More evidence that North Carolina, like other states, is right to be concerned about voter fraud, and that investigators can find allegedly-“nonexistent” fraud by simply looking:

A State Board of Elections official said that investigators have referred 10 cases to prosecutors involving potential “serial double-voters” who appear to have cast ballots in two states during both the 2012 and 2014 general elections.

The referrals came from an investigations team assembled in March by the board.  The team examined results of a cross-checking of voter records among 28 states, including North Carolina. Double voting is a federal and state crime…

Additional criminal referrals to prosecutors are expected as investigators widen their nets to capture one-time double voters.

More voter fraud that the anti-integrity crowd claims is “nonexistent:”

“An Ypsilanti man is facing six months’ probation after pleading guilty to voter fraud.  Adam Kane Easlick, 35, pleaded guilty in Tuscola County Circuit after facing a felony charge of voting in a place where he was not a resident…

“Easlick, whose permanent residence is in Ypsilanti, illegally voted in the 2012 presidential election in Tuscola County after registering at a post office. He was registered at multiple addresses outside of Ypsilanti.”

What plaintiffs want are “the practices their political allies prefer” 

The federal trial over North Carolina’s election reform law has ended. “But U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder’s decision won’t come down anytime soon. It could be at least a month before he renders a ruling on whether House Bill 589 violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and the 14th and 15th amendments of the U.S. Constitution.”

Schroeder “peppered the plaintiffs’ attorneys with questions about evidence of burden. He pushed plaintiffs’ attorneys to distinguish between actual burdens as opposed to states’ attorneys assertion that early voting and other voting practices that were curtailed or eliminated constituted merely conveniences that were taken away…”

“Thomas Farr, one of the state’s attorneys, said in closing arguments that the plaintiffs had not presented any evidence that the law is racially discriminatory. He said North Carolina legislators have the authority to enact changes to election law” and have “no obligation to offer justification for House Bill 589… Farr argued that the law put North Carolina in the mainstream with the rest of the country.”
