An Oregon woman registered her dog to vote in protest of lax regulations. Of course, she got into trouble. Charges were filed and later dropped. She still had to pay $240 in court costs and do 10 hours of community service.
She was able to register her dog, Duncan M. MacDonald, to vote using a water bill in his name. This news story says she didn’t try to vote in her dog’s name but she did put the Australian shepherd terrier mix’s paw print on an absentee ballot envelope instead of a signature.
I wonder how Duncan would vote in the upcoming election?
