    One By One, States Are Blocking Pence’s Voter Suppression Scheme State officials from Virginia, California and Kentucky are refusing to give over voter information to Vice President Pence’s commission on election integrity. President Trump signed an executive order last May creating the commission, saying that it will “promote fair and honest federal elections” after claiming that millions of undocumented immigrants had somehow managed to vote illegally for Hillary Clinton. No evidence for this claim has ever been offered. The commission, led by Pence, sent letters today requesting all 50 states to supply voters’ names, birthdays, the last four digits of...

    The Justice Department sued North Carolina Monday in the latest salvo in the Obama administration's ongoing battle against restrictive state voting regulations. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court in the Middle District of North Carolina, seeks to topple provisions of a new statute that reduce early voting access and require North Carolinians to show photo identification before they are allowed to vote. "The state legislature took extremely aggressive steps to curtail the voting rights of African-Americans," Attorney General Eric Holder said during a news conference at the agency's headquarters. In the last election cycle, more than 70 percent...

    BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- United States Attorney General Eric Holder told a packed crowd at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church that the struggle that began here in Birmingham in 1963 continues today, with the Voting Rights Act under siege by those who would roll it back and civil rights denied by a criminal justice system that does more to perpetuate problems than to resolve them. "Today, we affirm that it is our duty - and it will always be the responsibility of every American - to confront injustice wherever it is found, to isolate those who act out of hate, and...

    Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) on Tuesday called on the Justice Department to review her state’s new voter identification law, calling it one of “the most restrictive in the country.” North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) signed into law a bill on Monday that would require voters to show government identification when voting, shorten early-voting days, cut off same-day registration and end a program to preregister teens who would be eligible to vote by Election Day. “I am deeply concerned that H.B. 589 will restrict the ability of minorities, seniors, students, the disabled, and low and middle incomes citizens to exercise...

    Raleigh, N.C. — A day after filing a lawsuit against Gov. Pat McCrory for his decision to sign historic elections changes into law, a team of lawyers and state NAACP President William Barber laid out their legal plan Tuesday to fight what they called "regressive, unconstitutional acts to rig and manipulate elections through voter suppression." The lawsuit alleges that Rosanell Eaton's constitutional right to vote is threatened by House Bill 589, which requires voters to show photo identification when they go to the polls, starting in 2016. **SNIP** Eaton, of Louisburg, claims the new elections law will keep her from...

    North Carolina Gov. Patrick McCrory has signed a sweeping voting reform bill that imposes strict photo identification requirements on the state's 4.5 million voters, rolls back the early voting period and repeals one-stop registration during early voting. Almost immediately following the signing, civil rights groups filed lawsuits in federal court challenging the law.

    The Obama administration embarked on a new strategy on Thursday to challenge voting laws it says discriminate by race, an effort to counter a Supreme Court ruling last month that freed states from the strictest federal oversight. Attorney General Eric Holder vowed to start in Texas, a conservative stronghold. Texas' voter ID law requires voters to show a photo ID before casting a ballot, a measure its supporters, mostly Republicans, said is necessary to prevent fraud. Democrats said it would disproportionately affect the poor and minorities because even getting a free photo ID would require travel to a state office...

    The executive order will direct the commission to produce a report for Obama within six months of its first public meeting, principal deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said. The panel will be tasked with considering "a variety of ways to shorten lines and promote the efficient conduct of elections" and its findings will be "intended to serve as a best practices guide for state and local election officials to improve voters' experience at the polls under their existing election laws."

    The St. Lucie County canvassing board has missed a noon deadline to file election results to the Division of Elections, prompting campaign officials for Patrick Murphy to declare the political newcomer the winner in the race for congressional District 18 race. Under Florida law, the final certified results were due from all of the state’s 67 supervisors of elections today. If the results do not arrive on time, the certified unofficial results submitted last Sunday stand. Those results have Murphy winning by 0.58 percent. A spread of less than 0.5 percent would have triggered an automatic recount. “Today at noon,...
  • Philly GOP: Poll inspectors being ousted for Dems

    Court-appointed Republican poll inspectors are being forcibly removed from voting stations in some Philadelphia wards and replaced in some cases by Democratic inspectors and even members of the Black Panthers, according to GOP officials. Secrets just received this memo from GOP officials: The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards. These Inspectors are election officials - again, court appointed -- and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats) and being replaced by Democrats.

    Does voter fraud actually exist? If you ask members of the Obama administration, Democratic lawmakers or the left-leaning media, they often argue it's a myth concocted by Republicans to suppress Democratic turnout. Even U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has called voter fraud "a problem that does not really exist." But what you won't see in most of the nation's headlines is the series of explosive investigations by patriot James O'Keefe and his nonprofit, Project Veritas. In stunning video footage (called "DNC Staffer Assists Double Voting In Support of Obama" on YouTube), a top Obama campaign worker gleefully helps an undercover...

    Democratic lawmakers and activists nationwide are angry about a crop of billboard signs posted in early October in the Cleveland and Milwaukee areas that warn of stiff penalties for voter fraud. The roughly 33 signs warn that "Voter Fraud is a Felony" punishable by up to 3-1/2 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, wording flanked by a large picture of a judge's gavel. The signs will be up through the November 6 election day in the Cleveland and Milwaukee areas and were paid for by an anonymous "Family Foundation," according to a spokesman for Clear Channel Outdoor, which owns...

    Videographer James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas caught an official for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign helping who she thought was an Obama supporter set herself up to vote more than once in November. Stephanie Caballero is the regional field director for Obama’s Organizing For America in Houston, Texas. Federal Election Commission documents show, according to Project Veritas, that Caballero is a “salaried employee of the DNC [Democratic National Committee].” Caballero is caught on camera helping the young woman try to vote in Florida and Texas in the upcoming election.
  • Could gun owners lose election over jobs report?

    Days after American Spectator Senior Editor John Fund warned gun owners about the dangers that voter fraud pose for the Second Amendment this year, September’s job report shows a surprising – and some suggest curious – drop below eight percent for the first time since Barack Obama took office. What’s that got to do with gun rights? Plenty, if one is worried about a second Obama term and what it could mean for future Second Amendment court battles, and the proposed United Nations Small Arms Trade Treaty. While it is good news for those who now have jobs, several people...

The goal of “For the People” is to provide information on what documents and procedures are needed to vote so that no eligible voter is turned away from...

    A Maryland Democratic candidate quit her congressional race Monday after her own party told state officials that she had committed fraud by voting in both Maryland and Florida in recent elections. Wendy Rosen, a small-business owner running against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District, released a statement saying that “with great regret, and much sorrow” she was resigning from the contest. “Personal issues have made this the hardest decision that I have had to make,” Rosen said Rosen’s announcement came the same day the state Democratic party released a letter to state Attorney General...

    Wendy Rosen, the Democratic challenger to Republican Rep. Andy Harris in the 1st Congressional District, withdrew from the race Monday amid allegations that she voted in elections in both Maryland and Florida in 2006 and 2008. It was unclear, however, whether she could remove her name from the ballot with the election less than two months away. Under state law, a candidate has until 70 days before an election to remove his or her name from the ballot. The deadline for the Nov. 6 election passed on Aug. 28. Snip Republicans, meanwhile, said the allegations prove that voter fraud is...
