I will now easily debunk this unbelievably stupid theory about 117 year olds voting in #OH12

*cracks knuckles*

First of all, this is a moronic thing to lie about because voter files are public info and any random dude with Excel can prove you’re a gullible idiot.
Before we start, voter files haven’t been updated to show who voted in the #OH12 Special election. Doesn’t happen until finalized results.

Right now know we only know if someone voted is if they pulled an absentee/early ballot.

So yeah, first clue it’s all lies.
Pulling up Franklin County rolls, it is painfully obvious where the #Oh12 geriatric conspiracy theorist got their numbers.

Derp, look at those voters born in *checks notes* 1800.

Why did they go with 116+ years old when they could have gone with 218?!? Much more impressive.
So we have either a surprisingly hardy crop of voters born under President John Adams or we have ...

super-fucking-obvious data entry artifacts!

I wonder which one it is!
So I called the Franklin BOE and guess what? #OH12 isn’t overrun with immortal vampires or Napoleonic-era alchemists.

Board of Elections confirmed 1800 means they registered under the old system which didn’t collect birthdates, and haven’t updated their registrations since.
In Franklin County the oldest active #OH12 voter looks like it should be Juliet of Columbus, born in 1906.

Whoops, data entry error. Googled her name and address -> she was born in 1960, not 1906.
That probably makes the oldest active Franklin #Oh12 voter Chris from Gahanna, born 1910. Good job, Chris. Unless it’s another data entry error, which is possible.
In Delaware County, the oldest active voter was born in 1916. (Keep on truckin, George from Powell!)

One voter (Joseph) has an obvious data entry error of 1900. Googled his name and wow! An engagement announcement from April 2017, and his fiancée is registered at that address.
Are you guys ready for Licking??? I bet we’ll find a bunch of 117 year olds there.

12 active voters listed as born in 1901! Hot damn!

Surely this can’t be data entry artifacts again, right? WRONG.
So I called up Licking County Board of Elections and no, there aren’t 117 year olds galore still kicking while everyone from 1902 to 1911 died off.

When they transferred systems they marked all uncollected birthdates as 1901!
Damn, no #OH12 vampires.

Anyway, I could keep going for the other counties but this asinine theory has wasted enough of your time and mine.

One last note: of all the probably living active voters older than 100, looks like more than 4/5 of them are registered Republicans.
It’s like Whackamole out here, folks.

They keep popping up with new bullshit and you gotta beat em down
