Nevada's Clark County Sent More Than 200K Mail-In Primary Ballots To Wrong Addresses

More than one-sixth of Clark County mail-in ballots in Nevada were sent to outdated or undeliverable addresses, according to a new watchdog report.

“The addresses that we used were provided by the voters when they registered,” Dan Kulin, a spokesman for Clark County, told the Washington Free Beacon. “If they no longer reside at the address they provided to us, then we would expect that mail to be returned to us, which is what happened.”

Mail-in voting could possibly go wrong?

More than one-sixth of the mail-in ballots sent to voters in Nevada’s largest county during the 2020 primary went to outdated addresses, according to a new watchdog report.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity group, reviewed the 1.3 million mail-in ballots Nevada’s Clark County sent during the June primary. It found that more than 223,000 of the ballots were sent to outdated addresses, leading the postal service to designate them as “undeliverable.” The undeliverable ballots accounted for 17 percent of all ballots mailed to registered voters. Nearly 75 percent of Nevada’s total population resides in the county, which includes Las Vegas.

“These numbers show how vote by mail fails,” said J. Christian Adams, PILF’s president and general counsel. “New proponents of mail balloting don’t often understand how it actually works. States like Oregon and Washington spent many years building their mail voting systems and are notably aggressive with voter list maintenance efforts. Pride in their own systems does not somehow transfer across state lines. Nevada, New York, and others are not and will not be ready for November.” More

So nationally, mail-in voting would be a piece of cake, eh? That’s the latest snake-oil idea the Democrats are trying to sell to us. This gives all new meaning to “ballot harvesting.” Someone who is willing to commit the federal crime of voter fraud won’t mind stealing ballots out of all the unsecured mailboxes of vacant houses.

ICE: 19 Foreign Nationals Charged With Voter Fraud In North Carolina

Nineteen people in North Carolina face federal charges of voter fraud over allegations that they voted in 2016 despite not being citizens. Some were also charged with other crimes. All of them voted in a 2016 federal election and one person also voted in 2018, according to a news release Wednesday from U.S. Attorney Matthew G.T. Martin announcing the indictments.

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Nineteen foreign nationals face federal charges in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina for illegally voting in the 2016 federal elections, according to federal charges publicly announced on Wednesday. These charges are the latest indictments to result from an ongoing years-long federal criminal investigation being conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Raleigh office.

A federal grand jury in Wilmington charged seven foreign nationals on August 31 on federal felony charges including falsely claiming U.S. citizenship or making false statements on voter registration application, and with misdemeanor charges of unlawfully casting ballots in the 2016 presidential election. Non-citizens are not eligible to register to vote or to vote in federal elections under U.S. law.

  • Francisco Antonio-Aguirre, age 64, Guatemala
  • Roob Kaur Atar-Singh, age 57, Malaysia
  • Rosalva Negrete-Toledo, aka Rosalva Cortes, age 65, Mexico
  • Dave Delano Virgil, age 57, Tobago
  • Eloy Alberto Zayas-Berrier, age 70, Cuba
  • Emmanuel Olakunle Atoyebi, age 31, Nigeria
  • Mokhtar Qaid Ahmed Gulaimid, age 48, Yemen

If convicted, these individuals face maximum penalties of six years in federal prison, a $350,000 fine, and a term of supervised release.

An additional 12 foreign nationals were charged in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina on August 13 with misdemeanor charges for unlawfully casting ballots in the 2016 presidential election.

  • Ismay Prudence Kathleen James, age 54, Bermuda
  • Donald Christian Martyn, age 44, Sierra Leone
  • Chaim Pinto, age 68, Israel
  • John Andrew Rapsky, age 54, Canada
  • Baijoo Pottakulath Thomas, age 58, India
  • Shuqin Yin, age 54, China
  • Chirong Yin Billings, aka Chirong Cummings, age 56, China
  • Henry Alberto Araya-Vega, age 52, Costa Rica
  • Rufina Concho-Locklear, age 82, Mexico
  • Alberto Damaize-Job, aka Alberto Damaize, age 73, Nicaragua
  • Armando Nava-Juarez, aka Armando Nava, age 51, Mexico
  • Manuel Efrain Valladares, age 48, El Salvador

If convicted, these individuals face a maximum term of one-year imprisonment, a fine not to exceed $100,000, or both.

The charges and allegations contained in the indictments are merely accusations. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

The case is being prosecuted federally by the office of United States Attorney Matthew G.T. Martin for the Middle District of North Carolina.

These most-recent indictments stem from an ongoing HSI investigation that previously resulted in separate indictments in the Eastern District of North Carolina in August 2018.

Mail-In Ballot Fraud in New Jersey Signals National Trouble

Concern over mail-in balloting is rising as the presidential election approaches.

Published

Micah Morrison: Concern over mail-in balloting is rising as the presidential election approaches.

Last month, Judicial Watch highlighted California Governor Gavin Newsom’s brazen mail-in ballot scam: an executive order mandating mail-in ballots “to preserve public health in the face of the threat of Covid-19.” Judicial Watch challenged the executive order in federal court, prompting the state legislature to pass a law ensuring that mail-in balloting would take place.

Problems with mail-in, or absentee, balloting are not new. In 2005, the bipartisan Carter-Baker Commission noted that “absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud…. Absentee balloting is vulnerable to abuse in several ways: blank ballots mailed to the wrong address or to a large residential building might get intercepted. Citizens who vote at home, at nursing homes, at the workplace, or in church are more susceptible to pressure, overt and subtle, or to intimidation. Vote buying schemes are far more difficult to detect when citizens vote by mail.”

Now comes news from New Jersey that has election observers worried. In a well-documented case of ballot fraud, the state attorney general charged four men with casting fraudulent mail-in votes, tampering with public records, and falsifying documents. It’s a template for crooked electioneering and perhaps a sign of things to come.

The charges surround city council elections in Paterson—Democratic Party turf and New Jersey’s third largest city, with a $287 million municipal budget. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, like his counterpart in California, issued an executive order authorizing a vote entirely by mail-in ballots. Mark Hemingway of Real Clear Politics reports that problems quickly surfaced after election day. Bundles of ballots appeared in neighborhood mailboxes, raising the suspicions of U.S. Postal Service inspectors. Over 2,300 ballots were disqualified when the signatures appeared to not match voting records. Piles of mail-in ballots were left on the lobby floors of apartment buildings. Reporters tracked down citizens who were listed as having voted but insisted they never even received a ballot. Nearly 20% of the 16,000 ballots were disqualified.

Investigators for the attorney general quickly traced the bogus ballots to two local politicians and their hired hands. City Councilman Michael Jackson and councilman-elect Alex Mendez were charged with election fraud for illegally collecting ballots and tampering with the certification paperwork. Shelim Kalique and Abu Razyen were charged with fraud for improperly collecting ballots. The scheme appears to have been simple: the men collected blank ballots, forged the paperwork and signatures, and submitted fake votes. Read more on the charges here.

The fairy tale among Democrats and the Left is that conservative concerns about election fraud are nothing but attempts to deny voters access to the ballot box. But election fraud should be a bipartisan concern. As Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Congress last month, “if you’re a Leftist Democrat trying to take on an incumbent in a corrupt jurisdiction, voter fraud can keep you from gaining traction.”

Paterson underscores Tom’s argument. It’s a historically corrupt city dominated by Democratic Party politics. The defendants in the ballot fraud case are not criminal masterminds—a closer approximation would be Curly, Moe and Larry—but in a way that’s the point. Ballot fraud is easy.

RCP’s Hemingway reminds us that while Paterson’s municipal balloting has little in common with a national election, the 2016 presidential race was decided “by fewer than 80,000 votes in a handful of swing states.” Paterson demonstrates that the national rush to mail-in balloting has left plenty of room for fraud and error. And that’s a signal of trouble for November.

Sen. Tom Cotton DESTROYS Liberal Claims that Voter Fraud Does Not Happen

U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R, AR) posted a twitter thread that literally destroys the left’s claims that there is no voter fraud.

U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R, AR) posted a twitter thread that literally destroys the left’s claims that there is no voter fraud.

The Senator was incensed when Twitter decided to go against its own policy and begin siding with the far left on the policy discussion of mail-in elections.

In his excellent thread posted on Wednesday, Cotton said:

Twitter is “fact checking” the argument that mandatory vote-by-mail would be ripe for fraud.

It’s absurd for twitter to exercise editorial control over a public policy argument.

And like most smug liberals, they’re wrong on the facts.

Then Cotton gave example after example of the exact sort of crimes that the liberals say do not happen.

This thread is a must read for those looking to debunk the left on voter fraud:

There are far more than this, of course, but these are plenty to dispense with Twitter’s activism for the Democrat Party’s claim that there is no such thing as vote fraud.

Indeed, check out a recent post by Daily Signal that details 15 examples of elections overturned because of mail-in ballot fraud.

But that never happens, huh?
