NOTICE OF EMERGENCY STATE BOARD MEETING

The State Board of Elections will hold a public meeting by teleconference on Sunday, November 27, 2016 at 12:30 p.m. Interested members of the public may listen to proceedings by dialing (213) 929-4212 (code: 696-443-050).

AGENDA

Call to order Statement regarding ethics and conflicts of interest G.S. § 138A-15(e)

Consideration of request regarding certain protests of election appealed from Durham County. G.S. § 163-182.12

Closed session to receive briefing from counsel regarding the handling of DeLuca v. Strach et al. and representation therein G.S. § 143-318.11(a)(3) Action to approve the hiring of litigation counsel Adjourn

From the  Thomas H. Stark appeal.

“6. State the legal and factual basis for your appeal. NCGS Chapter 163, Articles 14A (Voting) and 15 (Counting Ballots, etc.) Failure of Tabulators to correctly count ballots for five early voting sites and one Election Day precinct. Manufacturer claims that the error was caused by a software limitation of its operating system (the system could not tabulate the number of votes it
was called to report in the early voting sights), and the fact that Durham County utilized the tabulators in a way that took them beyond the specified limits (by using the one tabulator in each early voting sight, the failure should have been anticipated). The evidence demonstrates that all of the data discussed in the hearing is from the same PCM CIA card utilized in the tabulators, therefore, an independent verification of the reported results has not been performed. At this point it cannot be determined whether the number of ballots in the sealed
boxes from the several tabulators equal the reported results or not. That determination cannot be made until the ballots are counted.”

“7. Is there any material submitted with this appeal that was not presented to and considered by the county board? Is so, please identify and state why it was not presented to the county board. Why do you think the State Board of Elections should consider it? There are a number of anomalies in Durham that appear to have impacted the outcome of this election. There are a series of protests and/or appeals pending before the State Board or the Durham County Board of Elections. It was established in one precinct that a provisional ballot was run through the tabulator in error, allegedly due to deficient availability of adequately trained staff. The provisional ballot was voted in a precinct other than the ones at issue in this protest. The State Board of Elections should direct Durham County to hand count all ballots voted in this election, carefully examining the ballots for provisional markings, as part of considering this appeal that also tests the viability and reliability of the County’s tabulating equipment. The State Board of Elections should assist Durham in determining how many ineligible voters cast ballots in this election. In addition to the provisional ballot illegally voted, it appears that several persons who were ineligible to vote due to their status in the criminal justice system actually cast votes in Durham. Durham has refused to allow the public to review any documents submitted with absentee ballots, despite repeated requests. (See separate appeal submitted this date.) Finally, Durham has a number of Same Day Registrations that the appellant does not believe to be verified, or verified with the level of scrutiny that is warranted. Also enclosed are three pages of data that has been collected from voter registration records and which demonstrate the substantial increase in the number of voters removed from voting rolls in the three months following a general election when contrasted with off year elections, or local election years. Also included are figures for numbers of voters removed from the rolls following the 2012 election in some other nearby urban counties. The number of removed voters are more than the amount necessary to decide the races referred to above, namely Governor and Auditor. The existence of the number of anomalies together with the number of ballots involved, over 94,000, or even a small fraction of them, can change the outcome of the election if not properly tabulated.”

“9. What relief do you seek? Why? The Appellant requests the consideration of all appeals coming to the Board from Durham County, that the State Board exercise control of all protests pending in Durham County, that the State Board carefully consider the eligibility of the voters in Durham County, and remove the votes of persons ineligible to vote from the voting results, whether ineligible as a felon, deceased, voted in another jurisdiction, not domiciled in Durham County, in the precinct indicated, not a Citizen, or for some other reason, that the State Board order Durham County to hand count the ballots to insure no provisional ballots were voted without being properly approved by the Durham County Elections Board, and, further, that the totals are accurately reported. (The Appellant is well aware that the issues which present in Durham County may well apply in other counties as well, and require additional scrutiny by the State Board.)”

***  Update 7:10 PM  ***

From TWC News.

“The North Carolina State Board of Elections says it won’t take up an appeal for a recount of more than 90,000 votes in Durham County until the local board gives them certain documents.

A Republican attorney believes the recount of those votes could change the outcome of the election and the still undecided governor’s race.”

“During an emergency meeting by phone Sunday, members of the state board said their hands are tied until they receive a full record of the hearing the county board held.  They hope to get the transcript of that hearing and any evidence or briefings submitted during the case within the next 48 hours.

“I would request the staff to push Durham any way you can, all of the people in this room together and with anyone else we can, to push Durham,” said Grant Whitney, chairman of the NC State Board of Elections. “We need to get some certainty in our political processes here and it sounds like we’re stuck with the timing.”

Board members said they want some time to review those materials before scheduling a hearing about the appeal.  It may happen late this week.”

From Pat McCrory for Governor November 26, 2016.

“Request for expedited hearing filed with the State Board of Elections

Appeal requests the State Board expeditiously call for a recount of the Durham County early vote data tabulated on election night”

“Today, attorney and registered Durham County voter Thomas Stark filed a formal appeal with the State Board of Elections in relation to the ‘malfeasance’ in tabulating approximately 90,000 ballots that were reported just before midnight on Election Day. The original complaint reasonably demands the County Board of Elections conduct a recount of the original paper ballots before the county’s canvass date. The county denied this request and the Pat McCrory Committee concurs in a call for an expedited appeal of the protest for a full recount of the Durham county early vote ballots. This reasonable request will provide confidence and clarity in the Durham results for the voters of North Carolina. Upon completion of this recount, we can better asses next steps.

“It was concerning to learn that the Durham County Board decided to not approve attorney Tom Stark’s protest to recount the early vote totals from election night. The malfunctions and irregularities in Durham have been extremely troubling to this campaign and the people of North Carolina, and the State Board confirmed several errors. We are now left with no other position but to request the State Board of Elections expeditiously order a full recount of Durham county early vote totals. Once this occurs, we can all move towards a conclusion of this process,” said Russell Peck, campaign manager for the Pat McCrory Committee.

As earlier reported by ABC11, their has been a long history of voting problems in Durham County. In the 2016 general election, electronic errors, glitches and untrained staff caused major problems that received bipartisan scorn. Superior Court Judge Donald Stephens even stated in a recent hearing on the problems, “Durham historically hasn’t figured out how to carry out an election properly.”

During the March 15 primary election, the Durham County Board of Elections mishandled roughly 1,900 provisional ballots forcing the state to allow eligible voters to recast their ballots months later. It was also recently reported that the state board of elections turned over their completed investigation to investigators who are now looking into whether crimes were committed in this case, as election officials said the wrong vote count was accurate and some votes may have been counted twice.

If a Durham recount provides the same results as earlier posted, the McCrory Committee will be prepared to withdraw its statewide recount request in the Governors race.”

I listened to the entire NC State Board of Elections emergency meeting yesterday, November 20, 2016.

And guess what, as best as I can determine, so far the mainstream media is underreporting what took place.

For example, the IT Manager did a query on his own initiative and discovered that over 300 felons had voted illegally.

I also learned that some counties had not begun their canvass yet. One of the reasons apparently is the delay in getting data from the DMV.

Many counties will take at least until Tuesday to complete their canvass.

It is my opinion that it will take longer.

The board addressed the McCrory request to consolidate the review of county protests and after much discussion decided to wait.

They approved hiring legal counsel.

They unanimously agreed to take over the Bladen County protest after revealing they already had personnel investigating there and that it probably will rise to the level of a criminal investigation.

Durham County protests were brought up but it was decided they will wait and allow normal channels to prevail.

Before making further decisions about the scope of their involvement in protests, they agreed to get further input from the counties and citizens and another meeting was scheduled for Tuesday, November 22, 2016.

From the McCrory for Governor website November 21, 2016.

“Roy Cooper Should Stop Trying To Circumvent Electoral Process

The Pat McCrory Committee issued the following statement in response to Roy Cooper’s desperate press conferences attacking Governor McCrory:

“Why is Roy Cooper so insistent on circumventing the electoral process and counting the votes of dead people and felons? It may be because he needs those fraudulent votes to count in order to win. Instead of insulting North Carolina voters, we intend to let the process work as it should to ensure that every legal vote is counted properly.” – Ricky Diaz, Governor McCrory’s campaign spokesman

Fact: The State Board of Elections discovered over 339 convicted felons who voted early or absentee. This total does not include numbers from Election Day. (News & Observer on Twitter, 11/20/2016)

Fact: Over 90 counties have yet to complete their county canvases and finalize their vote totals.

Fact: Protests are being filed in over 50 counties to challenge fraudulent absentee ballots and votes by felons, double and dead voters.(Charlotte Observer, 11/17/2016)

Fact: The State Board of Elections agreed to take up the Bladen County protest involving hundreds of potentially fraudulent absentee ballots – all apparently including votes for Cooper.”

Roy Cooper Should Stop Trying To Circumvent Electoral Process

There is a protest in Durham County about absentee ballot fraud similar to the one filed in Bladen County.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/dl.ncsbe.gov/Requests/2016_General_Election_(post)/Protests/Durham_Posthill_(Absentee_Fraud).pdf

More on the Bladen County protest.

The NC Governor race between Governor Pat McCrory and Attorney General Roy Cooper is still tight. So tight that after the canvassing Friday there are reported to be only 6,600 votes separating them. That allows a recount under NC Law.

However, the much bigger story is voter fraud being documented, investigated and protested.

“Hundreds of Fraudulent Cooper Ballots Discovered, Challenged In Bladen County

N.C. Democrat Party-Funded PAC Involved In Apparent Massive Voter Fraud Scheme”

“A formal protest has been filed with the Bladen County Board of Elections to challenge several hundred apparently fraudulent absentee ballots cast for Roy Cooper and other Democrats in Bladen County. Initial evidence laid out in the protest suggests a “massive scheme to run an absentee ballot mill involving hundreds of ballots, perpetrated by and through the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC,” a political action committee funded by the N.C. Democrat Party and other prominent statewide Democrats.

The protest, filed by Bladen County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor McCrae Dowless and corroborated by a forensic handwriting expert, notes “shocking evidence resulting from a blatant scheme to try to impact the voting results of an entire county and perhaps even sway statewide and federal elections,” including the gubernatorial race.”

“According to disclosure reports, among the largest contributors to the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC are the North Carolina Democratic Party and candidates for statewide and countywide offices, such as: Mike Morgan, Wake County district court judge and Supreme Court justice-elect; June Atkinson, superintendent of public instruction; Ken Spaulding, former gubernatorial candidate; Dan Blue III, state senator and former candidate for state treasurer; Chris Rey, mayor of Spring Lake and former candidate for U.S. Senate; G. Michael Cogdell, Bladen County commissioner.”

bladincountydnc

From the protest.

“6. Does this protest involve an irregularity or misconduct not described in number 5 above? If so, please give a detailed description of such misconduct or irregularity and name those who committed such action.
Yes. The voters of Bladen County, North Carolina, appear to be the victims of a massive scheme to run an absentee ballot mill involving hundreds of ballots, perpetrated by and through the Bladen County Improvement Association
PAC.

Upon in-person visual review of mail-in absentee ballots by a forensic handwriting expert, it appears that literally hundreds of fraudulent ballots were cast. These ballots all appear to have been cast in support of a ticket of
candidates, but in particular for a write-in candidate for the Bladen County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor. Despite the unusually large number of ballots cast for a particular write-in candidate named Franklin
Graham, it appears that out of the hundreds of ballots reviewed that voted for Mr. Graham, the handwriting on hundreds of those ballots matches only about a dozen handwriting styles.

In particular, one very active absentee ballot “witness,” Deborah Monroe, who was apparently personally validating validated at least 67 mail-in absentee ballots, appears to have written in “Franklin Graham” as a write-in candidate at
least 71 times. In further shocking evidence of this scheme, the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC filed reports with the North Carolina State Board of Elections admitting they that it paid Ms. Monroe multiple payments
totaling $550 for “G.O.T.V.” See Attachment at 8, 23, 47.

Other payments which are disclosed on Bladen County Improvement Association PAC contribution reports include
the following:

Mary Johnson, witness for 74 ballots, $450;
Lola Wooten, witness for 58 ballots, $500;
Deborah Cogdell, witness for 45 ballots (including both witnesses on 1 ballot), $300; and
Bridgette Keaton, witness for 16 ballots, $630.

While the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC has many funders, its single largest funder is the North Carolina Democratic Party, supporting the organization with a $2,500 contribution. See Attachment at 7. Not only
was the Democratic Party itself an active supporter of this organization, a number of Democratic campaigns for North Carolina state office made financial contributions to the PAC. These include the Michael Morgan Committee
contributing $1,500, backing the recently-elected Democrat North Carolina Supreme Court Justice; the Committee to Elect Dan Blue III contributing $1,000, backing the unsuccessful Democratic nominee for North Carolina
Treasurer; the Committee to Elect Robert Wilson contributing $1,000, backing the unsuccessful candidate for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor, and the Committee to Elect Judge Vince Rozier, contributing
$250, backing the unsuccessful Democratic nominee for North Carolina Court of Appeals.

Several other batches of mail-in absentee ballots of between 5 and 15 have handwriting samples that appear to match.

These are not simply helpful individuals who have attempted to assist a large swath of Bladen County’s voters to cast their ballots. This is the shocking evidence resulting from a blatant scheme to try to impact the voting results of
an entire county and perhaps even sway statewide and federal elections. This is clear from the fact that only a very few of the voter assistance sections of these mailed-in absentee ballots have been completed, despite being
completed by just a few individuals.

Therefore, it appears that a surprisingly small number of individuals were responsible for casting a very large number of ballots. Few of these ballots were properly indicated as having been completed with assistance by a third
party.

I will also be submitting a report from a Forensic Document Examiner that details much of the handwriting analysis outline above. That will be submitted under separate cover as soon as the report is completed.”

The NC Governor race between Governor Pat McCrory and Attorney General Roy Cooper is still tight. So tight that after the canvassing Friday there are reported to be only 6,600 votes separating them. That allows a recount under NC Law.

However, the much bigger story is voter fraud being documented, investigated and protested.

“Hundreds of Fraudulent Cooper Ballots Discovered, Challenged In Bladen County

N.C. Democrat Party-Funded PAC Involved In Apparent Massive Voter Fraud Scheme”

“A formal protest has been filed with the Bladen County Board of Elections to challenge several hundred apparently fraudulent absentee ballots cast for Roy Cooper and other Democrats in Bladen County. Initial evidence laid out in the protest suggests a “massive scheme to run an absentee ballot mill involving hundreds of ballots, perpetrated by and through the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC,” a political action committee funded by the N.C. Democrat Party and other prominent statewide Democrats.

The protest, filed by Bladen County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor McCrae Dowless and corroborated by a forensic handwriting expert, notes “shocking evidence resulting from a blatant scheme to try to impact the voting results of an entire county and perhaps even sway statewide and federal elections,” including the gubernatorial race.”

“According to disclosure reports, among the largest contributors to the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC are the North Carolina Democratic Party and candidates for statewide and countywide offices, such as: Mike Morgan, Wake County district court judge and Supreme Court justice-elect; June Atkinson, superintendent of public instruction; Ken Spaulding, former gubernatorial candidate; Dan Blue III, state senator and former candidate for state treasurer; Chris Rey, mayor of Spring Lake and former candidate for U.S. Senate; G. Michael Cogdell, Bladen County commissioner.”

Hundreds of Fraudulent Cooper Ballots Discovered, Challenged In Bladen County

From the protest.

“6. Does this protest involve an irregularity or misconduct not described in number 5 above? If so, please give a detailed description of such misconduct or irregularity and name those who committed such action.
Yes. The voters of Bladen County, North Carolina, appear to be the victims of a massive scheme to run an absentee ballot mill involving hundreds of ballots, perpetrated by and through the Bladen County Improvement Association
PAC.

Upon in-person visual review of mail-in absentee ballots by a forensic handwriting expert, it appears that literally hundreds of fraudulent ballots were cast. These ballots all appear to have been cast in support of a ticket of
candidates, but in particular for a write-in candidate for the Bladen County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor. Despite the unusually large number of ballots cast for a particular write-in candidate named Franklin
Graham, it appears that out of the hundreds of ballots reviewed that voted for Mr. Graham, the handwriting on hundreds of those ballots matches only about a dozen handwriting styles.

In particular, one very active absentee ballot “witness,” Deborah Monroe, who was apparently personally validating validated at least 67 mail-in absentee ballots, appears to have written in “Franklin Graham” as a write-in candidate at
least 71 times. In further shocking evidence of this scheme, the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC filed reports with the North Carolina State Board of Elections admitting they that it paid Ms. Monroe multiple payments
totaling $550 for “G.O.T.V.” See Attachment at 8, 23, 47.

Other payments which are disclosed on Bladen County Improvement Association PAC contribution reports include
the following:

Mary Johnson, witness for 74 ballots, $450;
Lola Wooten, witness for 58 ballots, $500;
Deborah Cogdell, witness for 45 ballots (including both witnesses on 1 ballot), $300; and
Bridgette Keaton, witness for 16 ballots, $630.

While the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC has many funders, its single largest funder is the North Carolina Democratic Party, supporting the organization with a $2,500 contribution. See Attachment at 7. Not only
was the Democratic Party itself an active supporter of this organization, a number of Democratic campaigns for North Carolina state office made financial contributions to the PAC. These include the Michael Morgan Committee
contributing $1,500, backing the recently-elected Democrat North Carolina Supreme Court Justice; the Committee to Elect Dan Blue III contributing $1,000, backing the unsuccessful Democratic nominee for North Carolina
Treasurer; the Committee to Elect Robert Wilson contributing $1,000, backing the unsuccessful candidate for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor, and the Committee to Elect Judge Vince Rozier, contributing
$250, backing the unsuccessful Democratic nominee for North Carolina Court of Appeals.

Several other batches of mail-in absentee ballots of between 5 and 15 have handwriting samples that appear to match.

These are not simply helpful individuals who have attempted to assist a large swath of Bladen County’s voters to cast their ballots. This is the shocking evidence resulting from a blatant scheme to try to impact the voting results of
an entire county and perhaps even sway statewide and federal elections. This is clear from the fact that only a very few of the voter assistance sections of these mailed-in absentee ballots have been completed, despite being
completed by just a few individuals.

Therefore, it appears that a surprisingly small number of individuals were responsible for casting a very large number of ballots. Few of these ballots were properly indicated as having been completed with assistance by a third
party.

I will also be submitting a report from a Forensic Document Examiner that details much of the handwriting analysis outline above. That will be submitted under separate cover as soon as the report is completed.”

Voter fraud is a fact in NC.

The only question is how widespread and how much.

The too close to call Governor race in NC could be a blessing in disguise.

Supposedly all precincts have completed their counts and reported them to the State Board of Elections.

I find that hard to believe with the amount of provisional and absentee ballots to process.

The Durham County scenario of faulty machine components and alleged verification also seems suspicious.

There is reason to believe that voter fraud has occurred.

Regardless of the outcome, I hope that all fraud is exposed.

A recount will probably occur since the spread is well below the threshold of 10,000 votes.

Governor McCrory will also be challenging the validity of votes cast in many if not all counties.

Here is the latest from the NC State Board of Elections.

SBE: Statement on County Canvasses

 

RALEIGH, N.C. – This release serves to update the public on the status of general election results and certain processes now underway across the state.

County Canvass

State law established Friday (Nov. 18) as the date for local certification of election results in the state’s 100 counties. This initial canvass of results confirms that all votes have been counted and tabulated correctly. That is followed by a final certification of statewide totals by the State Board of Elections. Counties may, however, delay canvass for a “reasonable time” if the initial counting has not been completed. Many, if not all, counties are expected to do just that.

Postponing canvass is necessary when certain decisions have not been made regarding provisional ballots, certain types of election protests are pending, or a delay is necessary to comply with a judicial order. The counties have good reason to extend their canvasses this year, including a recent court order.

In the final days of early voting, a federal court required election officials and the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to create a new review process for certain voters who claim they registered or changed their address at the DMV, even if no record of registration could be found.  The State Board acted immediately to create necessary procedures and to print special materials for North Carolina’s 2,700 precincts in the week before Election Day. The order requires counties to approve a provisional ballot if the voter affirms she either registered or changed her address at the DMV, unless DMV can locate a signed form declining voter registration services during a certain period of time. The process of locating that data remains ongoing.

Recounts

After counties canvass, a statewide candidate who trails by 10,000 votes or fewer may demand a recount by noon on the second business day. If a recount is demanded, the counties would conduct recounts individually in public view.

The State Board of Elections is scheduled to meet at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, for the statewide canvass.

Protests

Meanwhile, a number of election protests have been filed with county boards of elections across the state. If the protest concerns the counting of ballots, county boards should meet as soon as possible to determine whether there is probable cause that a violation or irregularity occurred. If so, the boards will conduct a full hearing on the protest. Protests can result in different outcomes, including dismissal, re-tabulation, or other options spelled out in G.S. § 163-182.10. Appeals are to the State Board of Elections.

The State Board of Elections works with 100 County Boards of Elections to ensure elections are conducted lawfully and fairly. “The canvassing process ensures that elections are fair and results are reliable,” said Kim Westbrook Strach, executive director of the State Board. “This agency will do what is necessary to protect the integrity of the election and give confidence to all North Carolinians.”

From Reuters November 18, 2016.

“Claims of votes by the dead, felons cloud North Carolina governor race

North Carolina’s gubernatorial race was undecided 10 days after the Nov. 8 vote and new allegations by the Republican incumbent’s campaign about felons and dead people casting ballots could leave the outcome in limbo for weeks.

Republican Governor Pat McCrory, trailing Democratic challenger Roy Cooper by about 6,300 votes according to the state elections website Friday afternoon, has not conceded. Under state law, Friday was the deadline for counties to certify their results.

But challenges over the validity of hundreds of votes and reviews of provisional ballots were expected to delay the reports from many, if not all, of the state’s 100 counties, elections officials said.”

“”There’s additional cases of voter fraud being discovered each day,” he said in a phone interview.

If McCrory trails by 10,000 or fewer votes once counties submit their final tallies, he could demand a recount.”

From Fox News November 16, 2016.

“The fraud concerns emerged in a separate local election in Bladen County, where officials have acknowledged “overtly similar” handwriting on several hundred absentee ballots.

While a formal complaint was filed by the winner of that local supervisor race, the McCrory campaign alleges some evidence suggests a group associated with the state Democratic Party may have paid people to cast votes for a write-in Democrat in that race and every other Democrat on the ballot, including Cooper.

Campaign official Ricky Diaz on Wednesday cited evidence suggesting potentially similar situations in other counties, though he declined to say whether this suggests voter fraud is widespread enough to impact the gubernatorial election.

“It warrants scrutiny,” he said. “We fully expect it will be looked at.” ”

From Phil Berger for Senate April 2, 2014.
“Tillis, Berger Issue Joint Statement On Newly Discovered, Alarming Evidence Of Voter Error And Fraud”

“Raleigh, N.C. – House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-Mecklenburg) and Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) issued a joint statement Wednesday in response to more alarming evidence of voter error and fraud discovered by the North Carolina State Board of Elections.

Initial findings from the Board presented to the Joint Legislative Elections Oversight Committee today show:

  • 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.

These findings only take into account data from the 28 states who participated in the 2014 Interstate Crosscheck, leaving out potential voter error and fraud in the 22 states that do not participate in the consortium.

Additionally, during an audit of death records from the Department of Health and Human Services, the Board discovered:

  • 50,000 new death records that had not previously been provided to the State Board of Elections.
  • 13,416 deceased voters on the voter rolls in October 2013.
  • 81 deceased voters that had voter activity after they died.

The findings were made possible by a new election reform law passed by the General Assembly last year, which called on the Board to improve the accuracy of voter registration lists and combat potential fraud by cross checking information on voting records with those of other states.

“While we are alarmed to hear evidence of widespread voter error and fraud, we are encouraged to see the common-sense law passed to ensure voters are who they say they are is working,” said Tillis and Berger. “These findings should put to rest ill-informed claims that problems don’t exist and help restore the integrity of our elections process. We appreciate the State Board of Elections bringing this critical information to light.””

“VOTER FRAUD? YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET!”

“Filmmaker James O’Keefe exposes ‘total liars’ in undercover video”

“North Carolina is the latest state featured by Project Veritas in its series on how America’s electoral system is extremely vulnerable to voter fraud. During last week’s North Carolina primary, James O’Keefe and his colleagues demonstrated how easy it is to obtain ballots even if the person has publicly professed not to be a U.S. citizen.

Poll workers insist that the ridiculously dressed activists do not need to show identification or a passport. The video further shows an election official telling Project Veritas that it’s “up to the public” to expose voter fraud.

O’Keefe also tells WND about his group’s visit to the University of North Carolina, where a dean and a program director laugh off confessions of voter fraud and even seem to encourage it. Yet a day later, both officials tell conservatives that voter fraud never happens.

“We’re trying to highlight the hypocrisy of these individuals and their inablility to do the right thing,” O’Keefe told WND.

And Project Veritas catches up with an election official who says he can no longer agree to uphold the state constitution in his oath since voters passed the amendment establishing only traditional marriage as the definition of marriage in the state.”
