Everyone's interested in making it easier to for citizens to perform
their Constitutional right to vote - except Republicans. They're
against it. They pretend there's a problem with fraud, even though
time and again such cases have been shown to be so few and far between
as to be statistically insignificant. Republicans are fully aware they
cannot win elections in most locations when the majority of eligible
voters are allowed to vote. So their strategy is to make it as
difficult as possible for as many citizens as possible to exercise
their Constitutional right to cast a ballot. Once again, Republicans
prove they hate America, they hate the Constitution, and they
especially fear and hate their fellow citizens.
Yep, people are getting used to being able to vote in advance, so more
of them are doing it.
I call bullshit on that claim. Without a court order (which requires
evidence to support the suspicion of wrongdoing before a judge will
sign off on it), there's no way to obtain information that specific.
The best they might be able to get without a court order is a list of
IP addresses - and those are usually not linked to a specific
computer. If they are able to document their allegation that only 3
pcs are linked to the requests, odds are they are computers at the
local library or city hall, where people filled out online requests to
have absentee ballots mailed to their home.
It's one hell of a huge leap to assume anything criminal in those very
ordinary, very routine circumstances.
Sounds like he's also facing the real possibility of losing this
election, which would explain his motivation.

Which of course is a lie. In every election I've ever seen
both parties have had plenty of people to assist people who
want to vote with being able to do so. They'll even drive

I never see Republicans going around apologizing for America.
That's left up to the Democrats, like Obama with his worldwide
apology tour. It's worked well too. Look at all the progress
and respect we have now. I mean kissing Putin's ass, for example,
has worked wonders.
It's possible, but it's certainly worthy of investigation.
I wouldn't assume anything. But I would say something doesn't smell
right when you already have almost as many applications for an absentee
ballot as there were total votes cast in the last election in one
district. And it's worthy of investigation.
when someone dies, do you think the first thing the friends or family
think is "let's go to the county clerk and tell them", not to mention
that without a proper death certificate AND a legal document stating
you are the legal representative of the estate, it's quite difficult to
do such things

That certainly opens up a lot of room for abuse doesn't it?
Best case, the family continues to vote the dead guy. Worst case, some
smart computer guy looks for dead people en masse and requests
absentee ballots for them.
If the election supervisor has removed them from the rolls, the only
thing that happens is the bad guy doesn't get that ballot.
In something like a councilman seat like this, a couple hundred votes
can easily swing the race.
best case is nothing happens, worst case is some abuses the system...of

for the County Clerk, Social Security or some other gov't agency to

better, wouldn't they?
The Social Security admin mantains a 'death list' I work with hospice and
many businesses use the list to build a contact list for cold calling.
People travel rfor wok, school etc.. In one texas town there are something
on the order of 30K more registered voters (mostly republican) than there
were residents in the last censes (under the law the censes counts where
you are on at the time not where you claim to live)
For the most part these are retired folk who full time in RVs and maintain
their legal residence for tax reasons in Liberty TX. The issue has been to
the USSC and judged legal. (look it up)
Why? To my understanding there is one state where all vote by mail. Due to
conflicts and long lines (Pubs seem to be trying to make those longer) it's
a matter of being less of a hassle.

I am having difficulty figuring out how the SSDI can be a good source of
contacts for cold-calling. Unless you want to be really sure they are cold.

Australians vote by mail--and get fined if they don't.
If the IP comes back to McDonalds or the library, I agree. If it comes
back to a lobby group, charges are in order.
BTW this is the same TV station that tracked down a number of aliens
who voted and nothing came of that, in spite of actually getting them
to admit on camera that they voted illegally.
Now you really threw a curveball. Let those people who believe Palin &
Mitt got beat by voter fraud, believe it. You're taking the fun out of the

maybe the same IP but proving it is the same computer should be

tablet going door to door registering people or some event at a church
or school doing the same thing
