The American Thinker has an article today talking about a New York democrat activist who has registered to vote in Ohio (a swing state) rather than New York. If you follow the link in the article, it will lead you to the website of Dr. Warren Throckmorton who evidently has been following similar stories. At present, there are approximately 150 people registered to vote in Franklin County, Ohio, with dubious residency. According to the article:
“No telling how widespread this is. Vote Today Ohio and similar groups are in major Ohio cities and at large state universities. I have reported on this before. Obamatravel.org helps fund people to make these trips. Here is the mission of Obamatravel.org:
Welcome to OBAMAtravel.org. This site is designed to help volunteers from non-swing states get to crucial swing states by connecting them with the resources they need.”
Dr. Throckmorton is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Grove City College and Fellow for Psychology and Public Policy at the Center for Vision and Values which is a part of Grove City College. For more about him and his work, go to DrThrockmorton.com.
There is nothing wrong with working for a political campaign in a state other than your home state; however, registering to vote in a state where you do not meet the requirements of residency (or registering to vote in two states) is illegal.
It is my hope that anyone found guilty of this type of manipulation of the electoral process would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
