“I was told I’d already voted, but I hadn’t”

A former GOP official had an *interesting* voting experience this morning:

When the NRCC alumnus arrived to vote at his polling place in Alexandria this morning, his attempt to cast a ballot was rebuffed by election officials: "I got inside, they set me up, I gave the woman my ID, and I told her my address.  She said, 'it seems you've voted absentee.'  Then she realized she'd read the sheet wrong. 'No, it says here that you've already voted,' she told me.  I hadn't even applied for an absentee ballot, nor did I vote early. As hokey as it sounds, I was excited to vote in person. I had absolutely not voted earlier that day. I arrived four minutes after they opened.  Basically, I was told I'd already voted, but I hadn't."

It certainly appears someone used his identity to commit vote fraud and cast a ballot in his name.

But surely not.  Election fraud is not a problem, remember?


The gentleman is not alone.  Others have had the same experience.

Now click your heels and say three times, “Election fraud is not a problem.  Election fraud is . . . “

Put me in that category. I went to vote and the poll workers had me down as voting earlier. I said you must have me confused with my husband who voted earlier. They made a mistake. Put his info on my line so it looked like I had voted. They caught it and changed it and I was allowed to vote. Whew!
