NC DMV: Don’t Blame Us

The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles says it’s turned over all the information that elections officials have sought regarding ballots cast by people who thought they had registered to vote at DMV offices.

DMV spokesman Robert Broome said Friday the agency has responded to State Board of Elections requests for records on more than 8,100 ballots since Wednesday. He says a batch of 2,700 ballots was returned Thursday night, hours after DMV received it.

A federal judge ruled elections boards would have to count the votes of people who thought they had registered at DMV offices unless officials proved they declined to register. Her ruling was in response to a lawsuit that said DMV wasn’t submitting registration information to elections boards.
