12. There is no question in my mind, that if we look county by county
we will find a number of people double voting. How do you coordinate this kind of thing county by county? One county has no idea who is registered in the next. It's all up to the voter to just vote once. But what if the voter doesn't realize that he's getting an absentee ballot from his old county? He signs it and sends it in. And then he gets calls on election day from Republican activist from his current county and they convince him that there is no record of an absentee ballot in that county. Which of course, there wouldn't be. Thus, there may be a number of Republicans voting twice?
