Confirmed: Dead people can easily vote when you don’t ask them to show ID

Here we have a prime example of why requiring voters to show ID at the ballot box is important, and a common-sense safeguard against fraud. Good grief, the Project Veritas decoys in this video didn’t even have to know their own addresses. They just had to confirm them when the precinct workers read them out loud. The only thing they had to worry about was the off-chance one of them might recognize the deceased’s name, but overall it is clear that this type of scheme is way too easy to pull off.

  1. I lived in Cook County (Chicago) for 45 years and this is nothing new.

    Vote early and vote often

    You can always dig up more supporters.

  2. Seriously… Lets get this straight. NH has never had a voter fraud problem. For one to work like the one O’Keefe’s to work thousands of people would have to have died since the October list is trued up, the number of dead have to be significant enough to change the election and a conspiracy of unreal proportions needs to be arranged where hundreds of people need to agree to commit fraud and participate flawlessly. No more than a few could get caught or the event fails.

    To prevent this kind of singularity the Republicans want to spent millions of tax payer dollars and force people to get an ID. They want to add bureaucracy and government, spend your money (Think TSA security theater and scanners) while proclaiming smaller government. They are quick to spend our money to solve nonexistent problems in order to limit your freedom. Who is paying for O’Keefe to do this stuff?

    1. how do you come up with cost of millions to tax payers?.. do you not have a photo id by now, at your own expense? such as a drivers permit.. when i lived here in ohio and in the past in indiana i have had to show id. it was never difficult for me a conservative to do so. it must be a liberal handicap to show id

      1. Not everyone owns a car or drives. Since driving is a privilege the state requires you to pass a test and pay for a license. Voting on the other hand is a constitutional right. By placing a burden to provide officially approved ID the state has now placed a burden on the voter to obtain. Since the state shouldn’t charge for it – they will use tax dollars to create the internal bureaucracy to make the IDs available. Additionally the stat will then set the bar by which you can access this ID. Maybe make it available in only 2 locations in the state and at hours not available to people who work by the clock. This is an undue burden to fix a non existent problem. There is only one purpose and that is to isolate a particular set of people from voting.

        It’s not a “liberal handicap” it’s obviously a your inability to see beyond yourself.

        1. i am not blind. i have documentation of who i am before i ever graduated from high school “1974” due to employment requirement to have an ssn#. to open any bank account a person must show who they are. to rent, to purchase a home you must have proper id. just this past may while out in salt lake city i lost my wallet wiht my id. just try boarding a plane without photo id.. any way the great organization of the TSA stated i am who i say i am, after answering a thousand questions. so yes show proper id to vote

          1. Again the entire problem you wish to fix is non existent. The people who fix elections are doing it where they have the largest return on their risk. Coordinating thousands of people to vote using dead names which might appear on registries and then keep it quiet is a low return for the great risk and probability of failure (jail). No the real fixing is being done at the electronic voting machine and the tally computers.

            You are aware that 90% of all electronic voting machines were manufactured by Diebold and ES&S. Both companies run by two people who happen to be brothers and strongly affiliated with the Republican party. It has been physically demonstrated how easy it is to fix the voting electronically and that by design you get no receipt. So keep thinking it’s “dead people” while the real issue is electronic manipulation at the top.

            An again… you keep thinking like the entire country has you finances and live at your level. Yeah… everyone has to have a bank account (no photo required – not a KYC – Know your customer requirement), a SSN card (no photo needed), or has ever been on an airport. You apparently don’t understand that there is no problem with voter fraud in this country to begin with and that this is a diversion.

  3. I learned this from LBJ, as a 16 year old Democrat. When I became a GOP, I looked at dates of birth, to see if man was as old as it said. For a brief time, we were able to check against Driver license. Ann Richards ended that. Perry has worked to stop that. What has anyone else done? This whole election is such a pain, it reminds me of the USSR. One candidate, and death if you refuse. WAKE UP!

  4. Only people who intend to cheat the system would be against showing a picture ID, it’s simple common sense. Something Liberals and Democrats never seem to exibit.

  5. I never quite understood how a dead person could vote. Didn’t realize how easy it would be. Something has to be done.

  6. Gosh, democrats are so helpful. If illegals can vote, why not dead people. Dead people have rights too.

  7. Oh My God! The US is even worse off than a Banana Republic? But wait, hasn’t this been known for quite a while now, yet nothing has been done by either party? Why didn’t the republican fight this through legislation or the court? Do they think that the Democratic Party will have an attack of conscience and change their dirty spots? Gosh, even eternity would be a shorter wait!

  8. You can vote in Texas without an ID, you just get a provisional ballot that is checked within 10 days of the votes being counted for authenticity…you can also get a limited ballot that ok’s you for certain races that aren’t tied to a particular precint or district. The problem is with these types of ballots are obvious…polls close and usually a winner is declared within hours of them being closed. If hundreds of questionable ballots are miscalculated for whatever reason in whatever direction, they can determine the outcome days after a winner/loser has been announced. How many times has THAT happened here in Texas??????????????????

  9. Islamists believe it is their duty to lie and cheat anytime it helps their cause. Democrats are no different.

  10. I guess no Republicans died in NH this year, or did these same “investigators” also go over to the other side of the room and vote twice in the Republican primary? You all realize that any of them who claimed to be someone else and procured a ballot (whether or not they voted) committed a federal crime.

  11. Obama has more sure-fire election ‘shaping’ tactics:
    – Prevent Voter Photo IDs – dead folks get to vote
    – No National Voter Registry – multiple residency voters vote more than once
    – Hurried amnesty (and voting registration) for illegal aliens.
    – OWS/Arab Spring/Union type civil unrest (aka mob violence) Jimmy Hoffa Jr. promised violence at Obama fundraiser last Fall.
    – Voter Intimidation, Coercion by Unions, other groups
    – Media shaping opinion through programming, nice/ugly labels and photos, attitudes of journalists, comedians. Even Rushbo, Coulter and Drudge are doing this.
    – Polls – polls and primaries control money and advertising budgets of candidates
    – Aggressive voter registration in Democratic areas (legal, but still a win strategy) especially when combined with the next tactic
    – Paid votes, community team organizers, busses
    – Prisoners – votes for incarcerated felons
    – Vote count fraud – from hacking machines to trunks full of fraudulent votes
    – Americans Elect, a third party candidate would split republican vote and GUARANTEE a win for Obama. This organization is already very well funded by unknown donors and has registered in all 50 states.

    1. if the GOP begins to looks successful, crank up item 4 initiate martial law, suspend the elections.

    2. I didn’t see anyone put up fuss when the electronic voting machines came in from two companies run by brothers with political connections to Republicans – Diebold and ES&S. I also didn’t see any one fuss about not getting a voter receipt and trusting the electronic totaling… There is more reality that an election is stolen through electronic manipulation of voter selections at the machines and later in the totaling computers than anything that could be done with people. I think you all missed the boat.

  12. I just watched this at the Daily Caller. Our elections are a sham. And people think Mitt Romney winning was a huge victory for him? You can be a D as in Democrat, or D, as in Dead, and you could vote for him.

    This is enough to make me sick. We’re a third world banana republic. NH, you’re a disgrace. Live Free or Die, my foot. You’re corrupt.

  13. I have heard that the Hussein Entourage is organizing Union members to collect names in cemeteries all over the U.S., because they don’t want to deprive anyone from the right to vote in the Presidential election. A photo ID won’t be required for these voters to avoid further discrimination due to unphotogenic circumstances and as to comply with the Right of Privacy in accordance to the Constitution.

    1. Ayers collected names of dead babies from cemeteries, to create fake birth certificates. It’s in his book Fugitive Days. He probably created one for his friend in the White House. Here’s an excerpt from the book. I’ve also included a poem from Ayers that he put on his blog after the election of his dear friend.

      “After the Baltimore fiasco, stealing ID was forbidden. Instead we began to build ID sets around documents as flimsy as a fishing license or a laminated card available in a Times Square novelty shop called “Official ID.” We soon figured out that the deepest and most foolproof ID had a government-issued Social Security card at its heart, and the best source of those were dead-baby birth certificates. I spent impious days over the next several months tramping through rural cemeteries in Iowa and Wisconsin, Illinois and North Dakota,searching for those sad little markers of people born between 1940 and 1950 who had died between 1945 and 1955. The numbers were surprising:  two in one graveyard, a cluster of fourteen in another. Those poor souls had typically been issued birth certificates—available to us at any county courthouse for a couple of bucks and a simple form with information I could copy from the death announcement at the archive of the local paper—but they had never applied for a Social Security card.
      Collecting those birth certificates became a small industry, and within a year we had over a hundred. For years I was a paper-made Joseph Brown, and then an Anthony Lee, remarkably durable identities. My on-paper official residences: a transient hotel in San Francisco and a warehouse in New York.
      As is typical Ayers, he throws you off on a story that is fairly true…instead of cemetery or archived newspaper hunts it was the local County vital records office where ‘infant deaths‘ of all dates–the earlier the better– were investigated by a ‘student researcher for his/her thesis.’  No funds were required as the information was only copied, conveniently both the birth and death certificate numbers were on the death certificate.  And all states were involved…during his fugitive days I don’t think he’d be in Illinois or North Dakota looking around in cemeteries especially in winter, heck even in spring.
      From there birth certificates, social security numbers, and drivers licenses were all easily made.  Over the years it was probably thousands of identities. It is also possible to manufacture multiple identities off of that one death certificate. One of the Black Panther Party/Weather Underground’s 1981 Brink’s robbers who is still in jail used the manufactured identity of “Nathanial Tate”  but his real name is Sekou Odinga, and yes, he is related to Raile Odinga, Obama’s cousin.  The Brink’s robbery was north of New York City and three officers were killed.”

      “The end of an empire is messy at best
      
And this empire is ending
Like all the rest
      
Like the Spanish Armada adrift on the sea
We’re adrift in the land of the brave
And the home of the free
      
Goodbye. Goodbye. Goodbye.”

      Now why would Chicago educator unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers quote this poem on his blog this month?  Do you think he knows something, or hopes for something that we don’t?

      1. NJK many thanks for your information. My comment was meant to be an ironic one….. I would have never thought that I was right. Sometimes reality surpasses imagination. I think that we all have to mobilize to avoid electoral fraud. I cannot believe that Hillary recently had the guts to accuse Putin of electoral fraud when everything around her is fishy and muslim-brotherhoody.
        She was actually the one who started the thing regarding Barack Hussein’s Birth Certificate, but was then told from “above” to stop this path. The Tea Party then took over this issue for a while and was then accused of racism. Oh boy, oh boy, this is really a mess!

  14. Not providing an ID is perfectly legal in NH. Attacking NH’s voting process is an attack on democracy.

    Is Project Veritas anti-democracy? 😉

    1. No need to bring common sense into the political process; that would not be politically correct! LOL!

  15. I’m sure the RuPaulites exploited this. I mean they’ve had organizations in sate since the 08 election. I wouldn’t doubt that they tested the theory a little in the 2010 elections. Anyone know what % of Dem votes Mr Paul rec’d. Wind up a PaulBot and let them run.

      1. I’ve seen and heard some of the attacks levied by your guy so I’ll respond by simply saying “Hello pot, this is kettle. You’re black”. Ron Paul has become the surrogate attack dog to clear the way for the establishment big govt Republican. Way to go.

  16. Shocking. You mean that there is fraud in our political process? It just isn’t fair to ask a dead person or an illegal to prove they have a right to vote. What are you neanderthals thinking?
