Grassroots activists organizing to battle incompetence and fraud in the election process

And, as we all know this is the year to at least begin waging the battle.

Writing at American Thinker, Janet Levy, discusses the elements in place on the Left that increasingly come in play to direct election outcomes.   To understand the seriousness of the fraud and how the US Justice Department selectively prosecutes voter fraud, you should all read J. Christian Adams book, “Injustice.

Levy:

Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department, a recent book by J. Christian Adams, provides shocking evidence of DOJ racial bias toward minorities and the failure to apply federal law in a race-neutral fashion.  A five-year DOJ Voting Rights Section veteran, Adams cites his firsthand experience with officials who sought to promote a radical racialist agenda and who knowingly violated the National Voting Rights Act (NVRA).  Adams sounds an alarm, arguing that the values and actions pursued by the DOJ jeopardize our constitutional republic and endanger America’s core principles of government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

Violations of the voting process depicted in Adams’ book are manifold and include incompetence, fraud, partisanship, and intimidation or thuggery.  These rampant and pervasive problems warrant serious interventions to curb abuses of a right Americans hold sacrosanct.  Fortunately, citizens’ groups are becoming more involved in elections and have recognized the need to do more to protect the rights of the electorate under the law.

Maryland is one state which has virtually nothing in place to clean up voter rolls:

Further, no methodology exists in Maryland, and perhaps other states, to update voter rolls when residents sell their homes, move, or change residences, according to Cathy Kelleher, president of Election Integrity Maryland, a nonprofit grassroots organization dedicated to cleaning up voting rolls and training volunteers to be poll watchers.  Although voters may submit a form, it may or may not be used to make the necessary changes, says Kelleher.  She cites examples of multiple families listed as residing and voting at one address.  She has found cases in which registered voters’ addresses were actually an open field or a parking lot, in which property demolitions were not taken into account, and in which voter lists contained the names of deceased persons who formerly resided at a local nursing home.

True the Vote to the rescue!

Grassroots groups have entered the fray to address this serious threat to our constitutional republic and this undermining of the power of the people to determine representative leadership.  The most extensive and prominent organization of this type is the Houston-based True the Vote (TTV).  TTV was founded in 2009 by Catherine Engelbrecht, who says that “True the Vote was founded to provide a coordinated program through which American citizens can participate in the support of free and fair elections.”

Engelbrecht recognized the need to remedy problems in the voting process.  With TTV leadership, she has identified opportunities for intervention: monitoring voter registration and validating its legitimacy, verifying voter-roll accuracy, ensuring that citizens know their rights, and improving competence through proper training of poll workers.  TTV began to track and chronicle their observations and chart pervasive problems in order to improve the process and spearhead election law changes.  The organization has uncovered gross incompetence, massive fraud, blatant lack of checks and balances on absentee ballots, and other serious impediments to a free and fair election process.

True the Vote has succeeded in expanding its reach to include citizen-led voter integrity projects in 32 states and has spawned other organizations such as Election Integrity Maryland.

Read Levy’s whole article here, see how groups like the League of Women Voters are part of the problem.

Some of you attended a meeting to hear about Election Integrity Maryland in Hagerstown recently—others in other parts of the state.

They need volunteers to work in each county to help clean up voter rolls and to be trained as poll watchers.  Go here for the next poll watcher training meetings.   Also contact EIM to find out how you can be trained to help clean up voter rolls from the comfort of your home.

  1. I think the League of Women Voters used to be impartial when they ran the presidential debates. I was shocked in 1988 when they announced they would no longer host the debates. Their press release raised more questions than it answered:

    “The League of Women Voters is withdrawing its sponsorship of the presidential debate scheduled for mid-October because the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetuate a fraud on the American Voter,” League President Nancy M. Neuman said today.

    “It has become clear to us that the candidates’ organizations aim to add debates to their list of campaign-trail charades devoid of substance, spontaneity and honest answers to tough questions,” Neuman said. “The League has no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American public.”

    • I don’t know about this, the press release, but the League went Left and discredited themselves…
