    Sure, but it didn't change the election at all. Romney still won the state and all the electoral votes.

    But can you imagine them just shrugging it off if there had been more registered voters than adult population and Romney had won those counties? Somehow I think Romney voters would not be so dismissive as I would like to think those of us on the right think the integrity of the system should be as important to everybody as who won.

    I could be wrong.
    You are wrong about just about everything. See, what happens is the right wing throws these charges out because it costs them nothing. If they went to court they'd actually have to prove something - which would require, you know, evidence.

    Who gives a rats ass what the voter registration figures were in March? Nobody gets elected by the number of voter registrations. They get elected by votes. I'll ask you the same question I asked all the other right wing fanatics on this subject. What was the registration number in November, and how many votes were cast in those counties? Why is that such a difficult question for all of you guys to answer?

    Ah, so voter irregularities are okay if this or that particular candidate wins. Is that it?

    Wonderful, but it has nothing to do with the subject at hand. Why is the left so obtuse in recognizing such irregularities? It's almost like you guys have something to lose, and that's telling.

    Always the same.
    In person voter fraud happens. The former republican incharge of elections here in Indiana did it. But it is so minor that it would never have an effect on a national or even a statewide election. I can't imagine there could be enough of it to sway a big city mayoral race. It just isn't worth the effort. Those right wing nuts who scream about in person voter fraud are like truthers who devise elaborate schemes as to how George Bush brought down the towers. Functionally neither make any sense but they cling to the irrational nature of it because they want to believe.

    It's not voter fraud unless Republicans do it. Didn't you get the memo?

    I'm not going to court though. I am participating on a message board witnessing different points of view expressed with my own eyes. Can you show me any post on this thread that would even suggest that I am wrong?

He says he heard of instances where residents were suspicious of census takers and wouldn’t answer their questions.

    Well...case closed. Cuz...thats what I heard....

    Here's the actual vote count numbers from 2012.

    http://uselectionatlas.org/RESULTS/d...&off=0&elect=0

    Given that the excess of active voters for the counties in question is <400 per county in all except Lowdnes, and all of these counties were landslides for Obama. There is literally no way the number of active voters being in excess of the censused population could have had any effect whatsoever on the election.

    Excess "active" voters compared to censused population:

    Green County: 365
    Macon County: 137
    Wilcox County: *6*

    Now Lowdnes County has 1045 excess active voters vs censured population, but Obama won there by 4000 votes. Still couldn't have had any effect.

    You have to wonder what the registration office in Lowdnes is doing, but there is 0 reason to think this has anything to do with voter fraud.
