Update on May 8,2012 – NC Primary Election Day
This particular blog post has reached 10,116 readers since it was posted.
Updated March 19, 2012:
After reading Don Wright’s (attorney for the State Board of Elections) email to Joyce McCloy of the NC Coalition for Verified Voting, I sent him an email to get some clarification on the points he made. I informed him that Ms. McCloy had copied his email and posted it in the Civitas Review Blog and I included a link to the blog so that he could take a look at our conversation.
I downloaded the latest absentee file and found that 3,315 of 110 year old voters voted early in the last election and 3,090 of those voters voted in 2008 (they were 108 years old at the time). The data would indicate that these voters’ records are not getting updated at the polling place as Mr. Wright claimed when he wrote, “If these voters show up to vote, the poll workers inquire as to their correct birth date and that information is added.”
I went a little further in my research to find that there are over 19,000 voters whose age reflects the number 110 in Cumberland, Guilford, Forsyth and Davidson counties. So much for Mr. Wright’s assertion that: “Since that time, we have be (sic) able to reduce the number of such voters down to a little over two thousand.”
And, I hope Mr. Wright got it wrong when he wrote “When a county does not have a birth date for a voter, they use a default date for that voters birth date and most counties use 1/1/1900.” Surely, if a county does not have a birth date, the county’s procedure would be to put the registration aside until it could be determined that the voter was at least 18 years old.
Yes Apokalupsis, dead people can vote in NC and our voting system would protect them. The State Board of Elections has partnered with the Legislature and other progressive/liberal groups for the past 20 years to bring us to this place. They have been busy passing legislation that makes it easier for everyone to vote while never addressing ballot security (see same-day registration, pre-registration, reversals in HAVA and NVRA requirements).
I emailed Mr. Wright yesterday morning and have not heard back from him yet, but when I do I will report back with his response.
Source #2 ZOMBIE VOTING
Isn’t it funny typical of the mainstream media that when voter fraud is discovered in North Carolina, they make a joke of it? The News and Observer’s article titled Zombie Voters in Washington County? included accounts of dead voters voting and mishandled absentee ballots.
The Fayetteville Observer carries the Zombie gag one step further in editorializing that a photo ID requirement would probably not stop Zombie’s from voting – since you can “Never underestimate the determination of a zombie.” Yes that’s right, the expectation of any semblance of election integrity in North Carolina has always been really funny.
——End of Update—–
A Granville County senior citizen cast their ballot here in NC during early voting. I mean a REALLY SENIOR CITIZEN. They were 11 years old when the US Civil War began in 1861. I would LOVE to sit this person down and a have a conversation with them. Think of all the things they have seen in their 160 year lifetime.
So far in early voting 110 year olds have made a pretty good showing; 2214 of them have voted either by mail or at a one-stop site (214 by mail and 2,000 at early voting sites). There are 1,420 Democrats in this group, 717 Republicans and 77 Unaffiliated voters.
Nothing against very old voters, but it is funny that these 110 year olds live in only 34 counties and 87% of them live in 4 counties – Guilford has voted 681 of them so far, Forsyth – 581, Cumberland – 427 and Davidson voted 230.
Some more facts about these older voters: 1,923 of this year’s group also voted in the 2008 General Election during early voting – they were only 108 back then. In 2008 a total 9,688 108 year olds voted early.
And just in case you thought 110 was pretty old, Gaston County data shows that a 154 year old voter has cast a ballot and Granville County’s data reflects a voter who is 160 years old.
Can you say VOTER FRAUD?????
