Irresponsible and Reckless Michelle
“Voter fraud is a serious issue... we should only be receiving one ballot!!” posted Michelle Caldier on 10/29/19 Facebook post.
It is irresponsible for an elected official to claim FRAUD was involved after a system problem was identified and corrected. Fraud is defined as intentional deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain.
No one intentionally tried to vote twice. This is just Michelle Caldier fueling the false voter fraud flame like someone else we know named Donald Trump.
The Pierce County Auditor’s Office has fixed record-keeping to ensure hundreds of Pierce County voters who received duplicate ballots for the Nov. 5 election can’t vote twice.
The Auditor’s Office found 350 voters — .07 percent of the county’s 519,000 ballots sent out — were affected by record discrepancies after a News Tribune’s inquiry into duplicate ballots.
The election’s office database stored variations on the affected voters’ names, including different spacing, spelling or hyphenation. One voter who received a duplicate ballot, John DeGuiseppi, or De Guiseppi, got a new driver’s license in August. The license has his name without a space between “De” and “Guiseppi,” but his voter registration includes the space.
It is irresponsible for an elected official to claim FRAUD was involved after a system problem was identified and corrected.
