    What exactly do those people from Common Cause think that they are accomplishing by sitting next to a table? Psst, it looks foolish to me.

    Is Common Cause looking at the number of people over 100 years of age voting? In fact how many age 112 have voted? In North Carolina have over 2000plus voted? Where is Larry Leake on this?

    There are elderly people in this state who are clearly over 18, clearly citizens of this state eligible to vote but do not have a verifiable date of birth. The State Board of Elections assigns 01/01/1900 to these people in the database. That’s why we see “112 year olds”. There are similar people who know what year they were born but not the date. Such people are listed as 01/01 of the following year.
