    The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday compared the violent, bloody attacks on African Americans during civil rights marches in 1965 to voter ID laws passed by various states in the last few years. Co-anchor Norah O'Donnell talked to Oprah Winfrey, producer/star of the new film Selma. O'Donnell marveled, "...Given the Voting Rights Act, 1965, I went back and looked. Thirteen states have passed more restrictive voter ID laws in the last three years, that states are trying to make it harder to vote."

    Secretary of state alleges violations The Colorado Secretary of State's Office alleges that Boulder County Clerk Hillary Hall "violated state law in several ways" during the processing of ballots and the tallying of votes cast in the 2014 general election. Hall declined Friday to give a point-by-point response to those allegations, which included: •"She systematically discriminated against Republican election judges, by excluding people nominated by the Republican Party, and even appointing people not registered to vote." •"She prevented watchers from having a meaningful opportunity to observe and verify the signature review process, created an artificially cramped area for them to...
  • Landrieu: C'mon, My Fellow Democrat's Pro-Voter Fraud Advice Was Just 'a Joke'

    Sen. Mary Landrieu has finally weighed in on the caught-on-tape call from a Louisiana Democratic official for supporters to commit voter fraud by casting more than one ballot in last month's election. You'll be relieved to know that she's reviewed the tape and has come to the conclusion that her (refreshingly candid!) chief of staff's father was just kidding. A local NBC affiliate addressed the controversy -- be sure to stay tuned for the decidedly un-amused reaction from average voters, and pardon the technical difficulties when the station attempts to playback Don Cravins Sr's problematic remarks: Sen Landrieu: It was...

    For the third time since 2012, a majority of the Boulder County Canvass Board has voted not to certify the all-mail results of Nov. 4, citing, among other allegations, Colorado's "bogus" signature verification process, which some board members say presents potentially unreliable data. ... The Canvass Board is tasked with ensuring the total number of ballots counted on Election Day does not exceed the total number of ballots cast. It is also responsible for certifying the official abstract of votes, which, in this case, is due to Secretary of State Scott Gessler on Monday. Its recommendation came on a 4-3...

    Barack Obama's latest federal nomination, Loretta Lynch, is just as bad as her predecessor Eric Holder. In a video of Lynch speaking in Long Beach, New York nine months ago, she declared that Voter ID laws in the "Deep South" states are racist. Did she use those exact words? No, but the idea is most definitely there. "I serve at the pleasure of the first African-American president of the United States of America," she said to a round of applause.

Everyone was quite friendly, and it was a pleasant experience. They were so friendly, in fact, that they even offered a service to voters, advertised by a sign on the wall: Voters, presumably those who would have difficulty walking into the polling station due to disability, could wait in their idling cars, honk their horns and have someone aid them in voting curbside.

    Election officials in San Antonio, Texas are examining a disabled voting machine after it allegedly left Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott's name off of the ballot. Earlier on Tuesday, the machine was being utilized in Bexar County's First Chinese Baptist Church of San Antonio. Bexar County Election Administrator Jacque Callan told local media outlet KENS 5 that the machine was "experiencing issues." According to Callan, the machine has a counter which will allow election officials to determine exactly how many voters used it. At this point, there is no explanation as to how -- or why -- the glitch occurred.

Donna Duncan, Maryland Board of Elections assistant deputy for election policy, said 34 reports of faulty voting machines had been filed statewide by early afternoon. Fifteen machines were taken out of service across the state, including the 10 in Anne Arundel County as of 4:40 p.m.

    The heated debate over voter fraud and illegal voting has largely occurred without reliable data on the extent of the problem, but that may be changing with a new study that is gaining significant attention, including Guy Benson’s piece on Townhall. The study publicized by The Washington Post has shown that noncitizen voting may be much more common than most people probably suspect, and could have changed the result in close elections. Those findings also call into question other aspects of an electoral system that is effectively policed by the “honor system,” as Hans von Spakovsky has argued elsewhere.Federal law...

    Theft: As "calibration errors" switch votes in Illinois and Maryland, an election watchdog group sues the latter over massive voting by noncitizens in one county after discovering voters registered in multiple states. The fact that many people will do anything to get out of jury duty has exposed massive fraudulent voting in Frederick County, Md., that may have been going on for years. Illegal aliens who stated they were noncitizens on jury duty forms were found to have cast votes in elections. The Virginia Voters Alliance (VVA) cross-checked jury duty forms with individual voting records and found that hundreds of...

    In the past week we've see votes cast on machines in Illinois' Cook County and in Maryland switch from Republican to Democrat due to "calibration errors." Watchdog.org has done phenomenal work in documenting changed votes. Now, a new report from The Weekly Standard shows that votes cast in Illinois for Republicans are being changed yet again in favor of Democrats. ... So what do we do about this? If machines in different states repeatedly changed votes from Democrat to Republican, Eric Holder would have launched a federal investigation under suspicions of fraud and I doubt "calibration error" would be accepted...

    Retired Encinitas teacher admits cursive writing on mail ballots similar to hers. The November 2012 mail ballot cast in the name of Dara Welty carries a signature that looks nothing like hers. That’s no surprise. Welty — nature lover, world traveler, opera singer — died in Bolivia in 1998 at age 22. Her home was in Encinitas, where she remains registered to vote to this day. Since her death, 14 votes have been cast in her name. U-T Watchdog found the suspicious pattern and reported on it in July. The District Attorney’s Office this week determined there was “insufficient evidence”...

    For people who live in nursing or long-term care facilities the process of casting a ballot is not always simple and can be controversial. Election teams sometimes go into the group homes to help residents cast ballots. One woman, who didn’t want to be identified, recorded a conversation with her father about his voting experience. The man, in his 90s, claimed he was confused and perhaps influenced. ... There are individual but unlocked mailboxes for each resident. That’s why they are personally given their ballot.

    Conservative activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is out with a new video showing Democratic campaign workers appearing to condone and assist an individual posing as an illegal immigrant to vote in North Carolina. In the video, a woman pretending to be an illegal immigrant from Brazil asks a number of campaign workers — many working for candidates running for law enforcement offices in the state — if she can vote, despite being an illegal immigrant. Each person the video shows her asking answers that it is not a problem. It is illegal for a non-citizen to vote, regardless of whether...

    An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years. The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people...
  • Megachurch Pastors Divided Over Texas Voter ID Law; T.D. Jakes Calls It 'Needless,'

    Two of Texas's most popular megachurch pastors, T.D. Jakes of The Potter's House and Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church, Dallas, reflected dueling positions on the state's controversial voter identification law. Jakes dismissed it as "needless" while Jeffress argued that the law is necessary ahead of Tuesday's mid-term elections. The Texas legislature passed Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) into law in 2011 in a bid to curb voter fraud. It requires voters seeking to cast their ballots in person to present photo identification, such as a Texas driver's or gun license, a military ID or a passport according to votetexas.gov....

    If you can’t cover it up anymore, turn it into a joke. President Obama poked fun at the checkered political history of his hometown Chicago on Tuesday, reminding voters in Wisconsin to vote early — but not often.“You can only vote once — this isn’t Chicago, now,” Obama said at a rally in Milwaukee for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke.Obama was brought in to fire up the Democratic base, traveling to a ward in which he carried 99 percent of the vote in the 2012 presidential contest against Republican Mitt Romney. At least it’s not one of those places where...
