I don't know how true this is or if this is old news. If this is true it's awful awful awful You know most blacks and Hispanics Vote Democratic. They must be really afraid of Ga Becoming Blue ...

This is very disturbing news! We need to demand that our leaders investigate this because if it is true then all of those involved should get jail time at minimum.

How do we know they even Existed ?

Did they PhotoCopy all 80K before they turned them in?

How many of the 80K were valid?

Maybe 40K were not added do to not valid being Registrations.


A NYTimes article from 2008 found that about 50%+ of the submitted Registration were not valid.

I was lucky that I am already registered to vote in the state. But I did a new voter registration for my new address with one of the people that walk around with the voter registration forms and when I went to vote yesterday I was told that I was still registered to vote at my old address. It was a bummer and I didn't really feel like pressing the ladies at the elections office, it was very busy yesterday.

Kemp says

Quote:
Kemp, however, said his office has now confirmed nearly 40,000 of those voters are active and on the rolls despite accusations to the contrary. He said almost 10,000 more are on the state’s “pending” voter list, meaning those voters have been asked to provide more information to confirm their identities.
