VIDEO: NH poll workers shown handing out ballots in dead peoples’ names By Alex Pappas - The Daily Caller 1:15 PM 01/11/2012

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Video footage provided exclusively to The Daily Caller shows election workers in New Hampshire giving out ballots in the names of dead voters at multiple voting precincts during the state’s primary election on Tuesday.

The bombshell video is the work of conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe and his organization, Project Veritas.

Voters in the Granite State are not required to present identification to vote. O’Keefe’s investigators were able to obtain ballots under the names of dead voters at polling locations Tuesday by simply asking for them, he said.

“Live free or die,” an election worker told one of the investigators in the video. “This is New Hampshire. No ID needed.”

Where have been the “good’ politicians, media and law enforcement on these issues?

The right to vote is a cherished fundamental right, and its integrity must never be compromised.

The Mexicans don’t mess around with “voter fraud”

.here’s how they deal with voter fraud issues south of the border....and ..its all you need to know about the treasonous, malignant American Left....

“...the Mexican Voter I.D. card has NINE security characteristics, including a fingerprint, a photograph, watermarks and holograms. What is more, in Mexico, the lists of electors that are distributed to political parties include the photo and the full name and address of the electors.”

I think it is the hope of the career politician that all elections stop and they get to stay in office. You must die in office or retire to be replaced...thus the end of America.
It seems as though we are getting close doesn’t it.

The Constitution is ignored in our elections.

If Americans took voting as seriously as they take whether Bradgelina are going to get married, maybe we would eventually get an honest election. IOWA and NH process should be abolished. This type of stuff makes honest peoples votes null and void.

While I agree with your statements, the unfortunate fact is that both Iowa and New Hampshire, while slightly leaning Democrat states, are all to typical of what goes on in most of America.

But, don't forget to bring to bring that ID if you need to unclog that drain.

What does this tell you where America is heading? In the garbage dump because of communists criminals that have polluted the entire system and simple corrections like voter ID would solve much of it.

Conservatives cannot get our act together, because the establishment republican party thwarts our efforts with OPEN PRIMARIES.
Democrats and independents dilute our vote.

They also do not fight very hard for voter ID laws.

Best way is to elect conservatives locally who will then pass laws requiring closed primaries and strict voter ID laws in every state.

Why does the rats feel the need to not show their ID’s and why do they sue to stop showing ID’s?

O’Keefe is brilliant, I love him, but you have to notice the pattern. WHO are the people able to upstage the biggest media machine in the whole world?

Former gift-shop clerks, recent college grads, hot girls in mini-skirts.

It's not just people who are dead. Probably a bigger problem is people who just moved out of the State, or maybe even just to a different voting precinct. My daughter moved out of NJ back in 2003 or so. Her name changed in 2005. Every time I go to vote, usually twice a year, I see her (old) name in the registration book and I tell the folks there that she should be removed from the rolls. They always thank me and tell me that they will leave a note to whomever directing that she be deleted. But she was still there in November 2010. We don't require IDs here either.

Boston Herald

Dead man voting: Texas man tries to cast posthumous ballot

By Joe Battenfeld | Wednesday, January 11, 2012 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Election 2012 Photo

MANCHESTER, N.H. — A mystery man trying to vote in the New Hampshire primary using a dead man’s name got caught by an eagle-eyed voting supervisor in Manchester, then disappeared before police could corral him.

“We take a lot of pride in this primary,” Gloria Pilotte, the Ward 9 supervisor who stopped the voter fraud, told the Herald.

“I’m very confident about the way we do this in New Hampshire.”

The man, dressed in a suit and tie, did not say why he was trying to vote as the recently deceased person and would not identify any group he was representing.

“He said, ‘You’ll soon find out,’ ” Pilotte said.

In past primaries, some candidates or groups have tried to challenge the results or demand recounts based on claims of voting irregularities.

The man, who admitted being from Texas, almost got away with the fraud. He came in to the polling place and gave election officials the name of a man who was still on the voter list. Voters here don’t have to present ID if they are registered.

But Pilotte recognized the name and knew the man had died within the past 10 days. Pilotte said the voter list wasn’t updated because the man had died so recently.

She suspects the fraudulent voter got the name by checking recent obituaries.

Mass.: No ID needed; give your address (or any address)
then your name (or any name) and get a ballot. Someone could show up before I do at my precinct and get a ballot in
my name, no questions asked! As long as you say the address
and name and they match.

This was a PRIMARY, a function of the DemonRat and Repugnican clubs. It has little to do with the actual, Constitutionally controlled election.

I wish that he had held his fire for the real election. Now they are tipped off.

I have a palm in new Boston NH and he said come election time he and others have seen coaches and vans from MA bringing in lots of voters in.

This crap needs sorting out but of course the GOP will do nothing as usual and now dead people, Dems, kooks, Libs etc all get to choose our candidate

James did a great job voting for recently deceased folk.

But even better would have been to vote for living Democrats who hold public office or liberals in the local media.

What would be more perfect than a Democrat city council-person or state figure going to vote and finding out someone voted for them already.

“This was a PRIMARY, a function of the DemonRat and Repugnican clubs. It has little to do with the actual, Constitutionally controlled election.”

The NH election laws apply to primary elections just as they do for general elections. This was all legal; that’s the problem. The laws need to be changed.

Actually, the “hero” of the Boston Herald story, the woman who knew the voter had died and who challenged the guy who came in and said his name, MIGHT have broken the law. I don’t know if the law allows the election judges to challenge a person they know isn’t a legitimate voter.

The laws are NOT designed to prevent illegitimate votes. That woman prevented (actually only thought she prevented) an illegitimate vote. She might be in trouble.

Indeed. If you have any doubts, just wait.

I'll bet after they're done investingating this we'll find out that his instincts are so good he managed to show up at the only place this happened, at the only time it was happening.
