Nothing New

Blackfive reports that the people who voted in the recent Republican primary were stricken from the rolls at his polling place in Chicago. This has long been standard practice, if not always so massive. Twentysome years ago we put a campaign poster for the re-election of our alderman, Roman Pucinski, at that time the one Republican in the Chicago City Council. We weren't yet devoted Republicans. The poster was more a favor to my mother-in-law, who used Pucinski's law firm. We found ourselves similarly stricken from the rolls, but were able to clear it up without needed to raise as much fuss as Blackfive is doing.

This IS happening everywhere to everyone. My husband didn't show up as registered and he is a straight ticket DEMOCRAT in Chicago. We did move. I had reapplied for a new voter registration card at a different time because I changed my name and I received it. I have voted both sides of the aisle consistently.

So, don't put your tin foil hats on yet. I think this has more to do with voter registration overload than a "big conspiracy." Man, would you kill the conspiracy rush to judgement already? (On both sides???) It is always associated with Repub's and it is embarrassing me when I step up for one.
