    You get that out of it? Reads to me like it's highly discriminatory against any two or more people with similar names. Particularly since so many of the so called double voters never even voted once.

    Not only that, if you saw what I posted earlier my husband, a minority democrat, just suddenly had his voting place moved after 8+ years of voting with no notification. When I saw your article and remembered I was wondering why we didn't get our usual voter card, I decided to look it up real quick and saw his place was moved while mine, a minority independent, still remained at the same place. Just makes you wonder why two people from the same exact address would suddenly have one of them moved with no notice just prior to a hot election when back in May during the primaries, he was still at the same place as me. Not exactly the same as this double voting issue but still kind of on topic.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    That sounds pretty weird that you both live at the same address, but only his voting location moved. Might want to call the BoE and find out what address is on both of your cards.

    So you get it fixed at the polling station. Happens all the time.

    But this is fraud karma, pure and simple.

    Based on the "Crosscheck list", which the whole article states is deeply flawed.

    Its not a "delete * from registration where name in ( crosscheck_list )" command
    Not what the article states: ""Based on the Crosscheck lists, officials have begun the process of removing names from the rolls beginning with 41,637 in Virginia alone. "

    I am going to when I get a chance. That's very strange and not only that but he was moved about a mile away, when I know there are atleast 2 other places closer, besides the church we normally vote at.

    This is not about Voter ID. This is about people being accused of fraud who have done nothing wrong. They are being denied the right to vote because it is showing they have already voted and are trying to vote again.

    That's because you are reading "process of removing names" with ignoring "begun".

    If they were given a list of all registered voters, they would have "begun" the same process. And that "process" is for each BoE to do the leg work.

    Some counties have websites where you can put in your name/address to validate you are registered, and it shows your polling place, like this one: https://www.elections.erie.gov/voterlookup.aspx


    If you are found, but your husband isn't, then his address is wrong.
