Report: 308,000 Virginia voters registered in other states
Watchdog.org ^ | May 22, 2014 | Kenric Ward

RICHMOND, Va. — Some 308,000 Virginia voters are also registered elsewhere, according to an analysis of 22 states’ election records.

The finding follows Watchdog.org’s report of 44,000 people who appear to be registered in both Virginia and Maryland.

The latest survey found the 308,000 double registrations by matching names, birth dates and the last four digits of Social Security numbers.

The Virginia Voters Alliance, which reported the results, identified “big gaps” in the voter-registration process.

“Say you move to Kansas and tell the election office there that you were registered in Virginia when you submit your Kansas voter-registration form,” explained VVA president Reagan George. “If the Kansas election official is bureaucratically lazy or politically motivated your name never gets removed. The same thing can happen on the Virginia end, and you stay double registered.”

How many of the 308,000 voters cast multiple ballots in a single election is not known.

Most of them probably live in four counties. Fairfax and Arlington in Virginia, and Prince George and Montgomery in Maryland. Those “voters” can cover all four counties in the same day.

And, here is the crux of the issue: “How many of the 308,000 voters cast multiple ballots in a single election is not known.”

Voter ID would obviate this whole steaming pile of bovine excrement.

Only if you vote in both/all. Registration is another issue

After the NC report along the same lines, that one reporting actual votes cast in two different states by thousands of people with the same full date of birth and first and last names, I looked at the math involved. My first look was in error, when I came up with a very low probability of matches.

On further investigation it turns out that if you have a couple million voters in a state, it’s quite likely to have thousands of matches of birthdate, first and last name, to voters in other states, which is why I believe the North Carolina report never got traction.

I think the clear solution is to tag each voter registration with one’s Social Security number. It’s a unique number and the SS office maintains a list of current addresses, birthdays, and probably even citizenship. They also know when you’ve died.

Cross checking Social Security numbers of people voting on election day would eliminate most double voting, something that voter ID cards won’t accomplish because a person can still register in two different states. However, voter ID cards will weed out the people voting in the place of someone else who is known not to vote. Combine the two, voter ID’s and Social Security numbers, and we’ll be much more likely to have honest elections.

I previously posted that voter fraud ought to be worth 15 or 20 years in a federal penitentiary.

We are all victims of this crime. Make the penalty hurt.

Fraud has caused dems to be elected in Va. I think when Biden acted like he thought he was in NC when he was in Va and they laughed it was code that he knew some would vote in both states.

Virginia used the same voting machines that the Indiana Secretary of State decertified before the 2010 election There is a 200+ report that details the reason the machines weren’t allowed to be used in our state.
Any one from Virginia should look into it now to keep your vote pure

This is why I’ve always tried to call attention to the huge increase in absentee ballots. No way that’s not where these creeps are casting their second ballots.

Real voter fraud happens intentionally when a group votes the people who don't show up.

This whole thing about people moving and not canceling one voter registration before starting a new one is a red herring. It's bogus.

I assume this story is from a liberal source? It's democrats new meme - and it's a lie. No one cares about people moving...very few of those people will vote twice. Democrats know that... democrats also know how they do fraud... and this ain't it.

Knowing Virginia was an “in play” state, I spent a lot of time on the website, for vote results, during the 2012 election. I went out to grab a bite to eat, at 6:30 pm Pacific time (9:30pm in VA). Romney had a very healthy margin of almost 100,000 votes more than Obama. I was shocked, when I came back, 45 minutes later, refreshed the web page, and Romney was only up by about 5,000 votes. From that point, forward, I suspected the election was being stolen, right before my very eyes. This story seems to confirm my suspicions.

Hey, we have it on the top dog’s authority that there isn’t a “smidgen” of election fraud goin’ on out there. Now how can it be that’s not good enough for you? Conservatives need to be thrown in jail for no more than just being Conservative, I’ve heard someone from the Left say.

I’ve changed states multiple times. I don’t recall any state asking where I was previously registered. Is that common practice?

College kids voting where they go to school out of state. I live in a college town and the polling places are overrun with non-resident college students who probably also vote absentee back home.

The vast majority are Democrats, no doubt.

By how many votes did BO carry Virginia? By how many did McAwful get elected governor?

BTW, I see that little weasel Sarvis is back, this time running for Senator.

There was a period in my life when I lived in a variety of states, and registered to vote in each. The ONLY state that notified the prior state was Virginia, advising CA to take me off its rolls. I was copied on that letter. I am sure, however, that 35 years later I am still voting in Chicago.

You know they know, because it's not in the story.

Just like party affiliations on scandal stories.

You need to look at the precincts that submitted their tallies late.

I suspect you’d find that they were in Richmond, Hampton, Alexandria/Arlington and certain areas of Fairfax and Prince William Counties.

Where the people counting the ballots waited until they knew how many votes needed to be manufactured without it seeming too obvious they were doing so.

Seems logical to me. Sounds like the 2004 vote in WA State, when Christine Fraudoire (D) “defeated” Dino Rossi (R). Every time Rossi had a lead, election officials in King County (ultra liberal Seattle) would suddenly “discover” a box of uncounted ballots, that coincidentally, were just enough to put the DemoNIcrat, ahead. I really fear that control of elections have been lost, in our country :(

How silly a statement. I think it is irresponsible to assume fraud with no evidence. "Oh, I have evidence...the vote changed in 45 minutes." This is the type of grossly embarrassing comment that used to come from democrats.

Now it is stated by retrograde minds (different from low information) that accuse just because they don't like the outcome. Much is LOL, but it really is sad that people on my side are so brain dead.

Here is the reality to you since you have no evidence, except the vote changed in 45 minutes (guffawing at the moment). Northern Virginia is heavily democrat and casts about a third or more of the vote for the entire state. If you take away northern Virginia's votes, the republican would win every time, but you can't do that.

Here are some percentages for you to consider: Obama won in Arlington with 69% of the vote (I'm actually surprised it wasn't higher); Alexandria gave 71% of the vote to Obama; in Fairfax County (if it was a city, would be the 10th largest in the country), Obama won 60% of the vote. That is more than a 20 point advantage (because of the third parties) in the state's most populous region. A republican will never win in Virginia if the democrat beats the republican in Northern Virgnia in a landslide as did Obama. Northern Virginia has changed alot in the last 20 years. There are many foreign born in this area. Depending on the source, there are 20% to 30% foreign born in this area - many are Asian, especially Korean, Vietnamese and Indian. Those groups used to vote republican, but now they are solidly democrat.

I live in a part of Fairfax county, that one would think would be solidly republican, but it is not. Many of these people are government contractors or work for government contractors, not to mention government employees themselves. They vote democrat for obvious reasons. I know my area and my neighborhood and these people love to vote democrat. I see it up close.

Consider this: Virginia Beach, which is where I grew up and most of my family still is, crawls with military personnel and CBN. I realize many military vote by absentee in their home state, but many register locally. Romney only won with barely 50% of the vote in that city. That area has been trending democrat in the last decade, too. For Romney to have won, he needed to win Va. Beach handily and cut Obama's margins in Northern Virginia, which he did not do. that is why he lost. Not because of fraud. In Virginia, you need ID to vote; there is no early voting, with the exception of the normal absentee vote (you need to have a reason, such as work, vacation, hospital, etc.)

FreeRepublic used to be a place that hosted a lively and intelligent discourse. Now, it is a place in which people just spout all kinds of embarrassing blather.

Thanks for the reply. Respectfully, I never claimed to have evidence, nor made any statements of fact. I did say that this story seemed to “confirm my suspicion”. Further, ad hominem attacks undercut the validity of the person, who makes them. It’s fine to disagree with a point of view, but terms like “retrograde minds” and “brain dead” undercut the argument.

Well, I understand and my apologies if I offended. Yes, I know you did not claim you had evidence, so why make the charge? That was my whole point. Wild, unsubstantiated claims do reflect on the person making them, too. I get it - it’s easy to do, but all of us should do better to be thoughtful and that includes me. Have a good weekend.

With all due respect to a fellow Old Dominioner, I’d like to point out some aspects of your previous statement that may be inaccurate...
We do not have to provide picture ID to vote. Every time I have voted since moving to this precinct, I have provided not only my non-picture ID Voter’s Registration Card but also my Driver’s License as well as Military ID. The worker always states that I do not need to show picture ID but I always insist they check mine to verify I am who I say I am.
I have also “early voted” and it’s as easy as waltzing into the Voters Registrar’s office in the county and voting. No need for verification of reason for voting early. No one checks, no one swears to “tell the truth”, no one cares.
Lastly, I can see why some would discount yelling “voter fraud” after an election loss as being lazy, delusional, pathetic, etc. until we saw what happened in the recent election between Herring and the other guy. It was Minnesota all over again. And the “extra votes” were found in Fairfax Co.
Seems awfully convenient, you have to admit.
