Citizen Data Integration failed…

Just before the upcoming elections in the United States on November 4th many voters have fallen victim to incorrect voters registration. It might well involve over hundred thousands of voters.

The Help America Vote Act was passed in 2002 in order to prevent voter registration and voting counting problems which happened with the presidential elections in 2000. One of the measures was to create centralized databases, which allow voters to check their registrations. In rolling up and centralizing local databases to state databases many mishaps have occured. Resulting in thousands of voters who are now not eligible to vote. These people have to reestablish their eligibility to vote in the coming weeks.
