“Voter Fraud Is A Myth” Alert: Four Alabama Counties Have More Active, Registered Voters Than Adult Population…
Yeah I hear the left tell Republicans that they are just paranoid poor losers and that there is no voter fraud, that Conservatives attempt to require ID’s for voting is only to prevent black people from voting. But how do leftists explain more registered voters than living adults to vote?
Yes, asking for an ID is still horribly racist.
ALABAMA âˆ’ Less than three months before the June primary, four Alabama counties had more voters on their rolls than what the Census Bureau says is their voting age population. Officials give a number of reasons for that, including under-counting by the census. Secretary of State Jim Bennett said the discrepancies create opportunity for voting fraud.
“Every duplicate name and every bad address is just an opportunity for crooks to attempt to manipulate our elections,” Bennett said.
Each county has a three-person board of registrars that is responsible for maintaining the voting lists with help from the secretary of state’s office. The county boards receive notification when a person dies, registers in another county, gets a driver’s license in another state or is convicted of a disqualifying felony. The county boards are responsible for removing names from the list.
As of March, Greene, Hale, Lowndes and Macon counties had more active, registered voters than what the census estimated as their 18-and-older population in 2012. Active voters are those who have not been placed on inactive status. That happens when the periodic update cards from county boards are returned as undeliverable, or if they don’t vote for four years (two federal election cycles).
I think it’s even funnier that the Republican Party on the national level is soooo afraid of being labeled racist (more than they already are even though they are the party who pushed for Civil Rights for blacks) that they sit by and do nothing about voter fraud. I thought trying to win was suppose to be part of their job description… not running for cover.
RWN returns on Monday. Until then, consider this to be an open thread. Have a great week-end! Althouse The Baseball
