Voter Outrage In Suffolk County
This morning I was denied the right to vote .
Let me explain . When I showed up at my polling place at 6am this morning and walked over to my election district table to pick up my ballot imagine my surprise when the election official informed me that not only was my name not in the rolls but the book with the voter registration names in it that we have to sign into , without any ID mind you , was missing pages 1 through 10 and 12 through 60 .
I live in a smallish town in Suffolk county but even so those nearly sixty missing pages account for approximately 600 voters who have been disenfranchised . To be fair I was offered two alternatives: casting an “affidavit ballot” , which I initially chose , or returning to the polls some hours from now when a “new book” could be delivered from the county seat an hour and a half’s drive away .
Unbeknownst to me when I accepted the “affidavit ballot” , I was given a special envelope that required me to fill out all manner of personal information including “party affiliation” . My conditional ballot would then be sealed into this envelope and allegedly transported to the county seat and be counted at the end of the day with all of those who were allowed to vote in the usual way .
After starting to cast my ballot and being given the envelope , I refused to fill out said envelope which would have denied me my anonymity as the election officials opening my envelope would have been able to associate my votes with a name thus denying me the confidentiality afforded to all of the voters who’s names were in the registration book .
I for one am lucky enough that I can return later in the day to try again . After driving away it came to me that since they have already recorded my name in the book as having cast an “affidavit ballot” are they going to be competent enough to record the fact that I refused to turn in my ballot and erase the botched transaction ?
This is an outrage that only lends credence to the notion that our government is too incompetent to be trusted with anything of importance and one has to wonder how many of these +/- 600 voters will even be able to make a second trip to the polls . This is Andrew Cuomo’s New York folks .
Good luck . To be continued … We’ll see if I am allowed to cast a real ballot when I return this afternoon after refusing to complete my “affidavit ballot”
” A federal judge last week upheld the right of states to require proof of citizenship before allowing someone to register to vote. Voters continue to overwhelmingly support such a requirement.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 78% of Likely U.S. Voters believe everyone should be required to prove his or her citizenship before being allowed to register to vote. That’s up from 71% a year ago. Just 19% oppose that requirement. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Twenty-nine percent (29%) believe laws that require proof of citizenship before allowing voter registration discriminate against such voters. But more than twice as many (61%) say such laws do not discriminate, up three points from 58% who felt that way in March of last year. Ten percent (10%) are undecided.
Opponents of proof-of-citizenship laws claim they are intended to keep eligible voters from voting, while supporters say instead that they are intended to keep ineligible voters from casting votes. Thirty-four percent (34%) think it is more common that people are prevented from voting who should be allowed to vote. Half (50%) of voters disagree and think that more often people are allowed to vote who are not eligible to vote. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.
This marks a six-point increase from last year in the number of voters who think it is more common for people to be allowed to vote who are not eligible. It’s also the highest level of doubt about the voting process in surveys since January 2008. “

So Lets Get This Straight , 139-5 Romney makes this county ” the most anti-Obama ” county , yet how many of you have heard of all the voting wards , districts and precincts where Obama got every single vote ? Why isn’t that news ? If it wasn’t for the new media reporting it we wouldn’t know , yet CNN goes out of their way to try and spin a story of how , Texas has the ” the most anti-Obama ” county , even though Obama got 3.4 % .
Anybody hear a” Dog Whistle” ?
” In a CNN video, it is revealed that the most anti-Obama area in the United States is King County, Texas. There, Mitt Romney won by a landslide as Barack Obama only got five votes. “
” “I was so upset this could happen,” voter Sher Coromalis told MyFox8.com. Coromalis tried at least three times unsuccessfully to cast her vote for Mitt Romney at early polling, and each time her vote was counted as a vote for Obama.
Coromalis also said she had to press the selection button several times before it was accepted, a problem another voter, Marie Haydock, confirmed having. “The frustration is every vote counts,” Haydock told Fox, convinced that numbers reported by recent Gallup and Rasmussen polls actually reflect the people’s choice.
The Guilford County board of elections tried to explain off the mishap, saying this type of problem is definitely “not a conspiracy” and is solved by recalibrating the machine. “It’s not a conspiracy, it’s just a machine that needs to be corrected,” Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert said trying to calm suspicions of foul play.
Infowars has always held a non-partisan stance on elections and presidential candidates. In the past, we’ve also reported on numerous instances of voter fraud, a practice that is almost as American as apple pie and baseball.
North Carolina was recently at the center of a controversy where nearly 30,000 names of registered voters were actually dead people. “Mainly, what we’re concerned about is the potential [for fraud],” Voter Integrity project director Jay DeLancy told the Charlotte Observer. “Since there is no voter ID law in North Carolina, anybody can walk in and claim to be anyone else.” “
” Project Veritas has released a new investigation that exposes Obama campaign workers, including a Regional Field Director at Organizing for America (OFA), engaged in election fraud.
According to James O’Keefe, “These individuals showed no concern whatsoever when our investigators declared their intention to vote multiple times for President Obama. In fact, they were happy to help, even going so far as to provide the forms necessary to commit the fraud and offering advice on how to avoid getting caught.”
For much of 2012, Project Veritas has been conducting an ongoing series of investigations in more than a dozen states demonstrating the ease with which election fraud can be committed and legitimate voters can be disenfranchised. And they’ve shown that no one is immune. In April, a Project Veritas investigator was even offered the ballot of Attorney General Eric Holder himself.
“But no matter how many times we’ve proven the danger,” said O’Keefe, “our concerns have been dismissed by the media while efforts to correct the problem at the state level have been actively blocked by the Obama administration. Now we know why.” “
“IRS staff were instructed to overlook fraud in applications for taxpayer IDs”
” Internal Revenue Service supervisors “urged” their subordinates to ignore cases of fraud in applications for Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers, which allow foreign nationals to get tax refunds, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration
” He may not want them to vote…
But they make a good photo-op.
The Obama Campaign is suingObama campaign is suing to keep military votes from counting.”
We here at YouViewed have always taken a dim view of executive orders , although we can see some argument for the need for the procedure on very rare occasions . That being said , we must acknowledge that we see no pressing need for over three quarters of a million ILLEGAL ALIENS to be granted amnesty by this backdoor legislation scant months before a presidential election .
Have the Dems run out of cemeteries from which to harvest votes ?
Certainly the timing is more than suspect . There was a time in the not too distant past where the average citizen would never have harbored such cynical notions of their commander-in-chief . No longer …
We wish Congressman King Godspeed and good luck in his bid to match/one-up the Obama administration in this despicable game of executive legislating . It is time to out Alinsky the Alinskyites .
Breitbart Lives .
” Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King said Friday that he plans to sue the Obama administration to halt implementation of its newly announced selective illegal immigration law enforcement policy. He told Mike Huckabee on the former Arkansas governor’s radio program Friday that he successfully sued his own state’s governor — and won — over a similar separation-of-powers issue.
“I will tell you that — I’m not without experience on this — I’m prepared to bring a suit and seek a court order to stop implementation of this policy,” King said “

Nothing like the world funding your campaign is there ? And I’m sure we can count on the same media response as in 2008 …. A collective yawn and a ” move along peasants , nothing to see here ”
