Misinformation Encourages Philadelphians to Cancel Their Own Votes

Misinformation encouraging people in Philadelphia to cancel their own votes has been circulating on Tuesday, and Obama field operatives have begun trying to correct the rumor on the ground. The rumor, which has spread in urban and predominantly African American areas of Philadelphia that tilt towards Barack Obama, wrongly instructed voters to first select an All Democratic voting slate and then cast another vote specifically for Obama. That second vote has the effect of canceling the original vote, according to two Democratic sources in Philadelphia.

Many voters are being told to vote for the President by BOTH checking the Straight Democrat Box and the Box for the President, explains an email from an Obama Voter Protection staffer targeting Philadelphia voters. That action cancels the vote, says the staffer, who instructed voters to do one or the other, but not both.

The Obama campaign has voter protection staff and attorneys on the ground trying to clarify the situation, and began sending emails as early as 9:16am today. Concerns about the rumor began bubbling up early this morning, including one 7:46am tweet warning against the confusing double-vote option.
