The 695 Factor – Motor Voter ‘Snafu’ Allows Hundreds of Drivers to Vote Cleanly
A Democratic county commissioner gives a civil servant a tongue lashing for putting too many people on the voter rolls.
Over the last month or so, there has been a lot of hand-wringing over a “mistake” somewhere in the Motor Voter Registration System in Montgomery County. The Democratic Party ran around getting headlines that somehow bad things were happening because there was a sharp uptick in non-partisan registrations compared to other counties in the state.
Being paranoid, the Democrats thought, “Of course people were doing bad things to the Democrats. Hey, they always do.” So there are hearings and investigations. At the end of the day, it turns out a civil servant had made what turns out to be a “bad” call on a series of questionable procedures.
