Election rolls boast 164-year-old voter — and we don’t need voter ID?

At a time when Democrats argue constantly that voter ID is unnecessary, the New York City Board of Elections mistakenly reports at least one of its voters to be a ripe 164 years old.

According to the board’s information, Luz Pabellon was born on Jan. 1, 1850, the New York Post reported.

Pabellon disputed the information, insisting she was born on Feb. 14, 1941.

“That’s not me. I don’t know why they did that,” Pabellon told the Post. “That’s very strange. I’ve been voting for many years.”

The board confirmed to the Post that it had made a mistake, explaining that when Pabellon registered to vote in 1978, she wrote “18 +” under the date of birth category on the manual voting card. When the agency moved its files to an electronic database, employees selected “01/01/1850” as the default date for anyone whose birth dates were unknown or unclear, the Post reported.

“This is crazy. It’s insane,” William Russell Moore, who challenged Marcos Crespo in the Democratic primary for a seat on the Bronx Assembly told the Post. “The Board of Elections is very inept. How many people are they doing this to? This is the type of inattention that allows fraud to take place.”

Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer vowed to take action, saying she has asked the state comptroller to audit the board’s records. “That’s so crazy,” Brewer told the Post. “I’ve never heard anything like that before. It’s just unbelievable.”

Getting dead people to vote is an old Democrat trick. Now they want voters to live forever.
