With election day less than a month away, there are multiple cases of voter fraud emerging from past elections. Liberals attempt to make excuses to not follow voter ID laws by saying that they are discriminatory towards minority groups, but how can identifying those whose votes are to be counted be considered discrimination if it actually ensures integrity in the voting process?
In Colorado, there were multiple cases where the names of dead people were used in attempted voter fraud. A certain woman, Sara Sosa, who died in 2009, was found to have ballots in her name for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Virginia has found the same type of fraud being used with more than 20 names this past year.
Texas officials are now investigating a type of fraud called “vote harvesting,” which means illegally obtaining signatures of valid voters to fraudulently use their names without consent. The voters would find that someone else cast their vote for them for whichever candidate the fraudster wanted. There’s no reason to think that these are isolated incidents.
Brennan Center at New York University claims that voter fraud is a myth. The only fact they were able to use in support of this claim is the lack of voter fraud enforcement in North Carolina, which is a focus of their report. In other words, they claim that there have been no charges brought against any individual for voter-fraud, but this does not mean that none occurred. That would be a non-sequitur.
A Pew Research report from 2012 showed that one in every 8 voter registrations are significantly inaccurate or no longer can be considered valid. This means that there are approximately 18 million invalid voter registrations among the 146 million registered voters. According to the report, over “1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters, and approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.”
The fact that there is little to no enforcement of voter fraud is reason enough to think that there are likely many more cases of fraud brewing in the election this year.
