    The Tarrant County District Attorney's Office says a Grand Prairie woman who's not a U.S. citizen has been indicted by a grand jury for illegally voting in several Dallas County elections dating back to 2004. ... "This is a big deal," Wilson said in a prepared statement. "People insist this kind of thing doesn't happen, but it's happening right here at home. The principle of one citizen, one vote is one of our most fundamental rights as U.S. citizens, and must be protected.?

    Voter ID laws have been challenged because liberal Democrats deem them racist. I guess that's because they see blacks as being incapable of acquiring some kind of government-issued identification. Interesting enough is the fact that I've never heard of a challenge to other ID requirements as racist, such as those: to board a plane, open a charge account, have lab work done or cash a welfare check. Since liberal Democrats only challenge legal procedures to promote ballot-box integrity, the conclusion one reaches is that they are for vote fraud prevalent in many Democrat-controlled cities.

    With a recent decision in Alabama to close 31 DMV offices, the predictable howls of outrage form the Radical Left have come out - "Voter disenfranchisement!' "Jim Crow!" "Taking away our right to vote!" Expect to hear a lot more of this as we lead up to the 2016 election. PJTV's Christopher Coates responds to Contributor at The Nation Ari Berman's new book on voting rights with "Give Us the Ballot". Unsurprisingly, Berman's research leaves out some key facts, like this gem: Another serious omission is Berman's failure to discuss the controversies surrounding lawsuits brought during the George W.

    As Republican presidential candidates crisscross the nation to win key GOP strongholds, an analysis of the party’s own delegate rules reveals that Blue State Republicans have vast power to pick the party nominee. That’s good news for pragmatic, moderate Republicans such as a Jeb Bush, but not for conservative or religious candidates, such as Ben Carson. It also means that the eventual nominee could be very different from the leader in national polls because a candidate getting a few votes in the right (moderate) places can get as many if not more delegates than a candidate getting more votes in...

    Republicans held onto the Virginia Senate in fiercely contested elections Tuesday, leaving Gov. Terry McAuliffe without legislative leverage or political momentum as he works to deliver Virginia for his friend and ally Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016. The outcome was a blunt rebuke to McAuliffe (D), who had barnstormed the state with 24 events over the past four days and who portrayed the elections as a make-or-break moment for his progressive agenda.

    The U.S. Supreme Court early Saturday denied a last-ditch effort to block the enforcement of Texas' controversial voter ID law in the upcoming elections. The ruling comes two days before the start of early voting. Election Day is Nov. 4. Six of the nine justices agreed to deny a request to vacate Tuesdays judgment from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the state could enforce the law. The opinion removes the last traces of uncertainty over whether the law which supporters say prevents voter fraud would be in effect for the start of early voting.

The vote fraud machine is so polished and perfected in California that many, many local elections "won" by conservatives or even moderates end up going to the Leftists with nobody actually realizing what has happened.

    The recently concluded federal trial over North Carolinas election rules proved one thing beyond a reasonable doubt: The Obama administration and its partisan, big-money, racial-interest-group allies will stop at nothing to win elections. And using the courts to change election rules is a key part of their strategy. That was clearly evident in the federal courtroom in Winston-Salem. The plaintiffs, including the Justice Department, challenged a number of election reforms implemented in 2013 that were designed to reduce the cost and complexity of running elections and make it harder to commit voter fraud. The administration pushed a novel legal argument....

Sadly, too many states are making it harder for folks to voteinstituting photo ID laws that on the surface sound good, said Obama.

Its true the panel upheld a previous judges ruling the law violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, but its important to look at what the panel said. They noted the law was basically unintentionally discriminatory. As such, we conclude that the district court did not clearly err in determining that SB 14 has a discriminatory effect on minorities voting rights in violation of Section 2 of...

The Texas ID law is one of the strictest of its kind in the country. The law requires voters to bring a government-issued photo ID to the polls. Accepted forms of identification include a driver’s license, a United States passport, a concealed-handgun license and a so-called election identification certificate, a card issued by the State Department of Public Safety....

Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), who rose to prominence in the 1960s as a civil rights leader, will participate. The event will allow Obama to draw a sharp contrast with Republicans, many of whom argue some provisions of the 1965 law went too far. It will take...

Two-thirds of the adult population either voted "no", or did not vote, or did not register to vote.

    Roll Call ^ | 6/29/2015 | Simone Path
    Mondays big election law news came from the Supreme Courts penultimate decision of the term upholding Arizonas congressional districts. But before handing down its last three decisions, the court made voting-rights advocates happy by deciding not to review a different election case. Arizona citizens can continue to participate in voter registration drives without worrying about not having proof of citizenship documents, Shirley Sandelands, of the League of Women Voters of Arizona, said in a statement Monday. The case, Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al., was about whether Arizona and Kansas could require voters to prove their citizenship...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | June 29, 2015 | William A. Jacobson
    States not permitted to alter federal voter registration form to require proof of citizenship. The Supreme Court today refused to accept a case which sought to allow states to supplement a federal voter registration form so as to require proof of citizenship to vote. Such proof is particularly important given how freely many states are handing out drivers licenses to illegal immigrants, and the Obama administrations unilateral implementation of quasi-amnesty deferrals (some of which were stopped in court). Its just not enough anymore that someone is here legally (or at least, is not being deported) [Snip] This is not just...

    United Steel Workers ^ | June 29, 2015 | Alice Ollstein
    When Hillary Clinton issued a sweeping call for expanding and protecting voting rights, and called out Wisconsin and other states for passing discriminatory laws, Governor Scott Walker responded by blasting her views as extreme and far outside the mainstream. He defended his own record of cutting early voting days and implementing a strict voter ID law, saying these changes make it easier to vote and harder to cheat. But at a workshop held in Milwaukee in early June, state government employees struggled to explain the byzantine voting restrictions to a crowd of poll workers and community activists. Under Wisconsins voter...

    In Scott Walker and Hillary Clinton's perfect world, at around this time next year each will be preparing to participate in the 2016 presidential debates. For now, they will have to be content exchanging jabs from afar. The latest exchange began June 4, 2015 when Clinton, who is the leading Democratic presidential candidate, criticized Walker and three other GOP contenders in a speech at Texas Southern University in Houston for their support of voter ID laws. She claimed Walker had cut back early voting in Wisconsin and made it harder for college students to vote. We rated that Mostly True....

    Hillary Clintons top campaign lawyer is behind a multi-state push challenging voter identification laws implemented in recent years, efforts that are expected to reach numerous other states ahead of the 2016 elections.Marc Elias, a top campaign lawyer for Hillary Clinton and a partner at the Washington, D.C., law firm Perkins Coie, has filed lawsuits in three states thus far. The nationwide campaign is being fueled with money from the liberal billionaire George Soros.Elias first began exploring the possible challenges back in January 2014. Soros then became involved, vowing to throw his weight behind the effort in collaboration with Elias.We hope...
  • Juan Williams: Blacks' Support For Voter ID 'Amazing'

    He's also so often egregiously wrong, perhaps never more so than in his Monday column at the Hill. Williams is astonished that a recent poll, consistent with others, shows that over two-thirds of blacks support a photo identification requirement for voting. In the process, he cited perhaps the dumbest statistic I've ever seen on the topic, misrepresented a 2013 Supreme Court decision, and failed to understand that blacks may end up being most adversely affected if voter fraud ever become widespread.

    The Hill ^ | June 10, 2015 | Ben Kamisar
    Greg Nash Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) has proposed a bill to automatically register Americans to vote, fresh off of similar calls by Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Today, too many politicians are trying to make it harder than ever for citizens to make their voices heard at the ballot box, Cicilline said in a statement on Wednesday. The Automatic Voter Registration Act will protect the right to vote and expand access for eligible voters across the United States. I thank my colleagues who have co-sponsored this important legislation that helps to expand one of our most essential rights as...

    Phyllis Schlafly spotlights devious plan to capture even more illegal-alien votes She apparently decided it wont be enough to rely on the 66 million people who voted twice for Barack Obama, many of whom are disillusioned by the failure of hope and change. Obama promised an end to wars in the Middle East, a more prosperous economy for the average American and more harmonious race relations, but all three problems have only gotten worse. Since Hillary wont have the youthful exuberance that propelled Obama to his unlikely double victory, she plans to build a whole new electorate out of people...

    Those Republicans! Here's the lowdown on 'em -- and on their lousy, lowdown approach to governing. They don't want the wrong people voting. They're "scared of letting citizens have their say." They're engaged in "a sweeping effort to disempower and disenfranchise people of color, poor people, and young people from one end of our country to the other." Don't you just want to kick 'em? Don't you just want to vote for Hillary Clinton? Which after all is the point of Clinton's demagogic tirade last week -- getting you to vote for her so she can launch new and better...

    Hillary Clinton has laid out her game plan for winning back the White House for herself and her husband next year. Let's hope Republicans were paying attention. She apparently decided it won't be enough to rely on the 66 million people who voted twice for Barack Obama, many of whom are disillusioned by the failure of "hope and change." Obama promised an end to wars in the Middle East, a more prosperous economy for the average American and more harmonious race relations, but all three problems have only gotten worse. Seeing as Clinton won't have the youthful exuberance that propelled...

    Hillary Clinton made it clear this week that she is not just seeking votes, she is seeking to overhaul the way we vote. At speeches in Texas, Clinton railed against voter ID laws, praised efforts to expand early voting periods, and made the case for automatic voter registration. In the latter case, Clinton believes every American who turns 18 should be automatically registered to vote. She also would like to see everyone already over 18 registered in a similar way, though she declined to say how she would make this happen. Clintons remarks on automatic voter registration come only months...
