OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The form that arrived in the mail at Brenda Charlston's home in Seattle last month encouraged Rosie Charlston to register to vote. Problem is, Rosie was Brenda Charlston's black lab — and she died in 1998.

The Voter Participation Center has touted the distribution of some 5 million registration forms in recent weeks, targeting Democratic-leaning voting blocs such as unmarried women, blacks, Latinos and young adults.
But residents and election administrators around the country report a series of bizarre and questionable mailings addressed to animals, dead people, noncitizens and people already registered to vote.
Several election officials say their voter registration systems are secure enough to catch people who might improperly submit the documents. Others warn that ineligible voters who complete the documents could make it onto the rolls.
