    I agree that it's absurd that we don't have a proper voter registration database, but I also think that's largely the result of the fraud behind the scheme of allowing double voting to skew elections.

Williams.” “I’ve never lived in Georgia,” he says.Jo Cox, wife of suspected double voter Robert Glen Cox of Virginia, says she has a solid alibi for him. Cox “is 85 years old and handicapped. He wasn’t in Georgia. Never voted there,” she says. He has also never used the middle name “Dewey.” Twenty-three percent of the names — nearly 1.6 million of them — lack matching middle names. “Jr.” and “Sr.” are ignored, potentially disenfranchising two generations in the same family. And, notably, of those who may have voted twice in the 2012 presidential election, 27 percent were listed as “inactive” voters, meaning that almost 1.9 million may not even have voted once in that race, according to Crosscheck’s own records. Al Jazeera America met with Kevin Antonio Hayes at his home in Durham. He is listed as having voted a second time, in Virginia, with the middle name Thomas, Hayes and his mother insist that he did not vote at all."

    Might help if people actually read the article before commenting..

    Again no. If it states you have already voted you cannot vote...

    This is a great article. Too bad none of this is actually a criminal offense. The GOP loves these actions, because its simple, they are taking away people who will not vote for them. The GOP is no friend of democracy.


    Jim Crow is back ?

    The Democrats who filibustered the 1964 Voting rights act and fought hard for segregation are back ?

    And why would you ASSUME that black voters are predisposed to voter fraud ?

    You're saying they're more likely to double vote.

    Nowhere in what you quoted does it state that someone had their name removed from the registrar.

    My first thoughts exactly while reading the OP.

    They will be removed for testing false positive.
