At the end of May, the Virginia Voters Alliance (VVA) and Election Integrity Maryland (EIM) turned over a file to each of the State Boards of Elections containing both Virginia and Maryland data of people that appeared to be registered in both states. The file contained 43,893 duplicate voters that appeared to be registered to vote in both states, and there was an additional list of 164 voters that appeared to have voted in both states during the 2012 Presidential election.
The Fairfax County Electoral Board asked for and received subset lists of voters that reside in Fairfax County. VVA provided to Fairfax County 10,696 duplicate registrations and 17 apparent duplicate voters. The Fairfax Board has been aggressively investigating the 17 apparent duplicate voters along with cooperation of the Montgomery County Board; the investigation resulted in all 17 (100%) being identified by their full name, DOB and SSN, demonstrating the immense value and validity of VVA and EIM’s work in this important area.
The Maryland Board of Elections, by contrast, has failed to respond to the confirmations of these dual voters, as well as to do its due diligence to investigate, report, and prosecute clearly illegal, fraudulent voting practices that are in direct violation of federal law and the voting procedures of the United States. This latest data underscores the continued calls for Maryland to correct and update its current system to ensure flagrant dual registrations and other fraudulent electoral behaviors are no longer able to occur.
The VVA obtained the voter data for the SBE of Virginia and Maryland and the data was loaded onto a powerful server maintained by rVotes in Rhode Island. As of this press release, neither board has provided EIM or VVA with updates regarding the status of these parallel investigations
VVA has been asked by several more counties in Virginia to help them in challenging their local boards in investigating duplicate registrations and voters in their county. VVA has also been asked by several states on the eastern seaboard to conduct additional private crosscheck investigations, since their state refuses to participate in the free Interstate Crosscheck capability offered by the Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach.
The Brennen Center will have to change their talking points … again. A year or so ago they had to stop claiming that voter fraud did not exist because there were too many reported cases, mainly by voter integrity groups like the VVA and EIM and conservative media like Fox News and Watchdog-Virginia.
Their second talking point was the denial that voter impersonation fraud exists. We knew this was not true and we were able to prove it by this finding. Their next point will be that voter fraud is such a small percentage of the overall vote; such voter fraud should be ignored. What percentage of the overall vote is tolerable for Progressives? VVA believes we should have zero tolerance for voter fraud in our elections.
Many people think voter fraud only occurs between Democrats and Republicans. That is not true. There is Republican-on-Republican voter fraud, as evidenced by what went on in Mississippi in the Cochran/McDaniel Senate primary race, as well as the slating of conservatives here in Virginia. Or, if you want to hear how Democrat-on-Democrat voter fraud is used as an election weapon, talk to Artur Davis, the former US representative from Birmingham, Alabama or examine the recent primary elections in New Mexico.
Virginians, and indeed the American people, need to wake up and demand that we have open and honest elections; otherwise, when no one trusts our elections, we will lose our Constitutional Republic.
