Carol Tims, the late cat’s owner revealed her cat, Cody, has been dead for 12 years. She told Fox 5: “I’m not sure who else they’re trying to register. I’m not sure if they’re trying to register dogs, mice, snakes,” The Georgia Secretary of State’s Office told the station that its staff did not send out the form.
Apparently third party groups use mailing lists to get names and addresses.
Which just happens to also include cats.
“Third-party groups all over the country are targeting Georgia to help register qualified individuals.”
“This group makes you wonder what these out-of-town activists are really doing. Make no mistake about it, this office is dedicated to investigating all types of fraud,” the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office said in a statement.
Hypothetically speaking, if the cat had still been alive today and turned up to the polls, they would’ve been turned away.
This is because the cat did not possess a license or state ID, which is required for voting.
If Cody could have voted, though, Tims told the station her beloved feline would have voted “Democrat.”
The voter registration deadline for all August 11 primary runoff elections in Georgia is now July 13, according to the Secretary of State’s office.
Georgia voters who have updated their voter registration since the June 9 primary will be eligible to vote in their updated location in the Aug. 11 primary runoff.
This isn’t the first time animals have tried their hands at exercising their democratic rights.
