Felon Voter Data Base

010920 504

Iowa election officials have stopped using a long-flawed database of felons who are ineligible to vote as they rebuild it from scratch. Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate's office removed the database, which contained more than 100,000 entries, from the statewide voter registration system last week. Workers are recreating the list by reviewing each entry and adding back those that are verified felony convictions. They hope to complete the review before the November election

An investigation is underway after the death of a woman found near Macy on the Omaha Indian Reservation.

The community of Macy held a vigil last night near the field were the body of 29-year-old Ashlea Aldrich was found on Tuesday.

However, authorities have released very little details about her death.  

A former village clerk who was praised for her work in helping rebuild her northeast Nebraska community following a deadly tornado in 2014 has been accused of theft.

Kimberly Neiman was arrested Wednesday at her home in Pilger.
