If You Can't Win, Cheat

Becky in Ohio points to this story of vote fraud in, uh, Ohio:

Thousands of cards mailed by county election boards to newly registered voters in Hamilton County and throughout the state are being returned because the people can’t be found.

John Williams, director of the Hamilton County Board of Elections, said the situation indicates that there might not be as many new voters as some expect in a state deemed crucial in the presidential election.

Ohio Republican Party Chairman Robert Bennett on Tuesday said it’s a result of statewide registration fraud conducted by independent groups that support Democratic candidates.

Sure, the dead can dance – but why should we let them vote?

UPDATE: John Borell sent this story from the Toledo area:

The Lucas County Board of Elections is bracing for a wave of challenges against thousands of registered voters that could keep them from casting ballots in the November presidential election.

As many as 4,000 voters may be targeted for removal from the list of qualified voters because the board has found residential addresses on their registrations incorrect. The problem was found when the U.S. Postal Service returned registration confirmation cards routinely sent new or relocated voters to the elections office, marked “undeliverable,” said Paula Hicks-Hudson, elections board director.

The troublesome registrations are among tens of thousands of new registrations the county elections office has received over the last several months, said Ms. Hicks-Hudson, a Democrat. Lucas County has been targeted by several national groups for voter-registration drives. She said the county has yet to process 10,000 more cards and may take more than a week to get them completed.
