    ICE demands ‘exhaustive’ voting records from North Carolina

    BY BRIAN MURPHY
    September 05, 2018 12:05 PM


    WASHINGTON
    Immigration authorities want North Carolina elections officials to turn over nearly a decade’s worth of voting records by the end of the month.

    The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina subpoenaed the state records Friday. The State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement says subpoenas also went to the 44 counties in the eastern district. A meeting notice from the board says the subpoena came at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    Among the state records from Jan. 1, 2010 through Aug. 30, 2018 that were requested: any and all voter registration applications, federal write-in absentee ballots, federal post card applications, early voting application forms, provisional voting forms, absentee ballot request forms, all “admission or denial of non-citizen return forms,” and all voter registration cancellation or revocation forms.

    North Carolina has nearly 7 million registered voters, according to the state board.

    Wake County received one of the subpoenas Friday. Documents requested from the county are: “Any and all poll books, e-poll books, voting records, and/or voter authorization documents, and executed official ballots (including absentee official ballots), that were submitted to, filed by, received by, and/or maintained by the Wake County Board of Elections from August 30, 2013 through August 30, 2018.”

    Gary Sims, the director of Wake County’s board of elections, said his staff has not begun to gather the data requested nor has it responded to the subpoena. The state and counties must appear in court with the documents in Wilmington on Sept. 25 at 8 a.m.

    “We’re going to see what information we receive from the state board meeting this Friday,” Sims said.

    The state board plans to meet Friday at 10 a.m.

    The state board is “deeply concerned” by the request, it said in an email sent to the board of elections in each of the 44 counties.

    “We are deeply concerned by the administrative drain on county boards of elections in order to comply with the extensive subpoenas immediately prior to a federal election, including the necessary reproduction of millions of documents (all ballots, etc.). The subpoenas faxed to county boards are the most exhaustive on record,” wrote Josh Lawson, general counsel for the state board.

    “In our view, compliance with the subpoena as-written will materially affect the ability of county administrators to perform time-critical tasks ahead of absentee voting and early voting.”

    In August, 19 people were charged with voting illegally because they weren’t U.S. citizens, The News & Observer reported. The people hailed from countries across the globe.

    A federal grand jury in Wilmington handed up the indictments, which were announced by Robert J. Higdon Jr., U.S. attorney for the eastern district.

    The district includes Raleigh, Elizabeth City, Fayetteville, Greenville, New Bern and Wilmington.

    This is a good start, but I'd like to see this done in every state. It really would've been nice if it were done in every state before the midterm elections. And the people who are caught voting fraudulently, should be imprisoned and then immediately deported, with their property and other possessions here in the U.S., confiscated by the government and auctioned off.

    They tried with Kobach in charge of a special task force. However, the task force was abandoned because states weren't cooperating.

    North Carolina challenges 'unreasonable' U.S. subpoenas for voter data

    Suzannah Gonzales

    (Reuters) - North Carolina’s elections board voted on Friday to challenge federal subpoenas seeking years’ worth of voter information from state and local officials, saying the timing, scope and unknown nature of the inquiry were cause for concern.

    The U.S. Justice Department on Aug. 31 issued the subpoenas on behalf of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the state board and as many as 44 county elections boards in eastern North Carolina.

    The demand was “overly broad, unreasonable, vague, and clearly impacts significant interests of our voters,” said Joshua Malcolm, vice chairman of the North Carolina State Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement.


    “This Board will ... not stand idly by and consent to any agency attempting to obtain records and documents that violate the principles of overreach by the federal government, as in this circumstance,” Malcolm said before Friday’s vote during a telephone meeting of the bipartisan board. A transcript of the vote was posted online by the state elections board.

    Voting-rights issues have drawn heightened scrutiny across the United States in a congressional election year when Democrats are fighting to regain power in various states and at the national level.


    The North Carolina board voted unanimously to authorize the state attorney general’s office to take steps to quash the subpoenas. In a Friday letter, a state assistant attorney general asked a federal prosecutor to withdraw the subpoenas immediately.


    Local media said the subpoenas could be connected to a case in the district involving 19 foreign nationals charged last month with illegally voting before and on Nov. 8, 2016. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina declined to comment on what prompted the subpoenas and the vote.


    The federal government is seeking documents dating back to 2010 including voter registration application information, forms that voters sign at polling places before casting ballots, records declaring U.S. citizenship and official ballots.

    Complying with the subpoenas would mean producing more than 15 million documents from the state board and about 5.6 million ballots from the counties, state elections board spokesman Patrick Gannon said in an email.


    “We do not know the impetus behind these subpoenas,” he said.


    In a letter on Thursday, a federal prosecutor told state elections board lawyer Joshua Lawson that voters’ actual choice of candidates were not relevant to the inquiry and should be redacted as much as possible. The letter was posted online by the state elections board.


    The Justice Department initially requested the documents by Sept. 25, prompting criticism from elections officials who said the demand was ill-timed as they are busy preparing for the Nov. 6 elections.

    Federal authorities then said this week they were willing to postpone the deadline until January, provided the elections board vowed to preserve the subpoenaed documents.

    Assistant U.S. attorney Sebastian Kielmanovich issued the subpoenas Thursday to forty-four counties in North Carolina’s federal Eastern District, including Wake County. The probe spans five years, including all “poll books, e-poll books, voting records, and/or voter authorization documents, and executed official ballots (including absentee ballots)” from August 30, 2013, through August 30, 2018. The DOJ wants the documents by September 25—three weeks before early voting begins—according to documents posted by the State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement.

    Yep, see that in the lead article...

    Among the state records from Jan. 1, 2010 through Aug. 30, 2018 that were requested: any and all voter registration applications, federal write-in absentee ballots, federal post card applications, early voting application forms, provisional voting forms, absentee ballot request forms, all “admission or denial of non-citizen return forms,” and all voter registration cancellation or revocation forms.
    While all data at our BOEs is supposed to be public record, Ivenever seen anyone request voter application forms and write-in ballots before.

    A subpoena to the state elections board seeks even more information, requests documents going back to January 2010, including voter registration and early voting application forms, absentee ballot request forms, “any and all ‘admission or denial of non-citizen return forms” and records of any voter registration canceled or revoked by the board.
