meanwhile we have a few thousand cases of attempted voter suppression, just in North Carolina.

North Carolina counties must restore voters to rolls, judge rules


A federal judge in North Carolina granted a preliminary injunction to the NAACP on Friday, holding that residents whose voter registrations were canceled in recent months because of a so-called "individual challenge law" must have their registration restored.

The ruling could affect thousands of voters.

"The court concludes that the balance of the equities and public interest factors weigh decidedly in favor of protecting eligible voters who are being removed from the voter rolls," wrote Loretta Biggs of the US District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.
Kim Westbrook Strach, the executive director of the North Carolina State Board of Elections, issued a statement Friday afternoon saying her office "is working quickly to establish the procedures necessary to comply with the court order between now and Election Day."

Civil Rights groups praised the ruling that comes in a the key swing state just four days before Election Day.
"The judge's order today ensures that voters improperly challenged in three North Carolina counties will be restored to the voter rolls before Election Day," said Allison Riggs, Senior Attorney for the Southern Coalition for Social Justice.

Lawyers for the civil rights group argued that boards of elections in Beaufort, Moore and Cumberland counties had canceled thousands of voter registrations after a small number of individuals challenged the registration of approximately 4,500 voters based "exclusively on mass mailings that were returned as undeliverable."

They argued the "en masse" cancellation was done in violation of the National Voter Registration Act that prohibits systemic voter removal programs within 90 days of a federal election and that it disproportionately targeted African-American voters.

"The court finds that a narrowly tailored injunction is warranted to ensure that eligible voters are not deprived of their right to participate in the upcoming election due to a flawed process engaged in by the State and County Boards," Biggs wrote.

One plaintiff, James Edward Arthur Sr., said that he had planned to vote but recently learned that his voter registration was canceled, "as a result of a third-party challenge brought under North Carolina's voter challenge statute." Grace Bell Hardison, a 100-year-old African-American woman living in Beaufort County is another plaintiff. In court papers the NAACP argued that she has voted in nearly every election for the last 12 years but recently learned that her registration was challenged based on an alleged change of residence -- even though she hasn't moved since 2011. Her nephew was "ultimately successful" in presenting evidence of her residence.
The NAACP alleged the purge was done after first-class mail to the voter at the address listed on the voter registration card was returned.
"In many cases, voters purged by defendants still reside at the address where they are registered to vote, or have moved within the county and remain eligible to vote there," NAACP lawyers argued. "Nonetheless, a single item of returned mail has resulted in their ultimate removal from the voter rolls."
The Justice Department had weighed in on the case, telling the judge in court briefs that if the allegations made by the plaintiffs were true "safeguards" were absent and federal law was violated.

Kimberly Westbrook Strach, executive director of the North Carolina State Board of Elections, says that the challenges at issue were not initiated with the counties, but by private individuals.

Under North Carolina law any voter in a county can challenge the eligibility of any other county voter up to 25 days before the election. The challenge can include a residency challenge.

Strach addressed the controversy in a letter sent last week to Dr. William J. Barber II, president of the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP. "A challenge validly entered will trigger a preliminary hearing, written notice to the affected voter and a full hearing on the merits before the appointed members of the county board of elections."
She said that in all the cases "county officials indicate that their respective boards of elections held preliminary hearings, notified the challenged voters by mail, and held hearings on the merits."

In the letter Strach emphasized that while the federal law prohibits a state from "conducting systematic list maintenance within 90 days of a federal election," the challenges involved in the case come from private citizens and were resolved through a "statutory process that ensures notice and an opportunity to be heard before the appropriate body within the county."

In a statement after the lawsuit was filed she said, "the statutes at issue are decades old and are common across the country and widely regarded as compatible with the National Voter Registration Act. If the plaintiffs are right, then most states are wrong."
After the hearing, and even before the opinion was released, Strach issued a statement saying that, "As the independent agency that administers elections in North Carolina, we will comply with any court order."

Mexican Citizen Sentenced To 8 Years In Prison For Voter Fraud In TX
February 9, 2017 6:52 PM By Gabriel Roxas

DALLAS (CBS11) – The family of a woman convicted of voter fraud is speaking out after a Tarrant County jury sentenced her to eight years in prison.

Prosecutors say the reason officials at the elections department in Dallas didn’t stop the voter fraud from happening is because Rosa Ortega claimed she was a citizen on her application.

Now the Tarrant County D.A.’s office is calling for those claims to be verified before handing out registration cards.

Ortega’s attorney said the mother of four will undoubtedly be deported.

“What’s going to happen to the kids? So it’s not fair,” Rosa’s uncle, Felipe Ortega said.

He points out his niece has spent almost her entire life in the U.S. Her attorney said she has a learning disability and was confused about the difference between being a citizen and a legal resident, so she thought she was allowed to vote.

“The jury didn’t believe that story. They believed that the defendant knew exactly what she was doing, and they responded accordingly,” Prosecutor Jonathan White said.

White told CBS11, when Ortega tried to register to vote in Tarrant County, she admitted she was not a citizen, so her application was rejected. When she told them she had already been voting in Dallas County, that’s when investigators started looking into her case. Defense attorney Clark Bidsall said his client’s case has been politicized and now Ortega has a difficult road ahead even after her sentence.

“Once she gets out of prison and she’s deported, does she bring her four minor children to Mexico? As a mother I think that would be a difficult choice for her,” Birdsall said.

“It’s going to be a big impact for them because now they’re going to have to go over there to visit their momma,” Felipe Ortega added.

Prosecutors said whether this case prompts elections officials to verify citizenship is an issue for the legislature. CBS11 asked Dallas elections officials to comment on the case, but they have not gotten back to us.

The jury also gave Ortega a $5,000 fine.

Sorry, Tio, it's a felony amigo.

There is no surprise that illegal aliens are voting...the surprise is she got caught.

Supposedly, Pence is going to lead an investigation which was ironically demanded by the MSM after Trump made allegation of illegal voting. It should be thorough and scientific so we don't get any "Vote fraud deniers"

QFT.

We have one whole political party, and their gov't lackeys, working to actively prevent such enforcement for a long time now. Even Prez Obama pointedly said so in a television interview that's now plastered across the internet.


The lady in the example still would've got away with it, in numerous ways, had she not blatantly confessed to authorities. Sometimes I'm unsure if even doing that is an assured investigation. Certainly depends on where it was done.

Important safety tip!

If you are a Mexican citizen, DO NOT admit to voting in US elections in or around Dallas, Texas. Los Angeles or San Francisco should be fine. :lol:

Ohio investigation found 385 non-US citizens registered to vote, 82 cast illegal ballots

By NBC4 Staff
Published: February 27, 2017, 9:19 am Updated: February 28, 2017, 9:52 am

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced an investigation has uncovered that hundreds of non-US citizens are registered to vote in the state, and dozens of them voted illegally.

According to a release from Husted, 385 people who are not citizens of the United States are registered to vote in Ohio. Out of those, 82 voted in at least one election in the last year.

Husted’s office says the 82 non-citizens who are registered to vote and cast ballots will be immediately referred to law enforcement for further investigation and possible prosecution.

“In light of the national discussion about illegal voting it is important to inform our discussions with facts. The fact is voter fraud happens, it is rare and when it happens, we hold people accountable,” Secretary Husted said.

19 of the 82 non-citizens voted in the central Ohio area. 14 of those were in Franklin County, 2 were in Delaware County and 1 each in Fairfield, Licking and Union Counties.

The 303 registered voters identified as non-citizens who have not cast a ballot will be sent letters both informing them that non-citizens are not eligible to vote and requesting that they cancel their registration. A follow-up letter will be sent to any individuals that still remain on the rolls after 30 days. Any non-citizens identified that remain on the rolls after being contacted twice will then be referred to law enforcement, according to Husted.

“I have a responsibility to preserve the integrity of Ohio’s elections system,” Secretary Husted said. “When you consider that in Ohio we have had 112 elections decided by one vote or tied in the last three years, every case of illegal voting must be taken seriously and elections officials must have every resource available to them to respond accordingly.”

Husted added that none of the cases where a non-citizen cast a ballot occurred in jurisdictions where an election was decided by one vote or tied.

It’s possible for a non-citizen to register to vote in Ohio if they lie about their status on the voter registration form.

But Husted’s office now crosses the voter registration database with information at the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

Non-citizens with legal resident status can obtain a driver’s license or a state ID at the BMV. But, in doing so, they acknowledge their non-citizen status.

Husted’s review is able to identify people who have registered to vote as citizens but obtained a driver’s license as a non-citizen.

Husted said this year’s review found more registered non-citizens than two previous reviews in 2013 and 2015. “We’re getting better at doing the search and finding this information and also in a presidential election year you’re just going to have more people voting and so you’re going to have a bigger number,” Husted said.

And Husted admits there are likely other non-citizens registered to vote in Ohio but are not in the BMV’s system.

That’s why he has appealed to Washington for access to a federal Homeland Security database…

“If we had access to that information we could prevent this in advance and we could find out what the probably bigger number is of people who are on the voter rolls or who have voted and shouldn’t be.”

821 is a FLOOR as that would only include non-citizens WITH a driver's license that matched a registration exactly.

Resgistered voters without a drivers license would not be detected with this method.

I want to see the excuses some inevitably will give for allowing foreigners to vote.

You know they will try, despite having absolutely no defense regarding the legality of such a stance. :lol:

Report: 5,500 Noncitizens Discovered on Virginia Voter Rolls
One-third illegally cast ballots in the state

BY: Joe Schoffstall
May 30, 2017 2:55 pm

A public interest law firm has discovered thousands of noncitizens were quietly removed from Virginia voter rolls and that a number of the removed individuals had been voting since the 1980s.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an Indiana-based group that litigates to protect election integrity, released a report detailing their findings on Virginia's voter rolls. The group filed numerous lawsuits and submitted a number of record requests in order to gather the information after the state had initially stonewalled their efforts.

The extensive review of voter history files across Virginia's 133 jurisdictions found that state election officials removed 5,556 noncitizen voters between 2011 and May 2017. Of the 5,556 noncitizens that were quietly removed from the rolls, 1,852 cast ballots.

PILF said that a total of 7,474 illegal ballots were cast by the noncitizens, with records of illegal voting dating as far back as the 1980s.


"Virginia's voter registration system is so flawed, noncitizens have been found voting since the 1980s and weren't caught until recently—by happenstance," Logan Churchwell, PILF's spokesman, told the Washington Free Beacon. "It's 2017—using the honor system to determine eligibility is only defended by those without a sense of outrage toward voter fraud."

Last year, PILF released a similar report that found 1,000 noncitizens that were removed from the state's voter rolls, 200 of whom had voted illegally. However, only eight Virginia locales originally complied with the group's records requests at the time.

Some officials told PILF that political appointees close to Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe had given guidance that prohibited the disclosure of illegal voters to the group, citing the federal Driver's Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) as reason why they could not turn the information over, PILF said.

"At the instruction of Governor McAuliffe's political appointees, local election officials spent countless resources to prevent this information from spilling into the open," J. Christian Adams, president and general counsel of PILF, said of state's response to the records requests.

PILF sued Chesterfield County and the City of Manassas for voter information. A judge later ruled that DPPA was not justification for election records to be concealed. At this point, jurisdictions began turning documents over to PILF, who had partnered with the Virginia Voters Alliance on the study.

"Virginia hid critical information that would have improved election integrity while a political operative-turned-governor vetoed numerous proposals that would've prevented alien registration and voting," Adams said. "From NoVa to Norfolk and all urban and rural points in between, alien voters are casting ballots with practically no legal consequences in response."

The Virginia Department of Elections did not return a request for comment on the report by press time.

UPDATE 3:25 P.M.:

Following publication, Commissioner Cortes issued the following statement to the Free Beacon:

The Department of Elections (ELECT) has one of the premier list maintenance programs in the country, including routine removal of deceased individuals, people with felony convictions, and individuals who self-identify as non-citizens. As the PILF report shows, Virginia election officials have been and are continuing to promptly remove individuals who self-identify as non-citizens from the statewide voter registration list in accordance with federal and state law.


Commissioner Cortes is a slimy weasel.
Commissioner Cortes only seems concerned with removing those who "self identify" as not being eligible to vote. Its pretty evident that the potential number of non-citizens who are voting is greater than those that 'self identify'.

‘It Undermines Integrity Of Elections’: Glitch Allows Non-U.S. Citizens In Pa. To Vote

September 20, 2017 4:06 PM By Pat Loeb

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt says a glitch in the state’s “motor-voter” process has allowed non-U.S. citizens to register to vote, even though he thinks they did so accidentally.

The glitch has had no impact on elections, as the number of people mistakenly registered was small, but Schmidt thinks that statewide there could be many more and he wants the state to review registrations. He also wants it to cross check all active voter registration records against all current PennDOT records containing INS Indicators.

Secretary of State Pedro Cortes issued a statement saying PennDOT is changing its system to prevent the problem in the future and has already made improvements. He did not address reviewing and cross checking registrations statewide. A spokeswoman for Cortes said they are conducting their own review.

Voting advocates say Schmidt’s concern is misplaced and they worry more about voter suppression, with a Trump administration panel looking for fraud even where there is no evidence of any.

Schmidt hastens to say he does not consider the non-citizen registrations as fraud.

“Voter fraud implies intent,” says Schmidt. “Voting irregularity is a vote that was not a legitimate vote but it’s not cast with the intention to commit fraud.”

Schmidt says 220 non-citizens have registered in the last 12 years and 90 of them actually voted.

He found three-quarters of them signed up when they got their driver’s license. He believes that’s because — even though they told PennDOT they were non-citizens — the automatic screens used during the process asked if they also wanted to register to vote. Non-citizens, living here legally, are allowed to drive but not vote, but Schmidt thinks they didn’t realize that.

“Maybe they think it’s a sign of their civic participation and then find out down the line they’re not eligible to vote and they contact our office and ask that their registration be cancelled,” he says.

He says there may be many more who didn’t contact the office.

David Thornburgh, president and CEO of the election watchdog, The Committee of Seventy, doubts that.

“I can’t believe this would be the tip of the iceberg,” he says. “I don’t understand why this surfaces right now. This is a miniscule number, about .02 percent of all the city’s registered voters. I don’t get it.”

Thornburgh points to a study by the non-partisan Keystone Votes that found 17,000 registrations in Philadelphia were processed late, making the potential disenfranchisement of legitimate voters a bigger problem than the accidental registering of non-citizens.

But Schmidt says he has another concern.

“It undermines the integrity of elections and it undermines their own chances of becoming citizens,” Schmidt says. “That’s very unfair, as well.”

Cortes agrees and says the state was taking action even before it heard from Schmidt. Here is his statement:

“In August 2016, the department changed the order and simplified the language of the Motor Voter screens. After selecting a language, applicants are immediately asked if they are U.S. citizens. If the answer is no, the process stops and no further Motor Voter questions are presented to the PennDOT customer.

“At the same time, we increased the number of languages offered with Motor Voter screens from only English and Spanish to an additional 12 options. The enhancement is in place at 89 of 97 PennDOT locations and the rollout will be complete in a few weeks. This will greatly reduce the chances of PennDOT’s non-citizen customers inadvertently clicking through the screen.

“Additionally, the department is changing the Motor Voter system so non-citizens will not even see the Motor Voter screens. We are also placing additional notices to inform all applicants of laws regarding voter registration.

“The Department of State, the Department of Transportation and Pennsylvania’s county election professionals are committed to protecting the rights of eligible citizens to vote. The freedom we cherish was built on this right and generations of Americans have fought to remove unfair barriers to this right.”
Pat Loeb



Almost 41% of the 220 they identified as having registered when they were not citizens actually voted in elections.

How many more people were there in Pennsylvania that illegally registered?????
