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.
UPDATE: Washington state does as well.
Updating a Washington address requires a state driver license number or state ID card. https://t.co/8DTLONpEYPpic.twitter.com/PvGN8pZsie
