  • The Latest: Lamb confident absentee ballots will go his way

    03/15/2018 5:11:55 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 37 replies
    Democrat Conor Lamb, who has a razor-thin lead over Republican Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania’s special congressional election, says he’s confident he’ll be the ultimate winner. With some absentee ballots still being counted, Lamb told CNN Wednesday his campaign had made a push to help voters get absentee ballots. Lamb told CNN he has not yet heard from Saccone, but added, “I congratulate him on fighting hard the whole way.” Asked about his strong showing in a Republican district that Donald Trump carried by 20 points in 2016, Lamb said, “This is my home. You call it a red district, I...
  • Separate But Equal Elections Adopted by Democrats in Maryland

    As a female and a Republican – yes, shock and awe, there are women Republicans in Montgomery County – I cannot stop laughing at the recent decision by the Maryland Democrat Party to adopt separate but equal elections for their central committee members. Half of their central committee members must be female and the other half male, but that is not new. What is new is that during this year’s June 26 primary for 17 counties, each voter will HAVE to Vote for one or more MALES on the Male ballot and one or more FEMALES on the Female part...

    WASHINGTON — Hoping to counter waves of Russian Twitter bots, fake social media accounts, and hacking attacks aimed at undermining American democracy, state election officials around the country are seizing on an old-school strategy: paper ballots. In Virginia, election officials have gone back to a paper ballot system, as a way to prevent any foreign interference. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolfe this month ordered county officials to ensure new election equipment produces a paper record. Georgia lawmakers are considering legislation to replace a touch-screen voting system with paper. Top election officials around the country are growing increasingly alarmed about this fall’s...
  • Paper Ballots Are Being Destroyed in Alabama

    A valid recount in Alabama is impossible because the paper ballots (evidence) is being destroyed as we speak. The Alabama Supreme Court stayed a lower court’s order to election officials that would have required the preservation of voting records in Tuesday’s Senate special election. A circuit judge on Monday ordered election officials to set voting machines to save all digital ballot images, which would preserve voting records in the event of a recount. Alabama’s AL.com said Tuesday morning that the state’s Supreme Court had blocked the order. A group of four Alabama voters filed a lawsuit last Thursday arguing that...
  • The Communist Party are On the Ballots Once Again in the UK: The Hammer and Sickle Flying Proudly

    When voters in Birmingham received their ballots through the door for the upcoming “Metro” Mayoral Elections taking place on next month, many were surprised to see the “Hammer and Sickle” logo and a Communist party candidate. Apparently the deaths of 150,000,000 odd people has not been quite enough to shame activists into silence. And what may be even more surprising, is that the “Communist Party of Great Britain” never actually went away. It has been operating openly and working on the sidelines of British politics for almost 100 years. On May 4th, Graham John Stevenson will stand on the boxes...

    Imagine that California had remained a competitive state in elections — and imagine the crisis we would have had for the past two weeks as a result. YouGov’s Will Jordan noted last night that the state has 2.8 million ballots still left to count nearly a fortnight after the election: Per California Secretary of State, currently more unprocessed ballots there (2.8 million) than the TOTAL cast for President in 35 states.— Will Jordan (@williamjordann) November 21, 2016 The Washington Post’s Philip Bump picked up on the news this afternoon: Unsurprisingly, California is already recording more votes cast than any...

    Formal protests are now being filed in 11 additional counties to challenge potentially fraudulent absentee ballots cast for Roy Cooper and other Democrats, according to Governor Pat McCrory's campaign.A formal protest was filed with the Bladen County Board of Elections to challenge several hundred absentee ballots, alleged to be fraudulent on Tuesday. The initial evidence laid out in the protest suggests a "massive scheme to run an absentee ballot mill involving hundreds of ballots, perpetrated by and through the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC," a political-action committee funded by the N.C. Democrat Party and other prominent statewide Democrats.  In addition to...

    The Los Angeles County Registrar is investigating how 83 ballots were sent to a single address at a San Pedro apartment. The unused ballots were found on Saturday by tenant Jerry Mosna, sitting on top of the mailbox center at his apartment building in San Pedro. The ballots were all addressed to a two bedroom apartment upstairs from Mosna's, belonging to an 89-year-old woman. All of the names on the ballots were different, and Mosna did not recognize the names on the ballot envelopes. Mosna and his wife took the ballots to the police and were told to bring them...

    In order to prevent or minimize the election fraud, to beat Soros'sss crooked voting machines, to make sure that your vote counts PROPERLY, we should use diligence and technology to obtain proof of fraud and report problems and prosecute the violators. In case when voting terminal is rigged, changing votes, dropping R votes or not registering - take the picture with your cell phone camera, take number of the voting terminal and report to officials. Publicize the problem. There were cases when boxes of ballots were "lost" especially those with majority of votes for R. Those having some time available,...

    A U.S. District Court judge issued a rare but fiery order Saturday lambasting the Florida secretary of state's response to a lawsuit filed by the Florida Democratic Party to change rules for vote-by-mail ballots to prevent thousands of them from being tossed. Judge Mark Walker wrote that Secretary of State Ken Detzner has one week to respond to the Oct. 3 lawsuit that seeks to allow voters who cast mail-in ballots with mismatched signatures to cast an updated ballot before the Nov. 8 election. Detzner’s lawyer contends the Department of State is not the right agency to be sued and...

    Several Brits living in Germany have said they have had to pay extra to send their ballots in for the EU referendum. Others worry that their votes may now be stuck in the post. Three British nationals have told The Local that Deutsche Post did not recognize the prepaid postage on mail-in ballots for the so-called Brexit referendum. The ballots have been marked with an International Business Response Service (IBRS) stamp, which the UK Electoral Commission assured The Local should mean that the sender pays nothing towards the cost of delivery. But Jon Worth, a Berlin-based blogger, described on Facebook...

    Billionaire George Soros’s crusade to make voter fraud even easier to commit suffered a setback in Virginia when an attempt to erase a common sense voter ID requirement from the law books was slapped down by a federal judge. It comes amidst an outbreak of voter fraud, the crime the Left says is a figment of conservatives’ imagination, in southern California.

The Errol Estate polling location in Apopka ran out of ballots at about 9:30 a.m., but was later restocked, Orange County Elections Supervisor Bill Cowels said. The Word of Life Church, also in Apopka, ran out and frustrated voters worried they would not have time to vote later if the problem wasn’t resolved quickly.

    We all know the elite are on the warpath against Donald Trump, with everyone from pundits, to major world leaders, to the Pope speaking out against him. Newt Gingrich recently said it’s because Trump isn’t part of the secret societies and hasn’t taken the initiation rites. Regardless, Trump has received a groundswell of support from the average conservative American, winning state primaries left and right. Ohio’s primary is coming up on March 15, and it’s a big one because it’s a “winner takes all” state. Well now it’s being alleged that Ohio’s GOP has intentionally set up a confusing...
