DOI undercover agents showed up at 63 polling places last fall and pretended to be voters who should have been turned away by election officials; the agents assumed the names of individuals who had died or moved out of town, or who were sitting in jail. In 61 instances, or 97 percent of the time, the testers were allowed to vote. Those who did vote cast only a write-in vote for a “John Test” so as to not affect the outcome of any contest. DOI published its findings two weeks ago in a searing 70-page report accusing the city’s Board of Elections of incompetence, waste, nepotism, and lax procedures.

    The Board of Elections, which has a $750 million annual budget and a work force of 350 people, reacted in classic bureaucratic fashion, which prompted one city paper to deride it as “a 21st-century survivor of Boss Tweed–style politics.” The Board approved a resolution referring the DOI’s investigators for prosecution. It also asked the state’s attorney general to determine whether DOI had violated the civil rights of voters who had moved or are felons, and it sent a letter of complaint to Mayor Bill de Blasio. Normally, I wouldn’t think de Blasio would give the BOE the time of day, but New York’s new mayor has long been a close ally of former leaders of ACORN, the now-disgraced “community organizing” group that saw its employees convicted of voter-registration fraud all over the country during and after the 2008 election."

    Voter Fraud: We

    "Florida election officials announced that by cross-referencing voter rolls with driver's licenses and other materials, they believed 2,600 registered voters were in fact not U.S. citizens, and that they were looking into the records of another 180,000 registered voters. "

    Is Voter Fraud a Real Problem?

    "It's one thing to lose badly to the other guy, but it's another to get absolutely no votes. None.

    That's what happened to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 59 Philadelphia voting divisions, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer."

    This one is a possible reason for the low reported numbers...

    "RALEIGH, N.C. -
    One of the more compelling arguments for voter identification is the suppression of voter fraud. But for North Carolina, the number of cases of voter fraud reported by the state Board of Elections is minimal.

    In 2012, nearly 7 million ballots were cast in the general and two primary elections. Of those 6,947,317 ballots, the state Board of Elections said 121 alleged cases of voter fraud were referred to the appropriate district attorney's office.

    That means of the nearly 7 million votes cast, voter fraud accounted for 0.00174 percent of the ballots.

    Looking back at the 2010 election cycle -- which was not a presidential year -- 3.79 million ballots were cast and only 28 cases of voter fraud were turned over to the appropriate DA's office. So in 2010, voter fraud accounted for 0.000738 percent of ballots cast.

    The state Board of Elections acknowledges that far more cases of voter fraud are reported each voting cycle. But the majority of those cases are deemed unfounded and never referred to the DA's office."

    How much evidence do you need, and from how many different places?

    This quote sums it up from my last link...

    "By definition, those who perpetrate [voter fraud] seek to go undetected, and it is a circular argument to say that there is no need for better law enforcement because our current lax enforcement hasn’t caught many violators."

    Are you kidding me? With elections decided on razor slim margins today, even small instances of fraud can turn elections...See Frankin.

    The system allowed someone to commit fraud. It wasn't discovered until the "real" voter wasn't allowed to vote. His ballot ended up being provisional, and the fraudulent vote is going to count.

    Got to bury your head pretty far up something to not have read those words in the article you claimed you were reporting from.

    No credibility, nothing but excuses, and oh so expected.

    I'm not a Republican, so I can't say - but as a conservative I neither think most black people take their orders from Al Sharpton nor do I think most Tea Party supporters idolize Glen Beck. Like most sane, sentient individuals, we take in and compute internally what we see and hear and make our own decisions.

    And just to be clear, just because Al Sharpton and Glen Beck, to name two, are complete idiots doesn't mean that they don't occasionally say something well worth supporting. I've actually found myself agreeing with something Al's said in the past and being shocked by it, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. As the old saying goes, "even a broken clock is right twice a day".

    Becauset they hope it keeps the numbers down.

    This from Paul Weyrich - one of the leaders of the New Right speaking about keeping the vote down because it favors the right

    "I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of the people. They never have been from the beginning of our country and they are not now. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down.

    No, I don't...As many libs know the GOP has a close relationship with religion, and many feel that Sunday is a day for family, God, and rest...NOT political struggle.

    But, any scapegoat will do eh?

    So when Democrats claim there is no voter fraud does that make them ignorant or liars? Perhaps 'abysmally uninformed" would be the most polite way to describe their claims that there is no election fraud going on.

    So how many cases of voter fraud convictions do we have over the last 14 years or so? I did not see that in your post and that is the key component.
