VOTE TAMPERING, LOCAL AND NATIONWIDE

January 23, 2019

 

Here is the reason the Democratic party is refusing to stop illegal immigration. It is because they want individuals who are not citizens or even people that do not exist to vote in federal elections. A recent article pointed out voting patterns in California during the 2018 November elections. Look at what they did and the changes in voting procedure that they instituted in California.

In the November 2018 election Republican candidates went to bed on election night in November with leads in most of their competitive House races, only to lose in the ensuing weeks of vote counting. In Orange County, Young Kim was poised to become the first Korean-American woman in Congress, with a sizable lead on Election Day over her Democratic opponent. She lost by three percentage points. Republican Rep. Mimi Walters’s 6,074-vote lead on Nov. 6 turned into an 11,866-vote loss to Democrat Katie Porter.

How did this happen?

The project started in 2015 when California became the second state after Oregon to move to automatic voter registration.

Can’t be bothered to register? California does it for you, automatically adding to its rolls any person who has any interaction with its Department of Motor Vehicles. The system is already a threat to ballot integrity, with the DMV acknowledging in September it had incorrectly registered 23,000 voters.

In 2016 California passed the Voter’s Choice Act, which allows counties to mail every voter a ballot. Lots of Californians use mail voting, though previously they had to request it. Now ballots arrive automatically, whether voters want one or not. Thirteen million California voters received ballots in the mail last year, compared to about nine million in 2014.

The biggest score for Democrats is a separate 2016 California law pushed heavily by unions that legalized what’s known as ballot harvesting. This allows any person—union activists, canvassers, community organizers, campaign staff—to show up at homes and collect mail ballots on behalf of voters.

California law also allows counting mail ballots postmarked or delivered on Election Day, as well as same-day registration and liberal use of provisional ballots. This year the Democratic vote totals piled up long after the polls closed. Fred Whitaker, chairman of the Orange County GOP, has estimated that an extraordinary 250,000 mail-votes were dropped off on Election Day thanks to harvesting.

This creates opportunities for harvesters to “help” voters complete their ballots, or even pay to finish them, and it’s easy for the unscrupulous to lose ballots they think may go for the wrong candidate. Therefore ballot harvesting is illegal in many states, or at least limited to drop-offs by family members.

Nationally Democrats want states to allow same-day and online voter registration. They want looser rules on provisional ballots, requires every state to provide two weeks of early voting, prohibits restrictions on mail voting, and limits states’ ability to remove voters from rolls.

All this is an affront to the American tradition of letting states set their own election rules. Few states have automatic registration, on the principle that voting is voluntary.

Here is what the law is in Tennessee.

TN does not have automatic voter registration. One must register 30 days before Election Day. This enables officials to verify the information provided such as SS#, felon? Address, etc. First-time Tennessee voters must provide proof of citizenship, either a birth certificate or naturalization papers even if they have been registered in another state.

 

DMV provides the opportunity for those applying for a driver’s license to request registration, however, a form must be filled out and mailed to officials for verification, just like any other kind of registration.

 

To obtain an absentee ballot in Tennessee, one must be a registered voter in the district for which a ballot is requested. The request for an absentee ballot is checked against the registration lists, if the requester is registered, a ballot is mailed with a unique number on the return envelope. If that unique number is not there, altered, etc. when the ballot is returned, (all are verified) the ballot is not opened and further investigation is undertaken. Absentee ballots must arrive by the close of business on Election Day and must arrive by public carrier: USPS, Fed Ex etc.

 

In Tennessee, Provisional Ballots are provided if the person cannot be verified in the system; or does not show a Federal/TN state government photo ID. They are given 2 days to return with that photo ID (if that was the problem). Research is done If they are not in the system and they insist they registered. Some may have registered through the state and the State failed to notify the local officials. Research will let officials know – if it is found that they did timely register, their provisional ballot is counted. Otherwise, without verification that they did indeed register as they claim but do not have that photo ID, that ballot is never opened and kept in a separate holding place for 24 months. A few years back, some people would demand a provisional ballot thinking officials would not know if they were registered, that doesn’t happen as often now because they know officials verify information.

 

There is on-line registration, if that person has a TN driver’s license with signature, however, they still must vote in person the first time and show that photo ID to officials. Driver’s licenses now have a unique code on the back.

 

Tennessee does have early voting. It begins 20 days before ED and ends 5 days before ED for a total of 14 early voting days. That helps tremendously with personnel and voters. The requirements are the same for early voting or Election Day voting except on ED one can only vote in one’s precinct.

 

Now here is what happened locally last November 2018 in the election.

 

TN Black Voter Project registered thousands of voters in Shelby County and turned in 10,000 applications on the very last day of registration in Shelby County.

Since 84% of qualified voters in Shelby County are already registered, an immediate question is who those people on all those applications were! Some were felons and some were already registered, and a lot appeared to be fiction.

 

Black Voter Project (BVP) deliberately waited to turn those last registrations to cause problems for the Shelby County Election Commission. Those applications had to be processed and researched. The staff and all temps available were tied up in that process with all-hands-on-deck, three shifts per day and weekends to try to complete the process before election day.

 

Required information on many of applications was missing. Duplicate registrations were turned in for the same person with one digit different in a SS# or street address or no-such street existed etc. The local, judge Joedae Jenkins ordered that those registrants could machine vote. Attorneys appealed to state court and the ruling was overturned. Anyone with missing  could “repair” the application – however, only a handful of people did that and none showed up to try to vote on election day.

 

When addresses were on the registrations, verification letters were sent to the Black Voter Project applicants or telephoned when a phone number was provided to try to obtain missing info.  A vast number of mailed inquiry letters were returned by the PO as undeliverable and many telephone numbers were not valid. More than three letter boxes overflowed with those returned letters. It cost the commission time and money to send those letters and make those calls to non-existing people.

Turns out BVD paid $90/day for workers to register voters, but they only required 15 applications to earn the money.  Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating but no report so far on results. BVP also did something similar in Knox county and Davidson county, but not on the scale they did here. A good question is who financed that operation? What do you think? I would like your opinion on the local and national voting situation for 2020 and its connection with open borders
