DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A Republican county election official is pushing Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz to investigate how three legitimate voters incorrectly appeared on a list of felons ineligible to vote in the 2012 presidential election.

Cerro Gordo County Auditor Ken Kline says one person who was never convicted of a felony and two ex-felons whose voting rights had been restored were denied votes in the election after Schultz's office confirmed the three were on a list of ineligible voters.

The Des Moines Register reports Schultz's spokesman says his office relied on information provided by Iowa court officials.

Kline worries other people in Iowa have improperly been denied the right to vote.

State Sen. Jeff Danielson, a Waterloo Democrat, has scheduled a hearing for next week on the issue.
