Project Veritas: On January 10th, Project Veritas reporters walked into New Hampshire Polling Locations during the Presidential Primaries, saying dead people's names. We stated the name of a dead person we got from the NH obituaries. The names of the deceased were both Registered Republican and Democrats and in almost every case, saying a dead person's name, we were handed a ballot to cast a vote. We used no misrepresentation and no false pretenses. in fact, in almost every case, we insisted we show ID and they insisted that we vote without showing ID.

My Grandfather from Chicago has been voting the straight Democrat ticket since the day he died.
Romney got away with cheating in his own backyard?
I guess we probably give him a pass because he is “the only one electable”!
I think the majority of those dead people votes went to Ron Paul. Question is... will Eric Holder’s DOJ block the new South carolina voter ID law long enough to get the Democrat pick on the Republican ticket... or will South Carolina finally determine who the true Conservative candidate will be?
And the MSM headlines will read “Republican activist admits voter fraud”
I used to think that voting was a big deal. A duty and an honor. Now, I think it’s nothing but a flippin’ joke.
mmm mmm mmmm
Wonder who they voted for?
What is the new South Carolina voter ID law?
Showing ID before voting or showing ID to register to vote?
There’s a very big difference between the two.
"Do you know if there are any more dead people on the list? We're just checking to make sure there aren't."
Voter Fraud in NH...Surprise, surprise
Just practicing for the fall.
Not even the GOP establishment will care
If voters were required to show ID at time of registration, the problem would be minimized to a degree. Add ID checks at the ballot box would cure even more!
The problem of the dead voter can only be cured one way, deleting the dead from voter registration logs.
I don’t think any of the options a listed will become law in the near future.
Thank You for the link.
I’ll betcha Ded Kennedy has been, too
With today’s technology it should be simple to set up an automatic purge of the voter rolls when someone dies - wonder why nobody does it? Dems afraid to cut their base in half?
Did the Project Veritas people actually cast ballots?
Not sure if they actually did. I wonder if they made an excuse of “get their ID in the car” or “had to go to the bathroom” or something of that ilk.
It is pure racism that blocks voter ID.. the libs think black people are too dumb to get photo IDs
Who do you suppose they voted for?
There's no racism involved. The Dem's are playing a game called voter fraud. And in that game, their opposition to the voter id requirement is what's known as a poker tell.
“Who do you suppose they voted for?”
If they voted, they broke the law and should be prosecuted.
Even by representing themselves as someone else at the polling station would be against the law.
They didn’t vote. They didn’t claim to be the dead people in question. They just asked if the name was on the list and they were given a ballot and told that they didn’t need to provide ID.
By watching the video, you will see that they took care not to misrepresent themselves and not to vote.
If you goes up to an elections clerk at a polling place and state a name, 100% of the time they are going to assume that you are representing it to be your name. Everyone knows that. Therefore the people that did this were using misrepresentation.
My county purges the voting rolls as death certificates are issued. My father's registration was purged less than a month after he died.
Did the list not have the age of each voter printed on the list. In Texas they do. Even without a photo ID, it an election judge should be able to determine that a college age adult isn't a 70 year old.
They should never have touched the ballot. I'm not a lawyer, but I would think that once they accept the ballot, they've crossed a line. Very stupid on their part in my opinion.
Believe me I could say more, but would have to use expletives to convey my feelings about the whole farce.
Probably not. I live in Massachusetts, about five minutes away from the New Hampshire border, and we pretty much do it the same way. The only thing on the list is your name and address. In fact, I still see my sister's name on the books when I go to vote, even though she moved out of state over ten years ago.
Were they not required to sign a list of people who have voted in order to be given a ballot?
I’d lay money that most of them voted for Romney and many for Huntsman.
Probably not. I know in my district you don't, and it's probably the same in New Hampshire. Given the circumstances, that you are at a polling place, and the context of the conversation, I would think once accept the ballot, that would indicate confirmation.
Actually, once you indicate a name and address to the clerk, which they then draw a line through on their list, that could reasonably be assumed as confirmation.
Personally, I think they handled this very badly all around. About the only thing they really accomplished is video taping themselves engaging in voter fraud.
That's ridiculous. I've worked as an election judge in Texas, and a voter has to either show a voter registration card or other ID, then the voter has to sign a quadruplicate voter list in which voter ID and address must be filled out, then sign next to his or her name on the printed precinct voter list. The copies of the quadruplicate list get sent to different offices. One gets sent to the Texas Secretary of state in Austin. Once the US Supreme Court invalidates the Holder "Justice Department" block on the implementation of the new photo ID law, it will be required that a voter show a state or federal government issued photo ID.
Did you not read my post?
You don't need ID or any other type of verification, nor do you sign anything. You simply give the clerk your name or address. That's it.
Oh I understand. I was just trying to contrast that to a state that actually tries to prevent voter fraud. I live in a county that borders the one where "Ballot Box 13" was "found" in 1948 that gave Lyndon Johnson his narrow "victory" in the Democrat primary race for the US Senate. Texas has put rather elaborate procedures in place to try to cut down fraud. It's unfortunate that not all states have.
I misunderstood your post. Sorry about that. I thought you were expressing disagreement with me.
I don't like the way they do things up here either, but it is what it is. I still show my ID every time I vote.
Lots of my friends are pleased that concealed handgun licenses are on the list of approved photo ID's for voter identification in Texas.
