    HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) - Harrisonburg officials have confirmed that about 20 voter applications in the swing state of Virginia were recently sent in under the names of dead people. Harrisonburg Registrar Debbie Logan told news outlets Thursday that investigators have found 18 to 20 potentially fraudulent registrations. The Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/2dwFsQ9 ) reports the applications were turned in by a voter registration group called HarrisonburgVOTES. The group could not be reached for comment Thursday.

    But remember, Voter ID is racist. It discriminates against illegal voters. But first a step back. We're talking about the Turkish Muslim mall terrorist in Washington, not the Somali Muslim mall shooter in Minnesota. We're getting so much Muslim terror these days that it takes work to keep it all straight. The Cascade Mall shooting suspect, Arcan Cetin, may face an additional investigation related to his voting record and citizenship status. Federal sources confirm to KING 5 that Cetin was not a U.S. citizen, meaning legally he cannot vote. However, state records show Cetin registered to vote in 2014 and...

    HOLLIDAYSBURG - Blair County has received requests for almost 800 absentee ballots so far from registered voters who want to participate in the November election. The normal number is about 300, county Director of Elections Sarah Seymour said Friday. And there's still time to ask - through Nov. 1. Pennsylvania's election laws allow the distribution of absentee ballots for several reasons. In Blair County, the elections office typically distributes them, upon request, to voters who will be outside their municipality on Election Day and to voters with an illness or disability...(snip) Seymour also said Friday that her office has received...

    A federal judge Tuesday blocked Election Day voter registration at polling places in Illinois, declaring a state law allowing the practice unconstitutional because it created one set of rules for cities and another for rural areas. Voters will still be able to register Nov. 8 and cast a ballot for president but only at a limited number of sites, including the county clerk's office, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections. The ruling, handed down on National Voter Registration Day, is the latest front in a broader battle between Democrats led by House Speaker Michael Madigan and Republicans led...

When a person is convicted of a felony, they lose many of their civil rights, including the right to vote. After serving their time, they can apply to have their rights restored, but Florida has all but eliminated the restoration of rights since Gov. Rick Scott took office. 9 Investigates compared Scott's record to that of former Gov. Jeb Bush during the first four years he was in office, as well as to the four years that former Gov.

Check out the numbers below, and remember, Trump also dominates the share of Independent votes as well, meaning he likely already has a 200,00+ vote lead over Hillary in Florida.

It's not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported...

One man is challenging that law in court. Portage resident Joel Crookston filed a lawsuit Friday in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan against the Secretary of State, saying the law infringes upon his right to free speech under the First Amendment. In November 2012, Crookston posted a photo of his ballot that included his vote for a write-in candidate. The lawsuit claims that...

The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an Indiana-based law firm that litigates to protect election integrity, filed a lawsuit in April against the city of Alexandria on behalf of the Virginia Voters Alliance, a group dedicated to improving election laws. The groups contended that voter rolls in Alexandria have for years contained more registrants than people of voting age in the city. In January, PILF sent a statutory notice letter to Anna J.

Although he has repeatedly lost in court, one case that remains open will determine whether thousands of Kansans will be able to vote in November's local and state elections.

    President Obama Declares Donald Trump 'Unfit' to Be President Obama to GOP: Why keep endorsing him? 5:03 President Barack Obama called Donald Trump "unfit" and "woefully unprepared" to be president on Tuesday, his strongest comments yet against the Republican presidential nominee. During a press conference at the White House with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Obama posed the question to the Republican Party: "If you are repeatedly having to say what Trump says is unacceptable, why are you still endorsing him?"

    Two recent news stories highlight how pernicious the welfare state has become in America today. The first was an announcement by the feds that food stamps can be used to have groceries delivered right to a recipient’s door. Service with a smile. The Obama administration says it is too much of a hardship for those on welfare to actually travel to the grocery store. What’s next? Cooking the meal for them? If only the DMV would do home deliveries for drivers licenses.The second story was about the hullabaloo over a proposal by Maine governor Paul LePage to prohibit food stamp...

    Republican strategist, lobbyist, and Donald Trump confidante Roger Stone joined Breitbart‘s Milo Yiannopoulos to discuss voter fraud and how Trump has the ability to beat it. “I think your audience knows, I think we all know, that in this day and age, a computer can do anything. These voter machines are essentially a computer. Who is to say they could not be rigged?” asked Stone on the topic of voter fraud. “Of course they can. Now, you ask me why the Republicans don’t do it, but sadly I think they do,” Stone said. “That’s why I briefly had to leave...
  • Why Voting for Donald Trump Is a Morally Good Choice

    Some of my Christian friends tell me they can’t in good conscience vote for Donald Trump because, when faced with a choice between “the lesser of two evils,” the morally right thing is to choose neither one. They recommend voting for a third-party or write-in candidate. As a professor who has taught Christian ethics for 39 years, I think their analysis is incorrect. Now that Trump has won the GOP nomination, I think voting for Trump is a morally good choice. American citizens need patience with each other in this difficult political season. Close friends are inevitably going to make...

    Most Americans believe there’s a lot at stake in the 2016 presidential election—but none more than Black women. According to a new poll reported in the Washington Post, nearly three-quarters of African-American women are “strongly” afraid of the consequences of their candidate losing the election. The Gallup poll found that 72 percent of Black women, who are by far Hillary Clinton supporters, fear a Donald Trump presidency. White women (at 56 percent) and Black men (at 55 percent) are a distant second and third, among those who strongly fear their candidate losing. What explains the high level of anxiety for...

    When will we wake up to realize that it is America who is the Lady in Distress much more so than the wife of any politician? The America-wrecking ‘progressives’ are heading to their all glitz and glamor Democratic National Convention tomorrow, laughing hilariously every step of the way. The last time the DNC hit the global limelight they introduced a narcissist with zero to qualify him from faux Greek columns at Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver. It was back then when a jumped-up street fighting community organizer was passed off as The Messiah—and none of the groans...

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Saturday he’s already begun restoring the voting rights of convicted felons one-by-one, after the state Supreme Court rescinded his executive action granting voting rights en masse to more than 200,000 people convicted of serious crimes. “Last night I instructed my staff to comply with the court’s order and individually restore the rights of the more than 13,000 Virginians who had successfully registered to vote following my April 22nd executive order,” Mr. McAuliffe said in an email to supporters. “Soon they will have their rights back and will be able to have a voice in their...

    The Supreme Court of Virginia on Friday struck down Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s executive order restoring voting rights to 206,000 felons, dealing a severe blow to what the governor has touted as one of his proudest achievements in office. In a 4-3 ruling, the court declared McAuliffe’s order unconstitutional, saying it amounts to a unilateral rewrite and suspension of the state’s policy of lifetime disenfranchisement for felons. The court ordered the Virginia Department of Elections to “cancel the registration of all felons who have been invalidly registered” under McAuliffe’s April 22 executive order and subsequent orders. As of this week, 11,662...
