Allowing same-day voter registration and voting on Election Day by people using out-of-state identification might appear a little dodgy to some. But not the State of New Hampshire. Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State and Vice Chairman of the Presidential Commission on Election Integrity (recently created by President Trump to investigate voter fraud), has announced that on Election Day in New Hampshire last November, 6,540 people did exactly that. They registered and voted, using out-of-state driver licenses for identification without any concern by the State of New Hampshire.
Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire’s four Electoral Votes by 2,732 votes. Kelly Ayotte, the incumbent U.S. Senator, lost her re-election by a mere 1,017 votes.
Now this doesn’t prove there was voter fraud, more investigation needs to be done. Kobach contends that, “It seems that they never were bona fides residents of the State.”
The voter fraud deniers are already deluging social media with claims that it was out-of-state students! That it is normal. Well, that’s possible.
According to an internet search:
More than half of the nation’s graduates stay relatively close to home. Fifty eight percent of high school graduates attend college within 100 miles of their hometown, while 72 percent stay in-state, according to Niche Ink. Only 11 percent of students venture more than 500 miles from their hometown.
And the number of college students in New Hampshire, excluding community colleges, is about 108,000. The state which sends the most students to New Hampshire is Massachusetts.
I know a student attending school in Boston, but she didn’t register to vote in Massachusetts. She uses a California vote-by-mail ballot.
I imagine that they have investigated the addresses of the newly registered New Hampshire voters, and checked to see if they actually live in New Hampshire, and if they also voted in the state that issued their driver license.
The social media and main stream news coverage of the tearful denials of voter fraud will amplify the discussion and have the same effect as the talk about building a border wall. The talk alone has slowed illegal immigration. The talk alone about enforcement of our immigration laws has led to self-deportations. And the talk of investigating voter fraud will result in a reduction there too. We already have seen hundreds in Colorado asked to be taken off the voter registration rolls after the creation of the Commission on Election Integrity was announced.
Now to deter voter fraud in next year’s mid-term elections, they must really emphasis the fact that voter fraud is being seriously investigated. We need to see some arrests, and the alleged perpetrators charged with enough crimes that convictions will result in many years in jail, and then offer plea deals. Get some of them to cooperate and roll over on the organizers of voter fraud and then get that into the media.
The registrar of voters cannot tell you who the voter cast their vote for, but they can absolutely tell you if they voted. And that’s all we need to know.
Let the good times roll.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
