The Madison County Journal, 3/13/8

A county election commissioner accused of inappropriately moving over 10,000 voters from active to inactive status since the beginning of the year said she was simply doing her job.

District 1 Election Commissioner Sue Sautermeister came under fire late last week when it was revealed she had been changing voters’ status since the start of this year. Election Commission Chairman Kakey Chaney said this was done improperly.

Statistics indicate that there are several thousand more voters registered on the books than actual eligible voters.
