Serious questions arise related to missing voter histrories
The Tennessee Democratic Party, in conjunction with the Democratic National Committee, has undergone a thorough analysis of the publicly released voter files following news from Shelby County that nearly 500 voters had their voting histories erased. The results of the review are nothing short of troubling, as all or parts of the voting history for 11,000 Tennessee voters are missing when compared with a voter file release from five months prior. http://tndp.org/blog/2012/06/14/voter-histories-missing /

There is a breakdown of the numbers in the post at the link, and additionally another 29,010 voters were purged based on voter identification that aren't included in the voters with missing histories.

Erasing voter histories is illegal and somebody (ies) had better wind up in jail for this. :mad:

1. Vote "caging" is petty cash compared to vote counting fraud.

What has the Democratic Party done to ensure votes are counted properly?

Hearings were held after the 2004 election (though maybe not until 2006--not sure). Sworn testimony was that voting machines are easily hacked. And then, the subject was dropped like a lead balloon.

Supposedly, the recent Wisconsin gubernatorial special election mimicked the 2004 Presidential election phenomenon of having a significant discrepancy between exit polls, namely showing a majority of actual voters voted Democratic, and the election results, namely, a Republican victory.

Think about it a while.

2. Wisconsin Was a Test Run for November
The teabaggers control 27 states with 270 electoral votes.

3. All the more reason to have made efforts to try to ensure honest vote counting.

Well, that and the Equal Rights clause of the Constitution.
