Six Alabama counties have more people registered to vote than they have adults of voting age.

The Birmingham News compared the state's voter registration numbers with the Census Bureau's population estimates and found more registered voters than voting-age adults in Conecuh, Greene Lowndes, Perry, Washington and Wilcox counties.

Greene County, for example, had 7,540 people on its voter rolls at the end of September, but the Census Bureau estimates its adult population at 6,834.

Secretary of State Beth Chapman says her staff is reviewing the numbers because bloated voter rolls can provide an opportunity for election fraud.
