Who Needs Election Reform?Posted by admin on June 5th, 2012
I just read that Florida election officials are set to announce that the secretary of state has discovered and purged up to 53,000 dead voters from the voter rolls in Florida.
How could 53,000 dead voters have sat on the polls for so long? Simple. Because Florida had not been using the best available data revealing which voters have died. Florida is now using the nationwide Social Security Death Index for determining which voters should be purged because they have died.
That’s the good news. Here is the bad news. Most states aren’t using the same database that Florida is. In fact, I have heard tell of reports that some election officials won’t even remove voters even when they are presented with a death certificate! You must be asking yourself “Surely you jest Red?!?”. I jest not! That means that voter rolls across the nation still are filled with dead voters, even if Florida is leading the way in detecting and removing them.
Just another case of the dear rising for election day. And it pains me that most liberals don’t think that we need election reform. At least not if we want to elect another democrat!
