to vote.

Perry County Sheriff James Hood has said he went to the polling place and found nothing unusual.
