Could It Be?

Reading the methodology notes on the National Adult Assessment of Literacy recently, I noted that 13 % of the households they visited turned out to be vacant or not dwelling places (see my post on December 18). I have a theory as to which database they used to seek out adults, literate or not: voter registration. It has been said that in some places, "cemeteries vote." Perhaps not just cemeteries!

Chicago Rules of Election Fraud have other tips for voter generation, and it is not just Chicago anymore! Christian Science Monitor:
- Nothing says election fraud like a ballot cast from a cemetery. On paper, Manuel Yip seemed an active and regular voter in Miami, casting ballots four times between 1993 and 1997. There was just one problem: He passed away five years ago.
