Pulaski Clerk Won't Reinstate Leslie Rutledge's Voter Registration

An election official says he won't reverse his decision to cancel Republican attorney general hopeful Leslie Rutledge's voter registration in Arkansas over her also being on out-of-state voter rolls.

An attorney for Pulaski County told Rutledge in a letter Thursday that Clerk Larry Crane declined her request to have her voter registration reinstated, and told her that she still has time to re-register for the Nov. 4 election.

Monday is the deadline to register, but attorney Amanda Mitchell told Rutledge she should do so by the end of Friday.

Crane, a Democrat, earlier this week cancelled Rutledge's registration. Rutledge, who has called the move politically motivated, earlier Thursday asked Crane to reinstate her registration and said she was following his staff's instructions when she returned to Arkansas from Virginia.
