Maybe that's why Texas

is refusing to let OSCE monitors inspect its election process. I read about this yesterday in a news wire report attached to yahoo.nl, but it doesn't seem to be in today's SF Chronicle, despite the chance of mocking Texan quasiconservatives as the chauvinists or cheaters they surely are.

Hey, the Democrats in Texas have a history of turning out more votes in

some counties in some elections than there are registered voters in the county. Makes you wonder which counties the Republicans do that in or do they just take mroe care to hide it.

research the Governor's race for Washington state in 2004 or the Al Franken election to know what they're capable of doing. It happens a lot more than people are willing to admit.

Proof, please.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to If..

After all the time wasted in SC with a voter ID bill, and the money wasted defending it in multiple courts, there are still no documented cases of voter fraud in the state since Reconstruction, and far more cases of legal voters being denied access to the polls. What a waste 'protecting' us from something that has occurred less frequently than shark attacks at Myrtle Beach or earthquakes in Charleston.

I suspect he's going back to the research, after the fact, on the 1960

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Proof, please.

presidential election where a report found that most of the graveyards around Chicago voted Democrat for Kennedy. In a couple of counties in Texas the number of votes counted equalled one and a half times that of the number of registered voters - neat trick.

One part of the research showed a small 3 bedroom house in Chicago appeared to have 56 voters registered to it - talk abut cramped quarters.

It was interesting reading about the things that went on. Kennedy was once quoted as saying that in one Senatorial election he won as his people got around to more graveyards than his opponent - it was an accepted practice to vote the graveyard then, and would appear it still is.

And my SC state tax dollars aren't being wasted in IL, TX, or MA.

latest evidence?

by JJFitz In reply to 50 years ago.

Deadly Ernest,
Please cite your sources of confirmed cases of voter fraud.
Then compare your figure to the over 130 million people who voted in the 2008 presidential election.
Absentee ballot voting by using the names of dead people still on the reigstration rolls is more significant than voter impersonation at the polls yet we hear very little discussion from either major party about that.
If the government wants to spend money to reduce voter fraud, they should hold up a mirror to themselves and say, "Gee, we should clean up our registration list from readily available information (death records)on a more frequent basis."

JJ the problem is getting enough evidence to be safe from legal action

by Deadly Ernest In reply to 50 years ago.

however, here's something more recent than the 1960s, as asked, of

votes being made by the deceased on 1993 -

unstated voting fraud in 1996 with David Thibodaux - Chris John

Media reports on elections as recent as the US 2008 election have claims of the recently deceased voting from the graveyard via an absentee or postal vote. Also Caging of votes is increasing as well, according to some reports.
