MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- State officials say an online hoax is spreading untrue rumors about voting registration in Alabama.

Secretary of State Beth Chapman says email messages and Facebook posts are claiming people need to re-register to vote in the upcoming election if they haven't voted since 2008.

But Chapman says the messages aren't true. She says voters' names will still be on the voter lists regardless of whether they voted in past elections.

Chapman says federal law specifically prohibits states from removing people from voter rolls for failing to cast ballots.
