State officials say an online hoax is spreading misinformation about voting registration in Alabama.
Secretary of State Beth Chapman says emails and Facebook posts that claim people need to re-register to vote in the upcoming election if they haven't voted since 2008 are not true.
Names will still be on the voter lists regardless of whether they've voted in the past. It is illegal to take a person's name off the voter list for not casting a ballot.
