4Chan Users Claim to Have Found Way to Easily Change People’s Voter Registration and Cancel Ballots Online in Oregon and Washington

 

Claims from users on the anonymous messageboard 4Chan went viral on Saturday evening, as people said they discovered a way that ballots can be cancelled online in Washington — and that an Oregon voter’s registration can be changed, using just the voter’s name and date of birth.

Their exploit allegedly worked to change registration for voters who are in the military, overseas or disabled. The claims rapidly went viral across social media, but may be misleading or false.

These are the screenshots that went viral:

It seems as though the website will allow people to create a ballot for someone else, using just their name and date of birth, but it must be printed, signed and returned. Additionally, the form that it creates, at least in Oregon, requires a valid ID number or copy of another accepted form of identification.

 Washington state does as well.

Portland Tribune reporter Zane Sparling tweeted that “the ‘mark my ballot’ button is NOT the same as actually voting. It creates a form that absentee voters must submit to the elections office.” He added, “simply clicking these buttons does not create a vote. The form must be submitted by fax or email, and the form does not work unless you have been granted absentee ballot status by an elections official.”


Oregon’s voting rules do require a valid state ID number or the last four digits of your social security number in order to return an absentee ballot.

People on social media who were digging into the alleged vulnerability also claimed that by starting the process of changing a person’s registration online in Washington, it cancels any ballot that the person has already cast.

We have not yet been able to confirm or debunk this claim.

Obviously, the potential for voter fraud with that exploit — if they can in fact cancel out ballots that have already been sent in — is massive.

MAJOR VOTER FRAUD
