Reports that a private voter registration company in Nevada destroyed the voter registration forms of people who marked themselves as Democrats has been circulating the blogosphere, and is gaining the attention of the mainstream media. Unsurprisingly, reports and allegations are coming out of the same type of voter disenfranchisement in other states by other companies. From what has been reported, voters of both parties are being hit by this, so it isn’t a one-sided issue. According to an investigation by KLAS TV in Las Vegas:
> An employee of a private voter registration firm alleges that his bosses trashed registration forms filled out by Democratic voters because they only wanted to sign up Republican voters.
> The allegations have set off a political firestorm stretching from Las Vegas to Washington D.C., and beyond.
As well it should. If the allegations prove to be true, those responsible should be locked up for a very long time. There is no excuse for taking away one of the most important rights, we as citizens have.
