VOTER PROTECTION WATCH: 30K Voters Could Be Disenfranchised

  • Ohio’s Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted acknowledged “losing” more than 30,000 registration updates, meaning these voters could be disenfranchised.

    According to Husted, the loss is due to a computer error which prevented the updates from being recorded by the Secretary of State’s office, The Advancement Project reported Thursday.

    A new CNN/ORC International Poll shows the presidential race remains tight in the battleground state of Colorado, with 50% of likely voters backing Barack Obama and 48% supporting Mitt Romney.

    That 2-point margin for Obama is well within the survey's sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

    As in most swing states, there is a fairly big gender gap, with Romney ahead among men by 10 points and Obama winning women by 13 points.

    Obama won Colorado's nine electoral votes by nearly 9 points in the 2008 election, but Romney has kept it close in 2012.

    1. Considering all the shenanigans this election, Obama should be reinstated by default.

      But please, don’t allow this to stop you from casting your ballot. And if you’re in Ohio, vote early; give them the opportunity to correct their mistakes.

    2. I wonder if the computer had a filter for the political parties and when it sensed the forms were for Democrats, the error occured.
