Kootenai County voters to be verified

Sun., Aug. 7, 2011, midnight

Kootenai County is making an effort to verify every voter registration in the county.

County Clerk Cliff Hayes told the Coeur d’Alene Press that there are about 68,000 registered voters to check.

Hayes said he started the verification to hold high standards but also because of an election challenge in 2009 that found some individuals voting under fraudulent addresses.

Hayes said the process involves comparing addresses on a voter’s registration form to the address on driver’s licenses.
