The Phoenixville man who was charged with destroying voter forms on the afternoon of Virginia's voter registration deadline while working for a Republican-affiliated firm has had his trial delayed for a second time, an NBC affiliate in the state is reporting.
According to WSLS10.com, Small, who is accused of throwing away eight completed forms, will face trial on April 2.
In October, Small, 23, was arrested by the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office and charged with four counts of destruction of voter registration applications, eight counts of failing to disclose voter registration applications, and one count of obstruction of justice.
At the time of the alleged crime, Small was working for Pinpoint, a firm hired by the Virginia GOP to register voters in the state. On October 15, the manager of a home accessory store in Harrisonburg, Virginia spotted a man who was later identified as Small throwing eight voter registration forms into a Dumpster behind shopping center where he worked.
While he was in the employ of the GOP, some close to the case have speculated that his motivations in trashing the forms weren't partisan, but that he simply missed the deadline and threw the papers away to hide his error.
