It’s very telling that most conservatives view a dirty voter roll as if it’s a hot bag of poisonous snakes, while liberals view it as a wonderful opportunity. That’s why Democrats will go to any lengths to avoid cleaning up a dirty voter roll. It’s important between now and November for every swing state from the 2020 election to do as much as much as possible to clean up their voter rolls.
That goes for many red states as well. A public interest research group has just released its findings on red-state North Carolina. What they discovered was something that Democrats will view as another great opportunity for future elections.
Just how dirty are the voter rolls in North Carolina? Well, they’re not as bad as Wisconsin’s. But they’re still very bad, according to the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF). The group just completed a review of North Carolina’s rolls, and here’s what they found.
First, they discovered 7,933 people who had died years ago, but were still registered to vote during the 2020 election. They include pictures of the gravestones of some of these people in the report, just to drive the point home. One example they highlighted was a woman who passed away in 2003, and a man who died back in 1997, when Bill Clinton was office. There’s no good reason for these 7,933 people to still be on North Carolina’s voter rolls. It only opens up the possibility for Democrat Party election fraud.
Next, PILF found that 42,984 voters moved out of North Carolina prior to the 2020 election and still remained on the voter rolls, despite registering to vote in their new states. That’s a lot of people. It represents a lot of “opportunity” for the Democrat Party, and it’s a problem that needs to be fixed, especially since the state now appears to want to do mass cheat-by-mail voting.
Finally, the group discovered 13,525 voters who were able to register twice, using only slight variations of their names. For example, one person registered to vote as “D’Angelo Harris” and as “DAngelo Harris.” Another woman registered twice using the names “Karen Defazio” and “Karen De Fazio.” And another was registered as “Jenny Taylor” and “Jenny Taylor-Smith.”
All of the duplicate registrations had the exact same birth dates and physical mailing addresses, because they were the same people. It’s safe to assume that since state election officials didn’t notice the duplications, those people each received two ballots in 2020, representing 27,050 votes instead of 13,525.
You might think, “What’s the big deal? North Carolina is a reliably red state that Donald Trump won by 74,483 votes in 2020.”
When you total up all the potentially fraudulent voting opportunities created by North Carolina’s dirty voter rolls, it comes to 77,967 votes. That’s enough fake votes to sway almost every US House race in North Carolina (with one exception), a US Senate race, or a presidential race, if the Democrats make a move to use those fake registrations.
The really bothersome thing about this report is that Republicans in the North Carolina state legislature – who presumably are supposed to have oversight of the Secretary of State and election operations – didn’t have a clue that this problem existed.
North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall is a lifelong Democrat politician who used to serve in the state senate. Do you think she knew these vulnerabilities existed in the dirty voter rolls that she’s been in charge of maintaining for over 20 years? She’s now in her sixth term as Secretary of State, an office she’s held since 1997. She doesn’t seem to be in a big hurry to correct the problems with the very voter rolls that are her responsibility.
The good news is that Republicans in the North Carolina state legislature have plenty of time to correct the problem before the November midterms. They can put pressure on the Secretary of State to clean up those dirty voter rolls or impeach her for dereliction of duty and replace with someone who will.
And how many other red states do you suppose have this exact same problem? I’m guessing North Carolina isn’t the only one. Republican voters need to keep holding their state lawmakers’ feet to the fire on election integrity issues, because the problem is huge and it won’t go away on its own.
