    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...

    The Democrats say that there is no reason to require voters to present identification, nor is any other measure to curb voter fraud needed. They should meet one of their own, Opelousas, La., Mayor Don Cravins Sr. While speaking on Nov. 3, the day before the midterm elections, Cravins told a gathering, "If you 'early voted'" for Sen. Mary Landrieu, "go vote again tomorrow. One more time's not going to hurt." In Louisiana, voters can go to the polls early, which Cravins sees as an invitation to stuff the ballots. But he's not worried about breaking the law. In the...

    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...

    Who's up for a fresh addition to the ever-expanding "voter fraud is a Republican myth" file?  Democratic officials and campaign operatives have been caught on tape encouraging illegal voting on several occasions in recent election cycles, and anti-voter ID activists have literally cheered a swing-state poll worker who was convicted of the practice.

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.

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.

    In an interesting coincidence, in a number of precincts, Republican Ed Gillespie received fewer than 10 votes. Yet, this was not because of a lack of eligible voters. Instead, Gillespie's opponent, Mark Warner, did extremely well in such precincts, drastically out-gaining his opponent. Warner went on to win. Added together, the precincts that Gillespie received 9 or fewer votes adds up to 98. In those same precincts, Warner received an astounding 5,657 votes. Even stranger is the fact that a number of these precincts were near each other and drastically favored Warner. In Newport News City, there were seven precincts...

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.

    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...

    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...

    Voter fraud definitely exists, no matter what Eric Holder says.  The only question is, how many races will it determine? What hit me hard these past few weeks is how voter fraud perpetuated by leftists is an expected norm.  See here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here among many examples. We read about places across the country where fraud is being planned and executed, yet nothing seems to come of it.  I wonder: why aren’t these people arrested? We read about tens of thousands of people who are in this country...
  • One of Eight Voter Registrations Is Flawed, James O’Keefe Shows

    A Pew Center on the States study in 2012 found that one out of eight voter registrations is inaccurate, out-of-date, or a duplicate. Some 2.8 million people are registered in two or more states, and 1.8 million registered voters are dead. So O’Keefe decided to take some of the 700,000 “inactive” voters the Voting Integrity Project says are on the rolls in North Carolina, the site of one of the nation’s most hotly contested Senate races, and see just how easy it would be to obtain a ballot in their name. Sadly, it was child’s play as his video demonstrates....

    DNC Head Predicts Democrats Will Hold Senate Because of Strong Ground Game By Benjamin Bell Nov 2, 2014 Despite gloomy polling forecasts, Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., maintained today on “This Week” that her party would retain control of the Senate in Tuesday’s midterm elections, saying the party’s ground game would make the difference. “I know I would take ours over theirs any day of the week,” Wasserman Schultz told “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos

    A new app, which allows users to conveniently report voter fraud, will be available for iOS and Android on November 1. The app, called VoteStand, is being launched by True the Vote, an anti-voter fraud group that was one of the groups unconstitutionally targeted by the Obama IRS. According to the VoteStand website, “the app uses a high level encryption, inside the app allowing information to get to the right people to make reporting voter fraud easily.”
  • La Raza's Advocacy Little More Than A Scheme To Encourage Illegals To Vote

    Elections: The National Council of La Raza is promoting no-identification voting states to its followers. Might that have something to do with its advocacy of illegal immigration and the Democrats' flagging electoral fortunes? La Raza, as it's known, is no ordinary nongovernmental organization in the "anti-poverty" racket. A group of lawyers and activists, it has long functioned as the illegal alien lobby in the U.S., advocating aggressively for the cause of open borders. For its latest stunt, it has published on its website and social media a list of voting stations that don't require IDs. Interesting, given a recent Harvard...

    We were warned all along that if you let those nasty old Republicans take charge of things they would get up to all sorts of dirty tricks, including finding ways to stop primarily minority, younger or low income residents (read: Democrats) from voting. This weekend, these ominous portents apparently came true, as I saw one liberal after another touting a shocking report from Michael Wells Jr. at Politics USA with the Halloween level scary title, Minority Voter Suppression In North Carolina Witnessed Firsthand. So I guess they were right after all, eh? I mean, here we have a “firsthand” witness,...

    The first case of voter fraud in New Mexico this election has been confirmed by the Rio Arriba County Clerk's Office. According to the Rio Arriba County Clerk's office, a voter trying to cast an early ballot in Espanola Saturday was told he had already voted three days prior. The man told poll workers he hadn't voted. He was then shown the signature of the voter, but he says it wasn't his signature. Officials say they were able to confirm that the signature on the original ballot did not match the legal voter's signature on file. Poll workers allowed the...

    An impostor illegally used a New Mexico's man vote three days before the actual person came in to vote. The incident occurred in Rio Arriba County. When the real person came to cast his ballot, he was at first turned away, being told that he had already voted. Only when the real person contested, saying he had not in fact voted, did election officials review their files and compare the signatures they had on record with the one signed by whoever voted three days earlier. The signatures did not match. Why the officials did not check this in the first...

    Five common voter suppression tactics that experts look for: ELECTION DATE CHANGE Emails, robocalls or paper flyers placed in mailboxes or on car windshields telling voters that one political party votes on one day, and everyone else on another, are simply not true. INTIMIDATION In the past, billboards with ominous messages have appeared in neighborhoods, "observers" have threatened to challenge the eligibility of certain voters. ARREST THREATS Polling places do not have access to voters' criminal records. Anything that says you can be arrested for showing up to vote if you have unpaid parking tickets, outstanding arrest warrants or a...
