    OLYMPIA, Wash. - As the coronavirus pandemic knocks primary election after primary election off schedule, Democrats argue the outbreak shows the country needs to move toward one of their longtime goals - widespread voting by mail - to protect the November election. But Democrats’ hopes for using the crisis to expand voting by mail face firm Republican opposition, as well as significant logistical challenges. In some states, it would amount to a major revamp of their voting system just eight months before an election. Vote-by-mail boosters already lost the first round of the fight. Democrats tried and failed to insert...

    WASHINGTON - Presidential elections are typically prime time for bringing new people into the political process, but the coronavirus pandemic is making voter registration more difficult than ever, prompting concerns that many young Americans and other nonvoters might miss their chance to get onto the rolls before November. "This is the moment when we historically see people take action to register to vote," said Kristen Clarke, the president and executive director of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. "The public health crisis has brought all of that activity virtually to a grinding halt." But now, all the traditional...
  • Democrat Voter Fraud in Minnesota

    03/10/2020 2:52:44 AM PDT · by a little elbow grease · 16 replies ^ | 3/9/20 | Bruce Hendry
    What most people would call voter fraud is actually legal in Minnesota elections. Voter Fraud in Minnesota, and one can presume elsewhere, is practiced almost entirely by Democrats, who have waged a relentless campaign to block any attempt to block ineligible voters from voting, or eligible voters from voting more than once as “voter suppression.” It’s actually technically incorrect to say that there is large voter fraud in Minnesota, because what you and I would consider voter fraud is in fact legal in Minnesota. The Democrats euphemistic phrase for voter fraud is “ineligible voting” but the manipulation of the voting...

  • Dallas County asks to recount Super Tuesday election results after 44 thumb drives discovered

    It’s uncertain which precincts are involved or if the apparent winners from any races will change. Dallas County Elections Administrator Toni Pippins-Poole discovered her office did not count about 10% of the ballots that voters cast on Super Tuesday. She is now asking a court to let her conduct a manual recount of the votes, after she discovered 44 thumb drives containing ballots that were not included in the final results.

    The primary season has only just begun, but already, it has reminded us of several truisms that the major parties always forget from year to year: - That young people just don’t vote in the numbers that older people do, so don’t build your hopes upon changing the makeup of the electorate… - That money can’t make up for a lack of charisma, so a rich bore can’t just spend his way to victory… and of course, - That our primary calendar looks like something designed by a practical jokester rather than someone who wants the best for America. But...

    MEMPHIS - - Vanderbilt University student Will Newell wishes it was easier for college students like him to cast ballots in Tennessee, one of 14 states holding a presidential primary on Super Tuesday. The campus has no locations for early voting, so students must visit an off-campus polling location to cast a ballot on Election Day. Newell drives but worries that many students who don’t have their own transportation won’t make it to a precinct. He said some campus groups offer rides to students, but the university itself does not provide a shuttle. He supports a bill introduced in the...

    EXCLUSIVE: Voters in Florida, Michigan and Colorado are threatening to sue their states after an independent organization discovered that each has counties with unusually high voter registration rates -- in some cases, they found more registered voters than actual people eligible to vote. The data was compiled by the Honest Elections Project, a new nonprofit organization that blames the seemingly implausible statistics on a failure of states to properly update voter rolls to account for people moving, dying or being incarcerated. The group examined publicly available registration records and compared it with citizen voting-age data from the U.S. Census Bureau,...
  • North Carolina court blocks voter ID law as discriminatory

    A North Carolina appeals court on Tuesday blocked the state’s voter identification law from going into effect, finding it was a discriminatory attempt to suppress the black vote, in a victory for Democrats and voting rights advocates. The appeals court reversed a lower court decision that denied a preliminary injunction against a law requiring voters to produce a photo ID at the polls. The ruling puts the voter ID law on hold until the underlying lawsuit challenging it is decided, likely blocking it for the November 2020 general election. The law did include a provision allowing people without proper ID...

    This is an "ambitious" challenge, which can still be tackled, the president believes. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky plans to introduce for Ukrainians the opportunity to vote in elections online, including with the use of a smartphone. "In general, our goal is to allow people to pursue relations with the government using a smartphone and the internet, including when voting in presidential, parliamentary or local elections," Zelensky said during the presentation of the Diya [Action] mobile app in Kyiv, according to an UNIAN correspondent. As UNIAN reported earlier, on February 6, Ukraine launched a Diya mobile application, opening access to some...

    Luis Gomez is in a back room hidden behind columns of tires at his family’s tire shop in Des Moines. He’s got his tablet open and he’s scrolling through his Facebook friends to see who he can call to ask about their caucus plans, but the timing is tricky. It’s 9:00 on a Tuesday morning and a lot of people are at work. He’s wearing a “Bernie Beats Trump” button, a permanent fixture on his coat. Gomez, a 31-year-old Mexican immigrant, is in the country as a legal resident, so he can’t participate in the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3....

    It’s 2020, which means election year is upon us. And although Washington is currently preoccupied with the impeachment melodrama going on in the Senate, we should not lose sight of problems in our voter registration and election process that imperil the integrity of upcoming local, state, and federal elections. When our citizens exercise their right to choose their leaders, their votes shouldn’t be diluted or stolen through fraud or administrative errors. Unfortunately, that remains a problem, as demonstrated by the proven cases in The Heritage Foundation’s election fraud database. We recently added 18 instances of election fraud to the database,...

    Wisconsin judge fines state elections commission for failing to remove thousands from voter rolls A Wisconsin judge on Monday found the state Elections Commission, as well as three of its members, in contempt of court for their failure to remove thousands of people from Wisconsin voter rolls in compliance with an order he imposed in December, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Judge Paul Malloy said the three Democratic commission members who have fought his order, Ann Jacobs, Julie Glancey and Mark Thomsen, must each pay $250 a day for every day they fail to comply, while the commission itself must...

    Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg would seek to standardize federal elections across the United States and prevent states from blocking felons from voting under a plan aimed at expanding access to elections rolled out on Friday. Bloomberg’s plan echoes proposals offered by his Democratic rivals as the party shows a unified front on the issue of combating voter suppression. Voting access is an important issue for the party’s minority voters, who are often seen as targeted by Republican lawmakers. Under the voting rights plan, Bloomberg would seek to create a non-partisan commission that would look to standardize federal elections, including...

    Many Latinos believe a citizenship question will be asked on the 2020 census and are less likely to participate, a national Latino leader told Congress on Thursday. Arturo Vargas, executive director of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials Educational Fund, said the “failed debacle” of the citizenship question has instilled a lasting fear that needs to be remedied. “They believe there will be a citizenship question on the form despite its absence and many fear how the data will be used,” Vargas said. “This is exacerbated by a hostile environment toward immigrants propagated by this administration.” Last...

    Virginia Democrats Mamie E. Locke and Kaye Kory will introduce a measure Jan. 8 that would allow prisoners to vote from jail in the state. The bill appears to allow prisoners to vote in the jurisdiction of the jail, potentially making inmates a powerful voting bloc in sparsely populated communities. It is one of numerous radical bills that could be passed rapidly after the Democrats take control of Virginia’s legislature for the first time in years. Democratic lawmakers in Virginia, who recently won control of the state’s legislature, proposed altering the state’s constitution to allow prisoners and mentally handicapped individuals...

    One registered voter in the city of Detroit was born almost 200 years ago, according to a lawsuit. This still-active voter would have been born 14 years before Michigan became a state. Sound fishy to you? That's not all. This ancient voter appears to be one of thousands falsely registered in Detroit, many of whom died a decade ago or more yet were still able to drag themselves from their graves to vote in the most important election of our lifetimes (though, I guess, not their lifetimes). This week, the Public Interest Legal Foundation filed a lawsuit against Detroit election...

    The Senate overwhelmingly passed an ambitious bill today to clean up the nation's election procedures, to help states buy new voting machines and to prevent ballot disputes like those that left painful memories of "butterfly ballots" and "hanging chads" after the last presidential election. The bill, approved by a vote of 99 to 1, goes to a conference committee of senators and members of the House of Representatives. In December, the House passed legislation with a similar purpose that differs from the Senate bill in many significant details. Both bills set minimum federal standards for the conduct of elections across...
