Posted on 07/02/2004 9:14:59 AM PDT by jmstein7
If you are a computer-savvy FReeper, please read this and STOP graveyard voting before it can happen.
Another favorite Democrat vote fraud trick is "graveyard voting," i.e. finding the names of voters who have died, but still have their names on the voter rolls, and sending people to cast their vote.
This can be prevented by getting these invalid names purged from the rolls, and you can do it if you have Google (easy) or Lexis-Nexis (even EASIER)!
Most state/localities have their voter registries and death registries online in electronic databases. Here is how you can use them to prevent vote fraud BEFORE Democrats get a chance to commit it!
If you have Lexis-Nexis:
Voter registries and death records are available in the "Pubic Records" area of the "Research System." The best approach is to do your local area... search the death records, and then see if anyone who has died is still listed in the voter registry. This is pretty simple to do. If you want to narrow the search, start weeding out the deceased Democrats first!
Another approach is to search out males over 74 and females over 76 on the voter registries in your local area, and then search the death records to see if you can find matches.
The idea is essentially the same. Search out states/localities that have voter registries and death records online. For example, I know that most local boards in North Carolia have such information available.
What to do if you find dead, registered voters:
Call up your state or local board of elections and have your list of deceased, registered voters handy. Tell them that you want to challenge the registrations you've listed, as the voters are no longer alive. Most Boards will handle such challenges over the phone. Some Boards will require you to come down with your list and information
If every FReeper (there are around 100,000 of us) makes some small effort to help purge these invalid registrations, we can, together, make a significant impact on election day. Democrats can't cast votes for people who have been purged from the voter rolls -- or, at lease, it is more difficult to do so.
bumpty bump for later
thank ya, darlin
Where do you find these records online?
I found this site, which lists some states and localities but by no means all. But it doesn't include voter lists for Vermont.
That's okay... you can challenge registrations in any state/locality you find that has the info available. Google "voter records," "death records, "voter registrations," etc.
You will find what you are looking for,
Ah, I answered my own question. For Vermont you visit the VT Secretary of State's website, but voter lists will not be online until 2006. Meantime you need to get a paper record from the Town Clerk.
Nice tip. I'll look into it, as well as BUMP it.
Well.. paper is more difficult, but the project is well worth it.
Bippity Bumpity Boo!
Thank you. My mother died this year, and reading this I called the registration and asked that her voter registration be removed.
I think is is a wonderful effort. Think if you know anyone who died.
Also, I think it would be an excellent idea if we had a new law to impose the "death penalty" on anyone who screws intentionally with the voting "system".
With the new electronic pages they have in New Jersey, that probably wouldn't work, either.
Well, why not! The Rats are using criminals to go out to get people registered! May as well dig up the dead to register THEM too! heh!
I live outside of Denver and will check with my election board on all rules on how to do this. The voter rolls are not online.
lol ! :^D
Bump for later action!
good Idea.... bump for later re-read
gee, great. disenfranchise the dead.
They're almost bold enough that I would not be surprised to hear them make that claim.
LOL! "Go, Johnny, go!" .....
I will look into this - I think it's a big issue. Our voting process is becoming more third-world every year...
Death records --- free access at Ancestry.com
Social Security Death Index,current through the end of May 2004
Can do a search on state and/or locale, but only by one year at a time.
1st post, been reading your site for a while though
Clean Up the Voter Registries BUMP!
"1st post, been reading your site for a while though"
Welcome, Hush44! Great first post!
In California they no longer verify your residence or validity of voter's registration with mailings. My mom remained on the rolls of a precinct she hadn't lived in for over 15 yrs! People should be required to re-register periodically or prove who they are when they vote. Registrations should be purged when there is no activity, but instead, I fear they are exploited!
Voter rolls are public. A little investigation and research will let you uncover duplicate registrations and get them cancelled... but you need to start now.
Tried here in Pima County but you have to have a lot of information other than just a name of the deceased...need advice.
I will research what you need for Arizona.
ARIZONA REVISED STATUTES
TITLE 16. ELECTIONS AND ELECTORS
CHAPTER 1. QUALIFICATION AND REGISTRATION OF ELECTORS
ARTICLE 5. REGISTRATION ROLLS
§ 16-165. Causes for cancellation
A. The county recorder shall cancel a registration:
1. At the request of the person registered.
2. When the county recorder knows of the death of the person registered.
3. If the person has been adjudicated an incapacitated person as defined in section 14-5101.
4. When the person registered has been convicted of a felony, and the judgment of conviction has not been reversed or set aside. The county recorder shall cancel the registration on receipt of notice of a felony conviction from the court or from the secretary of state or when reported by the elector on a signed juror questionnaire that is completed pursuant to section 21-314.
D. Each month the department of health services shall transmit to the appropriate county recorder without charge a record of the death of every resident of his county sixteen years of age and older reported to the department within the preceding month. This record shall include only the name of the decedent, his date of birth, his social security number, if available, his usual legal residence at the time of his death and, if available, the decedent's father's name or his mother's maiden name. The record shall be used by the county recorder for the sole purpose of removing the names of deceased persons from the register. Public access to the records is prohibited. Use of information from the records for purposes other than those required by this section is prohibited. The recorder shall promptly cancel the name of each deceased person from the register.
As you see, if you alert the county recorder to the death of someone who is still on the voter rolls, the county recorder is BOUND by § 16-165(A)(2) to cancel the registration. They do not have a choice -- the county recorder SHALL cancel it.
Also interesting is § 16-165(D)... ask them if they've been following the law.
Many VT town clerks will burn the records to a disk/diskette for you for little or no cost
My Grandpappy voted Republican until the day he died. Be a shame if he started voting DemonRat now.

Hmmmmmm. I was planning a trip to the Registrar here in Brevard, NC, to pick up a sample ballot. I'll ask them about purging their voter rolls.
I think this would be more difficult & time consuming than you have made it seem.
What we should have been doing (since 2000) is sending the names of people from the obituarys *every day* to be removed from the voting rolls. We wouldn't have to search any farther than the daily paper.
Yesterday I noted that 22 black people, 8 white people & 3 hispanics had died in Houston. I wonder how many of them will vote this Nov?
