The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud.

  • 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
  • 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
  • 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.

The second point is key, as double voting is election fraud under state and federal statutes. Punishment for double voting in federal elections can include jail time.

In October 2012, Project Veritas produced video showing a Barack Obama campaign worker helping a voter register to vote in both Texas and Florida.

The Interstate Crosscheck examines 101 million voter records in more than two dozen participating states.

The findings, while large, leave open the question of just how widespread double voting might be since 22 states did not participate in the Interstate Crosscheck.

In addition to the above, the crosscheck found that more than 13,000 deceased voters remain on North Carolina’s rolls, and that 81 of them showed voter activity in their records after death.

North Carolina officials are now calling for tighter election security.

Voter fraud and The Democratic Party go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Oh, wait... peanut butter and jelly is racist.

But committing voter fraud under the helpful ACORN/SEIU tutelage is "voter supplementation", the opposite of voter "suppression". Because heaven knows, if the media isn't lying enough to try to steal elections, community organizers and The Workers Party have to give Democrats the "bump" they need.

The bit about justifying voter suppression is one of those outrage statements I wrote about last night. It's childish. It's also not borne out by the facts -- studies have shown that when election laws improve integrity, turnout increases overall. Not that I expect facts to matter to you.

That's the best you can come up with?? That the announcement was made by Republicans?

Are you really dumb enough to think that Democrats would announce a massive case of voter fraud?

I apologize for correcting my correction and taking up three posts, but further investigation, and reading the detailed statistical analysis linked to below, indicates that I was correct the first time and there are literally MILLIONS of people in the US with the same name and birth date.

Yep. It's sometimes called, "The small world effect."

I have an unusual name, and there are 4 of me in the U.S. that I've been able to find. One of them lives right down the road (so to speak) from me. Okay, 60 miles or so. Still, that's pretty amazing. He's a reporter. Wow! Turns out that one of the others is a reporter, too! Small world, isn't it? Yes, in some ways, it is.

What do you want to bet that any of those has the same last 4 digits in his SSN, too?


Struggle with math, much?

Most people who have common names generally also give their middle names/initials just to ensure they aren't mistaken for someone else. I know I share my first and last name with a baseball player, yet my middle name is "James."

And besides, picture IDs would save a lot of trouble regarding that problem anyways, and despite your claims, they're not that difficult to get.

correction: There are probably between 500,000 and a million people in the US who share the same first and last names and DOB. Not "millions". But that doesn't change anything. It would be surprising if 37,000 of them didn't vote on election day somewhere.

Fraud discovered? Don't make me laugh. Do you have any idea how many people have the same first and last names and DOB? Millions.

Let's do a little thought experiment shall we? How many babies named John Smith were born in the USA on January 1, 1940? How many named Frank Smith? Robert Jones? Mary Jones? William Brown? Susan Williams? Jane Brown? Get it? LOTS of babies are born every single day with the same name. Now, let's move on to January 2, 1940... Then January 3, 1940, all the way up to November 6, 1994. Get it? There are lots and lots of days too. So there are literally millions of voters with the same names and DOB. What is so surprising or suspicious that a lot of them voted on election day?

So finding 36,000 people with the same first and last names and DOB who voted on election day is really no surprise at all.

And the 765 voters who also share the same last four numbers of their SSN? That HAS to be proof, right? No, because one in every 10,000 have that characteristic too.

@Instarx if 1 in 10,000 have first, last, DOB and SSN in common AND 765 voters in NC alone then 7.65 Million people voted. Slight problem with your math... NC population in 2012 equals 7.2 Million. So either 106% of the population voted or there IS voter fraud.
Additional Facts that you ignored:
6.6 million NC registered voters in 2012
68.3% (4.5 Million) turnout according to NC Board of Elections

I would really like to see another source for this, or the original source, rather than a press release from a state legislator.

Agree. The "report" is really just a series of PowerPoint slides handed out by a single GOP legislator in NC. No discussion of the data. No discussion of the statistics, no discussion of the probable validity of the raw data, and no information about how these numbers were derived from that data.

Given that the 36,000 number is what would normally be expected given the number of people in the US having the same name and DOB by accident, I challenge the legislator's conclusion in all points. It is clear that the "report" was either incompetently done, deceptive, or both.

show us the data, sir.

Republicans swept the 2012 NC election. What does that say?

This: "35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election."

Where does this particular fact appear? I have been looking for the original source and have been unable to find anything about all these people ACTUALLY voting in both states.

Even if that many people with the same name and DOB did vote in more than one state it doesn't indicate voter fraud. There are many, many people in the US who have the same name and birth date. It isn't surprising that most of them vote in different states.

I don't know if voter ID would help this. You can vote in two states without misrepresenting yourself.

And to think that when I was young the little old ladies in the Brooklyn Board of Elections would not let me register because my parents were planning to vote. And then they would not give me an absentee ballot even though I was at college in Manhattan and our classes went until late at night...

If you had a voter ID and was registered in FL and TX it would be very unlikely that you would vote in one state and then travel to the second state on the same election day just to cast a second vote. The voter ID would inhibit someone in the other state from going to the ballot box CLAIMING to be you. Since there are multiple ways to commit voter fraud we require multiple measures to ensure the validity of the vote. Just because you can come up with a scenario in which a given measure would not work is not justification for getting rid of that measure.

If they're illigals , immediate deport, if they're on welfare immediate removal of freebies.

I hope states work to prosecute election fraud. Near certain that Eric Holder's Justice Department will not. Businesses routinely buy USPS change of mailing address databases. Seems to me that states could actively look for people who moved and remove them from their voter registration. Just sending people lots of bulk mail reminders for jury duty, taxes, fees, etc. with a correction form would probably get people to voluntarily correct their voter registration to get off the mailing list.
