Hopefully, this gets sorted out before the election.

I'm sending in my Maryland voter registration today, and I saw this blurb up on Reuters:

Thousands Registered to Vote in 2 States-Report

In short, there's a lot of New Yorkers that spend the winters in New York. An exact count of how many people vote in both places could not be provided by the Daily News, the New York tabloid which examined computer records to ferret out duplicate registrations in New York City and Florida. They did uncover that between 400 and 1,000 registered voters voted twice in at least one election, a federal offense punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Of the 46,000 registered in both states, 68 percent are Democrats, 12 percent are Republicans and 16 percent didn't align themselves with a party, the newspaper reported on Sunday.

The duel registrations have gone undetected because election officials do not check voter rolls across state lines, the newspaper said.
