    WASHINGTON — The nation’s voter registration rolls are in disarray, according to a report released Tuesday by the Pew Center on the States. The problems have the potential to affect the outcomes of local, state and federal elections. Decentralized and paper-based voter registration is prone to error, according to a new report. One in eight active registrations is invalid or inaccurate. At the same time, one in four people who are eligible to vote — at least 51 million potential voters — are not registered. The report found that there are about 1.8 million dead people listed as active voters....

    ROANOKE, VA -- The Virginia Attorney General's office is investigating the campaign of Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich, over claims of ballot signature fraud. At the end of December, Gingrich told CNN that the reason he did not qualify for the Virginia primary, is because one of the people his campaign hired falsified a lot of signatures. The attorney general's office tells WSLS that the State Board of Elections asked it to investigate the claim. A spokesman for the attorney general's office emphasized that the investigation is not looking into Gingrich himself.

    Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department, a recent book by J. Christian Adams, provides shocking evidence of DOJ racial bias toward minorities and the failure to apply federal law in a race-neutral fashion. A five-year DOJ Voting Rights Section veteran, Adams cites his firsthand experience with officials who sought to promote a radical racialist agenda and who knowingly violated the National Voting Rights Act (NVRA). Adams sounds an alarm, arguing that the values and actions pursued by the DOJ jeopardize our constitutional republic and endanger America's core principles of government of the people, by the people,...

    Dear xxxxxx, At a time when we need to be focusing on creating jobs and growing the economy, partisan extremists in Richmond have a very different agenda: right now they’re ramming through a series of bills that are deliberately designed to disenfranchise Virginia voters. If passed, these measures will make it much harder for many minorities, seniors, low-income populations, and disabled Virginians to cast their ballots.

    Dear Friends -- There's something happening in Richmond that I think you should know about. Right now, Republican legislators are going out of their way to make it harder for Virginians across this Commonwealth to vote. Republicans are pushing legislation to prevent thousands of Virginians who do not have government-sponsored identification from casting a regular ballot on election day. They want to make people who register to vote wait five days before casting an absentee ballot. They are also trying to make it illegal to help more than two people with an absentee ballot application in the same election year....

There is no voter fraud problem in New Hampshire,” said Governor Lynch in a statement last summer. “We already have strong election laws that are effective in regulating our elections.” Not surprisingly, the governor was outraged last week when a watchdog group, Project Veritas, organized an undercover sting operation to test the veracity of his reassurances.

The remarks followed a December move by Holder's agents at the Department of Justice to block “South Carolina's new voter ID law from taking effect, claiming that the measure will put an unfair burden on minority voters,” according to an earlier Politico piece. Naturally, the move is endorsed by Ben Jealous and the NAAPoC (I mean really, “CP” in this day and age?)...

The errors ranged from not checking the block to indicate the voter was a "New Voter" or something more egregious like failing to certify that the person was a "qualified elector" or with forms missing signatures and "proof of residency" information. On some forms, there was no indication that poll workers verified anything about the person registering to...

    There is a solution to the problem of voter fraud, an act which compromises the sacred principle of one man one vote. Liberals have accused several GOP governors of attempting to suppress Democratic votes by instituting policies that require proper voter identification.

Liberals answer this serious charge by claiming that there is no significant voter fraud but...

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. claims Jim Crow is returning. In a recent speech, Mr. Holder said that attempts by states to pass voter identification laws will disenfranchise minorities, rolling back the clock to the evil days of segregation. He said that a growing number of minorities fear that “the same disparities, divisions and problems” now afflict America as they did in 1965 prior to the Voting Rights Act. According to the Obama administration, our democracy is being threatened by racist Republicans. Hence, the Justice Department must prevent laws requiring a photo ID to vote from being enacted. Mr....

    In an outrageous recent fundraising letter the Democratic National Committee solicited funds from the party faithful on the grounds that the DNC was the last remaining bulwark against a series of anti-election-fraud initiatives "in more than 40 states." That's right, the DNC appears to be standing up for potential fraud - presumably because ending it would disenfranchise at least two of its core constituencies: the deceased and double-voters. Across America, Republican and Democratic legislatures have put forth voter identification laws this year to protect the constitutional values of equal protection and one person one vote, and for good reason.

That's a fair inference after the Attorney General last Friday blocked South Carolina's voter ID law on grounds that it would hurt minorities. What a political abuse of law. In a letter to South Carolina's government, Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Thomas Perez called the state law—which would require voters to present one of five forms of photo ID at the polls—a violation of Section 5 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

But what has not been reported is that in the only other presidential primaries in which Virginia required 10,000 signatures (2000, 2004, and 2008) the signatures were NOT checked.Any candidate who submitted at...

    It's the most ridiculous and uncontroversial issue in the world, but leave it to a liberal/Democrat to make it serious and controversial. According to them, demanding an official picture I.D. to vote "disenfranchises" poor people. And we all know, they tell us, that most poor people are minorities? How? No freaking idea.But this, apparently, is why most Republicans -- nay, most Americans -- believe that voter I.D. is just plain common sense.Because it is.Think of all the things you have to do in your lives that require an official photo I.D.: from driving a car to boarding an airplane to renting...

    ~~snip~~ "A Gingrich campaign official prior to the move by the Republican Party of Virginia said the problem is how the rules are set up, arguing that the party is, for apparently the first time, cross-checking the addresses that signature-givers gave against the electronic voter database file for accuracies. A name without a proper address match was tossed, the official said."

    Nationa Review The Corner ^ | 12-22-11 | Hans A. von Spakovsky
    The latest voter-fraud convictions in Troy, N.Y., must be very inconvenient to the public-affairs propagandists over at the DNC and the NAACP, as well as liberal media outlets like the New York Times. It just ruins their constant refrain that there is no voter fraud in the United States. Eric Shawn at FOX News reports that two Troy city officials, the city clerk and a councilman, along with two Democratic political operatives, have pled guilty to forging absentee-ballot signatures and casting fraudulent ballots in the 2009 Working Families Party primary. The WFP is the political party associated with ACORN. One...

    FReepers, Need your Help: Very shortly I'm going to be releasing my county by county analysis of the Iowa Caucus, projecting based on polling data and previous history the most likely outcome, along with an analysis of what % of each county vote the eventual GOP nominee will need to capture to have a shot at winning Iowa. I don't know a whole lot of IA history, so I've been surprised to see so many voter totals going down in response to people leaving. Most of the counties I've analyzed so far have had a 1-8% decrease in voter turnout...

    Is it racist to require people to show a photo ID when they vote? You need a photo ID for nearly any meaningful transaction, such as cashing checks, including government checks. If this simple requirement “suppresses” the vote, maybe we need to ask why it’s such a great idea to push for universal suffrage for every adult who is merely breathing. Of course, even this latter requirement would suppress the vote in Chicago and New Orleans, where dead people get to vote all the time – and do so cheerfully! In a speech Tuesday at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library...
  • Obama asks Democrat supporters to provide email addresses of Republican friends

    Barack Obama’s re-election forces have just made a request of their lunatic fan base, asking members to pass on the email addresses of Republican friends, family and acquaintances to the campaign. According to “Obama for America” Deputy Campaign Manager Julianna Smoot, the purpose of this reputedly innocent adventure is to “…have a little fun at the expense of a Republican in your life by letting them know they inspired you to make a campaign donation to the Obama campaign.” (1) Of course, suspicious and mistrusting conservatives needn’t worry, for after being emailed with the campaign’s thanks for having “inspired” the...
  • Editorial: Eric Holder and defending the vote (Barf Alert!)

    The ballot box is the one place where people pass judgment, in a meaningful way, on those who govern and those who aspire to govern. Pull the lever and citizenship — and all that the word implies — is reduced to an elemental exercise in accountability. The power of the vote is in the aggregate numbers, and in that sense each one matters greatly... States have cut back on early voting and restricted voter registration drives. In Florida, the League of Women Voters was forced to suspend its voter registration efforts after 72 years because a new law greatly impedes...

    Like most people, recently I’ve been asked to present photo identification on a number of occasions without regard to my race, religion, or national origin. The majority of the requests I’ve received have come in circumstances many would consider more or less routine: checking in for a flight and passing through airport security; registering as a guest at a hotel; using a credit card when purchasing something more expensive than a meal or tank of gas; and buying over-the-counter medications. In addition, I was required to show photo identification while visiting the Department of Justice here in Washington. In the...

    Scott Rasmussen finds that an overwhelming 75% support photo ID requirements. The Democrats also hope to stir up their base by attacking state efforts to curb illegal immigration. Here, too, they are paddling the canoe uphill, as likely voters say, by a 52%/34% margin that they would like their state to enact an immigration law like Arizona’s. Gallup finds that growing and expanding the economy is given high priority by 82% of Americans and increasing equality of opportunity for people to get ahead if they want to is considered very important by 70%, while only 46% attribute high priority to...

    Illegal aliens now quite possibly can call a toll free government number, 1-800-259-0957, to get a free “Obama Phone,” called Safe Link Wireless, if they are on food stamps or Medicaid. By applying for work permits that give them drivers’ licenses, that now provides proof of identity, they enter America’s Entitlement class and even become entitled to vote in our elections, for Democrats, of course. What, you say? (1) The Obama administration has set up a cascading series events, beginning back in August when deportation of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants was suspended, pending reviews. “A review of about...
