    There are obviously verifiable vote fraud problems in North Carolina. In 2010 those problems surfaced meaningfully as indicated in the below voter fraud post from an earlier Charlotte Conservative Examiner article: Perhaps in an effort to promote North Carolina as one of the healthiest States in the Nation, this latest voter twist comes to us from Susan Myrick of the Civitas Institute in North Carolina--not to be confused with Rep. Sue Myrick of NC who is unrelated. In a radio interview with local WBT Anchor Tara Servatious, Susan reports that she has been keeping track of the number of votes...

    Not too long ago, going Democrat blue was the thing to do. But now, local voter registration offices are seeing red. So how will a GOP surge play into an election year that's packed with big races? In 2008, we saw a big Democrat comeback in Congress. But then, in the last general election, we saw what could be the beginning of a Republican rebound. Both Lehigh and Northampton counties are reporting a trend of voters who have switched parties and are now Republicans.

    Veteran Washington Post reporter Daryl Fears, part of a two-person writer team, unmistakably wrote that filmmaker John O'Keefe had “said” he “targeted” ACORN, the advocacy group, for his candid-camera expose, because it registered voters to defeat Republicans. O'Keefe said no such thing. It was a non-quote made out of whole cloth by reporter Fears, and published as fact on Sept. 17. Making the falsehood exponentially worse, the Post story then was retailed worldwide by the Associated Press.

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | September 16, 2009 | Brody Mullins and Jake Sherman
    Community-organizing group Acorn said Thursday it was considering quitting its voter-registration work amid a growing political storm over its activities, a move that could hurt Democrats at the polls. In the latest rebuke, the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly Thursday to block the group from receiving federal funds. Republicans attached the measure attacking Acorn to an unrelated bill that advances a top Democratic priority: making the federal government the sole provider of college loans, forcing private lenders out of the origination market. The Acorn measure passed with strong bipartisan support, 345-75, while the student-loan bill passed by 253-171, largely along...

    Jimmy Carter was the last Democratic presidential candidate to win over Chesapeake voters. That was 1976. So it surprised a few people when Barack Obama edged by Republican John McCain in Chesapeake last week by 1,369 votes. Chesapeake has been a conservative stronghold for three decades. But on Nov. 4, this traditionally Republican city turned blue - and local Democrats say the Obama victory here was no stroke of luck. With the help of paid Obama staffers who swooped in to Chesapeake in the months leading up to the election, Democrats say, they made an organized effort to increase the...

    On Oct. 6, the community organizing group Acorn and an affiliated charity called Project Vote announced with jubilation that they had registered 1.3 million new voters. But it turns out the claim was a wild exaggeration, and the real number of newly registered voters nationwide is closer to 450,000, Project Vote’s executive director, Michael Slater, said in an interview. The remainder are registered voters who were changing their address and roughly 400,000 that were rejected by election officials for a variety of reasons, including duplicate registrations, incomplete forms and fraudulent submissions from low-paid field workers trying to please their supervisors,...

    The Detroit News is a Gannett publication so we can't post excerpts -- only this LINK. However, the gist of the story is that according to the Michigan Secretary of state, voter registration is way up despite decreasing population -- to 98 percent of the state's voting age population. The increase comes from strong RAT areas such as college towns and Detroit. The Rat Secretary of State is pleased people are so excited about the election.
  • Gallup-No Increase in Proportion of First-Time Voters

    PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup finds 13% of registered voters saying they will vote for president for the first time in 2008. That matches the figure Gallup found in its final 2004 pre-election poll. The current data are based on interviews with more than 2,700 registered voters as part of Oct. 17-19 Gallup Poll Daily tracking. Gallup asked these voters a question it had asked in its 2004 election polling: whether this would be the first time they had voted in a presidential election, or whether they had voted for president before. Despite much discussion of the possibility of large numbers...

    According to statistics released by the Buncombe County Board of Elections, 14,415 new voters have registered since early February. The vast majority (98 percent) of the new voters are registered as Democrats (7,355) or unaffiliated (6,765). The number of registered Republicans stayed roughly the same, going up by 186 new voters. The numbers, released by the Board of Elections this afternoon, show a total of 173,823 voters registered in Buncombe County. As of early February, there were 159,408 registered voters. The increase — approximately 9 percent — is considerable. In February, there were 69,956 registered Democrats, 49,023 registered Republicans and...

    A word of advice: if a Luchador asks you to register to vote, register to vote. Experts predict a 23 percent surge in Latino voters this Presidential election compared to 2004. And that surge is attributed to grassroots groups who are pounding the pavement and the Internet. A San Jose grassroots advocacy group called Somo Mayfair is using the Luchador, an icon of Latino culture, in YouTube clips to get people out to vote. "We wanna keep on pushing forward the power of the Latino vote," said Jaime Alvarado, of Somo Mayfair. "So the number of people who register turn...

Here’s the stench: An entire houseful of young, non-Ohioan Democrat activists have used the Brownlee Avenue address to register themselves to vote in the Buckeye State and secure absentee ballots under extremely shady circumstances — all while mobilizing a large effort to register thousands of others for absentee and early voting. The activists are leaders of a group called “Vote From Home ‘08.” The group...

    Some longtime Republican strongholds in New York are becoming increasingly Democratic, a striking change driven by demographic shifts, intense voter registration drives by Democrats and allied groups and sagging Republican fortunes at the tail end of George W. Bush's presidency. New York State as a whole has grown steadily more Democratic in recent years, a trend that is unlikely to abate anytime soon. According to the State Board of Elections, registered Democrats now outnumber Republicans by 5.5 million to 3.2 million, with unaffiliated voters at 2.4 million.

A whirlwind month of voter registration was capped Monday with 407 new registrations, Elections Director Fran Green told county election commissioners Tuesday. In the August general election the county had about 54,000 registered voters. As of Tuesday, that number was 59,891. Ms. Green held up a tray of registrations and estimated about 500 were left to process. “That will put us over 60,000, “ she said.

If they show up. In states where registration is recorded by party, including eight key states that could decide the election, voters have signed up Democratic in the past six months by a margin of nearly 4-to-1. Tonya Barker is among them. The 30-year-old mother of two from eastern North Carolina said it...

Though officially non-partisan, the focus of the ACORN/Project Vote voter drive was on groups leaning Democratic in the presidential contest: African American, young, Latino and low income earners. They are called "historically underrepresented in elections" in a press release issued by the group on Monday. Republicans would call these target groups Democrats.

    Spurred by heavy registration in big urban counties -- particularly among young voters and black people -- North Carolina's voter rolls have swelled by more than 600,000 this year to a record 6 million. "Voter registration has eclipsed all records, no doubt about it," said state elections director Gary Bartlett. The apparent beneficiaries: Democrats. Analysts say the changes have helped Democrat Barack Obama make the state an unexpected presidential battleground. "Clearly, the advantage goes to Obama," said Ferrel Guillory, director of the Program on Public Life at UNC-Chapel Hill. Democrats have an overall edge in registration in this state: 2.7...

    The Hill ^ | s | Klaus Marre and Michael O’Brien
    Barack Obama's campaign website is recommending that voters remain registered in battleground states even though they may not be living there on Nov. 4. The Republican National Committee (RNC) is raising questions about how Sen. Obama’s (Ill.) campaign is urging its supporters to vote in purple states despite living in red or blue states this fall. An RNC official said it is unclear whether that practice is illegal but argued that it is “out of compliance with the spirit of the law.” However, Columbia University law professor and election law expert Nathaniel Persily stated that “there is no problem” with...

    Palast Report ^ | 9/7/08 | Plast
    In swing-state Colorado, the Republican Secretary of State conducted the biggest purge of voters in history, dumping a fifth of all registrations. Guess their color. In swing-state Florida, the state is refusing to accept about 85,000 new registrations from voter drives – overwhelming Black voters. In swing state New Mexico, HALF of the Democrats of Mora, a dirt poor and overwhelmingly Hispanic county, found their registrations disappeared this year, courtesy of a Republican voting contractor. In swing states Ohio and Nevada, new federal law is knocking out tens of thousands of voters who lost their homes to foreclosure. My investigations...

    CLAIRTON, Pa. - Five days a week, Linda Graham trolls tattered neighborhoods of this once thriving steel city outside Pittsburgh for unregistered voters she can sign up as Democrats — one of thousands of unknown volunteers whose work outside the limelight has already altered the basic arithmetic of the November election. The epic nomination battle between Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton helped put millions more Democrats on the voter rolls while Republican registration declined. Now Graham, 45, has taken three months of unpaid leave from her job at Pittsburgh's Central Blood Bank in the hope of adding to those...

    One of the leading organizations working to overthrow Marxism and restore Liberty in America, FreeRepublic.com, announces a drive to register 1,000,000 new Republican voters to defeat Barack Hussein Obomber and Joe Imbiden. Heck, if Moveon.org can register 500,000 budding young socialist abortionists to support their Marxist messiah, I don't see why FreeRepublic.com shouldn't register at least twice as many young God-fearing, pro-life, Liberty-loving American patriots to defeat their godless leftist takeover attempt.

    Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign in Georgia spent the weekend training more than 2,500 volunteers for a statewide push to register voters and boost Election Day turnout, a massive grass-roots mobilization that is part of the campaign's national strategy to drive up the mostly Democratic black vote and capture longtime Republican strongholds. Mr. Obama has vowed to increase black voter participation by 30 percent, which likely would redraw the electoral map by reclaiming once-Democratic Southern states - including Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina and Virginia - that turned Republican in 1964.
