Indiana candidate blames voting error on being busy

FISHERS, IN (AP) - The Republican candidate for Indiana secretary of state candidate says he was too busy to think about changing his voter's registration from his ex-wife's home before using that address to vote in the May primary.

The Democratic candidate said Charlie White's actions were troubling for someone seeking to become the state's top elections officer.

White resigned this week from the Fishers Town Council because his new home was outside his district in the Indianapolis suburb. White told The Indianapolis Star he moved into a condominium in March and "just didn't think about" updating his voter's registration.

White faces Democrat Vop Osili in the November election.

Osili said the state's top election administrator should adhere to the letter of the law.
