AUGUSTA — Maine’s top election official says the state’s voter registration database has been compromised.

Secretary of State Charlie Summers said today the database was breached through a remote computer that was infected with malware and was being used by a town clerk who was accessing information in the database.

Summers says his office is trying to determine what if any information was compromised, and whether the database was damaged by the software.

Summers declined to identify the town where the infected computer was located.
