A “handful”—that is, “six to seven”—persons who registered to vote at the Democratic headquarters in Chesterton have complained to Porter County Voter Registration that their registration forms were never submitted to its office by the Oct. 6 deadline and that they are now unable to vote.
The e-mail to the Tribune did have a disquieting addendum: “FYI- (as I look back on this I remember that the worker asked if I was going to vote for Obama and I said I was still deciding. I hope they did not throw out only the ones that were not sure things for Obama).”
So the questions arise:
- Were registrations held up when people weren't firm for Obama?
- Should there be a legal responsibility held over registrars? We've seen fake registrations in some counties and here lost ones. Do they have any liability?
- Why doesn't Brian Gensel conduct an investigation? It's a nationwide phenomenon, kinda time little Porter County take it serious too.
- Was it only 6 or 7 people, or were there a lot more that got held up, or lost?
