Voter Registrations Possibly TrashedTHIS IS IMPORTANT: Double-check to see if your registration has been processed. YOU CAN DO IT. IT'S EASY. Do a Google search for your local board of elections. Send them an e-mail with your vital info (you shouldn't have to give them your party affiliation) and ask if your registration has been processed. You'll hear from them within a day or two. I've done it here in L.A. They responded almost immediately. It's well worth your time. Do it now.
Employees of a private voter registration company allege that hundreds, perhaps thousands of voters who may think they are registered will be rudely surprised on election day. The company claims hundreds of registration forms were thrown in the trash.
Anyone who has recently registered or re-registered to vote outside a mall or grocery store or even government building may be affected.
The I-Team has obtained information about an alleged widespread pattern of potential registration fraud aimed at Democrats. The focus of the story is a private registration company called Voters Outreach of America, AKA America Votes.
The out-of-state firm has been in Las Vegas for the past few months, registering voters. It employed up to 300 part-time workers and collected hundreds of registrations per day, but former employees of the company say that Voters Outreach of America only wanted Republican registrations.
The company has been largely, if not entirely funded, by the Republican National Committee. Similar complaints have been received in Reno where the registrar has asked the FBI to investigate.
