THE DAILY SIGNAL – 8 Instances of Voter Fraud in 2016, and It’s Not Even Election Day Yet:  In just the last week, prosecutors pursued three voter fraud-related charges in three major battleground states—Florida, Iowa, and Virginia.  Numerous other election irregularities such as voting beyond the grave, voting more than once, voting without citizenship, and registrations by nonexistent people have occurred throughout 2016. While some cases have been prosecuted, others were discovered through various news reports.  Here’s a sampling of election irregularities that have already taken place well in advance of Nov. 8.

PLANET FREE WILL – Bombshell New Evidence Reveals Likely Link Between Voting Machines And Clinton Foundation:   Could these connections be enough to implicate the Clinton Foundation in the alleged early vote rigging in Texas?    As usual, the internet has come through as the ultimate watchdog while the supposed safeguards of our democracy have failed.  A Gab user by the name “Special Prosecutor Will Logan” has found some stunning information.   Note: as Gab is a members only site, you’ll have to join to see his actual posts, but we included all pertinent information in the article.

UNION WATCH – Election Integrity and the Power of Unions:  During the 2004 Presidential election there were allegations of voter fraud; the 2000 Presidential election was alleged to have been “stolen” by the Republicans. If you go further back in history, you can point to evidence the Democratic machine in Chicago manipulated election results to throw the 1960 Presidential election victory to Kennedy. A close reading of American history would reveal election fraud as a challenge to our democracy from the very beginning, and in every decade since then. It’s no surprise that we’re discussing it again.

What is a surprise is the opportunities for voter fraud, in this age of biometric identification technology and total information awareness, are actually greater than ever. Using California as an example, here are some of the reasons why:

Voters are not required to present a verifiable photo identification when they vote, and if they wish, voters don’t even have to show up at the polling place, they can vote by mail. Voting by mail causes a variety of problems – first, it precludes anyone showing an identification, and second, it prolongs vote counts after the election as workers tabulate the ballots. And the greater the number of ballots requiring post-election, manual counting, the more opportunities there are for political operatives who have infiltrated our election workforce to manipulate results. And because voting by mail is done outside of the controlled environment of the voting booth at the polling place, there is even less guarantee that these ballots are not filled out by someone other than the person supposedly voting.

Editor’s Note:   This article is from the socialist organ National Public Radio and exhibits the smear campaign against Trump orchestrated by the Soros-Clinton mafia.  It is not published here for the truth of the matter but, rather, to show the extents to which socialists orchestrate jointly their efforts to deny the clear facts that are even stated in the article itself, blaming numerous cited instances of voter fraud on others.

NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO – Some Machines Are Flipping Votes, But That Doesn’t Mean They’re Rigged:  Vote flipping. The stories and conspiracy theories have begun.   In every recent election, there have been reports of voters pressing one candidate’s name on a touch-screen machine, only to have the opponent’s name light up instead.  It can be unnerving for voters and often leads to allegations that the machines have been “rigged” to favor one candidate over another.  Enter election 2016, when the word “rigged” is more politically charged than ever. In the first few days of early voting, there are already scattered reports of vote-flipping machines in North Carolina, Texas and Nevada.  The North Carolina chapter of the NAACP sent a letter to the state’s board of elections Monday after voters complained that machines had flipped votes in five counties. The group noted that, in each case, the voter was able to correct the error before the ballot was cast. But it asked the board to remove malfunctioning machines and to post signs reminding voters to check their ballots before submitting them.  The board replied that it takes the concerns seriously and advised voters to double-check their ballots. It said the machines were tested before the election and are recalibrated each day before voting begins. And, if needed, problem machines would be taken out of service.

ZERO HEDGE –  Indiana Voter Database “Riddled With Errors” Including 1,000s Of Dead Voters And Duplicate Registrations:     For years the political elites, backed by funding from George Soros, have fought common sense voter ID laws as blatant attempts of racist right wingers to suppress the votes of minority and low-income citizens.  These same people tirelessly argue that there is no evidence of voter fraud despite the mountain of facts that keeps piling up the contrary.  The latest evidence comes from Indiana, where CBS points out that the state’s voter registration database, like many others around the country, are “riddled with errors” including 1,000s of duplicate registrations and dead voters.   A data analysis firm hired by a voter registration group said on Tuesday that Indiana’s voter database is riddled with errors, including thousands of people over the age of 110 who would likely be deceased but are still on the registration list.   TargetSmart conducted a review of the state voter file maintained by Republican Secretary of State Connie Lawson’s office on behalf of Patriot Majority, a voter registration group with deep ties to the Democratic Party that says it was trying to register black voters in Indiana. Patriot Majority has been the focal point of a state police probe of possible voter fraud. The group said the discovery of numerous problems in the voter database does not necessarily mean this was the result of fraud.   TargetSmart said it also found 837,000 voters with out-of-date addresses when compared to the United States Postal Service address database, or roughly one-in-five of all Indiana registered voters.

CBS News:  CBS4 Investigation Finds People Voting Twice – An ongoing CBS4 voter fraud investigation has uncovered a dozen cases where Coloradans are suspected of voting twice. Previous CBS4 Investigations revealed ballots cast in the names of Coloradans who had been dead for months– sometimes years- before votes were cast in their names.  In six of the new cases, voting records show the same people voting twice in Colorado elections. In another six cases, people are suspected of voting in Colorado and another state during the same election cycle.   Lincoln Wilson, a registered Republican from Hale, in Northeast Colorado, is accused of voting in both Colorado and Kansas in 2010, 2012 and again in 2014. Wilson told CBS4 he voted in both states, but only “voted on local issues” and “didn’t vote twice for President.”  Wilson is one of five Coloradans now charged by the State of Kansas for voting in both states.

FRONT PAGE MAGAZINE – Oh, No, Virginia: There Is No Such Thing As Voter Fraud: Democrats tell us all the time: there is no such thing as voter fraud. Show them the evidence – such as this report from the Public Interest Legal Foundation that found more than 1,000 non-citizens registered to vote in Virginia -– and they reply, well that is just anecdotal.  And if Project Veritas captures the Democrat Commissioner on the New York City Board of Elections admitting in an undercover video that Democrats “bus people around to vote” all the time, why, that’s just gonzo journalism by a “convicted felon.”  Rest assured, Virginia: our elections are secure. There is no organized voter fraud, and to suggest otherwise – as Donald Trump did last week – is just downright un-American. How do we know this? Because President Obama just told us so.   Of course, when Obama first ran for President in 2008, he expressed concern that hackers could gain access to electronic voting machines to alter the results, and told supporters he wanted to set up a non-partisan election integrity division at the Justice Department “that is serious about investigating cases of vote fraud.”  That division has been extremely active over the past eight years investigating – sorry. Obama never established the voter integrity division at DoJ. Instead, he had his attorney general quash the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of Top Secret classified information on her private email server.

ZERO HEDGE – New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through “Oversamples”:  Earlier this morning we wrote about the obvious sampling bias in the latest ABC / Washington Post poll that showed a 12-point national advantage for Hillary. 

Like many of the recent polls from Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, this latest poll included a 9-point sampling bias toward registered democrats

“METHODOLOGY – This ABC News poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 20-22, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 874 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats – Republicans – Independents.”

Of course, while democrats may enjoy a slight registration advantage of a couple of points, it is nowhere near the 9 points reflected in this latest poll. 

Meanwhile, we also pointed out that with huge variances in preference across demographics one can easily “rig” a poll by over indexing to one group vs. another.  As a quick example, the ABC / WaPo poll found that Hillary enjoys a 79-point advantage over Trump with black voters.  Therefore, even a small “oversample” of black voters of 5% could swing the overall poll by 3 full points.  Moreover, the pollsters don’t provide data on the demographic mix of their polls which makes it impossible to “fact check” the bias…convenient.

THE LOS ANGELES TIMES – Indiana State Police chief reports cases of voter fraud:  Indiana’s top cop suggested Friday that investigators had uncovered several instances of voter fraud in the state, an allegation that adds fuel to a fiery debate over whether elections are “rigged” and subject to abuse.   Indiana State Police Supt. Douglas Carter said in a local TV interview that Gov. Mike Pence “absolutely did not misspeak” this week when he warned supporters of potential voter fraud during a campaign stop in Nevada. Carter said he believed there was voter fraud in “every state,” including Indiana.   Carter refused to provide details about how many instances of voter fraud police have found, or the exact nature of the fraud — whether investigators found, for example, cases of people registering to vote multiple times or whether those ineligible to vote tried to register.   A state police spokesman, Capt. David Bursten, also declined to share details, saying that “the superintendent’s interview speaks for itself.”   The comments came amid an ongoing state investigation into potential voter fraud in 56 of Indiana’s 96 counties, which isn’t likely to be resolved before election day, Nov. 8.

The Gateway Pundit –  WIKILEAKS: Podesta Says It’s OK for Illegals to Vote With Driver’s License….:  In the latest Wikileaks Podesta documents John Podesta actually says it is OK for illegals to vote if they have a driver’s license.

Trump says the system is rigged.

Then we see this email the next day.

John Podesta: I think Teddy’s idea scratches the itch, is pretty safe and uncomplicated.  On the picture ID, the one thing I have thought of in that space is that if you show up on Election Day with a drivers license with a picture, attest that you are a citizen, you have a right to vote in Federal elections.

Law Newz – Indiana Investigating Possible Voter Fraud After Thousands of Names Changed:  The Indiana State police are investigating after the Indiana Secretary of State discovered that thousands of dates of birth and names were changed on voter registrations. This comes as Donald Trump has doubled down his rhetoric that the election is “rigged against” him.  “We ran a report in the Statewide Voter Registration System and found thousands of dates of births and first names were changed,” said Secretary of State Connie Lawson in a press release. “These records were changed on paper forms, at the BMV and online. At this time, my office is not sure why these records were changed, but we have evaluated the Statewide Voter Registration System and have found no indication it has been compromised. We believe this may be a case of voter fraud and have turned our findings over to the State Police, who are currently conducting an investigation into alleged voter fraud.”  Lawson further explained that when voters go to find their registration online, they are required to put in their name, county, and date of birth. If the DOB or name is wrong, they won’t be able to find their registration, which will cause them to believe they are no longer registered in the upcoming election.

THE DAILY SIGNAL – Here Are 3 New Cases of Voter Fraud. Governments Must Ensure Vote Integrity as Election Day Looms:  As Election Day looms large, Americans are as divided as ever on the future direction of the country and many of our most pressing issues.  One issue that ought to unite the country, however, is the need for election integrity. After all, it is through the ballot box that voters will select our local, state, and federal leaders. It is imperative that the vote accurately reflects the will of our citizens.  Many on the left, however, are unconcerned with the protection of each individual’s vote. They quickly dismiss voter fraud as a myth meant to justify voter suppression. Perhaps progressives are so quick to kill the debate because they know that the facts are not on their side.  Indeed, voter fraud is a very real and ongoing threat to the integrity of the political process, and The Heritage Foundation’s “Does Your Vote Count” project tracks this “nonexistent” problem. Today, we are adding 16 new confirmed convictions for voter fraud to our voter fraud database. That brings the count to over 430 criminal convictions for election fraud.

INQUISITR  –  U.S. FACES A ‘PERFECT STORM’ OF POSSIBLE ELECTION FRAUD, SAYS PROF. JOHN BANZHAF:  … one of the scariest revelations of the FBI report on the recent hacking of election systems in two states shows that the hackers did not require much sophistication or secret hacker knowhow. On the contrary, notes Banzhaf, the intruders used hacking tools widely available and easily obtained from the internet. Thus, our vulnerability is not limited to a group of master hackers or foreign countries with vast resources, he notes. The FBI shows how and why we could be hacked by teens from many countries.   The second element of the perfect storm into which our presidential election may be heading is that we use the Electoral College rather than have a direct election for the president.

New York Post – Elections official caught on video blasting de Blasio’s ID program:    The Manhattan Democratic representative on the city’s Board of Elections was caught on a secret video slamming Mayor Bill de Blasio’s municipal ID program as contributing to “all kinds of fraud” — including at the polls.  “He gave out ID cards, de Blasio. That’s in lieu of a driver’s license, but you can use it for anything,” Commissioner Alan Schulkin said in the undercover video recorded by a muckraker for conservative nonprofit Project Veritas.   “But they didn’t vet people to see who they really are. Anybody can go in there and say, ‘I am Joe Smith, I want an ID card,’ ” he said in the bombshell tape.   “It’s absurd. There is a lot of fraud. Not just voter fraud, all kinds of fraud . . . This is why I get more conservative as I get older.”   Schulkin didn’t hold back to the undercover journalist, who identified herself as a political consultant at a United Federation of Teachers holiday party on Dec. 16.   Not realizing he was being recorded, he broke with his own party’s position that voter ID requirements hurt the poor and minorities.   Schulkin said he backed the IDs to prevent rampant fraud.

TownHall – Massive Voter Fraud Sweep Under Way By Texas AG:     At this hour, a sizable number of agents from the office of the Texas Attorney General is on the ground in Tarrant County, going door-to-door investigating allegations of vote harvesting. Residents report seeing agents in several Fort Worth neighborhoods. One source close to the investigation calls the allegations “serious and substantial…it is believed to be the largest case of voter fraud the AG’s office has ever investigated and involves multiple election cycles”.   The investigation has been underway for over a year but only now is the office conducting a sweep of those affected and those believed to be involved.

PoliZette Politics Explainerd –  Illegal Voters Uncovered in Philly Are ‘Tip of the Iceberg’:    Law firm uncovers illegal immigrants, convicted felons on rolls — and some have voted in crucial swing state.   At least 86 non-citizens have been registered voters in Philadelphia since 2013, and almost half — 40 — even voted in at least one recent election, according to a legal group that sued to get voter registration records.   Joseph Vanderhulst, an attorney with the Public Interest Legal Foundation, noted Philadelphia knows about those 86 illegal voters only because officials received specific requests — in almost every case from the voters themselves — to remove the names from the rolls. He said there is no way to know how many non-citizens might be registered to vote in Philadelphia, let alone in the rest of politically crucial Pennsylvania.

Zero Hedge – Meet The Young Virginia Democrat That Registered 19 Dead People To Vote In Virginia:   Just yesterday we wrote about an FBI investigation into potential voter fraud in the critical swing state of Virginia after it was revealed that 19 dead people had recently been re-registered to vote (see “FBI Investigating More Dead People Voting In The Key Swing State Of Virginia”).  While the Washington Post caught wind of the investigation, it was not known who was behind the operation…until now.    Meet, Andrew Spieles, a student at James Madison University, and apparently “Lead Organizer” for Harrisonburg VOTES.  According to the Daily News-Record, Spieles confessed to re-registering 19 deceased Virginians to vote in the 2016 election cycle.

United Press International – Report: Up to 10 states have experienced election-related hacking:     WASHINGTON, Sept. 29 (UPI) As many as 10 state election databases have been hacked, not only the two previously reported in Illinois and Arizona, according to a report by CBS News.   The hacks come as officials in the Justice Department and Homeland Security warn state and local officials of the threat posed by hackers seeking access to the nation’s election database.   The CBS report did not identify exactly how many states have been hacked, nor which ones. But according to multiple anonymous national security officials, as many as 10 have experienced some sort of hack.   So far the two known data breaches affected voter registration information and not vote-tallying software. In Arizona, malware was found installed in voter registration data. In Illinois, thousands of voters’ registration information was accessed, though most of it — names, addresses and telephone numbers — is public information accessible through a public records request.

International Business Time – Voter Registration Hacking? FBI Says Attempts Made On More Than A Dozen States:  FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday hackers have attempted to infiltrate voter registration sites in more than a dozen states, and officials suspect Russia is behind the intrusions.  Comey told the House Judiciary Committee the FBI has detected an unspecified number of “scanning activities, a potential intrusion activities as well as some attempted intrusions at voter database registrations beyond those we knew about in July and August,” CNN reported.  During the summer it had been reported hackers attempted to break into the voter registration databases in Arizona and Illinois.

Richmond Times-Dispatch  –  Investigation launched after dead people are registered to vote in Harrisonburg:  Harrisonburg officials and the FBI are investigating allegations of voter registration fraud after officials say almost 20 voter applications were turned in under the names of dead people.   Harrisonburg Registrar Debbie Logan said Thursday that investigators have found from 18 to 20 potentially fraudulent registrations. The Rockingham County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office confirmed Thursday that an investigation is underway, but offered no additional details on the case.

ZERO HEDGE:  FBI Investigating More Dead People Voting In The Key Swing State Of Virginia.   For years the political elites, backed by funding from George Soros, have fought common sense voter ID laws as blatant attempts of racist right wingers to suppress the votes of minority and low-income citizens.  These same people tirelessly argue that there is no evidence of voter fraud despite the mountain of facts that keeps piling up the contrary.  In fact, per the National Review, United States District Judge Lynn Adelman of Wisconsin, in response to a voter ID complaint in that state, recently claimed that “virtually no voter impersonation occurs” in Wisconsin and that “no evidence suggests that voter-impersonation fraud will become a problem at any time in the foreseeable future.”

Washington Times:  ANALYSIS/OPINION:     It’s easy to feel lost in a nation of 320 million. But it’s the strength and glory of the American way that the least among us has a say, no smaller and no bigger than anyone else, with a vote on Election Day. The stakes for charting the future have rarely been higher, as the face-off between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Monday night demonstrated. Vote fraud dilutes the value of the ballots cast by the eligible, and that should disturb and anger us all. If elections aren’t fair, the democratic process is a sham.
