  • Wisconsin Is Finally Free to Implement Voter ID Law

    The Daily Signal ^ | 3-23-15 | Hans von Spakovsky
    Great news for those interested in election integrity and common sense reforms like voter ID: the Supreme Court today removed the final legal obstacle to implementing Wisconsin’s voter ID law. The Court refused to hear the American Civil Liberties Union’s appeal of a Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals decision that threw out the injunction issued against the state’s ID law by federal district court Judge Lynn Adelman. Adelman, a Clinton appointee and former Democratic state senator, had thumbed his nose at the Supreme Court, claiming that he did not have to follow the Court’s prior 2008 opinion in Crawford v....

    The Supreme Court on Monday turned down a challenge to Wisconsin’s voter ID law, which it had previously kept from going into effect before November’s elections. The court’s decision not to review a federal appeals court ruling that upheld the law was a victory for Gov. Scott Walker (R) and perhaps other states that have tightened voting procedures to require additional identification.

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected a challenge to Wisconsin's Republican-backed law requiring voters to present photo identification to cast a ballot, a measure Democrats contend is aimed at keeping their supporters from voting. The justices declined to hear an appeal filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, which challenged the law. The ACLU said it then filed an emergency motion with a federal appeals court to try to keep the law from taking effect immediately. Republican Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel said the law cannot be implemented for the state's April 7 election because absentee ballots are already...

    Police opened 51 investigations on Tuesday related to alleged voting fraud ranging from impersonation, stolen ballots and threats against ballot officials, and 23 suspects were being pursued. Several attempts to subvert the voting process were noted in the north – four voters who arrived at their designated voting stations in Nahariya, Kiryat Tiv'on and Kiryat Ata found that someone had already voted in their name. Local police began investigating each incident. Police said that one man claimed that someone else may have used his lost drivers license to vote in his name.

    Within the first couple of months of Obama’s illegal immigration executive , at least ninety thousand Social Security cards were issued to illegal aliens. Now Republican Senators led by Ben Sasse and Jeff Sessions are asking the Obama administration to answer questions on how many additional social security cards were issued. The answer is important because it will allow citizens to know just how much money taxpayers are spending to illegal aliens. Social Security cards are keys of the kingdom to illegal aliens. With them, they are able to access a number of all sorts of benefits, including the Earned...

    The Obama Democrats have an audacious scheme for winning future elections. They just plan to import 5 million non-citizens and credential them as voters who will, in gratitude, vote Democratic. The way this devious formula works is stunningly simple. Just get the new Republican Congress (under Speaker John Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell) to pass a full-funding bill for Homeland Security without any exception for the funding of Obama's illegal executive amnesty, which will allow Obama to give work permits, Social Security numbers and driver's licenses to 5 million illegal aliens.

    Civil Rights Commissioner Peter Kirsanow warned Congress on Wednesday that President Obama’s deportation amnesty program, which will allow illegal immigrants to get Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses, will make it much easier for them to register and vote in U.S. elections — despite being ineligible to do so. Peter Kirsanow, a Bush appointee to the U.S. Commission of Civil Rights who has warned of dangers from mass illegal immigration, said the federal government does a poor job of helping states try to weed out ineligible voters, and once they have driver’s licenses and Social Security numbers it’s nearly impossible...

    There were so many violations of election rules in last November's election for Magoffin County judge-executive that the results must be thrown out, a judge has ruled. Preston also concluded county workers acting under the direct supervision of Hardin illegally spread gravel on private driveways in at least four or five cases shortly before the election. Also, the decision cited evidence that a few people sold their votes. In one case, a man named Larry Douglas Perkins, who operates the Handi Mart at Falcon, said he saw Simon Marshall the day of the election. Marshall had a $50 bill and...

    Democrat Keith Ellison thinks it’s difficult to vote in America and that it should be made far easier. Why does someone have to register to vote? Because voting is a privilege and it should be hard (relatively speaking) to vote in order to prevent voter fraud: About a hundred years ago, both political parties were caught STUFFING BALLOT BOXES with bogus votes, and the states decided to make it more difficult for a person to vote. So most of them set up a host of VOTING REQUIREMENTS, including REGISTRATION at least 10 to 30 days before an election. Most other...

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday by Betty Gill in Bibb County Superior Court, claims that her son, Joseph Allen Cason Jr., also was taken to vote in the 2013 Gordon city election, although he lived in another county. Employees, while acting in their scope of employment, allegedly took Cason and other residents to the polls to vote for the sister of the facility’s owner, who was running for mayor, according to the suit.

Employees at the NTN-Bower Corporation, a ball bearings manufacturer, have unsuccessfully tried to boot the labor giant out of their factory for two years. Workers voted to decertify the UAW in an earlier election, but an Obama-appointed National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) panel threw out the election. Another election was held in January of this year. The UAW prevailed, but it was later revealed...

It's the latest in a series of moves by senate leaders aimed at putting political distance between them and their colleagues facing criminal charges.

    The Justice Department has been, to say no more, unhelpful regarding attempts to fully investigate and properly punish the politicization and corruption of the Internal Revenue Service. Given the department’s seeming complicity in the coverup, would it not be appropriate to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS practice of suppressing the political activity of conservative groups? Civil forfeiture — the seizure of property suspected of being produced by, or involved with, crime — has become a lucrative business for lawless law enforcement. Civil forfeiture treats citizens worse than criminals, seizing the property of people neither convicted of nor...

    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.

    As voters across the state report voting machine irregularities this Election Day, ten machines have been taken out of service in Anne Arundel County. A handful of voters who contacted The Capital Tuesday said their votes were flipped from Republican candidates to Democrats. Another voter said his vote on a ballot question was switched. 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.

    While polling data makes it appear pro-life Republicans will take over the Senate from pro-abortion Democrats, whether votes cast on Election Day line up with those polls in another question. And one of the worries some pro-life voters have is whether illegal voting will prevent pro-life candidates from winning. virginiaIn Virginia, early reports are showing that some voters may be having problems getting votes registered properly for the candidates they support. One news report indicates voters have experienced voting errors — including voters who say votes for a Republican candidate have been registered for his Democrat opponent. According to a...

    This is the stuff of which conspiracy theories are made. This video posted by an anonymous Virginia voter suggests that he had quite a difficult time supporting the candidate of his choice: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Now, clearly this voting machine has nothing personal against Republicans, per se. The video shows this eager Virginia voter casting his ballot in favor of GOP Senate candidate Ed Gillespie. It does, however, seem to have a problem with 2nd Congressional District candidate Suzanne Patrick. This might be easily dismissed if it was an isolated incident, but it is not. According...

    barrage of automated phone calls offering false instructions to scores of election judges was "a serious attempt to disrupt" Chicago voting operations in the run-up to Tuesday’s vote, election officials said. Between Friday and Monday, an unknown number of judges — the paid partisan employees tasked with operating polling stations — received the misleading robocalls, according to the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners. “Given the level of response that we received, we suspect it was a large number of people — we don’t know how large,” Jim Allen, board spokesman, said Monday. Some of the judges received calls informing them...

    New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven voting officials were overwhelmed with more than 1,000 people who showed up the polls today to register to vote. Large crowds developed at several polling locations across the city, including the Edgewood School in Westville, City Hall, and the Nathan Hill School in the East Shore neighborhood. A New Haven Registrar of Voters told News 8 that crowds they never anticipated would show up on Election Day to register to vote, did show up. They said the mood was peaceful, and people were having fun, but tensions rose when the people in line...
  • Can Non-citizen Votes Decide U.S. Elections?

    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...

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — Senior Judicial Watch attorney Robert Popper, a former Department of Justice election integrity official, told Breitbart News that he’s concerned about seemingly high percentages of same-day registration for voting in Tuesday’s elections in New Hampshire. Popper is in New Hampshire watching polls on election day for Judicial Watch, a watchdog group. Popper said in an interview on Tuesday afternoon that at polling places he and his team have been at throughout the Granite State on election day, anywhere from 6 to 9 percent of voters registered on site. I wouldn’t call it irregularities. Here’s what we’re...

    Staffers from the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division will monitor polling places in 28 jurisdictions in 18 states today, to make sure there’s no attempt to prevent minorities, the disabled, the illiterate and non-English-speakers from voting. In the general election in 2012, federal monitors watched the polls in 51 jurisdictions in 23 states; and in the 2010 midterm, federal observers fanned out to 30 jurisdictions in 18 states. Although state and local governments administer elections, the Civil Rights Division is charged with enforcing the federal voting rights laws that protect the rights of all eligible citizens to cast ballots on...

    One of the biggest voter frauds may be the idea promoted by Attorney General Eric Holder and others that there is no voter fraud, that laws requiring voters to have a photo identification are just attempts to suppress black voting. Reporter John Fund has written three books on voter fraud and a recent survey by Old Dominion University indicates that there are more than a million registered voters who are not citizens, and who therefore are not legally entitled to vote. The most devastating account of voter fraud may be in the book “Injustice” by J. Christian Adams. He was...

    “Of all of the undercover investigations I’ve conducted, this was by far the easiest. They were willing to pass out fraudulently obtained ballots like it was Halloween candy,” said James O’Keefe. “With almost three-quarters-of-a-million inactive voters and no Voter ID law in place, we could have turned the election results for most major candidates in the state. What we uncovered in this video illustrates how easy it would be for a well-orchestrated campaign with no regard for the law to change the outcome of a major election. Voter laws across the country need to be changed immediately to prevent this...
