ALBUQUERQUE, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- An Albuquerque man said he was shocked to receive a voter registration card for his dog after he jokingly filled out a form at Wal-Mart.
Don Pizzolato said he filled out a voter registration form for his dog, Tuckup Koepke, with a phony birth date and Social Security number, the Albuquerque Journal reported Thursday.
However, Pizzolato said he never expected the form to result in an actual voter registration for his dog. He received a card for the canine only weeks after filling out the form.
"I fully expected the form to be returned to me," Pizzolato said.
He said he feared the situation was symptomatic of a larger problem that could lead to voter fraud.
"I just have one data point to go off of, but in my opinion, if it's this easy to thwart the system, I'm sure it's not an isolated case," he said.
Pizzolato said Tuckup Koepke will not be voting in the upcoming election.
