(Oct. 13) -- Some Nevadans, who thought they had registered to vote, may have had their applications tossed in the trash.
Channel 8 Eyewitness News has learned that countless voter registration forms may have been destroyed and never processed. If you are one of those people, you will not be able to vote. This could have happened to hundreds or thousands of people. You need to look no further than Florida in the last presidential election.
In the final hours to register to vote on Tuesday night, thousands waited in line at the Clark County Government Center. They filled out the form and waited patiently for the next available clerk.
Democrat Natalia Connerly isn't here because she's a procrastinator but, instead, she may be a victim of voter fraud. Months ago, someone signed her up outside a grocery store at Lake Mead and Nellis Boulevard.
"I haven't gotten anything in the mail. I've been looking for my voter registration card that I normally get and I don't have anything," said Natalia Connerly, voter.
Eyewitness News has spoken with employees of the private voter registration company called Voters Outreach of America, also known as America Votes.
More than 300 part-time workers have been canvassing southern Nevada shopping malls and grocery stores collecting registrations. Former employee Eric Russell says his supervisor would destroy the democratic registrations and keep the republican ones.
"We caught her taking Democrats out of my pile, handed them to her assistant and he ripped them up right in front of us," Russell said, adding, "I grabbed some of them out of the garbage and she tells her assistant to get those from me."
In Reno, Washoe County's Registrar of Voters is taking a much closer look at registration forms. The FBI is now being called in to look at allegations that the same company, Voter Outreach of America forged nearly 200 registrations.
The Republican National Committee is primarily responsible for the hiring of the group in Nevada. Earlene Forsythe, the chair of the Nevada Republican Committee says her party is surprised by the alleged fraud.
"The Republican National Party would never intentionally hire any staff people to come into the state to intentionally do voter fraud."
In Clark County, Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax says an investigation could also be launched against the group.
"If it's true that some illegal things have happened and we see some evidence of that, we'll react accordingly. We'll probably start with the district attorney's office," Lomax said.
