Today, a voter stopped me in the hallway to ask about a person who knocked on his door yesterday. According to what I heard the voter say, the conversation went something like this …
Young man: According to my list, you are a registered Republican and you have not voted.
Voter: I am a life long registered Democrat.
Young man: Can I see your voter registration card?
Voter: Here’s my Warren County voter registration card. See, it says I am a Democrat. I am registered to vote in Linn County, but this is the one I happen to have in my wallet.
Young man: Warren County?
Young man: Thank you!
The young man left and the voter came into the office and voted today, and then saw me and asked about the incident. I told the voter that I had no knowledge of anyone knocking on doors and asking to see a voter’s voter registration card.
Trick or treat: May I see your voter registration card? Did you vote yet? It’s Halloween. Get ready for some strange questions at your door tonight. -Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
