iccky: I'm sure we can trust these people to only remove non-citizens from the voting rolls, and not other people of Hispanic decent who just happen to have the same name and/or birthdate. I'm sure they'll be good at that part of their job.

Anyone who removes an eligible voter from the rolls for any reason has violated that voter's civil rights. The official in question should face immediate dismissal and be liable for civil suit from the voter in question, both as the officeholder and personally.

I have an idea. Let's let every citizen vote. Pollsters do not have to set up polling in mental hospitals or in prisons, but if patients or inmates are smart enough to request an absentee ballot then they can vote. I'd even give them a choice- register to vote in the last jurisdiction in which they were free, or register in the jurisdiction in which they now reside. If the prisoner/ex-con bloc is so substantial that it's a real danger to a political party, then perhaps it's actually important that they be heard. Sure that'd screw with those prison-industrial-complex towns in Texas, but perhaps they and that industry could stand to have a little reform.

The real voter fraud is denying citizens their right to vote, not a couple-dozen non-citizens who checked the "register to vote" option when signing up for their drivers' licenses...

It's actually a good idea to spend a year dead for tax reasons.

If she's on the Social Security death list, that means her SSN has probably been released as public information... she might want to check that out.

Silverlock: Remember kiddies; when a Republican uses the term "voter fraud", what they really mean is "Too many brown people are allowed to vote."

This isn't even voter fraud though.

She was declared dead because someone with the same first name, middle initial, and last name died on the same day she was born.

Nevermind the fact they have different middle names, and their SSN's are completely different.

This is straight up stupidity.

Darth_Lukecash: I expect Florida will have a significant reduction in living people by the time of the election.

Especially the minority version of living people and those who vote for Democrats.
