Yesterday's story about South Dakota was an eye opener.

Yes, it was. Also, Rush mentioned on his show about something up in Minnesota but I have not heard anything else about it. I search FR and nothing. I suppose, though, all you have to do is pick a state and there is fraud there.

I'm afraid this election the fraud is going to be very, very blatant and the Dems will be big beneficiaries of it. My prediction: The dems admit there is a problem, say we have live with the results this time, but now lets fix it. Then they will push same day voting/registration and motor voter as the way to fix it. Just my prediction.

I saw the Minnesota story on this page yesterday. A leftist organization in NY is running ads to encourage young lefties to visit Minnesota and vote for Wellstone. Since Minnesota allows same-day voter registration, anyone can walk up and vote; no ID required.

it's been a hugh problem ever since they started computer counting and eliminated the hand marked and hand counted ballots.

It's as simple as "program your winner"!

The numbers have changed considerably on this poll:

Small problem 36%
Growing problem 31%
Huge problem 32%

I voted the latter.

Freep this hard.

This is THE issue.

This is the ONLY issue.

If the Republicans can meet this challenge they win for decades to come.

If they are spineless wimps, this nation will be as bad as a bankrupt South American cluster-f--- like Brasil or Argentina, with Imelda Clinton as our Maximum Leader.

The thing in Minn. was about the Democrats trying to get young people bused into Minn. to help get out the vote for Wellstone likely leading to illegal votes from these people.

Now, I have a question. How exactly is it that requiring ID restricts voters? I see this quoted all the time from Democrats. What are the mechanics of how this stops voters?besides not having ID which is easily remedied.

Right now, in Minnesota, you walk to the polling place with a friend who is already registered, he vouches for you - says he knows who you are and that you live in the precinct, and you get to vote.

There was a bill in the legislature last year that would limit the number of new voters that a registered voter would be allowed to vouch for to ten, but the Democrats killed it.

IMHO it is a BIG problem.

I live in NC and there is a database on the internet for all to see that has every registered voter, where he/she votes, political party, etc. Also, you can view a history of voter - what elections he voted in and how (absentee, in person).

According to my understanding, on election day,at different times during the day, the poll workers will give a list to the parties of who has not voted, with the idea they are going to call the people. From what I have heard, these people look up the history and close to closing time will send bus loads of people to vote for these people.

I think that is a red herring argument. They are putting that up as a throw away point. When they do agree, they say, okay, ID is fine. Now, it should be okay to present it on election day. We gave in on ID, now how much more unreasonable do you want to be? So they say.

We've seen a lot of evidence of systematic voter fraud. The democrats were caught red-handed cheating in Santa Anna CA and in New Orleans in 1996, law enforcement proved the case against them and yet nothing was done to punish the perps. In 1998 the dems got caught cheating in Miami and in this case somebody was punished. But this has become a pattern for the democrats it seems. The news media should focus in on the corruption, instead they ignore it. Yesterday they passed some new law in washington to allegedly deal with this, but apparently it is a very weak reform that will accomplish nothing. This is a massive problem in our country and nobody cares about it seemingly.

Rush just reported Broward County lost 18 electronic touch screen machines.

It would be no problem to have machines with DUPLICATE SERIAL NUMBERS.

Fraud lying in wait.

WE NEED BROWARD POLL WATCHERS.

Do you know if all states have a public database like the one I described in NC?

I voted for the second choice on the poll, but after reading your post (#13) I see the third choice is the correct answer. This is stomach churning.

Actually, I just found this out today - a friend called, absolutely furious.

It took me less than a minute to find the site (he didn't give me the address, just told me to see if I could find) and all you need is the person's first and last name.

Do they allow Republicans to bring their friends to vote and vouch for them as well? Or is it the usual double standard, that allows DemocRATS to ignore the rules but demands that Republicans strictly adhere to both the letter and the spirit of the law?

Note: This is a statement with question marks instead of periods-not questions-we all know the answer.

FR was responsible for breaking the MN story. See the history at this thread:

Socialist Students "illegally" helping Wellstone

On the evening of October 11th, I got hit with the pop-up at the website of the Democratic Socialists of America when I was doing research on the so-called US House Progressive Caucus. I waited until October 12th to make mention on this FR thread of this pop-up (which has since been re-written to alter/cover up the original text and is no longer functioning as a pop-up).

I THINK IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF SOME HOTSHOT WOULD TAKE 5-12 news items of Democrud voter cheating and put in the comments section at that poll site. Citing, of course the news sources.

Should say are the Democrats trying to steal the elections everywhere.

I said we need to keep them from registering dead people, by using photo ID and a nationwide computerized system!!

This is a crucial matter, our elections (and the rights of CITIZENS) are turning into bad jokes. California.

Excerpt: "Will California become the seventh state in the nation to permit people to register to vote on Election Day?

Proposition 52, on the state ballot Nov. 5, would do just that. If it passes, it could open the door to wide-scale voter fraud, in which California's massive illegal alien population determines the outcome of both local and national elections."

Damn, we all know that this is a Democratic scam. And to allow even non-citizens to vote?!!!

Did you all see this comment?

The Republicans call everything voter fraud, even complaining when a New Jersery Court says legally registered people should be allowed to have a choice of candidates. 10/17/02 11:41:30 AM MST

Well, well, well. I wonder how this person felt when the SCOTUS voted 7-2, not 5-4 as the lying media claims to halt the illegal "manual recounts" in Florida.

And the "New Jersery (sic)" court ruling is a Kangaroo disgrace...notice how touchy they are about being found out "Repulicans call everything voter fraud." No, just voting the dead, throwing military ballots in the trash, using Union Thug buses to bring deadbeats to the polls, and allowing illiterate people to write a big X as their signature.

How big of a problem is election day and voter registration fraud in the U.S.?

From Newsmax/10/17/Limbacher..."Hillary Clinton is remarkably candid in explaining why she was one of only two U.S senators to vote against even a weak attempt to stop election fraud.

"This would make it more difficult to vote in New York," she told the New York Post.

Yes, it's such an agonizing ordeal when people have to reach back, take their wallet out of their pocket or purse, find their driver's license or Social Security card, stick the card back in the wallet, and stow the wallet. It's cruel and inhumane.

Of course, Democrat fraud was so much easier in the good old days when a New Yorker merely had to sign his name - or anyone's name - to "prove" his identity before voting."

I think that answers the question.
