Voter Fraud

            The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday is voter fraud. Liberals laughed at President Donald Trump when he claimed that voter fraud kept him from winning the popular vote. There may not be the millions of fraudulent votes that he claimed, but there were cases of falsified voter registration.  
            Less than two weeks ago Fox News reported that twelve people were “charged for allegedly submitting fake or fraudulent voter registration applications before the 2016 presidential election.” There were eleven temporary employees and one supervisor working for an Indiana-based group that was working on registering black voters. The group was “tied to former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and former President Bill Clinton. The group “allegedly submitted an unknown number of falsified applications” that were “known to be `false, fictitious, or fraudulent.’”

            The report covered one group in one state that “allegedly submitted an unknown number” of application to vote. How many other groups were doing the same thing?

            Judicial Watch is a “conservative, non-partisan American educational foundation that promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law.” For the 2016 election they worked through their Election Integrity Project to bring about fair and honest elections. They printed a booklet titled 8 Things You Can Do Now to Help STOP Voter Fraud. The pamphlet is a guide to help citizens in ensuring that the 2016 and future elections are free and fair. Even though the 2016 election is in the past, there will be future elections that citizens can begin thinking about and working towards. The eight suggestions for becoming involved are as follow.

1. Become a poll worker.
2. Become a poll watcher.
3. Perform voter registration research.
4. Speak out at election board meetings and local precinct sessions.
5. Write “Letters to the Editor” and opinion editorials.
6. Call in to radio talk shows.
7. Create your own blog, or blog on other sites.
8. Be active in social networking.

            You may wonder if you can actually make a difference. The writers of pamphlet respond with a definite yes. “In every county in every state where more people are listed on voter rolls than are counted in the Census, there is a problem, and one that can lead to fraud.” Many states have messy voter registration rolls that “can be greatly improved with the help of volunteers like you…. Your help is needed both to examine voter registration rolls and to act as poll workers and poll watchers for your precinct. Only in this way can we ensure free and fair elections.”

            The pamphlet gives contact information for both Judicial Watch and True the Vote. I encourage you to become involved in one or more of the suggested ways, either as an individual, part of a local group, or by contacting one of the following organizations.
