Skip to comments.Las Vegas area has huge spike in voter sign-ups
Posted on 10/02/2004 10:24:11 PM PDT by Souled_Out
A massive spike in voter registrations has placed the Las Vegas area on a pace to lead the nation in the percentage of new voters and has resulted in Democratic gains that could affect the general election in Nevada, a key battleground state.

Looks like we really need to win by a landslide or the next four years will have us republicans sounding like democrats
After Bush's poor showing in the first debate, I think the Dems smell blood.
Voter registration is up all over the county .. I'm predicting Philly will have a 185% voter turn out
"We've already passed the number of registration forms processed this year than we did in the last three years combined," said Larry Lomax, Clark County's registrar of voters. He added the gain may be the largest on a percentage basis in the nation.
We will end up surpassing the amount of people even qualified to vote.
Same thing happening in Albequerque, Wisconsin, Florida, Michigan...
If it's not close, they can't cheat. It must be REALLY close.
the strip clubs are getting their patrons to sign up and vote. telling them if W wins, these clubs will be shut down. using the FCC scare tactic.
the hijacking continues by the kerry krewe.
they're trying this all over the country - something has to be done - I say all US attorneys put this on the front burner and issue statements that voter fraud will be investigated and prosecuted on a federal level.
I'm amazed. Did I actually read someone suggest that if the Dems are registering more voters that Ashcroft needs to investigate? So now we're at a point where an opposition party can't try to sign voters up? What has HAPPENED to the Republican party I knew? I would assume we are still a democracy with two parties free to campaign. I saw nothing at all in that story that suggested there was anything except a get out the vote drive. Has our partisan desire overcome the very reason why people fight and die to defend our country -- elections?
The proper response is for Republicans to also work their tails off..and from what I read Karl Rove is doing just that to get a huge turnout on election day.
So by the comments above should the Democrats now say that it's undemocratic for Karl Rove to get Republican votes out?
I have to read this page again to make sure I read it right. I did think this was a democracy; any political science class talks about the importance of getting out the vote and registering voters. There is nothing illegal or wrong about it (unless you're talking about the 1960 vote in Chicago!)
As usual they are screwing up the entire state. Bush may very well lose Nevada this time around.
I dont live there. How can I help? Is there a Nevada Republicans group registering people that need donations?
I doubt a credible investigation of this situation could be accomplished in 30 days under Ashcroft or any other AG.
Reno is Bush country. Find out if you can help there.
Then the dims already won, republicans don't know how to fight.
But someone better be checking to make sure these registrations are real
All that many are asking for is to have a fair and legit election .. that really isn't too much to ask I think
I agree with you completely, every adult legal citizen has the right to vote and be registered.
My concern is that this may resemble your statement about the Chicago vote. My comments concern the fact that every voter registered must be verified to be legal and alive.
You are right, but then the DEEMS knew that when they started using this tactic. The polls require a valid Nevada ID be presented prior to voting but I wonder how many of these are going to be asking for absentee ballots.
I suppose it's theoretically possible that the Democrats are out-hustling the Republicans on voter registration, but the appearance of these "Voter Registration way up in battle ground states" articles in Democrat house organ papers in "Blue"/non-battle ground states does sound as if someone's attempting to offer an rationalization for vote tallies that will sound suspiciously like good old fashioned ballot box stuffing. Prior to the debate, where the Republicans once again showed their political ineptitude, I would have said, "surely the GOP is aware of this, and the party is preparing effective countermeasures". Post debate, however, I'm not convinced that anyone in the Bush Campaign has a clue on what to do about the fraud that will occur. It doesn't take much for a Lefty Democrat to rationalize fraud, perjury and dirty tricks. With the "Remember Florida 2000" battle cry to guide them, there is probably little the aptly nick-namded 'Rats won't do to counteract the "Republican's attempts to disenfranchise voters".
Same thing here in my big, (area) little, (population) mostly conservative county. We have a total year round population of about 18,000 and the County Clerk has received over 7,000 voter registrations in the last couple of months.
The next county over, last week received about a thousand new registrations... most of them using one of the same half dozen addresses.
A liberal activist judge from "up north" has declared that no IDs can be checked for registration or at the polls.
The Democrats are going to steal the election in NM once again. (Gore won here in 2000 by less than 400 after a "lost" ballot box was "found" at the last moment.... And absentee ballots were never counted in three counties.
Oh good grief people.
Let people sign up and vote. Isn't that what America is all about.
A TON of people are legitimately signing up. Who cares.
We can get people to go sign up and vote as well.
Get off your lazy butts and do something instead of whining about everything.
I hope we have 100% voter turn-out. GASP
There is fraud on BOTH sides...and don't act like there isn't.
Everyone knows this...
If there is fraud then it should be investigated. Otherwise...who cares. The more people that vote the better.
Are we scared of people voting? It sounds like it on this thread.
And don't give me the crap about "no we are not scared of people voting...we are scared of fraud"
Whewee,it smells of dead rats in Las Vegas or is that voter fraud I smell? I see another election similar to 2000, one big mess happening all over again, not just in Florida but nation wide! Plese somebody, tell me I'm wrong.
Some counties have registration that exceeds the population.
Wake up and smell the vote fraud... ACT is using Soros' millions to hire felons to go through the phone book and forge thousands of voter registrations... Project Vote just caught red-handed in election felonies, improperly certifying thousands more... One county (Franklin Co., OH) which grew by 26,000 population in the last four years has received 90,000 new registrations, which gives them more registered voters than residents of voting age... and on and on and on.
Go to keyword "votefraud" and read up a bit. There's no one here who has any objection to a legitimate voter legitimately registering to vote, even if they are far-left radical Democrats. What is going on here - and on an apparently unprecedented scale - is massive, deliberate, and organized fraud by the Democrats and allied groups throughout the nation.
Fraud on both sides? Find one example of GOP fraud, please, and let's compare.
I just hope that the fruadulent registrations can be found. But I think we also need to look at this: Even if they do have all these registrations, it still doesn't amount to a vote. They can register all they want, but the people still have to vote.
Have you been living in a cave,or under a rock???
People are worried that in 2048 we'll still be talking about the infamous 2004 voter fraud ....
Thousands of felons have been 'registering' thousands of imaginary people all around the county.
The last day for open registration was Friday. Now you have to go down to the election board to register.
What we need is a HUGH "get out the vote" campaign.I'm calling W's campaign office on Monday to volunteer.
I'm really sick to my stomach thinking about the vast opportunities for voter fraud this year.
You cannot enter the Hard Rock Casino gift shop without passing a very large staffed table set up in the entrance by the "nonpartisan" Rock the Vote. Looked like a fire hazard to me.
no they don't. the votes of those people can and are cast for them. that's where the voter fraud comes in. you don't think the Dems are stupid do you - its not the registration that counts, its the vote.
