  • Computer model predicts bad news for Obama in Broward, Palm Beach counties

    South Florida Sun Sentinel ^ | October 21, 2012 | Anthony Man
    Computer modeling of economic and political factors by the research firm Moody's Analytics predicts President Barack Obama will perform so badly in the Democratic strongholds of Broward and Palm Beach counties that he'll lose the state's 29 electoral votes on Nov. 6. Democrats and Republicans agree Obama must run up big margins in the three big South Florida counties if he has any hope of offsetting Republican territory elsewhere and winning statewide. That won't happen, according to the Moody's Analytics forecast, which projects Obama winning 56.3 percent of the vote in Broward, 50.8 percent in Palm Beach County and 58.7...

    You're not the only one: perhaps some funny business going on with absentee ballots this cycle, even intentional foot-dragging... I know personally of instances where the regular ballot request was sent in 8 months ago... and still nothing, here on the dawn of the most important election in US history. But you certainly don't have to stand there and have your right to vote taken by those complicit with this vile regime... DO NOT let Obama steal this thing! Here's what patriots can do to vote NOW (for those of you who haven't received an overseas absentee ballot yet): go to the...

    This is something I've been wondering for some time and am now putting it forward to FReepers in hopes of educating me and others. If we, as conservatives, believe in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, the Constitution, and all that was written down by the Founding Fathers (our founding principles), how come we are not members of the Constitution party? Why is the Republican Party better than choosing the Constitution Party?

    For several weeks, indeed months, President Obama's numbers in West Virginia polls have shown that this is one state that is not expected to reward Obama/Biden with our five electoral votes this year. This administration's double hit to West Virginia's economy--in the form of the war on coal and coal-fired power plants and Obamacare's sapping of our small businesses--make another term less than appetizing for most West Virginians, regardless of political party. But since we've known this dynamic in our electorate for some time, how might those voters who really want to make a statement do that in early voting...

    As the presidential race tightens and the fierce rivals try to win every vote they can, experts say flawed safeguards could allow people who live in two states to vote twice for their favorite candidate. Those same double-voters could cast ballots in congressional races in two different states, possibly affecting this year's pivotal election when both political parties are vying for control of the U.S. Senate and House. Double voting is especially a concern in Florida, where a myriad part-time residents, known as snowbirds, have a second home in a different state, giving them the chance to register to vote...

After all he was the man said who said we were all Americans no matter whether we came from blue or red states. People were inspired by his words and believed he would reduce the debt, save the economy, end the wars, and change the way business was conducted in Washington. They chanted “yes we can” and embarked on a quest to get the man who would be America’s...

    The city of Detroit plans to remove a citizenship question from ballot applications. Under state law anyone requesting a ballot is required to check a box on a form answering the question of whether he is a citizen. Detroit Elections Director Daniel Baxter says he doesn’t see the utility of the requirement. “It doesn’t really verify eligibility,” Baxter pointed out. “An ineligible person could simply lie and say he is a citizen.” Secretary of State Ruth Johnson acknowledged that the check-box can’t verify eligibility, but argued that it still serves a useful purpose. “First, it informs the would-be voter that...

    To paraphrase 15th Century Dutch Philosopher Erasmus’ well-known characterization of women -- "technology, can't live with it, can't live without it." Ever since the debacle that was the vote counting in Florida a dozen years ago, virtually every jurisdiction in the country has moved away from some form of manual voting machine to embrace the technology of electronic voting ("e-voting" for short). Yet, as states and local elections offices have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to institute e-voting, little attention has been paid the potential dangers inherent in this form of vote counting. Indeed, even as many Republican voters...

    Since the Republican Legislature passed laws last year to regulate groups that independently register voters in Florida, Democrats have swamped Republicans in registering new voters. State elections data show that, through Sept. 24, the Florida Democratic Party had registered more than 230,741 new voters since the laws went into effect July 1, 2011. Republicans had turned in just 46,373 new voter registrations during that time. Still, both parties are bucking a strong tide against them. In the past four years, the number of voters registered "No Party Affiliation" — the principal category for unaligned voters — has increased by 282,000....

    HARRISBURG — A Commonwealth Court judge on Tuesday kept most of the voter ID law intact, ruling the state can ask for photo ID in the Nov. 6 election but people without it still can vote. The November election will be similar to the “soft rollout” used in the April primary when voter ID was optional. Judge Robert Simpson also blocked language that would have discounted provisional ballots for voters without ID who could not verify their identity within six days. Opponents of the law asked to block it entirely over concerns it would disenfranchise voters. Simpson granted a preliminary...

In Minnesota, voters in November will be deciding whether to move from having no voter ID requirement to adopting one of the strictest in the nation.

Thirty-three states have passed voter ID laws, and at least 30 will be in place for November's...

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...

    I believe freedom is worth fighting for. I am committed to protecting the freedoms our forefathers guaranteed to us in our Constitution. There are many politicians who disagree with me, although they are loath to admit it, but their true colors show in voting records on critical legislation. And part of what makes America great is that every two years, we, too, cast our votes, rendering judgment on whether lawmakers have fulfilled their promises. And every four years, as in 2012, our opportunity extends to the highest office in the land. Less than 60 days remains before Election Day. I...

    A Mississippi NAACP executive is in jail after being convicted of voter fraud for fraudulently casting absentee ballots, including for four dead people. Lessadolla Sowers, who is a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee, was convicted and sentenced in April for what a judge said were crimes that cut “against the fabric of our free society.” She was given a five-year sentence for each of the ten counts of voter fraud for which she was convicted, but the sentencing judge allowed her to serve the terms concurrently, according to the Tunica Times.

    Military: The administration thanks the troops for their service by failing to comply with a law requiring that it help soldiers deployed overseas cast ballots in their home states. The administration has taken various states to court to block voter ID laws on the grounds it will disenfranchise voters. But it has no qualms about the disenfranchisement of military voters overseas through its failure to comply with and enforce the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act, passed by Congress in 2009 and signed into law by President Barack Obama. The law acknowledges the difficulties caused by time and distance...

    When residents go to the polls in November, they will need a valid photo ID, according to a law passed during the 2012 legislative session. The usual practice has required that registered voters confirm their name and age with the supervisor of the checklist prior to voting. Now, they will have to provide photo identification. According to a posting on the Secretary of State’s website, voters can show nearly any form of identification. Among the list of acceptable IDs are driver’s licenses, ID cards issued by the Division of Motor Vehicles, Armed Services ID cards, passports, or student IDs. Until...
