    When Jena Jones opened up her absentee ballot last week, there was a lot more in the envelope than she expected. In addition to actual ballot, she and her husband, David, noticed multiple pieces of advocacy from Democrats. “I found a letter from the governor of Virginia asking me to please vote Democrat and ‘help keep Virginia blue’ this year. Then I got a letter from the Fairfax County Democratic Committee, giving me a step-by-step, yes-and-no what I should vote for as far as the meal tax and all those other things on the ballot,” Jena explained to WND and...

  • The Left’s Faux Martyr: A 92 year old black woman's ability to vote is not harmed by NC's new law

    The Left has a new martyr. Rosanell Eaton is a 92-year-old black woman with a compelling story about the harm done to vulnerable people, especially members of minority groups, by North Carolina’s new voter-ID law. But none of it holds up. Rosanell Eaton isn’t a martyr at all, in fact. The law, signed by Republican governor Pat McCrory a week ago, ends same-day voter registration, pre-registration of high-school students prior to their 18th birthday, and straight-ticket voting. It also reduces the number of days of early voting by a week, from 17 days to 10 (though early-voting hours and locations...

    Matilde Galindo, who is 75 and illiterate, has no clue who she voted for last week. She said that late in June, Daisy Cabrera, an acquaintance of a distant relative, offered to help her register as a Miami-Dade County voter. Then, on July 22, Cabrera dropped by the Hialeah home that Galindo shares with her husband, Basilio, 78. “She filled out the ballot and asked me to sign it,” Galindo said Saturday. “On that long ballot, she made little marks and told me, ‘This one and this one, that’s how you should vote.’ ” Galindo and her husband said they told...

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Daytona Beach City Commissioner Derrick Henry and his campaign manager were arrested Wednesday, charged with committing absentee ballot fraud during Henrys 2010 re-election campaign. The arrest of Henry and Genesis Robinson comes a little more than two months after Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Ann McFall requested an investigation into irregularities in absentee ballot requests coming into her office. McFall brought her concerns to the Volusia County Sheriffs Office in August, prompting the Sheriffs Office and the State Attorneys Office to immediately launch a joint investigation that ultimately led to the filing of a dozen felony...

    Will Those Fighting To Protect The Right To Vote Not Have Their Votes Counted? A commentary by J. D. Longstreet ****************************** There is concern that Obama’s DOJ, under the leadership of Eric Holder, the US Attorney General, might not be enforcing the new Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act as vigorously as they should. The MOVE Act, which was passed last October, is supposed to ensure that servicemen and women serving overseas have plenty of time to get in their absentee ballots. However, if the DOJ does not enforce this law by holding the states to compliance, thousands of...

    American Thinker ^ | May 11, 2010 | David Pietrusza
    Card check -- the scheme that violates the traditional American freedom of the secret ballot in labor union organizing elections -- has just captured a beachhead in New York State general election law, arguably opening the floodgates to massive ACORN-style voter fraud and intimidation. The event at hand involves absentee ballot "reforms" hurriedly signed into law by New York's hapless accidental governor David A. Paterson. In the era before the Australian "secret ballot" came to America, voting could be a tricky -- and often violent -- proposition. Goons from such big-city machines as Boss Tweed's Tammany Hall knew how you...

    Why does one person have so many absentee ballots in MA when it should be just one per person? You would think absentee ballots would be one of those documents strictly controlled, not something a community activist would have stacks of. Except of course… Here is the video posted recently by Michelle Malkin who credits Election Journal.

    The latest polls show the race for Massachusetts Senator is too close to call. Looking at the history of the state's entrenched Democratic political machine, if Republican Scott Brown wins he better win big as Secretary of State has been known to play a little fast and loose with absentee ballots. In 2008 was found to have violated the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act passed in 2002, in which he failed to report and collect the number sent and the number returned of absentee ballots from overseas Military personnel registered to vote in Massachusetts. After an investigation by...

    Military Voting Rights by: Evan Sumortin, June 16, 2009 The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was originally passed to fight against discriminatory voting practices that had been responsible for the widespread disenfranchisement of African-Americans. Nevertheless, there is still a significant group of disenfranchised Americans: the men and women of the armed forces serving to defend our country abroad. At the weekly bloggers briefing held June 9 at the Heritage Foundation, Edward Fitzmaurice Jr. of Military Voting Rights USA presented his effort to pass a resolution calling for express mail to bring military ballots home from overseas. A survey by the...

    Decision Voids Absentee Ballot Apps in Ohio: It is interesting to juxtapose Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner's decision to allow some absentee voters to register and vote on the same day with another recent decision that has the effect of invalidating over 1,000 absentee ballot applications collected by the McCain campaign. More than 1,000 absentee ballot applications in Greater Cincinnati have been ruled invalid because Republican Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign printed a version of the form with an extra, unneeded box on it. The forms were sent to more than 1 million registered voters statewide, according to a...

    ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Election Board discovered that a woman dead since October cast an absentee ballot in the city presidential primary, an official said. The case is being turned over today to the Department of Justice, said Scott Leiendecker, the Republican director for the St. Louis Election Board. Leiendecker said officials at the election board believe that the woman's son cast the ballot by purporting that his mother signed with an "X" and then he signed as a witness. Leiendecker would not divulge the name of the woman or her son.

Broward County Commissioner John Rodstrom discovered the stamp while reviewing absentee ballots. There was no name on the envelope, so the vote didn't count. Stamp mailed on absentee ballot

    Cuyahoga County elections officials began scanning absentee ballots Monday with a judge's permission, despite a request by state officials that counties hold off until Election Day. About 70,000 ballots needed to be scanned in the county, the state's most populous, Cuyahoga elections director Michael Vu said. His office was determined to get through all of them Monday, even if it took until midnight. Franklin County, which includes Columbus, also started scanning absentee ballots Monday, officials said. Counties wanted to begin tabulating the ballots early because of the large volume turned in under a new state law liberalizing absentee voting. The...

    In Black Hawk County, Iowa, usually Democratic territory, the election office has seen an interesting shift in who's requesting absentee ballots this year: "Through Wednesday, absentee ballots have been returned to the county election office by 3,994 registered Democrats, 2,264 registered Republicans and 1,396 voters who list no party affiliation. But compared to six days before the 2002 election, the number of absentee ballots returned by Democrats are down 780 ballots while Republicans enjoyed a net gain of 391 ballots. Absentee balloting among those listed with another party or "no party" also are up 331 ballots over 2002. Black Hawk...

    ANNAPOLIS (AP) -- The number of Marylanders requesting absentee ballots already exceeds the number of absentee votes cast in the last gubernatorial election, and requests are still coming in at a rapid rate, with three weeks left until the Nov. 7 general election. A law that took effect this year removed all restrictions on the use of absentee ballots, which previously were available only to voters who could not make it to the polls on Election Day.
