Well, this is disconcerting.  My current home state of California has been registering people to vote willy nilly… including people who have no right to do so.  Many of the violations happened at the Department of Motor Vehicles, that beacon of government ineptitude that so many Americans dread (and for good reason).  According to reports, the DMV may have registered over 1,500 people incorrectly between April 23 and Sept. 25 because of a “processing error.”

What that “processing error” called, “wanting to register more leftists to rig the system?”  Because that’s what they did. According to KTLA, a high number of people were incorrectly registered:

That includes legal residents who are not citizens, although the DMV says none of the people mistakenly registered are people living in the country illegally.

One Canadian national who’s lived in the U.S. 31 years told the Los Angeles Times that he knew it was a mistake when he was told he was newly registered to vote.

“When I saw that card, I just threw it out,” Randall Marquis said. “I know I’m not going to vote. I’m not allowed to vote, it’s stupid that I should be registered to vote.”

Well, isn’t that nice?   Now California is depending on the good faith on non-citizens to police their voting status themselves.  Nothing could go wrong with that, could it?  But don’t worry.  The state assures us that incorrect registrations will be canceled by the secretary of state.

Right.

But this is nothing new.  Last month, the DMV announced it may have botched about 23,000 voter registrations because of a different error.  So, does anyone else smell something fishy here?  If they admitted to 23,000 last month and another 1,500 in April, what’s the real number?  Probably exponentially more than they are willing to admit.

This should scare anyone who cares about democracy.
