Voter Registration Questions Persist And Social Security Not Responding

Roll Call is reporting on the voter registration problems that may be caused by Social Security's scheduled computer shutdown over the Columbus Day weekend. The states are required tunder the feheral Help America Vote Act to crosscheck new voter registrations with Social Security's database. The maintenance is routine, but can still cause problems for election officials. Democrats, in particular, are making a concerted effort to register new voters for the upcoming election. Social Security did not respond to Roll Call's request to discuss the matter.

I hope that no one at Social Security has called the White House to ask what to do about this.
