    Jersey voters, take note. There's a big change in the state's voting laws that you'll need to pay attention to under a measure signed by Gov. Phil Murphy designed to expand voter participation. Critics say the new law is sparking voter confusion. And county clerks say it's forced them to scramble to comb voting rolls to meet its requirements on short notice. The big change is about mail-in ballots. You have always had the option of mailing in your ballot. You could get a ballot if you applied for one by the deadline, then mailed it in or dropped it...
  • Let's Say Bob Woodward Is Right, How Then Should We Vote?

    If Bob Woodward’s Trump-bashing, mega-bestseller is true, how should conservatives vote in the midterms? If the White House is in chaos, led by an unqualified and out of control president, what course should we take on November 6? Woodward speaks of “a nervous breakdown of the executive power of the most powerful country in the world.” And he describes Trump as “an emotionally overwrought, mercurial and unpredictable leader.” The infamous, anonymous op-ed piece in the New York Times spoke of Trump’s leadership style, “impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective” and claimed he was “amoral.” Yes, we are told, “Meetings with him...

    SANTA FE — The New Mexico Supreme Court today blocked Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver from bringing back straight party voting for the November general election, ruling the secretary of state does not have the authority to unilaterally make the policy change. The unanimous decision, which was handed down after more than an hour of deliberations, makes it clear that only the Legislature can reinstate straight party voting, which allows voters to vote for a major party’s entire slate of candidates by filling in an oval at the top of the ballot. “This power is theirs alone, and the...

    The Political Insider ^ | September 5, 2018 | Matt
    In today’s political landscape, it seems like anything even remotely conservative is branded “far-right” by the left, while left-wing views are treated as if they’re the default. The media is advertising a supposedly “non-partisan” organization that Michelle Obama is backing ahead of the midterms, but the organization is not only partisan, it’s explicitly partisan in one direction. The group is called “When We All Vote” and aims to register as many people as possible to vote before the midterms. The group has an $8 million budget, which will be raised through corporate sponsorships and foundation grants. In other words, by...

    Boston City Councilor, Ayanna Pressley, bulldozed over longtime Representative Michael Capuano in the 7th District with 58.6 percent of the vote. Capuano barely even made it with his hometown of Somerville, which had gotten him to Congress two decades earlier. There is a shift in voting taking place right now, and the Pressley campaign represents a whole new playing field. Pressley says, “If you’re serious about running a grassroots campaign, you don’t just pick and choose where you think you can run a strong race.” Her senior campaign advisor Alex Goldstein said, “One of the central values to a grassroots...

    Tens of thousands of Californians have been registered to vote incorrectly by the state Department of Motor Vehicles, including some who were assigned the wrong political party preference, officials said Wednesday. Officials insist the errors were limited to 23,000 of the 1.4 million voter registration files sent to elections offices between late April, when California’s new automated “motor voter” system went into effect, and early August. Californians who were affected will soon receive notifications in the mail instructing them to check their voter registration status. Jean Shiomoto, the state’s DMV director, and Amy Tong, director of the California Department of...

Every military unit would have a voting officer that could register everyone in one week-military efficiency. Wait for a judge to throw it out-too late. Heh heh. (re)Register in the home base. Lot of purple ones out there with bases.

    In a bid to energize Democratic voters for the upcoming congressional elections, former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton touted the economic benefits of abortion. "Since 1973's Roe v. Wade decision, the legal termination of more than 50 million useless eaters has saved the US economy more than $3.5 trillion," she told the pro-abortion crowd. "By relieving 50 million women from the drudgery of child rearing the ruling enabled them to employ their talents more productively by taking jobs and earning a higher income." "All these benefits are in danger if Democrats can't take control of Congress to block pro-life legislation and...

    Rep. Grace Meng is sponsoring a resolution that would extend the right to vote to U.S. citizens 16 years of age or older. The New York Democrat’s resolution, introduced earlier this month, would repeal the 26th Amendment of the Constitution, which currently states the right to vote for citizens who are 18 years of age or older "shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State." If the resolution is passed, the amendment would instead say the right to vote for citizens who are 16 years of age or older "shall not be denied or...
