One person, multiple votes? Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson exposes how lax voter roll maintenance increases the opportunity for voter fraud, making it easy for people to be registered and illegally vote in more than one state.

Attkisson asks at the end of the report if people could be registered in not just two but three states and cast “multiple multiple votes.” Just-convicted multi-state triple voter Pasco Parker says yes, they can.

This is a big deal and comes about from the work of the Voter Integrity Project in North Carolina.

“The first felon convicted under the VIP’s “FLANC” project, Pasco Parker, yesterday, received the maximum sentence from a “disgusted” Judge Robert Martelle, after Parker admitted to voting in three states during the same November 2012 federal election.”

Capture

Parker voted in Florida, North Carolina and Tennessee, all in the 2012 Presidential election.

So where are the federal charges?  Normally when a perp gets a slap on the wrist without jail time, the federal government tends to look at the case.  But this Justice Department routinely ignores federal election felonies, particularly felonies which the Justice Department may have made worse by failing to enforce Section 8 of the NVRA.

North Carolina’s voter rolls are getting cleaner every day thanks to TTV research

Remember in early 2012 when Pew Research reported that millions of voter registrations across the country were plagued with errors? This week, True the Vote’s advanced research team had overwhelming success in facilitating the removal of more than a thousand duplicate voter registrations in a handful of North Carolina counties. Wake and Union Counties notified TTV that 90% of the potential duplicate voter registrations we flagged were indeed true matches. To date, Wake, Guilford and Union Counties have confirmed that roughly 1,100 duplicate voters have been merged or purged from the rolls. If you have the skills necessary to crunch large amounts of data, we’d love your help. Check out the TTV Knowledge Network to get started.

Legislation on the Move

Florida

Voter Registration bill HB 647 was filed. This bill provides exemption from public records requirements for specified information regarding voter or voter registration applicant.

Absentee Voting bill SB 184 is scheduled to be heard this week by the Senate Appropriations committee. A provision in this bill creates a task force to study military and overseas voting, including the development and implementation of an online voting system.

New Jersey

Omnibus bill A 4613 was vetoed and the "absolute veto" was received in the Assembly. This bill would have authorized “The Democracy Act” to establish online voter registration, automatic voter registration, and allowed for the pre-registration of 17-year-olds.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WJCL) -- Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp announced Wednesday that his office is increasing its presence in Savannah leading up to the December 1 municipal election runoff. After receiving multiple complaints regarding the conduct of elections in Savannah on November 3, the Secretary of State’s office is taking every precaution to ensure each voter has their ballot properly cast and counted on December 1.

“As Georgia’s chief elections official, I want to ensure every voter gets their opportunity to vote in a secure, accessible, and fair election on December 1,” said Kemp on Wednesday. “My office will have boots on the ground during early voting and on Election Day.”

Kemp explained that the office’s increased presence will allow investigators to deploy immediately to any location with alleged election code violations. Secretary of State Investigators will be monitoring early voting sites, as well as Election Day precincts and the tabulation process. By also adding more eyes to the process, Kemp notes that will ensure voters’ confidence in the process.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

One year ago, former Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon reported to a federal prison in West Virginia. Soon he could be back in Charlotte – temporarily – to face state voter fraud charges.

Sources told Channel 9 that local prosecutors are trying to make arrangement with federal prison authorities to have Cannon brought to Charlotte within the next few months. 

Cannon is accused of voting in the November 2014 election after his conviction on federal bribery charges had taken his voting rights away.

How many cases of voter fraud cease to exist simply because prosecutors don’t consider them a priority or don’t have resources to pursue them?

A Missouri woman who records show voted twice in an April election still hasn’t been charged, and may not be:

“Greene County Prosecutor Dan Patterson said his office is continuing to review the case but it has taken a back seat to others because the suspect doesn’t pose a threat to the community… Patterson said he expects his office will make a decision on whether or not to prosecute the woman in the coming weeks.”

"A public admission by New Mexico’s newest state legislator that she committed voter fraud, casting ballots before she became a naturalized U.S. citizen, has been referred to the district attorney in Bernalillo County.

"But the statute of limitations appears to have long since expired, so Rep. Idalia Lechuga-Tena probably can’t be prosecuted for a crime.

"In a 3-2 vote, the Bernalillo County commissioners this week appointed Lechuga-Tena to fill the vacant seat in House District 21 in southeast Albuquerque. Lechuga-Tena, a 32-year-old Democrat, received the appointment by getting the votes of Republican commissioners Wayne Johnson and Lonnie Talbert and Democrat Art De La Cruz. Two other Democrats on the commission voted against her.

"Born in Mexico, Lechuga-Tena said she became a U.S. citizen in 2007. But she said she voted in a city election in Albuquerque in 2003. State records also show that she voted in the Democratic primary election in 2004."

As the clock runs out on 2015, we would love your help in stress-testing the new system before hordes of newly engaged voters come knocking in the New Year. The fact is that when a new tech tool is created, as developers we tend to get a little too close to the [TOTALLY FREE!] product. We need fresh eyes and early adopters from around the country to make sure the system is ‘running on all cylinders’. Do you see something that is not really intuitive? Discover a glitch? Notice something missing? We want to know about it. Here are three things you can do in the new Knowledge Network:

  1. Take online courses and complete quizzes. Have you ever completed some form of continuing education or taken a college course online? The TTV Knowledge Network runs on practically the same technology. Simply start a course -> complete each instructive unit -> and pass the quiz(zes) to earn a badge on your user profile. What’s this about a “user profile” you say? It’s quite easy to set up and worth a couple of minutes of your time because you’ll definitely want to…
  2. Plug into the TTV social network! It wouldn’t really be a network if you couldn’t actually network with fellow classmates would it? If you want to connect with folks in your state or start a brand new discussion, the GROUPS function is the place for you. If you can handle Facebook, you can handle the Knowledge Network’s social network functions. If you still have trouble …
  3. Ask for help or note a problem. Like many online tools you may use, the Knowledge Network comes standard with a ticketed helpdesk. Simply click HELP -> Submit a Ticket located in the top right of your screen to send up a flare.

‘Told Ya So’ Dept.: Texas Prosecutes Noncitizen for Voter Fraud

Early True the Vote supporters in Texas may recall when the group’s researchers uncovered cases of people admitting they were not citizens when filling out a voter registration form; and yet they were still allowed to vote back in 2010. We even found instances of people claiming to be both U.S. citizens and noncitizens at the same time when registering. The consequences of failing to verify if people are actually telling the truth reared its ugly head this week in north Texas. Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office publicized the arrest of a Tarrant County resident, Rosa Maria Ortega, for multiple counts of illegal voting -- a second degree felony. Ortega, a Mexican national, is accused of illegally voting in November 2012 and May 2014.

While it’s a breath of fresh air to see such high-level interest in prosecuting election crimes, TTV spokesman Logan Churchwell told The Blaze, “You could prosecute thousands of cases, but the root cause is we are not verifying citizenship and [just] taking people’s word for it … Until we have a larger conversation about verifying citizenship, this is going to keep happening.
