And The Hits Keep Coming

WFTV reports that Dead People Voting Throughout Florida

“This is what makes Supervisors of Elections lose sleep at night,” said Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Ann McFall.

McFall said it used to be easy to clear out voter rolls.

“We had two people who did nothing but cut obituary notices out of the papers,” she said. “That’s how we found out someone died.”

But 2002’s Help America Vote act, which made it easier to register to vote, also made it more difficult to remove voters from the rolls.

Elections supervisors say they are pushing the state to allow them to accept death certificates from families as reasonable evidence to remove dead voters from the rolls.

I would think that a death certificate is a pretty good indicator that someone has died, probably better than an obituary, but when the the Republicans who controlled the national government passed a law that was interpreted by the Republicans who control our state government this is what you get. Tell me again how the the Republicans are worried about “voter fraud”.

comment at that site: Of course us dead people vote. But you will never know the count because our votes are en-crypted.

I will chalk that up to the “holiday” and let in lie in peace.
