WaPo: Thousands of Voters ‘Incorrectly’ Purged From Voter Rolls Across Nation

Records of 4 of 6 WI State Election Board Members Rejected Due to Database ‘Mismatches’!

From Saturday’s Washington Post, on the “November Surprise” we’ve been trying to shout about for months now.

The lede: “Thousands of voters across the country must reestablish their eligibility in the next three weeks in order for their votes to count on Nov. 4, a result of new state registration systems that are incorrectly rejecting them.”…

Because many voters may not know that their names have been flagged, eligibility questions could cause added confusion on Election Day, beyond the delays that may come with a huge turnout.

In Alabama, scores of voters are being labeled as convicted felons on the basis of incorrect lists. Michigan must restore thousands of names it illegally removed from voter rolls over residency questions, a judge ruled this week.

Tens of thousands of voters could be affected in Wisconsin. Officials there admit that their database is wrong one out of five times when it flags voters, sometimes for data discrepancies as small as a middle initial or a typo in a birth date. When the six members of the state elections board — all retired judges — ran their registrations through the system, four were incorrectly rejected because of mismatches.

Check your registration now! And see below for more recent reports like the above, all of which have been almost completely ignored by both the corporate broadcast media (even as they’ve been reporting wall-to-wall on the GOP’s ACORN “voter fraud” hoax) and both of the major political parties…
