"...During those eight weeks, canvassers were able to successfully find and interact with only 31 percent of their targets. Twice that number were confirmed to no longer live at the address on file either because a structure was abandoned or condemned, or if a current resident reported that the targeted voter no longer lived there. Based on those results, the New Organizing Institute, a Washington-based best-practices lab for lefty field operations, extrapolated that nearly 160,000 African-American voters in Milwaukee were no longer reachable at their last documented address "That scraps any traditional GOTV planning if six in ten people that you planned on talking to are not there, says Biko Baker, executive director of the League of Young Voters."

If voter rolls could be cleaned up in Philadelphia and Cleveland, this election would be settled.
Sure they did. They has gone home to the Mutha Wheel.
Oh they will show up on election day to vote.
More proof that Voter ID laws do indeed suppress the ability of Blacks to vote... two or three times each. One person, one vote...
What a shock.
Most black voters in Milwaukee never existed in the first place.
No wonder they are screaming and fighting so hard to defeat voter ID laws.
Don’t worry - They’ll be back on election day.
2) 12 hours to vote
There is no time to check out if the ballot is legitimate.
Solution: Allow 2 AND one half minutes in the voting booth. The voting info arrives in the mail beforehand so one has plenty of time to do their homework
I teach at an inner city school. Every year, literally half of my class will have changed by the end of the year. The next year, I will usually see most of the students who had transferred out the year before. My whole school is like this. The parents are very transient. What usually happens is they move to a place, neglect to pay rent and are eventually evicted after a few months, do the same thing at the next house in a never ending cycle. It is little wonder that their kids do not do well in school. They cannot get a consistent education when they change schools 2 or 3 times every year.
So stopping non existent voters is the “racist” activity we hear about?
Voter ID protects legitimate democracy.
They existed all right. They just died a while back, and the wheels of a bureaucracy may take 3-4 generations to get around to removin' 'em from the rolls. Patience!
“Oh they will show up on election day to vote.”
Just fuel up the busses, they’ll be there.
Ask me about having been a landlord. But only of you have a few weeks and have a dictionary of “Picturesque” Navy Slang.
Oh no, 0bamacare has cured multiple personality disorder.
At each address, they are likely registered to vote by the Democrat block captain as soon as they move in (the Dems have a very tight organizational structure in the inner cities). And that voter registration stays there after they have moved to a different precinct.
Voter ID may put a bigger damper on Dem efforts than we thought.
I find it quite comical that they feel they need to track down their voters and remind them to show up. Half of them won’t show up anyway unless they get a free lift and a pack of menthol’s for their time.
Bring out your dead. Bring out your dead. Bring out your dead Donkey voters.
the abortion industry is a racist plot to turn America white. It’s working.
At least twice.
Agreed, I see the same thing. Even in section 8 housing where they pay a small fraction of the rent, they still get kicked out on a regular basis, usually because of criminal or otherwise anti-social behavior.
Taxpayers would have an involuntary bowel movement if they knew how much money is spent on a two bedroom apartment in section eight...
