Can Anyone Find Obama's Voter Registration Records?

According to a skip tracer, who is chasing down an unpaid debt, someone by the name of Harrison [Harry] J. Bounel and Barack Hussein Obama are sharing the same social security number and the same address, 5046 S. Greenwood, Chicago, IL 60615. Thus, I tried to search the Cook County Clerk's office to see if Bounel's name also appeared on the roll of registered voters.  So as not to limit my search, I left the name box empty and simply entered the home address into the search form (Fig. 1). Surprisingly, I received a response saying "The zip code you supplied does is not in suburban Cook County." (Fig. 2) The Obama's private home is located in the Kenwood district with a zip code of 60615, which is in Cook County. (Fig. 3)

At first I wondered if only Obama's registration was made unavailable because he is the President, so I entered other residential addresses from the same zip code and got identical results.  It's as if voter rolls for that zip code have disappeared from the Cook County Clerk's database.

Any suggestions as to why can't I find voter registration records for 60615, and President Obama in particular?

  1. Erica, you don't think the good folks in the Cook County elections office might be hiding something, do you?

    No, of course not.  Perish the thought.

  2. I'm going to be VERY generous in my thinking at this point and suggest there may be a technical glitch until someone can prove otherwise.
