Scratch this name off the list.
An Atlanta family said it received a voter registration form this week for their cat Cody Tims – who died 12 years ago.
"There's a huge push but if they're trying to register cats, I'm not sure who else they're trying to register,” the late feline’s owner, Carol Tims, told Fox5 Atlanta. “I'm not sure if they're trying to register dogs, mice, snakes.”
I know you guys are going to believe what you want about the potential for fraud with absentee balloting, but "receiving a voter registration application" is very different from becoming registered. I'm pretty sure almost every state requires ID in order to do so.
Bruh, it's a cat that been dead for 12 years. How much oversight do you think is going into this?
My uncle died a couple months ago and was staying at my mother's house. You don't think I could vote for him under this bs?
It seems there's no oversight in who receives an application. Likely these folks got a magazine subscription a decade ago in their cat's name as a joke or something and some group got a hold of a list and sent applications to every name on it.
No, I'm not discounting that possibility in the case of your Uncle or something similar. It's not something I've spent my time researching to say that unequivocally. I would be very much surprised however if "Mr. Fluffles" or whatever succesffully submitted a vote in a nation-wide election.
