Suspected East Longmeadow (MA) voter registration fraud triggers probe by the Secretary of State
The Republican ^

Secretary of State William Galvin has opened an investigation into allegations that a large number of East Longmeadow voters had their party affiliations changed without permission.

Town officials were notified Friday that Galvin’s office is looking into voter registration fraud for the upcoming Sept. 6 primary.

The investigation will determine if a large number of voter registrations “were improperly altered and changed ... in violation of law,” according to Michelle K. Tassinari, director of the office’s election division.

“Secretary Galvin considers this a matter of urgent circumstance,” she added.

Brian S. McNiff, a spokesman for Galvin, would not say how many cases of suspected fraud were being examined, or speculate on possible motives for the unauthorized changes.

...

Town Clerk Thomas P. Florence could not be reached for comment Monday. The letter sent by Galvin’s office last week instructed Florence to preserve all paper and computer records relating to voter registration.

Kibbe Road resident Douglas Howie received a letter Monday from the Secretary of State’s office stating that he had requested an absentee ballot for the Republican primary.

A lifelong Democrat, the 67-year old retired Connecticut Department of Corrections employee was flabbergasted.

“I’ve always voted Democrat -- something’s going on here,” he said, adding that his wife received a similar letter.

“She’s a Democrat too,” he said.

Spokesman for Republicans and Democrats said they were unaware of any statewide registration problems.

Something seems fishy to me. This sounds like Democrat tactics. I wonder what the political affiliation of the Town Clerk is?

Sounds like just plain and simple, perhaps a new standard, for ‘Rat GOTV tactics.

Make sure ALL of your base, who belong to US, get riled up and go to the polls and vote, by simply making hanky panky such that your base suspects foul play by the other guys.

Apparently all you have to do to confuse the democrats is ask them if they're citizens of not when they vote. They seem to seize right up with brainlock when asked.

No, that would be our Soros/Acorn-installed Sec-o-State, Mark Ritchie.

Until you can top Al Franklown becoming a US Senator, I'm claiming Minnesota as the winner in the filthy rat Sec-o-State race.

Obviously, the Republicans are working on a massive campaign of voter fraud. /s

Here’s an idea: voter ID.
It works equally well for any party seeking to win by cheating.
