Sheriff Dart first in nation to allow inmates to vote in-person. What could go wrong!

Dart registered 1200 inmates to vote in the 2016 election although Illinois law prohibits it!

In 2005 Illinois amended a law that disqualified people in jail from voting. But legal experts say the law is ambiguous and could lead to voter disenfranchisement because it doesn’t spell out procedures for inmates to register and vote.

Cara Smith, Sheriff Tom Dart’s chief policy officer, said the county jail has had an extensive absentee voting process for quite some time. The sheriff’s office sends inmates’ names to the clerk’s office, which determines who is registered to vote and who is eligible to vote. Then officials send voting packets to the inmates. But in-person voting represents “the next evolution to that commitment,” she said.

Blogger.. The circus act continues. Now Tom Dart and Cara Smith are pandering to a news outlet with a long history of anti-police rhetoric.

    I wonder how many of the inmates voted Republican? Zero what a scam. At least Rauner is sending voter data to Trumps commission I hope it uncovers all the illegals and dead people voting democrat.
