    Heh, silly me, I forgot again. Well, off to the re-education camp for another refresher.

    And don't forget the very important pet voting movement.

    Local News | Woman registers her dog to vote; prosecutors growl | Seattle Times Newspaper

    Who let the dogs vote? The State of New Mexico! — RT

    sisu: "I found a cat that was registered to vote"

    And of course as a cross-over, we can't forget dead zombie pets:

    Voter registration mailer addressed to deceased dog -- GazetteXtra

    The official-looking mailing she received about two weeks ago was addressed to Molly Damrow.

    Molly died last fall.

    Molly was a dog.

    The mailing from the Voter Participation Center suggested Molly should register to vote. Enclosed was a form with Molly's name and address already filled in.

    Complete the form and send it to the state Government Accountability Board "today!" the letter said.

    "Our records show that you are eligible to vote in the 2012 presidential election," it said. "All you need to do is fill out the attached registration form."

    How pathetic it must be to see white boogieman republicans hiding around every corner just looking to enslave everyone else. What a joke.
    It's unfortunate that you believe these 2 soldiers might as well be Mexicans who don't have identification if they don't vote the way you want them to.

    Oh, the two ****ing poor soldiers ...... since trying to clean up the system is more difficult and error-prone, such that a couple soldiers, and others, might be inconvenienced since Homeland Security will not help, we're supposed to cry a river.

    I'm a resident of Florida, and we gonna kick the **** out of the Obama Administration on this ... and then we're going to be key in voting that lard-ass out of office.

    Obama is a cancer on the Republic.

    Yeah, I'm in Florida, too, and guess what? Scott has had this issue booted up his ass. It's over.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Since there is no voter ID, how do you know what the percentage of an unknown quantity is?

    Agreed that it is extremely wrong for government to arbitrarily deprive American citizens their right to vote but its more than just two soldiers:
    The purge, they point out, has snared dozens of native-born people and others who are legally eligible to vote, including African Americans, naturalized Haitians and Latinos — and a decorated World War II combat veteran.

    As the link notes, however, this issue is more than simply cleaning up the legal voter list. While I believe Gov. Scott is wrong to deprive citizens their right to vote, the Obama administration, specifically DHS, is wrong to deny access to the SAVE database as noted in the link.

    Not sure why all the "sky if falling" rhetoric is being spewed. This process isn't an instant purge. You get notified that you're on the potential purge list. If it's in error, you have 30 days to provide the proof otherwise. Even if you move and never get the notice, you can still vote. You show up, you discover you're removed from the rolls. You can still cast a provisional ballot in which you have 48 hours to provide the documentation needed for your vote to count.

    Another thing, you keep seeing the bits about elligible voters purged, what about the ones that aren't elligible.

    According to the Miami-Dade Elections Department, 1,637 people were flagged as "non-citizens" in that county, which has a large Latino community. At least 359 people have since proven their citizenship, and the county has also identified an additional 26 people as citizens. Eighty-three people responded denying ineligibility but did not provide proof. Those people will be removed after 30 days from date of response if no proof is provided, and are currently listed as "awaiting final determination."
    So out of 1,637 people, it appears that 1,169 people in Miami-Dade county have illegally registered to vote.

    Next up, "You're under arrest. When you prove you are innocent, then you will be released". Sorry, but that isn't the way our government should work.
