Challenge by Mormons to Nauvoo Election Continues

NAUVOO, ILLINOIS -- A challenge by several members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints over registration for the April 3rd Nauvoo election continues, and Illinois State Election officials refuse to comment on their investigation. Several LDS Church members complained that they were not allowed to register for the April 3rd election, in which an LDS Church member was running for mayor. The candidate lost the election by more votes than the number of members who complained.

According to the assistant director of the Illinois State Board of Elections, Dan White, an investigation into the allegations continues, and is likely to continue for several months. "This process is very normal, but we aren't operating with a sense of urgency because the election is over," White said. "This also is a complaint we get about once every election cycle."

Between 20 and 30 LDS Church members who were residents of Nauvoo temporarily while serving LDS missions in the town or working with the construction of the Nauvoo Temple. If irregularites are found in the election, the Illinois Attorney General's office will determine whether or not to pursue charges and prosecution.
