    Since car reg and voter reg are both state functions it should be very easy to cross check. The state should then 1. offer the miscreant a choice of which place to consolidate, 2, fine the insurance co who accepted the fraudulent address two years premium.

  • Fred

    1) The miscreant should be given the choice to store the car where it is registered, or to register the car where it is being stored. Living in Chicago while maintaining a WI driver’s license, voter registration, and vehicle registration should not be an option. 2) The insurance companies are also victims here as these people are paying lower premiums than they should be. Classify this as insurance fraud (really, that’s what it is) and charge the miscreants with that as well.

  • BlueFairlane

    This depends on the miscreant registering to vote. I’ll bet the percentage of these miscreants who don’t vote is high.

  • david vartanoff

    au contraire, i expect them to be majority Rep/Tea voters.

  • Double Standard

    Nice stereotyping.

  • BlueFairlane

    That presumes the motivation for registering elsewhere is political rather than monetary. I suspect most don’t care about politics and just want to save a few bucks.

  • A very large percentage of people with IL drivers’ licenses are registered to vote, thanks to the Motor Voter program. Whether they TURN OUT is a whole separate question. :->

  • BlueFairlane

    And that registration would reflect whatever address they use to register their cars.
