Submission + - Illegal online registration by Obama campaign in NC (

RoccamOccam writes: North Carolina's Civitas Institute has revealed that the North Carolina State Board of Elections and the Obama campaign conspired to register at least 11,000 people via the internet in violation of state law.

The technology from Allpoint Voter Services uses remote-control pens to transmit “signatures” over the Internet, according to[iii]. After entering voter information in an online form, the citizen “signs” it with a stylus or a finger. The Allpoint technology records the signature and then transmits it to one of two autopens – one in California, the other in Nevada. One of the pens transcribes the signature on to a paper voter registration form. Allpoint then mails the documents to local election boards.

Anything cut to length will be too short.
