Posted on 11/01/2016 10:37:41 AM PDT by Kaslin
How many voters do you know who are more than 100 years old? Or 110 years old? Or, how about 126 years old?
Hundreds of voters in recent elections in three eastern Pennsylvania counties were more than 100 years of age, with many over 110, according to official voter registration rolls open to the public.
The research, collected by volunteers working with the American Civil Rights Union, had some head-shaking surprises. According to the data, one gentleman from Montgomery County, whose birth date was listed as August 7, 1853, allegedly voted in 2008 at age 155 and in 2012 at age 159.
The nations oldest senior citizen, Susannah Mushatt Jones of New York City, died at age 116 in May. So the demographic probability that all of these Pennsylvania voters who clock in at 115 or 116 years old or more are legitimate voters, defies reason and logic. In fact, USA Today reports that the only person left alive who was born in the 19th Century is Emma Morano of Italy. The oldest living American, as of October 27, 2016, is Adele Dunlap of New Jersey, 113, who was born on Dec. 12, 1902.
In the Pennsylvania data, compiled from voter rolls in Philadelphia, Allegheny and Montgomery counties, hundreds more voters are listed with birthdates of 1/1/1800, which would make them more than 200 years old. When asked about the 1800 date, officials blamed it on Y2K, the year 2000, when computers were alleged to go haywire because of the change in millennia. That was 16 years ago.
The presence of so many unlikely voters indicates that officials have not kept voter rolls up to date as required by federal law. There is a strong likelihood that similar statistics would turn up in Pennsylvanias other 64 counties.
Based on information obtained in a lawsuit by the American Civil Rights Union that forced Philadelphia election officials to open their books for inspection, the Public Interest Legal Foundation compiled a report showing that thousands of convicted felons are (illegally) on the citys voting rolls, and that dozens of noncitizen aliens have voted in past elections.
Furthermore, the report, Aliens and Felons: Thousands on the Voting Rolls in Philadelphia, states that, Election officials in Philadelphia take no proactive steps to prevent or remove alien registration, and that of the thousands of ineligible felons on the rolls, election officials do nothing about it and dont even think its a problem.
In the recent research, Allegheny Countys voter rolls for the April 26, 2016 primary election reveal that 367 people were listed with birthdates of 1/1/1800. Another 106 had birthdates from 1890 to 1915, with voters ages ranging from 101 to 126.
In the 2014 mid-term election, 427 people in Allegheny County who voted had birthdates of 1/1/1800, and 108 had birthdates from 1890 to 1914 (ages 100 to 114 at the time of voting). This includes 58 aged 110 or more.
In 2010, the United States Census found only 330 super centenarians, that is, people 110 or older, in the entire nation. However, voter rolls in the three combined Pennsylvania counties turned up at least 176 super centenarians who voted in 2012, not counting the hundreds listed with the 1/1/1800 birthdate, who could be of any age.
At the very least, the presence of so many improbable voters on the rolls indicates that officials in these three counties have not followed Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, which requires periodic voter roll cleanup using demographic data, including Social Security lists. The names of people who have moved away, have double entries, or are deceased, are supposed to be removed.
A series of lawsuits by the ACRU against counties in Mississippi and Texas over the past two years has led to court-settled consent decrees to clean up registration records that contain more registered voters than age-eligible resident citizens.
These latest findings in Pennsylvania, along with recent reports of dead people on the rolls in Colorado and California, add to a growing body of data indicating that the nation is in dire need of a concerted effort to make sure that the people doing the voting are legally entitled to do so.
Pennsylvanias voter rolls and Philadelphias in particular need immediate attention. Corrupt voter rolls are the prime ingredient for vote fraud, which we are told does not exist despite the growing list of glaring examples.
As we approach the most consequential election of our lifetimes, its not too much to ask election officials to make sure voter registrations are accurate so that every citizens legal vote counts.
According to the data, one gentleman from Montgomery County, whose birth date was listed as August 7, 1853, allegedly voted in 2008 at age 155 and in 2012 at age 159.
No more unusual than Obama using the SS# of one of Michelle’s dead relatives.
I’ll make this observation. Occasionally, I will return to my county court house, and do business. Based on various moments over the past decade....I’ve reached the opinion that the majority of people who work in the building are illiterate, non-multi-task capable, and barely able to type.
Now, maybe this is just one single county and just some historical angle to it. But if this is the norm around every single county in the US, then I’m not surprised about the voter rolls at all.
Oh, that's what the ACRU is. I always thought it was the Japanese branch of the ACLU.
Hillary is way ahead with all of the World War I veterans. Rumor is that thousands of them are voting early for her in Philly and Northern VA.
The other two are Violet Brown, born March 10, 1900, living in Jamaica, and Nabi Tajima, born August 4, 1900, living in Japan.

Multiple raids going on in several states due to Hillary Clinton campaign committing Voter fraud will update turn scanners on EPIC RAIDS!
A long time ago (1978), I had a patient who was a Spanish-American War vet.
May he RIP.
>>The presence of so many unlikely voters indicates that officials have not kept voter rolls up to date as required by federal law.
And what are the penalties for breaking that federal law?
did they cast a vote?
On the phone just a few minutes ago, my cousin in Idaho insisted that there is no voter fraud ... then conceded that ‘both parties do it’ when I pointed to the imp[ossible ages of some voters in several states. He has already voted for illary because he is a Soros fanboy!
Trump should put clearing the dead and putting in transparent voting standards as on of his first year agendas.
I am sick of the fraud and election rigging.
Not the Chinese branch?
Similar problems in Indiana....856,000 questionable registrations—and some well over 110 years old.
Also many UNDER voting age.
We have to clean out the USA voting rolls once & for all. Trash can what exists now-—starting Feb, 1, 2017-—on an EO from Trump—every single eligible person MUST re-register & MUST do so AT a county facility. No more ‘clipboards roving around the mall registering voters. No one is checking ID-—hey are just getting paid for every signature & they don’t care.
Keep this new re-registration program open until July 4, 2017. Then-—CAREFULLY verify every single registration-—
NO FELONS—NO ILLEGALS-—NO persons who have lost their voting privileges.
Bet the ‘number of eligible voters’ drops dramatically & then the number of active voters in every election will be larger——
ALSO-— MAKE ENGLISH the official language of the USA for voting & no more printing ballots & sample ballots in different languages.
LIVE here-—Think you should be able to vote? LEARN ENGLISH. NO MORE EXCUSES.....
You are a racist. If you were in charge, Hussein Obama would NEVER have been elected. Now apologize and welcome the peaceful migrants.
If the peaceful Muslim imigrants and others know we really like them, maybe they won't have to kill so many Americans as they flood into the US so they can be in charge./sarc
You’d have to be 121 today to have been old enough to vote for Wilson’s election in 1916.
The oldest actually living voters, maybe voted in 1920.
“According to the data, one gentleman from Montgomery County, whose birth date was listed as August 7, 1853, allegedly voted in 2008 at age 155 and in 2012 at age 159.”
Damn. Maybe Ben Franklin is still voting.
