40,000 Voters Registered in Virginia and Maryland

ballot-box

Obama won Virginia by a little over 100,000 votes. And according to him there’s no such thing as voter fraud. So there’s no reason to worry.

A crosscheck of voter rolls in Virginia and Maryland turned up 44,000 people registered in both states, a vote-integrity group reported Wednesday.

Working with the Privileges and Elections committees of the state House and Senate, VVA identified 31,000 dead voters via the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File. Subsequent processing by SBE found 40,000 to 60,000 dead voter registrations.

And the dead tend to vote Democrat. Or as they like to be called Undead-Americans.

    No wonder the undead are always looking for “brains”…..they vote Left so of course they hunger for what they lack. ;)
    Things are so much worse then even a cynic like me would have thought possible.
    Thank you for taking the time to get this stuff out there.

    Arresting and charging these people when they show up to cast the vote of a dead person might help, but most probably mail in absentee ballots. I’m just amazed elections are ever even close, between the massive voter fraud and the hyperpartisan msm.

  • Gee

    I thought they like the illegals in the country were consolidated as “Undocumented Democrats”

    So, let’s get out there and win the Walking Dead vote! Remarks about their decedent status will be treated as “racist,” and charges levied against the criminal.

    • Marcus

      Walking Dead is a popular TV show.
      By coining the term “WALKING DEAD VOTE” in our media drive, buzzword drive, & celebrity driven culture this is an important contribution.
      People can relate to it. It is memorable.
      Every state needs a honest statistic that can be summed in by the term Walking Dead vote.

      • DogmaelJones1

        Thank you, Marcus. I was hoping someone would see the value of the idea of a “Walking Dead” vote. Hope it catches on.

    Why leave this part out?

    ——George acknowledged that the number of voters who actually cast multiple
    ballots is relatively small. In the case of Maryland and Virginia, he
    revealed that 164 people voted in both states during the 2012 election.—–

      What percentage of rapes are reported?

      What percentage of illegal border crossers are caught?

      If the 164 accounted for only 10% of all illegal votes in those states, they could very well swing elections.

      So eager to throw cold water you are, but not look at things from all angles.

        Not sure what rapes and Mexicans have to do with this.

        “George acknowledged that the number of voters who actually cast multiple ballots is relatively small.”

        Note the words “actually cast.” This tells us that the 156 is not an estimate, or a fraction of duplicate votes cast. It tells us that 156 duplicate votes were actually cast.

        Unlike sexual assaults and undocumenteds that are unreported, the voting record is — by definition — documented.

        • John

          The rape and border crossing statistics were showing that many problems are underreported due to lack of resources or lack of priority.
          Surely people staffing ballot boxes do not want poll integrity to be a priority and will avow that there is not a problem.

        • John

          Watchdog.org was reporting on is 1 method of looking for vote fraud. Bouncing two databases together is a quick, inexpensive and easy way of detecting problem. It is not the only way to detect fraud. You seem to want to think it is. You fight so hard to deny any problem what so ever.

    • NAHALKIDES

      Maybe there were more than that, and those are just the confirmed cases. Also, there are other kinds of voter fraud, such as dead people, people voting who aren’t registered, etc. We can trust Democrats to use every possible method of fraud.

    • T800

      that is STILL 164 double votes too many.

      tell us,exactly how many double or illegitimate votes do you believe to be acceptable?

    • DB1954

      The Virginia Voters Alliance group found 44,000 people registered in both MD and VA. Why would 44,000 people find it necessary to be simultaneously registered in these two states? And how could 44,000 people be registered in both MD and VA?

      There were 164 who voted in both states? That’s not many, but on the other hand, this means that 43, 836 others might have voted in only one state, but each one of those votes may still have been illegal for some other reason. One such reason would be, for example, that they were MD voters who registered in VA and voted in VA. MD was expected to go blue in 2012. MD Democrats might have arranged for these MD residents to register and vote illegally in VA.

      How could this happen? What? There were 44,000 people who moved from one state to the other but just forgot that they remained registered in one state or the other? No, that’s not how this works. Some one rigged the 2012 election in those two states because they were crucial, especially VA.

    Mona Charade is more like it! This is “journalism”?

    So, let’s see…duplicate registrations in adjacent states that share a huge metropolitan area where millions of people live (the Wash. D.C. Alexandria area). First, I’ve done a lot of voter registration, and a lot of people say “I don’t know” when you ask if they’re registered.

    These people come in two categories: relatively uninformed people who move around a lot between rental residences (who don’t even realize they have to re-register every time they move) and relatively informed people who have just moved or got married (changed names) and didn’t realize it right away.

    I lot of people think they are registered and they’re not- and vice-versa. How could people be so “dumb”? Many people just don’t remember. They remember doing it a while ago, but they’re not sure if it was after they moved, etc. Some just can’t recall either way. A lot of people (70% or more) never vote in mid-term or local elections, and only 60% vote in the 4-year presidential elections. You ask them if they remember voting in the last big election, but some aren’t even sure of that. You ask them if they get campaign stuff in the mail- they’re not sure, they say.

    So, as a paid registration worker, if they say they’re not sure, you just tell them they’re welcome to fill out another form- it’s not illegal, and it’s the only way for them to be sure that they’re registered. Sure- they might be “double-registering.” but there’s no way for them (or us, as registration workers) to check first.

    So, you send it in, and the company that pays us pays me for the card, even if it gets flagged as a”double” by the feds after we send it in. If the card gets flagged before it’s sent in (the payer doesn’t have time to check every one- so they check ones at random- sampling, etc.), I don’t get get paid as much for the whole batch I turn in, and if too many sampled ones turn out to be “doubles”- the payer can just reject my whole lot- potentially 3-5 days work, when neither I nor the registees have done anything wrong.

    So, if you’ve read this, you can see that, through absolutely ZERO malfeasance, nefarious motives, etc. following the law and asking the right questions first, a registration worker can rack up a whole lot of “double registrations.”

    Further, if the worker isn’t scrupulous (doesn’t ask the questions, and tells people who say they’re registered to go ahead and do it again so he can get paid for it) and if the payer isn’t scrupulous- the amount of “doubles” can be enormous. They would get flagged at a higher level, though, probably, and the payer would get into big trouble with the folks he turns the cards into. The payer and the registration worker can get fired, not paid, and blacklisted from future registration drives.

    This is how the famous ACORN “scandal” occured. It occurred, also, because it was before there was new technology for payers to vett the “doubles” and catch them at the lower level, and you had unscrupuluos workers and payees who just wanted to make a few more bucks by encouraging people to double register (it is not a crime for the voter to doulble register, only double voting is a crime) and not asking the questions or vetting samples. Now, payers all have laptops with databases of registered voters- they vet (some of) the names first before they pay anyone, as a precaution.

    So…put the “double-registering” problem into a situation like the D.C. area, where thousands of people move back and forth every year between the two sides of the Potomac- and anyone can see how easy it would be for people to get registered- accidentally- in 2 states. However, these “two-state” registrations should be getting caught by the Federal Elections Commission. Why aren’t they? It takes time, is my guess. Just like it takes time to purge every state’s rolls of people who died that year. That’s why you have so many :dead” registrations.

    Nowhere does this “article” state how many of the 44,000 names were actually recorded as VOTING IN BOTH STATES ON THE SAME DAY, IN THE SAME ELECTION. Why? Because that number is probably more like ZERO! Why? It’s 5 years in federal prison for “double voting” even once, even the first offense. Risk 5 years in prison to just give your candidate one more vote? Insanity. Yes, they catch a handful every year.

    Even if all 44,000 actually drove around voting in both states in the 2012 election (a laughable proposition), Obama would’ve won by 66,000 votes. And all 44,000 of those people would be in federal court now, getting sentenced to 5 years each.

    Let’s see the real figures- how many actually voted in both states? How many dead people actually voted? They won’t tell us, because it’s close to none, and thus- no story, no “voter fraud” headline.
