Voter ID Laws Needed As 44,000 More Illegal Voters Are Found
An crosscheck of voter rolls in Virginia and Maryland as part of an ongoing investigations into ways to identify voters who are registered in multiple jurisdictions has turned up 44,000 people who are registered in both states. The Virginia Voters Alliance, a non-partisan vote-integrity group, has been conducting the investigation and unearthed this enormous potential voter fraud.
“The Virginia Voters Alliance is investigating how to identify voters who are registered and vote in Virginia but live in the states that surround us,” Virginia Voters Alliance President, Reagan George, told the State Board of Elections.
And that’s just the beginning. George said his group will expand their search for illegal duplicate voters in the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia and Georgia. “We are also determining the best way to identify non-citizens who have registered to vote and may have voted in past elections,” George said.
Working with the Privileges and Elections committees of the state House and Senate, the Virginia Voters Alliance has also identified 31,000 dead voters via the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File. Subsequent processing by the State Board of Elections actually found 40,000 to 60,000 registered voters who are dead.
“Dead voter registrations are prime targets for voter fraud which generate few complaints,” George noted. Along with Jay DeLancy of the North Carolina Voter Integrity Project, George has challenged the State Board of Elections to:
- Tighten Virginia’s Voter ID law that allows absentee voters to use mailed ballots without affirming their identity.
- Check the 50,000-plus patient beds in Virginia nursing homes and rehab centers amid reports of voting irregularities there.
- Require proof of citizenship to register to vote. as numerous states now do.
- Annually audit felons who are not allowed to vote.
“Certain nonviolent felons, especially those who commit voter fraud, should never be given back their right to vote,” George said, adding “Virginia must control the registration process, as well as the form used to register voters. The current system is the perfect vehicle for identity theft and ‘lost’ registrations.”
“There needs to be a clearinghouse for all voter fraud referrals statewide,” he said. “The State Board of Elections would be the perfect place to assume that role and provide transparency for the public.” The board should also open its voter-crosscheck data to the public and to publicize cases of voter fraud.
DeLancy said groups that downplay or dismiss the incidence of ongoing voting irregularities use pretzel logic, because “If prosecutors don’t prosecute, there’s no ‘crime,’” he noted.
The three-member State Board of Elections, which is controlled by Republicans until the end of the year, took the Virginia Voters Alliance recommendations under advisement.
Voter ID Laws needed in all 50 states to prevent voter fraud of exactly this kind, as well as other forms of voter fraud, and stories like this prove it. Any politician who disagrees with Voter ID Laws is looking for a way to cheat the vote, or at the very least, wants that door left open. Not coincidentally, they are all Democrats.
