Will Barack Obama be on the ballot in Illinois
Defend The Vote ^ | Tuesday, 24 January 2012 | Sharon Meroni

Posted on 01/25/2012 8:14:30 AM PST by faucetman

Does Barack Obama have sufficient signatures on his petition to qualify for ballot placement in Illinois Primary election to be held on March 20th? This is the question that will be addressed in the next 10 days.

While working on a voter fraud investigation, Defend the Vote, in conjunction with Jack Roeser, Publisher of Champion News, uncovered that Barack Obama’s petition application to get on the Illinois Primary Ballot was prepared contrary to Illinois election law. Overall Mr. Obama’s application was very sloppy and included petitions that were not signed and/or notarized by the circulator, 20 page gaps in page numbering, and thousand of voters whose registration could not be confirmed.

Three Objectors stepped forward challenging Mr. Obama’s ballot application. Steve Boulton, Chris Cleveland and Sharon Meroni. The Objectors seek to prevent Mr. Obama from getting on the ballot. The Objection petition is posted here.

At 11am Tuesday morning, The Objectors head down to the Illinois State Board of Elections in the James R. Thompson Center. The first meeting is scheduled before the Illinois State Board of Elections (ISBE) and will involve setting schedules for the records review and all subsequent actions. You can read the Board Agenda here.

The records review begins Wednesday morning. This will involve a day or two at the Board of Elections in Chicago reviewing voter registration records of signers on these petitions. This review will have 8 stations of “Checkers.” The Checkers search for the voter record. Both the Objectors and the Candidate will have legal representatives to affirm or object to the findings of each person looked up during the records check. This will continue until all the records in contention are checked and a determination for each petition signatures is given.

Following this record check, both sides will offer arguments on signatures that are still contested. Within a week to 10 days, the ISBE will make a final determination as to Mr. Obama’s placement on the ballot.

We will update you after the hearing, tonight. More information is found at The Objectors website.

By the way, the Illinois State Board of Elections has invited Defend the Vote to speak on the issue of election security in Illinois at the February 22nd meeting. We invite you to join us!

Defend the Vote’s investigation of fraud continues. Our investigations have several aspects to it, and we will provide more details shortly. We appreciate the support of Jack Roeser and Champion News in this ongoing investigation.

This is what happens to your ballot application when you put ACORN drop outs in charge.

Obama loves those guys. They have the uncanny ability to get signatures from 5 out of every 4 people they talk to.

Oh, come on! This is Illinois we’re talking about. He could not even try to get any signatures and it would be recorded as more than enough to qualify.

I applaud their efforts. Anything to embarrass the WON.

But the net effect is he will still be the Dem’s nominee.

NOW if this were the general election ballot, we are talking about a whole n’uther ball game.

I won’t hold my breath since this is Illinois. Whether its this or the “recess” appointments its apparent that the rules don’t matter to BHO. It’s just amazing to see how poorly he is even able to feign compliance.

Cool!

With a little bit of luck, we could be looking at an Illinois Democrat presidential primary between Andy Martin, Lyndon Larouche, and Lar “America First” Daly!

And the amazing thing is any of them would probably be better than what we’ve got - including Daly, who’s been dead for a couple of decades (this is Illinois, after all).

Obama’s political career began with having competing candidates ruled ineligible in a 1996 State Senate election.

From Wikipedia: “Nominating petition challenges”

On December 26, 1995—the last day to file challenges—Barack Obama supporter Ron Davis filed objections to the legitimacy of the nominating petitions of state Sen. Palmer, and to those of Askia, Ewell and Lynch; a week later hearings began to determine whether their names would be on the ballot for the March 19 primary election.[27][28] Also challenging their rivals nominating petitions were: U.S. Senate candidate Dick Durbin,[29] and locally, two-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, nine-term incumbent state Rep. Barbara Flynn Currie, incumbent 4th Ward Democratic committeeman Toni Preckwinkle, all three 5th Ward Republican committeeman candidates, and three of twelve Cook County Court Fifth Subcircuit judgeship candidates.[27]

The January 10, 1996 Hyde Park Herald reported that after conducting checks the previous week, the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners’ initial findings indicated that all four would-be opponents of Obama, including incumbent state Sen. Palmer, may not have the required number of valid nominating petition signatures.[30] On January 13, Obama received the endorsement of the Independent Voters of Illinois-Independent Precinct Organization (IVI-IPO).[31]

On January 17, 1996—thirty days after her surprise announcement that she was running for re-election—Palmer announced she was withdrawing her bid for re-election because she was left with only 561 valid signatures on her nominating petitions, 196 short of the required 757 valid signatures needed to earn a place on the ballot after almost two-thirds of the 1,580 signatures on her nominating petitions were found to be invalid.[28][32]

The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners had previously sustained an objection to the nominating petitions of Lynch because of insufficient valid signatures, and subsequently sustained objections to the nominating petitions of Askia—who was left with only 688 valid signatures on his nominating petitions, 69 short of the required 757 valid signatures after almost two-thirds of the 1,899 signatures on his nominating petitions were found to be invalid, and Ewell—who was left with only 671 valid signatures on his nominating petitions, 86 short of the required 757 valid signatures after almost half of the 1,286 signatures on his nominating petitions were found to be invalid.[28][32] Lynch and Ewell, in separate federal lawsuits, unsuccessfully sued the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners seeking to reverse its decision to remove their names from the ballot.[28][33]

The notable thing here is how sloppy Palmer’s solicitors were, especially in a heavily Amish district where getting enough valid signatures should have been a piece of cake. It leads me to think the Illegal’s solicitors might have been equally sloppy.
