    there COULD be problems of that type:

    Most were changes in current registrations filed in the names of real voters, but signatures were spelled differently than the applicants’ names. Fake house numbers were given, and date of births did not match the names. The biggest red flag was that most of the forms were missing Social Security numbers.

    “It was that flagrant,” she said. “In no way did they look genuine.”

    Bodenstein said it appeared that whoever had been filling out the forms had been working off a database of voters that was at least four years old. She said she thought it was the work of “bottom of the totem pole” workers who were trying to reach a certain quota in order to be paid. Bodenstein reported the suspicious forms to the Office of the State Attorney for the First Judicial Circuit of Florida, which sent out investigators Thursday.

    So I guess the deal is if the "real voters" have already registered themselves by a legitimate route, whether they skew Dem or Repub, or any number of issues.  

    Bottom line - it seems like there could be some legitimate voters caught up in this - but from the description given, there doesn't seem to be much thought put into helping the GOP win per se . .. . (to whit, refer to the second section in bold in the box quote).
