RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina Democratic Party leader has asked the State Board of Elections to investigate inaccuracies in voter registration application mailers sent by a conservative-leaning advocacy group.

Party Executive Director Casey Mann filed a complaint Monday with the board, alleging the Americans for Prosperity Foundation must have known details on the mailer were false or conflicting and would discourage voting this fall. Mann’s complaint suggests the mailers could be subject to a felony.

Americans for Prosperity said later Monday it’s contacted the elections board to fix complications related to the errors and apologized some families mistakenly received the mailer. The group says it expects the complaint to be dismissed and looks forward to registering more voters.

The mailers gave conflicting information on the registration deadline and where to return applications.
