What are the odds, huh? A California couple — who don’t want to be identified — say that they received an envelop from Covered California, the state’s Obamacare exchange website. Inside was a letter that discussed voter registration and a card pre-marked for the Democrat Party.
They have lived in La Mesa for years and they have always been registered to vote Republican. Now, they are perplexed as to how the voter registration card pre-marked Democrat ended up in their mailbox.
“I’m an old guy and I never would have noticed it, except I have an accountant that notices every dot and dash on a piece of paper as a wife,” said the man who received the mailer.
Covered California began mailing out voter signup cards to nearly 4 million enrollees last week after being threatened with a lawsuit by voting rights groups. But that does not explain the pre-filled out voter registration card.
The TV station checked with Covered California. They reply that they got back was, essentially, “Go ask someone else.”
Spokeswoman Anne Gonzales stated, “We are mailing voter registration material. However, the application forms come directly from the Secretary of State’s office, with no fields pre-marked. The individual should contact the Secretary of State, which takes these violations of election law extremely seriously, and they will investigate, using the unique serial number.”
The couple did reach out to California’s secretary of state. That office takes the case so seriously that it hasn’t even replied to them. The state voter registrar told the couple to go back and check with Covered California, which they had already done.
