Alabama Town has more Voters than Residents

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Voting in Uniontown has raised questions after there were more registered voters than the town's listed population.
Uniontown has a population of 1,775, according to the 2010 census. But the Perry County board of registrars says there are 2,587 registered voters in the town.
The total votes casted in Uniontown on Tuesday were 1,431, which represented a turnout of 55 percent of the number of registered voters and 80.6 percent of the town's population. According to the census, when compared with the 1,140 people in the town who are 18 and older, the turnout was 125 percent.
Deputy Secretary of State Emily Thompson pointed at a census error and voter registrars with strict guidelines in removing voters, even inactive ones, as possible reasons.
