    The Secretary of State of Colorado, Scott Gessler released a study on March 8 that shows a disturbing problem with the Voter Registration process in his state. The study identified almost 12,000 non-citizens as registered voters in Colorado. More disturbing is that the study pointed out almost 5,000 non-citizens actually voted in the November 2010 elections. The Subcommittee on Elections, part of the Committee on House Administration, has decided to follow up on the Colorado study and review measures across the country in order to ‘protect the integrity of our electoral process.’ From the Committee on House Administration’s site :
    WASHINGTON – Today, Subcommittee on Elections Chairman Gregg Harper, R-Miss., issued the following statement announcing a review of state voter registration processes after a recent Colorado study revealed that as many as 5,000 non-citizens voted in Colorado during the 2010 elections:
    “This report is extremely troubling and cause for a thorough review of the current registration processes implemented across the country, which I guarantee will be a priority for this Subcommittee. It also calls into question each state’s ability to enforce current voting laws and whether or not we need to pursue additional measures to better protect the integrity of our electoral process.

    In January 2010, there were 158 registered voters in the Fallen Leaf Lake Community Services District. By August 2010, that number had grown to 461.

    This flood of voter registrations was spurred by political turmoil in the area. However, such a significant increase in voters over such a short period of time does not go unnoticed. A voter fraud investigation was opened by the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office and the California Secretary of State’s Office.

    Much of the political divide within the Fallen Leaf Lake CSD revolved around the replacement of longtime Fallen Leaf Lake store and marina operators John and Ruth Rich. Even though the board of directors voted unanimously to replace the Riches on two occasions, the community was sorely divided. In July 2010, residents petitioned for a recall election to replace two of the board members. The recall election was approved, and voter registrations started pouring in.

    When the small district whose voter registration numbers generally hover somewhere around 100 to 150 voters quickly jumped to more than 400, red flags went up at the El Dorado County Elections Department. The elections office alerted the Secretary of State’s Office, which in turn alerted the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office.

    An investigation was launched that lasted just more than a year and identified felony voter fraud. The determination was that many of the voters who voted in the August 2010 election were not legally eligible to vote in the Fallen Leaf Lake Community Services District. Some were ineligible because Fallen Leaf Lake is not their legal domicile, and some were registered to vote in more than one district.

    On Sept. 19, 2011, District Attorney Vern Pierson issued a letter to every voter registered at the time of the August 2010 recall election outlining the department’s decision in the matter.

    The letter states, “This investigation revealed that improprieties had in fact occurred, and were criminally subject to prosecution as felony-grade offenses. Largely because the acts appear to have been precipitated by poor judgment, some misinformation which was circulating in the community, and a failure by some to accurately and fully appreciate the requirements of the pertinent law, this office has determined to decline prosecution at this time.

    Charlie White Accuses Evan Bayh, Wife Of Voter Fraud

    Embattled Secretary Of State Files Complaint With Prosecutor's Office

    POSTED: 5:01 pm EDT October 11, 2011
    UPDATED: 6:23 am EDT October 12, 2011

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Embattled Secretary of State Charlie White has filed a complaint alleging voter fraud against former Sen. Evan Bayh and his wife.

    The five-page, single-spaced complaint filed Tuesday with the Marion County Prosecutor's Office accuses the former Democratic senator and Susan Bayh of casting ballots in May's primary in Indiana while living in Washington, D.C.

    White also accuses the Bayhs of improperly claiming a property tax homestead exemption on a condo they own in Marion County.
    "On multiple occasions throughout his life, Evan Bayh has consistently voted wherever he likes regardless of where he lives and/or resides because 'he is Evan Bayh,'" White's complaint reads. "The complainant believes that Evan and Susan Bayh have been granted privileges, rights, immunities and flexibility that are not being afforded to the complainant, his family, nor to any Indiana citizens, unless they are otherwise wealthy or politically powerful."

    White faces trial in January on seven felony charges, including voter fraud, after prosecutors allege he illegally registered to vote at his ex-wife's address when he declared his candidacy for the office.
    White said the Bayhs should be held to the same standards.

    "By (Indiana Democratic) Chairman Dan Parker's own definition, Evan and Susan Bayh, unfortunately, are alleged felons. I take no joy in filing this complaint, but the Democrats have opened themselves up for this," White said in a news release. "It is time for the Indiana Democrat Party's hypocrisy to stop with their persecution of me and my family for partisan gain."

    In the complaint, White requests that Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry, also a Democrat, appoint two independent prosecutors to investigate the claims.

    "We have received the documents and are reviewing them," the office said in a statement.

    Parker's office called White's complaint "laughable and regrettable" and called for White to step down.

    "This complaint is nothing but a diversion for people coming up for his hearing both in criminal court and civil court, and I think most people see through it," Parker said. "It's just one more reason why he should do the right thing and just resign."

    A representative with the Indiana Secretary of State's Office told 6News that the complaint was not filed on behalf of the office, and that White had filed the document as a private citizen. ... etail.html

    Chairman of Local Indiana Democratic Party Resigns Amid Fake Signature Scandal

    Published October 18, 2011
    The chairman of the St. Joseph County Democratic Party has resigned amid a scandal that reveals hundreds of signatures on petitions for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to appear on the state's 2008 primary ballot were faked.

    Butch Morgan announced his resignation in a statement Monday, saying, "After consulting with the Indiana Democratic State Party, I am stepping down as chairman of the St. Joseph County Democratic Party and as chairman of the Second District Democratic Party, effective today."
    Morgan, who's been the county chairman since 1995, denied any wrongdoing and said he "regrets" having to resign.

    "I hope no one will misinterpret the reasons for my resignation," Morgan said, "I have done nothing wrong and I look forward to an investigation that will exonerate me of any wrongdoing."

    Both of Indiana's Republican and Democratic Party chairmen have called for a federal investigation into the forged names that appeared on petitions from the 2nd Congressional District, which contains St. Joseph County. Among the dozens of names so far discovered to be fake are former Indiana Democratic Gov. Joe Kernan.

    Kernan told the South Bend Tribune last week that neither the print version of his name nor the signature that appear on the suspect document are anything like his own.

    Yet, his and other names were approved by the county voter registration office with the use of a rubber stamp in place of a signature by the Republican member of the office.

    The Tribune reported that the St. Joseph County voter registration office has a Democratic and Republican member who sign off on petition pages submitted for review. However, Republican Linda Silcott was out of the office on bereavement leave on the days the suspected fakes passed through her office.

    Silcott's stamped signature is used on the suspect pages while Democrat Pam Brunette signed off on the petitions in her own hand. The Tribune reported that Silcott's deputy, Mary Carrol Ringler, has authority to use the stamp, but she does not recall if she did so, in part because the dates of the forged petitions coincide with her first two weeks in her post.
    On Friday Indiana Republican Party Chairman Eric Holcomb submitted a request for a federal probe to be conducted by the Department of Justice.

    Voter registration
    A photo ID and proof of citizenship should be required to register to vote.

    The registration period should end at least one week before an election.
    States should be required to clean up their registration lists by comparing them with lists of citizens who have died, been convicted of felonies, or relocated. State election officials should be permitted to set up centralized national lists of such individuals. Federal immigration lists of non-citizens should be made available to the states.

    Felons should not be permitted to register or vote before completing their sentences.

    Absentee voting
    The use of absentee ballots should be limited to individuals who are unable to vote in person, including those who are ill or disabled, and soldiers stationed overseas. A copy of a photo ID should be submitted along with all absentee ballots. The signatures on absentee ballots should either be notarized or witnessed by two other individuals who provide their own addresses and telephone numbers.

    The number of voter signatures any one individual is permitted to witness should be limited. Only voters, immediate family members and caregivers should be allowed to deliver absentee ballots on behalf of voters.

    Provisional ballots
    The use of provisional ballots should be limited to voters who actually need them. Provisional voters should affirm that they are registered and eligible to vote, and display a photo ID to the election official, who then verifies eligibility at the central registration office. Voters who are at the wrong polling place should be sent to the correct one.
    Voting at a polling place

    A photo ID should be required as identification at the polls when appearing in person to vote.
    Election monitoring and sanctions for fraud
    Non-partisan groups should be permitted to appoint poll watchers.
    State officials should be given greater powers to investigate election abuses.

    Individuals who commit vote fraud should be routinely prosecuted, fined, and jailed. At present, such prosecutions are infrequent and jail sentences are almost non-existent.

    Organizations that systematically engage in vote fraud should be charged under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

    18,460 dead people on Ohio voter rolls
    Updated: Thursday, 14 Apr 2011, 9:17 AM EDT
    Published : Wednesday, 13 Apr 2011, 4:40 PM EDT

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's top elections official says it appears that thousands of voters considered "active" are anything but.

    Secretary of State Jon Husted says a report has found nearly 18,500 dead people on the state's voter rolls. Records of registered voters were cross-checked with a list of deceased Ohioans maintained by the state Health Department.

    The secretary is asking county elections boards to purge those who are deceased from the statewide voter database.

    Husted said in a statement Tuesday that the integrity of voter data is critical from a cost, quality and confidence standpoint.

    He wants to establish a more centralized state database so his office could more easily compare voter information with files kept by several state agencies, including the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and the prisons department. ... oter-rolls
