Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels will be able to choose a replacement for Indiana's ousted top elections official following a state Supreme Court ruling Thursday that found Democrats waited too long to challenge the GOP official's candidacy in 2010.

In a unanimous decision, the court overturned a Marion County judge's decision ordering the state recount commission to certify the runner-up, Democrat Vop Osili, as Indiana's secretary of state. Republican Charlie White, who won the race, was removed from office after he was convicted of felony voter fraud and perjury charges last month.

The decision dissipated a cloud of uncertainty that has lingered over the politically powerful office for more than a year, since Democrats accused White of lying about where he lived on his voter registration so he could keep his paid seat on the Fishers Town Council. White was sentenced Feb. 23 to one year of home detention.

With Indiana's primary election less than two months away, the court acted swiftly — ruling in about two weeks when it often takes months.

Daniels said he would act "pretty quickly" to appoint someone to finish the remainder of White's four-year term. "I've got, I think, a really good person in mind," he said. Daniels named White's chief deputy, Jerry Bonnet, interim secretary of state after White's February conviction.

Osili told The Associated Press that he hoped whoever was appointed would work with officials to make it easier for voters to comply with Indiana's voter ID law.
