    I know exactly what the smart-set will say. “Let it go! Focus on the future of the country! Don’t re-litigate the past. Enough with ‘fake news,’ and ‘witch hunt,’ and ‘crooked Hillary.” Know what I say? Please, Mr. President. Do the exact opposite. President Trump’s reelection campaign kicked off this week at a raucous rally in Orlando that must have exhausted Joe Biden just watching. The familiar chants returned. “Build the wall! Lock her up! CNN sucks!” (My personal favorite.) Also returning were the familiar critics who decried them. The aforementioned “news” network we love to hate broke away...

    I am my mothers care giver. She has been a lifelong Democrat. She is blind. She said she didn't want to vote but I noticed her mail in ballot was prefilled just yesterday. Is this legal and how can I find out if my mother voted? No wonder the local Democratic people were calling and stopping by her house wanting her ballot.
  • Why didn't DoJ prosecute FL election official for destroying ballots in 2016?

    Broward County, FL election head Brenda Snipes is back in the news, as a former candidate who ran against Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the 2016 Democratic primary wondered aloud in a tweet why the Department of Justice never prosecuted her for illegally destroying paper ballots from the race. Tim Canova got only 43% of the vote in that primary, but he challenged the results in court. While the case was being decided, Canova requested that Broward County hand over the thousands of paper ballots that had been cast. When Brenda Snipes' office refused, he sued - only to find out...
  • Nancy Pelosi's Democrats seek to impose California-style electoral rigging onto the rest of America

    Having their priorities, Nancy Pelosi's Democrats are focused on what matters most to them: Their own permanent rule. Right out the gate, they've put out this House bill, vowing to California-fy the nation's election laws. Former Justice department official, J. Christian Adams, writing in the Washington Examiner, has a disturbing report: Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has made a gargantuan overhaul of election law, campaign finance, and ethics rules the top priority of House Democrats. Contrast this move with the Republicans in 2017 — the Democratic Party and its allies understand there is a difference between winning elections versus big idea debates.H.R. 1,...
  • More than 6000 mail-in ballots in Florida were not counted: officials

    More than 6,000 mailed ballots in Florida went uncounted in November's midterm elections, according to a report by the Associated Press. Officials at the Florida Department of State informed a federal judge last week that 6,670 ballots that were mailed in ahead of the November 6 midterm election were left uncounted because they arrived after Election Day. Ballots mailed inside the U.S. must reach election offices by 7 p.m. on Election Day under current Florida law. It is not yet clear why the ballots did not make it to the election offices on time. According to The Associated Press, the...

    Internet billionaire Marc Benioff is urging the GOP Congress and President Donald Trump to fast-track 400,000 foreign visa-workers — plus 400,000 family members — to green cards, the U.S. job market, and the ballot box. “This is good for our economy,” Benioff said in a Tuesday tweet that was applauded by Silicon Valley lobbyists. “We need to grow our workers to grow our economy.” Benioff’s comment is a tautology: Expanding the population by importing more than 800,000 people would obviously grow the nation’s economy, retail sales, government taxes, company profits, and Wall Street stock options. But Benioff’s cheap-labor importation plan...

    Mounting evidence of voter fraud in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District could indefinitely delay the certification of a winner, as state election officials investigate whether hundreds of absentee ballots were illegally cast or destroyed. The North Carolina State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement has no plans to certify Republican Mark Harris’s 905-vote victory over Democrat Dan McCready, according to an agenda of a board meeting scheduled for Friday morning. The board is collecting sworn statements from voters in rural Bladen and Robeson counties, near the South Carolina border, who described people coming to their doors and urging them to...

    The political climate in the United States has been perpetually explosive for what feels like generations. This sentiment was evident as voters went to the polls for the 2018 midterm election. As a result of this, the 2018 midterm had the highest voter turnout since 1914. Despite the passion exhibited by both parties this election, in the shadow looms a serious issue that can affect the very foundation of our democracy. That issue is the growing distrust in our election results.According to recent surveys, 31% of American voters have “not very much” or “no confidence at all” in our election...

    Nine people face felony charges in connection with a fraud scheme in which they offered cash or cigarettes to homeless people on skid row in downtown Los Angeles in exchange for hundreds of fake or forged signatures on ballot petitions and voter registration forms, prosecutors said. Los Angeles County prosecutors Tuesday announced the charges, which include circulating a petition with false names, voter fraud and registering a nonexistent person during election cycles in 2016 and this year. “They paid individuals to sign the names,” said Officer Deon Joseph, the senior lead officer on skid row, told The Times in September....

Everyone who saw this was shocked. This is in Sun Prairie WI. And yup. It’s not exactly a red district. How do I get pictures and video out. And who in the hell do I call?

    FORT WORTH Members of an organized voter fraud ring have been arrested and indicted on charges they targeted and, in one case stole, the votes of elderly voters on the city’s north side. Four people were arrested — Leticia Sanchez, Leticia Sanchez Tepichin, Maria Solis and Laura Parra — after being indicted on 30 felony counts of voter fraud, according to a statement from the Texas Attorney General’s Office. These people allegedly were paid to target older voters on the north side “in a scheme to generate a large number of mail ballots and then harvest those ballots for specific...

    Democrats are counting on Generation Z, many of whom recently gained the right to vote, to help turn Congress blue in the midterm elections. But 49 cents may be all it takes to keep these post-Millennials from exercising their civic duty. On Tuesday, a Fairfax County, Virginia official said they are noticing a disturbing trend: young people failing to mail in their absentee ballots because they don't know how to get a stamp. Lisa Connors, of the Fairfax County Office of Public Affairs, ran a focus group this summer comprised of colleges students interning in various county departments. "One thing...

    The Washington State Supreme Court on Friday overturned a lower court's decision on the state's controversial gun control ballot initiative, I-1639. The Court ruled unanimously that the initiative must appear on the November ballot. "The problem with the petitions is that they failed to underline new law and strike through removed law so that the reader could not know the current law, added law and subtracted law," Alan Gottlieb, Founder and Executive Director of SAF, previously told Townhall. "If they are so careless about knowing what is, or is not, shown on their own petitions, how is anyone else supposed...

    A candidate running to be Arizona’s next secretary of state said the state should stop offering ballots printed in other languages and provide them only in English. The Arizona Republic reported Wednesday that Republican candidate Steve Gaynor made the proposal during a candidate forum over the weekend. "My printing plant in L.A. printed an information pamphlet not too long ago. It had 18 languages on it," said Gaynor, who owns a printing business that creates pamphlets for California elections, according to the Republic. "I would be the first to say it should be ... ballots, information pamphlets, all the material...

    Local officials are investigating after a Michigan county ran short on ballots after a historic voter turnout for a spate of elections on Tuesday, The Detroit Free Press reported. The news outlet reported Wednesday that 34 percent of voters attempted to cast a ballot in a host of state, local and national elections on the ballot in Oakland County. That number was five percentage points higher than area officials were expecting. Officials attributed the shortage to a confluence of factors, including two open Congressional seats to replace Reps. David Trott (R) and Sander Levin (D). Oakland County Clerk Lisa Brown...

    Rather than print new ballots before next month’s primary, Maryland elections officials decided Thursday to notify Democratic voters that former candidate Kevin Kamenetz has died and that a vote for him will be counted as vote for Valerie Ervin, his former running mate. The state Board of Elections has said that it could not print new ballots to reflect Ervin’s last-minute gubernatorial candidacy largely because a single paper mill makes the only paper that Maryland’s voting machines can read. **SNIP** Ervin decided to run after Kamenetz died suddenly May 10.
