  •  Duplication is not fraud (4.00)
    There is NOTHING to this. OFten people will register several times throughout the year to make sure they are registered. Duplicates are routinely purged and is not indicative of fraud or any sort of foul play.

    There is literally NOTHING in these "accusations" as duplicated registration is normal, non-fraudulent and does not generate multiple ballots or multiple chances of voting.

    •  True (none)
      But, some GOP tactics (cash for Republican registration cards) encourages canvassers to use deception to get people to duplicate registration.

      It is the reponsibility of a person signing a form to know what they are signing, but these canvasseres are lying about what the form is.  If the voter doesn't fill out the name and address part correctly (you would double check for mistakes in the address portion and perhaps only use one of several possible addresses if you knew what it was for) -- the mail in ballot will not be sent to the correct location.  Being switched to Republican status is really inconsequential until the next primary.

      It is also possible that Sproul type canvassers will mangle the address portion -- effectively eliminating someone from the voter rolls.
