It is too easy to cheat in North Carolina Elections – just ask Clay Aiken.
In North Carolina, voters are required to sign an Authorization to Vote form before they are handed a ballot – the wording goes something like this:
I hereby certify that the address listed on the label is where I currently live or as corrected below. I understand that if I have moved from this address 30 or more days ago, it is a violation of North Carolina law to claim my old address as my voting address…
Clay’s nasty comments about the newest Wake County Board of Education members led some people to do some research and they ultimately found that in order to vote in the last couple of elections Clay Aiken was falsely stating that he lived in Wake County instead of the house he built (and lives in) in Chatham County . He voted in Wake County in several of the past elections, including the 2008 General Election and this year’s municipal election.
How many more “Clay Aikens” are out there lying about where they live or even who they are. Until North Carolina requires valid ID to vote – we will never know.
