The North Carolina Board of Elections uncovered some alarming evidence of “voter error and fraud” in the 2012 election. I think using the term “error” is a bit generous. How does one vote in two different states by mistake?
Initial findings from the Board presented to the Joint Legislative Elections Oversight Committee today show:
- 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
- 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
- 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.
These findings only take into account data from the 28 states who participated in the 2014 Interstate Crosscheck, leaving out potential voter error and fraud in the 22 states that do not participate in the consortium.
Additionally, during an audit of death records from the Department of Health and Human Services, the Board discovered:
- 50,000 new death records that had not previously been provided to the State Board of Elections.
- 13,416 deceased voters on the voter rolls in October 2013.
- 81 deceased voters that had voter activity after they died. (Read More)
Yet the Democrats tell us that there is no voter fraud anywhere, even when they celebrate a woman convicted of voter fraud.
I don’t know if voter ID would prevent someone from voting in two different states, but it should certainly keep the deceased from voting.
