State Board Of Elections Fields Complaints About AFP Mailings (WUNC-FM) -- The N.C. Board of Elections got thousands of calls about wrong voter registration info sent by the N.C. Americans For Prosperity. The head of the state Democratic Party suggests the letters were an attempt to conjure voter fraud charges. The state Board spokesman Josh Lawson, said: "We even had an individual receive one and call our office 'cause it was for her cat." The mailings got the deadline for voter registration wrong. The correct date is Oct. 10. An AFP news release claims it prompted thousands of new voters.
A Conservative Group Sent Wrong Voter Registration Information to Cat (TIME) -- Oh, for the coveted feline vote. In a bid to register conservative North Carolinians to vote, the political group Americans For Prosperity mistakenly sent voter registration forms with incorrect information to hundreds of men, women—and at least one cat. The faulty forms went out along with hundreds of thousands of normal voter registration mailers, AFP said. Some of those forms, numbering in the hundreds, included inaccurate information, like the wrong date of the deadline to register or the wrong location for where to send the completed form. And at least one such form was addressed to a woman’s cat.
