Des Moines idea a number of election irregularities have been uncovered by the state s nine largest counties which Are going through the throes of implementing the new Law on Mobile Deputy voter registrars. Attorney general Richard c. Turner believes these irregularities were caused by people being unfamiliar with the recently erected Law rather than deliberate attempts to deceive people. To insure that everyone who wants to vote nov. 3 is properly registered Turner is encouraging people living by these nine counties especially by the Rural sectors to Check with their Coli it it to auditors or City clerks if they have not already registered. Deadline for registering is sat urday oct. 24. In a number Ai instances election officials have not appointed an equal number of democrats and republicans As Mobile Deputy voter registrars As required by Law. For instance in both Council Bluffs and c Linton no republicans were named As registrars but 18 democrats were so designated in each City by auditors Deputy registrars were supposed to have been picked by Cour it to auditors in these nine counties As Well As City clerks in towns having Over 10,000 population from lists submitted by Republican and democratic county chairmen by aug. I. In Many instances these Mobile registrars who go door to door registering voters were not selected by the aug. I deadline mainly because the lists had not been submitted by then. Election officials Are supposed to Send a list of the number of people registered weekly to county chairmen. Again this has not been dime in a number of instances. Mobile Deputy voter registrars Are required to take an oath Ai office but some have not. But a preliminary Check in these nine counties Polk Woodbury Black Hawk Linn Scott Clinton Ottaw Ottamie Dubuque Ami Johnson indicates that no Deputy Mobile registrar has domed a person from registering regardless of party if he has met voter residency requirements. In order to vote a person must be a resident of the state six months the county 60 Days and the precinct to Days Secretary of state Melvin syn Horst said he received a number of complaints regarding possible election irregularities which prompted him to Confer with Turner. As a result of this conference last week Turner sent his assistants into each of the nine counties to make a firsthand investigation. Synhorst said the major complaint entered around two possible Law violations. One that some Deputy Mobile registrars were being paid for their service which would be contrary to the Law and also that some Deputy Mobile registrars were refusing to Register persons of the opposite party. In no instance Turner stated did his assistants find any registrar refusing to Register anyone regardless of politic a1 affiliation. However he said there is a a Strong possibility Quot that in at least one instance a Mobile Deputy registrar a is being Turner declined to elaborate pending further investigation by his office. While Many 18, 19 and 20 year Olds were being registered in each instance these registrations were being kept separate Asim strutted by Turner pending the outcome of the Case before the u. A supreme court. Turner said his staff found irregularities in nearly All of the nine counties. But the attorney general is convinced that these irregularities basically were caused by people not being familiar with the new election Law which requires All people living in counties having 50,000 people or More must Register to vote. The Law further stipulates that if they voted in the june primary they automatically were registered to vote in the november election.
