HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union is suing a West Virginia county clerk over complaints that her office won’t process online voter registrations.

The ACLU of West Virginia filed the proposed class-action lawsuit Thursday against Cabell County Clerk Karen Cole in U.S. District Court in Huntington.

The ACLU’s lawsuit says that when the Cabell clerk receives an online registration, it sends back a paper application and a letter that says the secretary of state’s website doesn’t provide the information required by law for the clerk’s office to process a voter application.

The lawsuit says the plaintiff, Marshall University student Allison Mullins, is one of an unknown number of people who registered online but didn’t have her information processed by Cole’s office.

Cole didn’t immediately respond to a phone message for comment.
