From Gerry Milligan...Jon, i must be "as thick as a plank!!" because I am not seeing a problem. To register to vote in Texas (and Oklahoma and Oregon as the 3 states where I am familiar), applicants must supply proof of citizenship. When I registered in Oregon I showed my passport as proof.

How do you know they were Democrats? Texas does not have partisan registration.

More fake news from a conservative source.

Yeah, that "illegals voting" is just more Trump lies. He lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton and his ego can't stand it so he made up the illegals voting lie. In every state, proof of citizenship and some form of identification, such as driver's license or social security card, is required. The photo ID crap is a ruse as well. Texas does not have partisan registration, you simply register to vote so it's just speculation that the forms were sent by Democrats. I can see why Republicans might be upset, in that the Democratic party's effort in Texas resulted in over a million new registered voters but there's no way to pinpoint that photo on Democrats. It could be "some fat guy on a computer somewhere." Otherwise, this is just propaganda to attempt to suppress and nullify voters who are planning to vote against "Lyin' Ted."

What exactly is the problem? The lack of a place to check "NO"? I'm not clear on what problem you see Jon, unless you just think it's wrong for Democrats to encourage voter registration, and no, I *don't* think you believe that. Do you have a scan of the whole document? And do you know who issued it?

Is it that the three boxes are already checked?

It's been a long long time since I registered to vote in Texas. I would want to see a valid voter registration form from the state before making too many assumptions.

This is a "much ado about nothing" issue raised because the O'Rourke campaign has focused on voter registration and they've helped register a record number of voters in a year in Texas. Since there is no partisan voter registration, there is no way to distinguish "Democrat" registrations from "Republican" ones or independent ones. The voter registration office in Texas is run by Republicans so if there is a problem, it is because they weren't doing their job.

Ed: Sandy in what way(s) is the voter registration office responsible for any and all problems that exist in the Texas registration system.

Certainly those answers should be checked after they get to the Secretary of State or whomever they have processing this. BUT, yes, I see a problem, and think it is deceptive if anyone or any party is sending forms out with these boxes "pre-checked."

I don't see any credible source providing this information. The initial photo and information came from Breitbart, a known extremist right wing propaganda and invented fake news site. I doubt that such a form exists, or that it was ever distributed. If it was, I see nothing there that indicates checking those boxes would be a problem.
