Customers on the nameless messageboard 4Chan declare to have found a way that people’s ballots can be cancelled on line in Washington — as well as change an Oregon voter’s registration… and all that you want is the person’s identify and date of delivery.
Their exploit allegedly worked to transform registration for voters who are in the army, abroad or disabled. The statements promptly went viral across social media late Saturday night time, but might be misleading.
It appears as nevertheless the web page will allow for people to build a ballot for another person else, employing just their title and day of start, but it will have to be printed, signed and returned.
Portland Tribune reporter Zane Sparling contends that “the ‘mark my ballot’ button is NOT the identical as truly voting. It produces a form that absentee voters should post to the elections office environment.” He added, “simply clicking these buttons does not develop a vote. The form ought to be submitted by fax or e mail, and the type does not get the job done except if you have been granted absentee ballot status by an elections formal.”
Again, simply clicking these buttons does not develop a vote.
The kind will have to be submitted by fax or electronic mail, and the type does not operate unless you have been granted absentee ballot position by an elections formal.

Men and women on social media who were being digging into the alleged vulnerability also claimed that by commencing the process of changing a person’s registration on line in Washington, it cancels any ballot that the man or woman has now solid.
