Skip to comments.Rush to register at Pa. deadline
Posted on 03/25/2008 7:13:33 AM PDT by GVnana
At the Montgomery County Board of Elections Office yesterday, there wasn't a single moment when someone wasn't at the counter clutching a voter registration form.
"It's been a madhouse," said Joseph Passarella, the director of voter services, whose office stayed open late - until 8 p.m. - to accommodate the crowds.
At county election boards across the state, lines snaked down hallways as voters rushed to meet last night's deadline for registering to vote in the April 22 primary matchup between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama. According to the Pennsylvania Department of State, 19,639 new voters signed up in the period between March 10 and 17, the latest statewide data available. Of those, 14,256 registered as Democrats.
Also, 29,060 people changed their party affiliation to Democrat in just those seven days.
That increased the total number of eligible Democrats to 4,044,952, an increase of 4 percent from last November. And those numbers don't reflect the major voter registration push that the Clinton and Obama campaigns waged this past weekend, leading up to yesterday's deadline.
It also doesn't include the crush of applications received by election boards yesterday, many of which added staff and stayed open late to keep up with demand. "I drove here from Boston," said Emily Person, 28, of West Chester, who had been visiting relatives in Massachusetts.
"I started getting nervous that I wasn't going to make it," added Person, a Republican who is switching parties so she can weigh in on the choice facing Democrats. "It's been crazy," said James L. Forsythe, head of Chester County's Voter Services, describing the scene at his office yesterday.

Operation Chaos in full force.
Go Rush. Operation Chaos Continues.
I though Limbaugh was moving to Pa.
Ha, I thought Limbaugh was moving to Pennsylvania...
L.O.L.!!!...Hey democraps!...Two can play your game!
I recently registered Democrat in PA. After all, what do I get to vote for anymore, but the lesser of two evils? I say if I must vote for lesser evils, I should go to the party with the most evils to vote the lesser of!
I laugh with you.
I still think that somewhere down the road,
Democrats are going to try to use the arguement that these registrations reflect the trend in the country toward Democrat policies.
I look to hear a lot more about them during the next redistricting.
Oh, “hurry” to register...got it now.

Operation Chaos is working exactly as I had planned. Don't doubt me.

In the interest of "full disclosure" I was not a participant in Operation Chaos during my primary.
My wife changed to a Demonrat just so she could vote against Hellary..Both of us don’t buy Limbaugh telling everyone to vote for the Skank...The clintons are evil and should b stopped NOW.....I believe that Obama is human, he ain’t a demon like the rotten clintons are...
It will all come out in the wash during the general election, but the twosome from Hell have to be ousted in the primary!!!
Let them try. They can't. All it takes is articles like this. What are they going to say? "We want to redistrict on the basis of Republican cross-over voters?"
Have you ever heard Limbaugh say the object is to defeat Obama? I haven’t, but I’m not a daily listener.
With all these increased registrations PA might actually have as many voters this time as they have votes!
Do you think the reporters who wrote this story realize the irony in the headline?
No, they will lie like they always do, and claim that these are legitimate Democrat Voter Registrations.
