A new report out of Raleigh by state election officials shows that voter fraud is a problem in the state, and makes a compelling case as to why voter ID laws are more than just a “common sense” idea to ensure integrity at the polls.
The report, released Wednesday by Elections Director Kim Strach, showed that at least 81 people have a voting history that extends well beyond the day that they died and another 13,416 deceased people who are registered to vote, but that’s not all.
According to WNCN:
“The audit showed 155,692 registered North Carolina voters whose first and last names, dates of birth and last four digits of their Social Security number match those of voters registered in other states, but who most recently registered or voted elsewhere.
A total of 35,750 voters with matching first and last names and date of birth were registered in North Carolina and another state, and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
Another 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, date of birth and last four digits of their Social Security number were registered and voted in the 2012 general election in North Carolina and another state.”
36,000 people voting in two different states is a pretty big deal and is worth taking actions to prevent it from happening again, which Rep. David Lewis who’s the Chairman of the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee agrees with.
“We have fraud and error vulnerabilities in our election system. The fact that we potentially have thousands of people voting in more than one state greatly concerns me,” he said.
The data that the report analyzed was only able to be crosschecked with 28 other states and left 22 missing, so how many more could be added?
As Guy Benson from Townhall.com reported, in a state where Obama won by only 15,000 votes in 2008, 36,000 fraudulent votes makes a huge difference, and it’s only in one state.
He also pointed out that the Chairwoman of the Democratic Party openly celebrated a recent court victory where a judge blocked a state’s right to purge their voter rolls of ineligible and non-citizen voters, which the Democrats seem to love.

As I’m sure you all know, more participation in Democrat’s eyes means getting every living, breathing person to the polls regardless if they’re allowed to vote or not, and as this latest report out of my home state of North Carolina shows they don’t even care if they’re breathing.
Let’s not forget, their guest of honor at a recent event was a woman who was convicted of voter fraud and served eight months in jail. Their message to her was “Welcome Home,” so what does that tell you?
So do you think this makes an excellent case for voter ID laws or is it not enough of a problem to worry about? Let us know with a comment, we love your feedback!
