Covered CA Sending Out Pre-Marked Voter Cards

From the ABC San Diego affiliate, KGTV:

Local couple upset after receiving pre-marked voter registration card from Covered California

By Preston Phillips | March 29, 2014

LA MESA, Calif. – A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state’s Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an "x" in the box next to Democratic Party.

The couple – who did not want their identity revealed – received the letter and voter registration card from their health insurance provider Covered California, the state-run agency that implements President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

They have lived in La Mesa for years and they have always been registered to vote Republican. Now, they are perplexed as to how the voter registration card pre-marked Democrat ended up in their mailbox.

What a mystery. Perhaps we’ll never know. But you can be sure that Eric Holder will put the FBI on it, right away.

“I’m an old guy and I never would have noticed it, except I have an accountant that notices every dot and dash on a piece of paper as a wife,” said the man who received the mailer.

Covered California began mailing out voter signup cards to nearly 4 million enrollees last week after being threatened with a lawsuit by voting rights groups. But that does not explain the pre-filled out voter registration card.

Actually it was the ACLU that threatened to sue Covered California if they didn’t send out voter registration cards, just like is done under the federal Obama-Care exchange. (Apparently, Governor Jerry Brown and the rest of the Democrats didn’t think that was necessary, since California is already completely Democrat controlled. But the ACLU just wanted to make sure.)

So maybe the people in California just assumed the ACLU wanted the cards to be already filled out for Democrats. It’s a natural assumption.

“It’s a waste of money because there’s an awful lot of people who are going to get this that are already registered and they don’t need to. I can see that, but I can’t see putting x on the form before it’s given to me in a little bitty box that nobody’s really going to notice,” said the recipient of the mailer.

The recipient is not quite cynical enough to understand how Democrats work.

10News shared what was sent with Covered California.

Spokeswoman Anne Gonzales stated, "We are mailing voter registration material. However, the application forms come directly from the Secretary of State’s office, with no fields pre-marked. The individual should contact the Secretary of State, which takes these violations of election law extremely seriously, and they will investigate, using the unique serial number."

The couple says they did reach out to the Secretary of State’s office and could not get a hold of anyone…

So you can see how "extremely seriously" they take these matters.

    There’s no way the GOP will ever win large elections again.

    Too many people are on the Government gravy train, and they won’t allow anything or anyone to interfere with that.
