Thousands of North Carolina Voters Double-Voted, Watchdog Group Finds

Vote Fraud is as American as apple pie—and as prevalent.  In Texas, they are prosecuting dozens of vote fraud cases.  In New Jersey whole city council race has to be re-run.  In North Carolina thousands of people voted TWICE.  In California we have illegal aliens and the dead voting.  Corruption?  Honest Elections?  Not anymore.  We have become a Banana Republic.

Thousands of voters in North Carolina voted twice in one or both of the past two elections, according to a court filing in the key battleground state.

Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity group, announced Thursday that it had filed a brief in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina outlining the number of double votes. 

Were election results changed due to this corruption?  Doubt if we will definitively know—but it looks like it.  Corrupt elections are the real cause of voter suppression—why vote if you know that fraud will win the day?

Thousands of voters in North Carolina voted twice in one or both of the past two elections, according to a court filing in the key battleground state.

Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity group, announced Thursday that it had filed a brief in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina outlining the number of double votes. 

A total of 16,700 duplicate votes were cast in the 2016 and 2018 elections, according to an audit by the watchdog group based on public records. 

North Carolina was home to a disputed voter fraud case in 2018. 

Public Interest Legal Foundation made the court filing in the case of Democracy NC et. al. v. North Carolina State Board of Elections, which seeks to suspend North Carolina’s protections for mail-in voters during the presidential election in November in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Specifically, the state’s public voter rolls show that even with election integrity mechanisms in place, voters registered in more than one precinct are credited for voting a second ballot. 

This could be an individual voting twice or someone voting while using someone else’s identity. Such cases largely have resulted from poor maintenance of voter rolls at the local level—for example, not updating the rolls when voters move. 

The audit found that in the 2016 presidential election in North Carolina, about 9,700 voters were credited with voting twice. Of these cases, about half—or 5,000—were mail-in ballots.

Two years later, during the 2018 midterm election, about 7,000 voters were credited with voting twice. Of those, 2,900 were mail-in votes, the audit says.     

It is not clear how many of the same voters voted twice in both elections. 

In one of the most high-profile voter fraud cases in recent years, the North Carolina State Board of Elections decertified the outcome of the 2018 race in the 9th Congressional District and ordered a new election after evidence of absentee ballot fraud emerged. 

In that race, 61% of all mailed votes were cast for Republican Mark Harris over Democrat Dan McCready, although only 16% of those requesting a ballot were Republicans. In the new election, Republican Dan Bishop stepped in as the party nominee and won.

“This is a widespread concern in North Carolina,” J. Christian Adams, president and general counsel of Public Interest Legal Foundation, said in a written statement. “We should be talking about how to strengthen our systems against misdeeds done out of the sight of election officials in 2020 instead of defending an imperfect system from total ruin.”

Those suing, Adams said,  “are only raising the threat of worsening the settled fact that voter fraud is most common in the mail.”

The lawsuit in North Carolina by Democracy NC, the League of Women Voters, and others calls for waiving requirements that voter registration forms be submitted 25 days before an election,  eliminating the witness signature on absentee ballots, allowing ballots to be received in ways other than mail, such as contactless dropboxes, and increasing early voting.

    This comes under the heading of “What’s New?”

    This has been going on on college campus for decades. The students with the open help of the Confederate Democrats have helped this repeatedly. The Students joke about how many times they vote.

    Then there is the Hispanic Community that has been sold a bill of goods. They are told they will be able to get everything they want if they allow their ballots to be harvested without being filled out or being told how to vote.

    You “I don’t have time to pay attention” Republicans, and liars called Democrats have to figure out what you want. Do you want an honest system? If so you have to stop allowing intentional lies (on both sides) to give you justification for voting Socialist that eventually leads to centralized dictatorial government that takes you money and freedoms.

    JUST A SUGGESTION:i
    Considering that Gov. Newsom has forced us into vote by mail, If you receive multiple election ballots sent to you this November, keep one and use the other. Then send the duplicate to your County Republican Office.

    • This is a democracy and until we have a military form of identification for voting we will never have a fair election. California has not had a fair election for over 20 years and Newsom demands we vote by mail. You and I both know why, it is called harvest the one you don’t like.
