Why do I feel like a voice in the wilderness? I keep pointing out problems with the election commission in Shelby County and nothing happens. Now, I have been given a copy of the state voter database by the Republican Party for analysis.

Checking the oldest 200,000 voters, I find over 7,000 people who are deceased. This doesn’t include the voters who had birthdates from the 1800s or 01/01/01. Checking for voters who might have two registrations in the state, I find over 5,600. Why doesn’t this alarm other people? Why doesn’t the state election commission push for a state-wide voter database?

Via the Knoxville News-Sentinel’s Michael Silence, who has more. As I’ve said before, we should be addressing these problems now, not waiting until there’s a crisis with a disputed election.
