Nothing to see here. When I moved from Maryland to California, I did not contact the state of Maryland and tell them to take my name off the rolls, and neither does anyone else. The result is that lots of people are at least temporarily registered to vote in two states. The vast majority of the people who are on the rolls in both New York and Florida are almost certainly elderly retirees who moved from NY to Florida. They aren't very likely to vote in Florida, hop a plane, and vote again the same day in New York; after all, while the Florida race is very close, NY is firm for Kerry so it doesn't matter.
However, I'd be interested in where you saw this article, and whether it was Republican-affiliated media (Fox, NY Post, Washington Times, Orlando Sentinel, etc). Florida Republicans are always looking for any angle to stop Democrats from voting. If only they can toss all those seniors who just moved down from NYC off the ballot, they can assure a Bush victory.
It was the bogus felon list, more than the hanging chads, that gave the state to Bush last time.
