Cat That's Been Dead For 12 Years Gets A Voter Registration Application In The Mail

And people wonder why there are worries about mail-in voting...

One family in Atlanta just received a voter registration application for their cat. But that's not all: the cat, named Cody, has been dead for over 12 years. 

Owner Carol Tims told Fox News in an interview: "There's a huge push [to get people to vote] but if they're trying to register cats, 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 family found the form addressed to their cat - who they say is a Democrat - in their mailbox mid-week last week.

Cody was a “great cat, indoor and outdoor” who “loved his family, loved his neighborhood” and lived to the age of 18, according to its owner. But as it comes to his ability to vote and his voting record, even Tims had to admit: “He's a cat and he's been dead for a long time.” 

The Secretary of State of Georgia commented that they didn't send out the form and that a third party group had likely used a mailing list to get names and addresses of potential voters. 

The office commented: "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."
