    With all the hysteria and hoopla about ACORN, people don't do their homework and stick to the Rush/Fox rumpswab sheeple talking points.. first of all ACORN reports any irregularities and has to verify the registration.. secondly the power lies with those who regulate and count the votes, not who registers the voters..

    This line on the form, asking for an "address (if required)" is the source of the confusion, officials say. Under state law, witnesses must provide an address.

    Document: Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (PDF)

    An obscure state law and an ambiguous federal ballot form are combining to invalidate some of the thousands of absentee votes being cast this fall by Virginians overseas, most of them in the military.

    State officials confirmed Thursday that they've instructed local registrars to set aside any vote submitted on a federally furnished write-in ballot unless the ballot includes both the name and address of the person who witnessed the vote. An advisory to registrars was distributed earlier this week, said Susan Pollard, a spokeswoman for the State Board of Elections.
