If it hasn’t become abundently clear to you yet, this is a gaw’dang mess of an election year:

An advocacy group that registered more than a million voters two years ago is facing new allegations of voter fraud and sloppy work just weeks before crucial midterm elections.

Philadelphia’s municipal voter registration office has rejected about 3,000 cards submitted by ACORN – the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now – since April because of missing information or invalid addresses.

Denver County election officials forwarded about 200 cards to the secretary of state’s office after finding similar handwriting on signatures.

In Ohio, election officials in three of the state’s largest counties have cited problems with hundreds of voter registration cards. ACORN is accused of submitting cards with nonexistent addresses, forged signatures and, in one case, for someone who died seven years ago.
