Squadrons form for voter ID fight

by Cristina Marcos - The Hill
October 25, 2014

Liberal and conservative groups are mobilizing armies of poll watchers to battle over the enforcement of voter ID laws on Election Day.

The Democratic Party has more to lose if turnout is low on Nov. 4. Liberals want to ensure that the young, black and Latino voters who form a key part of the party’s electoral base are not kept from the polls.

Conservatives insist that they just want to uphold the integrity of the electoral process by making sure that all votes cast are legitimate.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has state directors stationed across the country for its Voter Expansion Project. They help train poll workers, and work with local election officials to clarify how laws will be implemented.

“This has been a really big effort,” DNC spokesman Michael Czin said.

    baDGes …we don’t need no stinkin’ baDGes !

    One thing that bugged me in the state voter’s pamphlet is a notice that said the voter rights law says that it must be available in different languages upon request. Only citizens are allowed to vote, and to become a citizen the person is required to read and write English. Therefore, there should be no reason to print the voter’s pamphlet in any foreign language. The only exception should be Braille.

  • wishladya says:

    I would hope that speaking English would be a pre-requisite for voting anywhere in the US! If they need interpretation, they are not legal residents!

    1. I Seigel says:

      Some of the initiatives and referendums that states have on their ballots can be very confusing, even for people who are native English speakers. If English isn’t your native language, you might not be able to clearly understand everything that’s on a ballot. There are thousands of people from over a hundred countries that become citizens here every year. They are allowed to vote. The law says that they are entitled to ballots so that they can understand them. Just like another law that says the voting booth has to be accessible to anyone, including those with disabilities.

    In our county, we cannot get Republicans to man the polls…that leaves the Dems in charge at the polls….and we know what happens then!

      That’s not the way it is on Maui, where are you from?

        1. donjusko says:

          You have to let your GOP base know that you are having a problem with recruiting PC’s (Poll Workers). They surely don’t know of the problem.

          1. keepyourpower says:

            Oh They know the problem..it was brought up in our County meeting. But no one would raise their hand. I cannot work the polls. I did once, and go so ill, I could not work, again. I have a condition…that if I sit out in the sun, OR under florescent lighting….I get very ill! I have a medical excuse..but the others…I doubt it.

          2. donjusko says:

            I searched fluorescent medical and direct fluorescent medical tests and found a lot, nothing about adverse effects from fluorescent light directly though. I searched because after the chem-trail spraying I became very sensitive to the sun also.

            “Diagnostic medical test Direct fluorescent antibody sputum test including diseases and symptoms diagnosed or ruled out by this test.”

            I can’t find anything harmful happening with fluorescents, perhaps your doctor can help me. What symptoms did you have? I have completely ruled out whooping cough. These Pertussis tests are used to detect and diagnose a Bordetella pertussis (whooping cough) infection.

          3. keepyourpower says:

            I have porphyria. I have the inherited kind..but you can develop it from certain chemicals. Tell your doctor about porphyria. Research it. I could not find a doctor who gave a dam! Even the so-called specialists. You can have testing done at Mayo clinic, for the best results. Your doctor can send your specimens to Mayo, if you insist. But then again…if you have Obamcare…I doubt they will let you. Get Liberty Health Share and they will help you.

    I say we are down to two choices either fight fire with fire and steal the election back or states have to start breaking away from the union . Contact your state legislators and let your feelings be known

    Democrats are desperately prohibiting the voters’ ID law because they will never win the election without fraud. They won the 2008, and 2012, with rampant fraud applied. Documentary of James O’Keefe disclosed various fraudulent schemes that democrats used. Why are democrats so dishonest, using evil schemes to win? they want greed of money and power and they are all crooks. I have lost my respect to any democrat elected people, and these democrat candidates now doing schemes to cheat again.

    1. ItsJo says:

      True post disqus which is WHY they detest the idea of Voter ID’s, and actually sued states that passed Voter ID’s be required, like Pennsylvania. Obama and Holder sued Pa. after the people VOTED for having Voter ID’s. This crooked regime of cheats/liars/theives is so damn disgusting, and they will try it ALL OVER AGAIN. This time, I hope that NO STATE accepts anything LESS than a recount.
      It was cheating that got Al Franken in over Coleman, as when losing to Coleman, ‘all of a sudden, thousands of votes were found in the trunk of a car and those votes were all for Franken. So he “Knew he STOLE that Election, and I hope this time, HE LOSES, along with the other DemoThug Cheats.

      well John that is just it, remember the Democrats “motor voter” initiative? That puts illegals in the booth, and that is why we were against it then and why we are still against giving Illegal drivers licenses. If you can identify an Illegal, they should be in cuffs and not in the voting booth.

      1. John Barleycorn says:


        1. reggie says:

          Yup, then we have the ken king for life.

          1. donjusko says:

            Sounds like a positive negative to me reggie, you sound like the war is already lost.

    2. disqus_BAvz0LV7zw says:

      Congress must revise the constitution. Currently only US citizens could vote, but democrats cheat by using dead people, illegal aliens, or voting several times. They must also be required that they pay federal income taxes. All handouts must not be allowed to vote!

      1. John Barleycorn says:


      2. I Seigel says:

        This seems to be a popular idea, considering how many “up” votes you’ve gotten!
        So people would have to pay federal income taxes in order to be eligible to vote. So students over 18 who either don’t work or don’t make enough to have to file their taxes wouldn’t be allowed to vote? Retired people who have no taxable income? How about millionaires who deduct everything and hide their accounts in the Cayman Islands so they don’t have to pay taxes? They don’t get to vote either? How about clergymen, or American Indians? Or anyone that files their taxes but doesn’t owe anything or gets a full refund? No voting, huh?

        1. Steve Thomas says:

          Make the law- Have filed a tax return or been claimed on a parent’s return.

          1. I Seigel says:

            And in the next breath, you’ll say to get rid of the IRS. So now you’re making the IRS the keeper of the database of all voters?! That’s really interesting. Why not just make the voter database anyone that has the mandated Obamacare health coverage?

      3. Dan S. says:

        You must be a liberal troll if you think the constitution must be revised. The constitution is NOT a living, breathing document that can be changed at anyone’s whim. It is a document that governs our nation. It does NOT change every time anyone farts.

        1. RadioFreeKansas says:

          Ahh..then you must be one of those who also believes Blacks are only 3/5th the value of a white man, women and those under 21 years old should not vote. Are we allowed to drink alcohol in your world?

          1. Dan S. says:

            No man, you got it all wrong, In my world blacks and whites are equal, just the way God created us and intended us to be. Also, women and those under the age of 21 SHOULD vote and you may drink if that is your thing. I am a veteran who feels very strongly about the U.S. constitution. There is no reason to change it just because the libturds want to allow illegals the “right” to vote.

  • LastBestHope says:

    Don’t allow illegal voters to keep the Democrats in power.

    “Scott Brown urgently needs your help in his fight to stop Obama’s amnesty and protect our national security. Open borders billionaire Mark Zuckerberg is spending one million dollars to defeat Scott Brown. He knows that a Scott Brown victory is a massive defeat for Obama’s extreme immigration policies. Scott Brown’s opponent in this race, on the other hand, is a reliable vote for Obama’s immigration policies and his desire to bring in millions of new low-wage workers to compete for your jobs and wages.”

    Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) called this election the “epicenter” of the fight to stop Obama’s planned executive amnesty, in which the president plans to legalize and grant work authorization to upwards of five million illegal immigrants in America right after the election.


    1. John Henry says:

      The News that Fox reported on this morning that 6% of all ballots cast in the last election were by illegals and that alone was enough to change the results in favor of Democrats … then there is the SEIU and the rigged electronic voting machines, that are still casting votes for Democrats no matter what or who you actually choose.

      Elections are not fair if they are rigged, voter fraud, illegals voting and fixed voting machines are all rigging, time to put them to an end before they end us.

      1. LastBestHope says:

        In FL you vote in an assigned precinct and must show a valid ID. That works.

        The problem with FL comes when the votes are tallied by each county ….and each county has wildly different levels of competence and/or honesty.

        But yes, you are right….every vote that is fraudulent disenfranchises a legal voter.

        1. donjusko says:

          Have a cop and lawyer on standby to arrest anyone doing anything illegal.

          1. I Seigel says:

            ALWAYS! EVERYWHERE! And video cameras EVERYWHERE! Does that go for stuff like littering and jaywalking, too? And going more than 5 miles over the speed limit? Yes, I, too, want to live in Mayberry!

      2. ItsJo says:

        All votes Need to be verified and Until they are, when fraud is found Demo/Thugs LOSE THAT VOTE, and that person should be jailed for Fraud. Soros owned a company SCYTL, that counted the votes from Spain, I believe….that ALONE SCREAMS of CHEATING by that Evil PuppeMaster to Obama, his puppet. Enough of this-VERIFY EACH VOTER, AND IF THEY DON’T HAVE LEGITIMATE ID- THEY ARE UNABLE TO VOTE. DEMS WILL SCREAM OF COURSE, BUT ENOUGH OF THEIR “CHEATING TO WIN AT ALL COSTS” …..
        Duplicate, voting, cheats, etal should be Arrested And Pay a HEAVY FINE.

      3. I Seigel says:

        Wow, the BS Machine on both sides is in full operation. The “other” side’s media has been reporting all kinds of conspiracies to rig voting machines in favor of Republicans. And, of course, all the stories about illegal gerrymandering, curbing of early voting, etc. So there you have it. Neither side trusts the other, both sides think the other is cheating. And who is actually “winning”? FOX, and an Australian named Rupert Murdoch. As Mr Ouelette, a poster here, says often, “Good luck America”.

      4. dkb148 says:

        I’m in Texas and it pleased me greatly when I was required to present my valid picture I.D. in order to cast my vote. I triple checked my ballot before I hit the “cast” button just to make sure the demonazi gremlin didn’t play interference on my selections. It seemed to be good…
