With the vital mid-term elections coming up on Tuesday, the frequency of voter fraud has been a worrying sidebar. But we shouldn’t be surprised, given the enormous illegal alien population that has grown in its numbers and sense of entitlement.
It’s crazy to work hard for worthy candidates and spend billions of dollars in elections when illegal aliens can steal away the true results.
Rather than being a rare event, voter fraud is apparently far more common than any of us would care to contemplate. A recent item from the Washington Post (Could non-citizens decide the November election?) noted the research of two Old Dominion University professors that suggested voter fraud by non-Americans could be determinative.

When Hans von Spakovsky wrote about the problem this week in the WSJ, he emphasized the source of the problem — extremist liberal groups like the ACLU that fight against policies that protect vote honesty:

    [. . .] Unfortunately, we can’t know [the likelihood that your vote won’t count]. But one thing is almost certain: Voter fraud will occur. Many states run a rickety election process, lacking rules to deter people who are looking to take advantage of the system’s porous security. And too many groups and individuals—including the NAACP, the American Civil Liberties Union and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder —are doing everything they can to prevent states from improving the integrity of the election process.
    Their refrain is that voter fraud either doesn’t exist or is so insignificant that nothing needs to be done to improve ballot security. Yet in the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2008 ruling that upheld Indiana’s voter ID law, Justice John Paul Stevens acknowledged “flagrant examples of such fraud” throughout the nation’s history and observed that “not only is the risk of voter fraud real” but also that “it could affect the outcome of a close election.”
    Polling shows that the November general election will likely have many close races, particularly on the local level. Nothing new there. In 2014, 16 local races in Ohio were decided by one vote or through breaking a tie. In 2013, 35 local races in Ohio were that close.
    Voting by noncitizens alone could swing such races. A new study by two Old Dominion University professors, based on survey data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study, found that 6.4% of all noncitizens voted illegally in the 2008 presidential election, and 2.2% voted in the 2010 midterms. ,,,
