This could happen to any of us.  The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

…a Utah voter-registration gaffe…appeared to have him shunning his Republican Party for independent status and using a home address he couldn’t legally claim since 2009…

A copy of the form shows Romney’s signature with his old address listed in two places beside warnings that providing false information on the registration document is a misdemeanor violation of Utah law.

It turns out Romney, who is moving to Utah as a full-time resident, strolled into a driver license office in late August to obtain his Utah license and filled out paperwork to register to vote at his under-construction home in Holladay, a suburb of Salt Lake City. But, apparently because of outdated information in the agency’s database, the pre-printed form listed Romney’s former Park City address on Rising Star Lane and with no party affiliation. Romney signed it…

Utah Elections Director Mark Thomas said Thursday that the driver-license clerk printed out Romney’s registration form before updating his new address. His license, Thomas said, bears the correct Holladay address.

“It was an error on the clerk’s fault,” Thomas said. “They’re getting a new registration form [mailed] out.”[su_csky_ad]

    This way Mitt can claim there is voter fraud out there and it isn’t a republican.

    After losing 5 of the past 6 popular POTUS votes, everyone is leaving the GOP even Mitt Romney.

    I notice that he didn’t check “yes” or “no” to the question whether he is a US citizen.

    Is this in doubt? I want to see his original long-form birth certificate!

      Perhaps there are plans underway for Utah to secede and become their own Mormon theocratic country.

    If I did this would they make sure it was corrected without me coming forward? NO so why is Utah Elections Director Mark Thomas making sure Ro-money is taken care of?

    No, it is mittens error. As an adult who claims to be intelligent he should NOT have signed a legal document with erroneous information, and he should have completed the form as well.
