  • Senate Passes Bill to Clean Up the Nation's Voting Systems

    NY Times ^ | 4/12/02 | ROBERT PEAR
    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...
  • Leaked Documents Reveal Expansive Soros Funding to Manipulate Federal Elections

    PJ Media ^ | 11/7/2016 | J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS
    Leaked funding documents reveal an effort by George Soros and his foundations to manipulate election laws and process rules ahead of the federal election far more expansively than has been previously reported. The billionaire and convicted felon moved hundreds of millions of dollars into often-secret efforts to change election laws, fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, push public narratives about voter fraud, and to integrate the political ground game of the left with efforts to scare racial minority groups about voting rights threats. These Soros-funded efforts moved through dozens of 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) charities and involved the active compliance with civil rights groups, government...
  • Iowa Voter ID Law Survives Lawsuit Claiming It Is “An Attack On The Latino Community"

    Judicial Watch ^ | October 3, 2019
    In a much-needed victory for election integrity a judge has upheld Iowa’s voter identification law, rejecting claims by a leftist open borders group that the measure is unconstitutional because it makes it harder for minorities to cast ballots. When the group, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), filed the lawsuit, the head of its Iowa chapter referred to the state’s voter ID law as “an attack on the Latino community” that places many restrictions on the right to vote. He also said the measure, passed in 2017, is a form of “voter suppression.” Under the law Iowans must...
  • Los Angeles County’s disregard for election integrity: Susan Shelley

    Los Angeles Daily News ^ | 9/11/2019 | Susan Shelley
    And here’s what’s going to happen in Los Angeles. Instead of local polling places that are open only on Election Day, there will be 1,000 Vote Centers that will be open for 11 days. Registered voters will be able to vote at any Vote Center just by walking in and giving their name and address. They’ll be able to change their address, or their party preference, or their preference for by-mail or in-person voting. They’ll be able to request a new ballot. And they’ll be able to vote the same day that they make any of these changes. No identification...

    Root For America ^ | September 8, 2019 | Wayne Allyn Root
    Guns are in the news again. Democrats shamelessly use every mass shooting tragedy as an opportunity to take away the God-given and Constitution-given rights of gun owning Americans. Never forget what Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel once said, “Never let a crisis go to waste.” Also, never forget that 41 people were shot over the Labor Day weekend in Chicago. Isn’t that a “mass shooting?” Doesn’t 100% Democrat-controlled Chicago already have the strictest gun control in the country? But nonetheless, I’m willing to compromise. I’m willing to give Democrats a crown jewel of what they’ve crusaded for, for decades....
  • Trump is still blaming his 2016 New Hampshire loss on voter fraud — with zero proof

    President Trump, per usual, uttered quite a few astonishing soundbites during his 90-minute rally Thursday night in Manchester, N.H. But he was stirring controversy before he even reached New Hampshire. Speaking to reporters earlier that day as he left his New Jersey golf club, Trump revived an unfounded conspiracy theory that he would have won New Hampshire in 2016 but for buses full of out-of-state voters who illegally cast ballots.

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that a federal court has ordered the State of Maryland to produce voter list data for Montgomery County, the state’s biggest county. The court ruling comes in the Judicial Watch lawsuit filed July 18, 2017, against Montgomery County and the Maryland State Boards of Elections under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA).

    President Trump on Tuesday said Congress should not consider any "final agreement" on election security that does not include provisions mandating voters present identification while casting ballots. “No debate on Election Security should go forward without first agreeing that Voter ID (Identification) must play a very strong part in any final agreement. Without Voter ID, it is all so meaningless!” Trump tweeted Tuesday. Trump has long touted unfounded claims that he only lost the 2016 popular vote by 3 million ballots because of “millions of people who voted illegally.” The president went on to retweet a post claiming without evidence...

    “I’m worried about 2020, I think it’s 50-50. I think it’s a coin flip,” said Ted Cruz, the Republican U.S. Senator from Texas. The 2020 presidential race happens when the country is “deeply divided.” “It is an incredibly polarized country,” he said. “I think it all comes down to turnout.” “I think the Left is going to show up in massive numbers,” he continued. “And it all comes down to who shows up on the center-right.” Ted Cruz was on the Ben Shapiro Show Sunday when, 45-minutes into the interview, Shapiro asked Cruz for his assessment of the 2020 election...

    Acting Texas Secretary of State David Whitley (R) resigned on Monday after his office wrongly questioned the U.S. citizenship of nearly 100,000 people, The Houston Chronicle reported. The embattled official who oversaw the state’s elections penned a resignation letter to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who nominated him for the job in December. “Working alongside the employees in the secretary of state’s office, county election officials, and representatives of our #1 trading partner, Mexico, has been my distinct honor and privilege,” Whitley wrote in the letter obtained by the newspaper. “And to have your trust in doing so goes beyond what...

    Freedom Outpost ^ | May 23, 2019 | Tony Elliott
    As a republic, the biggest threat the United States faces is massive voter fraud and manipulation in the 2020 general elections. Contrary to what the neo-Nazi, Socialist Left want us to believe, they are a small minority compared to the millions of voters who believe in the US as a sovereign, constitutional nation. Thus, in a fair election, President Trump and those who share his vision of America would literally blow out the upcoming elections with a landslide win. Unfortunately, however, this did not happen in either the general elections in 2016 or the midterms in 2018. This did not...

    The midterm elections may have been a sign of what's ahead for the 2020 presidential election: experts say the voter turnout could be the highest in a century. The big picture: According to Michael McDonald, an elections expert at the University of Florida, turnout for the 2020 presidential election could be as high as 67% — the highest it's been since at least 1916. If that happens, President Trump will have a tougher fight for a second term. •He's driving turnout among those most unhappy with him (younger voters and people of color) even when he's not on the ballot....
  • Shakopee [MN] ordinance requires photo ID with gift card purchases

    05/21/2019 7:24:52 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 18 replies
    Anyone looking to buy Visa, American express, or Mastercard gift cards using a credit card will now have to show a government-issued photo ID. Also, purchases made at the self-service checkouts will no longer be allowed. “The ordinance was really born out of frustration,” said Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate. “This is five or 10 seconds to take your identification out and make sure it matches the card. I don’t think that’s asking too much..." Chief Tate believes other cities will adopt similar ordinances. “We’re the first, and hopefully not the last. We’ve had some inquiries from some outside agencies...

    vanity | 7 May 2019 | Andrew Sinclair
    The cry for making elections valid continues. The proposals to date include, in part, using government-sourced ID. The main argument against imposing this requirement is the cost and difficulty getting the IDs, even though more and more businesses, services, and even governments are requiring them. So, a slightly different proposal: have the election registrars take pictures of the voter as part of registration, after performing their current vetting actions. At election time, have the poll officers compare both signature and picture of the voter with the person in front of them. Motor voter? The DMV already takes a picture, so...

She is worried that he might not walk away if he loses? This is a big issue for the Dems? Big issue in general. No one wants cheating on Voting Day. Well the only answer is to make sure our Elections are as clean as can be, with every voter accounted for with VOTER ID. Everyone re-registers and gets a voting card. All voting happens in front of voting officials...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 5/1/19 | J. D. Heyes
    Shortly after the United States ‘liberated’ Iraq from Saddam Hussein, U.S. military forces, American diplomats, and Iraqi leaders established the country’s first truly free elections in decades. As part of their plan to prevent voter fraud and ensure election integrity, planners adopted a measure requiring everyone who voted to dip their finger in purple paint to show they had already cast a ballot (and, thus, could not cast another). It was a rudimentary but effective and sensible ‘voter ID’ measure that Left-wing Democrats in America would never tolerate — because, again, such a method was relatively cheat-proof and, well, Democrats...

    Republican legislative leaders have appealed a court ruling striking down new North Carolina constitutional amendments mandating photo identification to vote and lower caps on income tax rates. The notice filed on Monday with the Court of Appeals challenges Friday’s decision by a Wake County judge voiding legislative directives to put the amendments on the ballot and voter approval of them in November. Judge Bryan Collins ruled the 2017-18 General Assembly that approved the amendment referendums last year were illegally established because federal courts had declared legislative district boundaries illegal gerrymanders.

    A judge in North Carolina on Friday tossed out the state's constitutional amendment requiring a voter ID, citing prevalent gerrymandering in the state's General Assembly. Wake County Superior Court Judge G. Bryan Collins wrote in a ruling late Friday afternoon that the North Carolina General Assembly is so gerrymandered that its members do not truly represent the state's residents and thus should never have proposed a voter ID amendment in the first place. “An illegally constituted General Assembly does not represent the people of North Carolina and is therefore not empowered to pass legislation that would amend the state’s constitution,”...

    Voter ID requirements do not affect voter turnout, according to a new working paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research. The researchers looked at 1.3 billion data points on U.S. voters from 2008 to 2013, and they found that “the laws have no negative effect on registration or turnout, overall or for any group defined by race, gender, age, or party affiliation.”....More at link:http://thefederalist.com/2019/02/20/study-finds-voter-id-requirements-dont-repress-minority-votes/#.XG1qDU-2iqk.twitter
