Election Board Says Lugar Must Have Indiana Address

The Marion County Election Board has drawn the ire of Richard Lugar after ruling that the Senator and his wife, Char, are not eligible to vote in the precinct they are currently registered in because he no longer lives there.  The vote was 2-1 with Democrats Beth White and Mark Sullivan voting Lugar ineligible and Republican Patrick Dietrick voting him legal.

According to the Indianapolis Star, White said that there's no indication that Lugar knowingly violated the law.  Lugar plans to appeal.

In other news, Abdul-Hakim Shabazz reports that the Election Board also voted down satellite voting centers for the May election.
