At the risk of summoning Don, I have to ask the question in light of this information:
Raleigh, N.C. — An 89-year-old Raleigh man accused of voter fraud said he was trying to prove a point by casting two ballots.
“I think the election system is pathetic,” Leland Duane Lewis said Wednesday.
On Oct. 29, 2010, Lewis said he voted early at the Optimist Center in Raleigh.
“I voted on the front of the ballot – just the front,” he said.
Lewis said he wondered how easy it would be to get a second ballot, so he went to his regular polling place, St. Raphael’s Catholic Church, on Election Day. He said he gave his name and address to precinct officials and was given a ballot.
“So, I voted the back of the ballot,” he said. “They should’ve had information that said, ‘Hey Mister, you voted.'”
So, a man, able to vote early on one day and then, on election day, goes to his regular polling place, is able to vote again. But our system isn’t broke. And how do I know it isn’t broke?
Because I don’t know it’s not broke.
Or something like that.
