So nice I ballot twice

Show me your tin foil - how many suspect that the fingerprints of the smartest woman in America are on this?

Some 46,000 New Yorkers are registered to vote in both the city and Florida, a shocking finding that exposes both states to potential abuses that could alter the outcome of elections, a Daily News investigation shows.

Registering in two places is illegal in both states, but the massive snowbird scandal goes undetected because election officials don't check rolls across state lines.

The finding is even more stunning given the pivotal role Florida played in the 2000 presidential election, when a margin there of 537 votes tipped a victory to George W. Bush.

Of the 46,000 registered in both states, 68% are Democrats, 12% are Republicans and 16% didn't claim a party.

Don't pick on the old people, they'll run you over by "accident." I'm sure these thousands of people were all just an innocent mistake. (Glad it was discovered before the election.)

Jane,
I don't think it will be fixed before the elections though. They said the statewide databaes are required prior to 2006 and no requirements for interstate correlation. Of course, this all depends on your definition of "fixed".
