Our colleagues at PILF have performed an extensive nationwide study and found U.S. voter rolls are full of errors, deceased voters and duplicate registrations. They found nearly half a million problems -- how many remain undiscovered?
Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a lawsuit against Pennsylvania and three of its counties for failing to make reasonable efforts to remove ineligible voters from their rolls as required by the federal National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA).
A trial date has been set for an Evansville woman charged with pre-marking absentee ballot applications before this past June's Indiana primary.
It’s not funny, actually. A grieving New Mexico widow visited her county election office to ask them to stop sending absentee ballots to her deceased husband who had passed away the year before in another state. That’s when they discovered her husband had actually voted from the grave. But not only did he not vote; she didn’t either despite having a vote registered in her name. Fraud times two because of universal vote by mail, only discovered when this lady took her civic duty seriously. Source: Another dead voter in New Mexico
This story gave us chills. It proves what ACRU and our supporters have noted for months -- vote fraud is not just rampant — but organized. Voting in person is the solution to making sure someone doesn’t slap a strip over duct tape over YOUR vote by fraudulently submitting others. We fear this unprecedented admission of felony vote tampering is just the tip of a very disturbing iceberg. As Lori says, “be a VIP!.”
A key ACRU vote integrity message is calling for election officials to be on alert for fraud. Case in point, a Colorado official who noticed a deceased gentlemen reinstated “his” voter registration. Kudos to election coordinator Sandra Brown, whose eagle eye resulted in vote fraud charges against one Larry Talbert. Other officials take note - databases already exist for cross checking - you just have to use them.
Former Atlanta feline Cody Tims passed away in 2008 after a lifetime of service to his loving family. This cat apparently was signed on to a mailing list at one point that was then sold to vote activists (yet another mail-only voting problem.) Cody is a purrfect example of why voting lists need constant updating. It is appalling that this cat not only was a registered voter but is still a registered voter after having passed away twelve years ago.
Last week, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania’s top election official admitted that duplicate ballots had been sent to registered voters but said he did not know how many were sent, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
The number of registered voters is fluid. Voters move, they pass away, and in California, people can register to vote when applying for a driver’s license even if they are not citizens. Those residing in institutional settings are a revolving door of voters. Therefore, Governor Newsom’s directive to send a ballot to every “registered voter” is the opposite of vote integrity. The state’s GOP is suing to stop this travesty. We wish them the best in nipping this potential fraud in the bud.
A few weeks ago, ACRU named MI Governor Whitmer “Crisis Tyrant of the Week.” We could add “Vote Fraud Promoter of the Year” to her credentials. Whitmer is sending absentee ballot request forms to both legal MI voters AND 30,000 ineligible voters still on voting rolls in Detroit alone. The state has records of who moved and who died. It would be an easy place to start protecting real voters casting legal votes. Whitmer, so far, is a “no” on integrity measures.
