MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The U.S. Justice Department is

threatening to sue Alabama's secretary of state over Alabama not

filing some mandatory election reports.

According to the Justice Department, Alabama didn't file reports after

the 2004 and 2006 elections about how many military and other

voters overseas applied for and cast absentee ballots.

Secretary of State Beth Chapman said the reports were not filed

by her predecessor and the information didn't exist when she took

office in 2007.

Chapman says she will file the information for the 2008 election

promptly, but she won't try to negotiate a settlement with the

Justice Department over something that occurred before her term

began.
