    Burying the dead is a work of mercy. So, too, is voting for them, according to Sister Marguerite Kloos. Or at least that’s what she thought last year until Ohio investigators nabbed her for an act of voter fraud. This week she plead guilty to the charge of voting twice, acknowledging that she forged the signature of a deceased nun, Sister Rose Marie Hewitt, on an absentee ballot.“When the absentee ballot was received at Ms. Hewitt’s address, (Kloos) opened the envelope, forged Ms. Hewitt’s signature, voted Ms. Hewitt’s ballot, and mailed the ballot back to the Board of Elections,” according...

    State District Judge Tim Sulak issued an order to Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade to cease and desist in her offices efforts to remove deceased voters from the rolls. In his ruling, Sulak said that the Secretary has failed to demonstrate sufficient grounds for excluding these voters. Just because a person is deceased does not mean that person has no interest in the elections outcome. Has a deceased parent no concern for the well-being of his children? Of course he does. To arbitrarily deny this interest is discriminatory and, therefore, illegal. The Judge rejected the Secretarys argument that it...

    President Obamas reelection campaign launched a national drive Friday to counter new restrictive voter-access laws, which advisers said threaten his electoral chances in November. Organizers will fan out in key swing states this weekend to teach volunteers and voters how to navigate a series of laws passed by Republican-controlled state legislatures imposing stricter identification requirements, limiting early voting and making it harder to organize voter-registration drives. It is the beginning of a months-long effort, campaign officials said, to combat what they described as a Republican effort to stifle voting among young people and minorities, two groups that traditionally tend to...

    With MA leading the nation of "deadwood" voters on their registration rolls, it's entirely possible that the Brown/Coakley race could be decided "from the beyond", so to speak. In Nov 2009, CNS News reported on the study done by Aristotle, Inc that noted: In Massachusetts, 116,483 registered voters are dead, 3.38 percent of the states total of registered voters. Another 538,567, or 15.6 percent, had moved to an area outside of where they are registered to vote. When you consider that uber-progressive Ed Schultz admitted he'd have no moral problems committing voter fraud in order to defeat Brown on his...

    A new study of the nation's voter registration records finds 3.3 million dead voters are still on the rolls - including an estimated 116,483 in Massachusetts - while another 12.9 million who are ineligible also remain. The study was done by Aristotle International Inc., a Washington, D.C. technology company that specializes in election-related programming and database services for public officials and agencies. Not only does this raise concerns about potential voter fraud, but from the interest of campaign consultants, ineligible or expired voters could lead to a waste of resources, John Aristotle Phillips, CEO of Aristotle, told CNS News.

After obtaining the list of voters who participated in Novembers election, the group hired an independent firm who specializes in death suppression for direct mailing lists to review the data. The process, which involved matching names and addresses to state death records, bore troubling results. According to Minnesota statute 201.13, the commissioner of health is to report monthly the name, address, date of birth, and county...

    Over 2,800 people who were already dead may have "voted" in last November's election in Minnesota -- an indication either of voter fraud, or of record-keeping so flawed that it leaves the state vulnerable to fraudulent ballots being cast according to a government watchdog group. Minnesota Majority, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with several Republican supporters, is calling for a federal investigation into Minnesota's election practices. "The secretary of state's office is now in what I interpret to be panic mode," Minnesota Majority founder Jeff Davis tells Newsmax. According to Davis, the issue of deceased persons on the voter rolls dates...

    The wickedly funny and witty political columnist and bestselling author Ann Coulter (or as I call her the blonde bomber) once wrote that when liberals pass by a graveyard, they see potential voters. I would take it further: when liberals see hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens swarming over our unprotected borders, they see potential voters. An added bonus is that these illegal aliens can't speak English and are ripe for indoctrination by the Democrat Party's Hispanic overseers within the "liberal plantation." Do you think this writer exaggerates? Just look at the recent congressional race in southern California between Bilbray...

Rendell said that the bill, which passed the legislature last week on largely parti-line votes, would have the effect of disenfranchising those without easy access to identification, including nursing-home residents, displaced families, the very poor and those without a driver's license. In addition, he said that the identification requirement, which now applies only to people voting at a polling place for the first time, would slow the voting process...

The sweep this month also found 36,000 voters who appear to be registered in two counties. The manager of the new $6 million database project, Pam Floyd, says the names have been flagged for further scrutiny. Snohomish County immediately canceled the voter registrations for the more than 1,400 dead people. The state has 3.5 million registered voters. Monthly sweeps are planned for duplicate and deceased voters. In March, officials plan to create the first comprehensive list of...

The investigation by WMC-TV uncovered several names of voters, which according to Shelby County Election Commission records, cast ballots as much as eight and 10 years after federal records show they died. I certainly have no idea how any of this could have happened, commission administrator James Johnson said. He said he would turn the results of the stations investigation over to the district attorney for further investigation. Prosecutors...

    Results of a state senate election in western Tennessee showed Democrat Ophelia Ford had edged Republican Terry Roland in the race to fill the seat previously held by Fords brother, John, who was forced to resign after being indicted on bribery charges. The margin of victory was just 13 votes out of 8,750 cast. The margin of victory may have been provided by 60 deceased voters. Buster Chops, spokesman for the Tennessee Democratic Party, credited an aggressive outreach program to register and cast votes for recently departed Tennesseeans. Republicans tend to overlook this segment of the population, Chops said. Its...

Ford said Thursday he's opened his own investigation into allegations that two dead voters cast ballots in the September state Senate race that his sister, Ophelia Ford, won by 13 votes. Ford said he's not prepared to make any accusations, yet suggested evidence of any skulduggery will lead to Republicans, not his own Democratic Party. "It's gotten to (where people are saying), 'Hey, we're out here voting dead people.' It is clear that is not the...

    Election records of a September special election that put Ophelia Ford in a state Senate seat show that someone may have used the name of a man who had been dead for six weeks to vote. Ford, a Democrat, beat Republican challenger Terry Roland by 13 votes in a race in which 8,750 ballots were cast. The election was to replace Ford's brother John Ford, who resigned in May after being indicted on bribery charges. The name Joe L. Light was entered into the poll registration book during the Sept. 15 election at the Memphis precinct where Light was registered...

    New Jersey Republicans say an analysis of state voter rolls has turned up evidence of "widespread fraud, including nearly 5,000 people listed as voting, who were unfortunately, dead. GOP investigators found nearly 55,000 people registered in multiple counties, and nearly 4,400 who voted twice in 2004. What's more, 170,000 New Jersey residents were registered to vote in other states and 6,500 of those appear to have voted twice. Republicans are threatening to sue Democratic Attorney General Peter Harvey to force him to clean up the problems. But Democrats didn't seem too concerned. A spokesman for New Jersey's Democratic Committee tells...

    TRENTON, Sept. 15 - The joke has long been that dead people vote in Hudson County, New Jersey's legendary enclave of machine politics. But now the joke may be on New Jersey, according to a new analysis of voter records by the state's Republican Party. Comparing information from county voter registration lists, Social Security death records and other public information, Republican officials announced on Thursday that 4,755 people who were listed as deceased appear to have voted in the 2004 general election. Another 4,397 people who were registered to vote in more than one county appeared to have voted twice,...

    Voting by dead people isn't always a scam By Jonathan Martin and David Heath Seattle Times staff reporters Days after his wife of four decades died of liver cancer, Robert Holmgren came home to find her absentee ballot. He filled in Charlette Holmgren's intended votes for Dino Rossi and George W. Bush, forged her signature, and mailed her ballot along with his. "I know by the law it wasn't right, but it felt right in my heart," he said. "I wasn't trying to defraud anybody. I was just going with my wife's last wishes." In six of the state's largest...

    At least eight people who died well before the November general election were credited with voting in King County, raising new questions about the integrity of the vote total in the narrow governor's race, a Seattle Post-Intelligencer review has found. The evidence of votes from dead people is the latest example of flaws in an election already rocked by misplaced votes and allegations that there were thousands more votes counted than actual voters. County officials say they are investigating the cases pointed out by the P-I. "These are not indications of fraud," said Bill Huennekens, King County's elections supervisor. "Fraud...

    IT NEVER fails. Probe the deepest, darkest pits of corruption in America and, sooner or later, Hillary Clinton turns up. Thanks to a Big-Media news blackout, most Americans dont know that Congressional elections in South Dakota are melting down fast amid charges of Democrat vote fraud much of it centered on Indian reservations. How does Hillary fit in? Let me explain. Last week, the Senate passed a vote reform bill 92-2. Only two Senators opposed it: Democrats Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton. Among other things, the bill requires voters to show I.D., such as a drivers license. This will...

    Many of you won't be shocked or surprised by this article in today's Seattle Times. In the impending third recount in the Washington state governor's race, Democrats are petitioning the state Supreme Court to compel counties to reexamine some 15,000 previously rejected ballots. In other words, they want county officials to look at and rule again on ballots that each respective canvassing board has already looked at and declared invalid.Presumably, Democrats would be on hand to issue challenge after challenge to these ballots, turning the entire system inside out and upside down to come up with the 43 votes they...
