Skip to comments.Conservative watchdog group questions counties with too many voters
Posted on 04/10/2012 9:14:25 AM PDT by tje
Sixteen small counties across Texas appear to have more registered voters on their rolls as of 2010 than qualified citizens of voting age - a phenomenon prompting conservative Washington, D.C., watchdog group to question whether the "overcounts" could raise the potential for election fraud.
The Chronicle reviewed public records for all Texas counties and found evidence of surplus registered voters in rural Texas counties scattered statewide, including East Texas counties like Chambers, Trinity, and Polk, as well as border counties like Presidio in Big Bend country and Maverick County surrounding the border at Eagle Pass.

Would these be border counties?
3 of the 16 counties in question are border counties. The title of the article is very poor. I think it was chosen in the hopes that very few would understand what the problem really is. There are more people registered to vote than the number of eligible voters in the counties in question.
The East Texas counties are not on the border.
We have this going on up here in Minnesota as well. That’s how we ended up with Franken and Dayton both.
I’m sure Holder believes this is all manufactured or ‘new math’...
Arent’ one or more of those on the border with the United States? (wink).
All are heavily Holders people,,, or on the border.
By the way, this past election was the first time that they used 'voting machines'. Do you think that there might be a connection to the outcome?
Via Google, "liberal watchdog group" only appeared in 37 articles, less than 10% of the time "conservative watchdog group" appeared.
They're pandering to the Democrat activists' narrative that conservatives only care about voting and voter fraud because of racism.
Maybe they meant the border with Louisiana. ;)
How do people that move away get removed from the voter rolls?
anyone find it suspicious that Holder wants to mess with Texas and South Carolina? no need for ID to vote in those states. And Obama has no problem with the Mexican invasion of Arizona? Hmm? maybe Obama needs to steal those states from McCain(2008 states} being Obama is gonna lose 5 to 7 states he won in 2008?
People are supposed to vote where they live (unless they are a member of Congress).
Theoretically, someone who doesn’t vote is purged from the rolls after a prescribed amount of time. In reality, I’m not sure this happens, particularly in the more rural counties that may not have the computer capability of the metropolitan areas.
That’s probably all that’s happening here, rolls that are not purged when people move or die.
I would think otherwise were these inner-city and urban areas, but these are mostly rural and mostly conservative or blue-dog Dems.
They vote the living and dead who don't show up to vote. Any other kind of fraud is 'small potatoes' and can be used to draw attention away from the real cheating. The 'dead' and 'illegal' vote is a byproduct of the cheating - but the dead and illegals don't account for the majority of the votes stolen - that comes from voting folks on the roles who didn't show up for the election.
Cheating is usually done in black districts ...it's also why moter/voter is important to dems. They need names to 'work with'. A way to spot where cheating is happening is watch districts that are traditionally slow getting their vote in. They're slow because they need to know how many votes they need to add to get a ‘close’ win. Too large a win would cause suspicion in 'close' races.
James O’Keefe needs to set up cameras in these spots and ‘catch’ the fact that 100 vote in a precinct that shows 3,000 people voting. It's sad O'Keefe is the only real investigative journalist in the country. We need a few more. ...
