    Possible Voter Fraud

     

    One more seat in the United States Senate is still up for grabs. The State of Georgia has scheduled a run-off between Democrat Jim Martin and incumbent republican senator, Saxby Chambliss. While most of the country has filed this election away, the hustle and bustle of the campaign is still alive and well in Georgia. As reported by CNN, endorsements by celebrities and heavyweight politicians are still rolling in and campaign ads are still airing. Along with these more (or less) innocuous election hallmarks, the worst cyclical occurance has reared its ugly head.

     

    As a young absentee voter, I have experienced voter fraud. On the 26th of  November, I called my local election office and asked why I hadn't received my absentee ballot for this important run-off. I was told that I had already voted on the 18th. Somehow, I travelled in my sleep from Boston to Atlanta to vote in a run-off and was back for class the next day. I should lay off the ambien. 

     

     

     

    Honestly, if I were going to commit voter fraud,I would also choose to steal the vote of someone in my demographic. With Obama out of the election, the youth train probably has run out of steam. Unfortunately, I am not a trend voter. My first vote was cast in a midterm election.

     

     

     

    No one can be sure if this is an isolated occurance, or if more people have had their vote cast for them, nor will anyone ever know. I just hope that the country knows that when the media stops shining their light, corrupting powers will crawl back out from the dark.
