Is VA. taking a page from the Chicago vastly important 'dead vote'? Is this group actually ACORN undercover after being broken up by their own voter fraud scandals? I don't know the answer to those questions, but I do know that the leader of this group is a former Gore Alliance for Climate Protection worker, obviously not some right winger...BEDFORD COUNTY, VA --When Tim Morris got his mail last week he found a pretty big surprise, a document asking his dog Mozart to register to vote.
Not only is Mozart a dog but he's been dead for two years.
"I opened it up and looked at it and I just laughed," Morris said. "I thought it was a joke at first and it turns out it's real."
The form is addressed to Mo, the family's nickname for the dog.
What amazed Morris is that if Mozart was human he would have been eligible to vote for the first time in 2012.
"He would have been 19 years old this year and he passed away two years ago," he said. "I still have no earthly idea how they got his information."
10 On Your Side looked deeper and found that the voter registration forms were sent by the non-profit Voter Participation Center, not the State Board of Elections.

We need to keep a close eye on the vote this time around.
