CARSON CITY -- A $4.6 million project by Secretary of State Dean Heller to start a statewide voter registration system has turned sour.

Clerks and voter registrars from the 17 counties that now handle the elections said the system under development is unreliable, inaccurate and should be scrapped in the 2006 election.

In addition, a new computer system, plagued with a multitude of problems, will not meet the Jan. 1 deadline imposed by the federal government.

Larry Lomax, Clark County registrar of voters, wrote a letter on behalf of all local election officials to Heller, saying it would "be irresponsible on our part to switch to a system that would not allow us to carry out our statutory responsibilities."

CARSON CITY - State and local election officials meet Thursday in Las Vegas to work out final details of an alternative to a statewide voter registration system that won't be ready for the start of Nevada's 2006 election cycle.

Representatives of Secretary of State Dean Heller's office and various clerks and registrars from around the state will meet in the office of Clark County Registrar Larry Lomax to finalize their "Plan B" solution to a federal mandate on voter registration.

A system linking the 17 counties and Heller's office is being developed by Covansys, under a $4.6 million contract. But Heller said Monday it won't be ready by a Jan. 1 deadline.

Covansys "just ran out of time" in trying to meet the deadline imposed under the federal Help America Vote Act, Heller said. "So we had to come up with an alternative."

The alternative is a "bottom-up" system using existing computer systems to feed voter registration information from county election officials to Heller's office, which will maintain a database that can be checked to guard against any voter registration fraud or other problems.
