Some Random Musings on Election Fraud

 

After leaving Mass last Sunday at Our Lady of Perpetual Aggrievement, while waiting to see if any good Catholic would let me out of the parking lot, I started thinking about the upcoming election.

Election fraud, election deniers, and voter suppression all came to mind. I thought about checking the Guinness Book of World Records for how many Chicago Civil War vets were still voting, and which one of them had never missed an election leading up to November 8, 2022.

When someone passes out of this world, a family member has to receive a death certificate issued by county government to accomplish any number of tasks to settle the deceased’s estate. I wonder if a copy of that death certificate is forwarded by the county to the county elections office. I’m all for perpetual flames but remaining on the voter rolls in perpetuity just does not have the same cachet a natural gas flame has.

If burglars can find the time to go through funeral notices, and they do, to burglarize the deceased’s home while the funeral takes place why can’t election officials exercise some due diligence to remove the deceased’s name from the voter rolls.

    Depends on the Jurisdiction.  In my youth I worked on Vital statistics systems.  There were batch processes to export death certificate date to other government offices, presumably the elections officials were part of that.  The systems did not talk to each other automatically though.  In Texas, normally elections and vital statistics are both part of the county clerks office, so presumably they could have been coordinated, but in practice I didn’t see much evidence of coordination.

    It’s not just the deceased’s home, it could also be the homes of family members who are listed in obits as “survived by…”

    In MD, then-Gov. Ehrlich established a process of running the voter rolls against the Social Security deaths index.  This was clearly a suppression strategy to disenfranchise folks buried near Edgar Allen Poe.  I don’t know how assiduously they keep that up.

    I am told that Wayne County (Detroit) kept gaining registered voters while losing population. But now Michigan is taking steps to clean up the state voter rolls, removing deceased and departed.  170,000 will be removed after this election, and 450,000 in 2025 so a lot of Necro-Americans will need to cast a ballot this time or get dropped.

    It’s all such a half-assed system…

    The Necro-Americans need to be dropped even if they do vote this time.

    I expect it happens in Canada too.  Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt.

    Be sure to put only pro-Dem stuff in your social media so there will be no need for authorities to investigate the illegal Nevada vote.

    It doesnt really.  Our voter rolls are really clean.  Of course were not fighting for control of the greatest empire in  history.

    Actually I was referring to the funeral burglary stuff.

    If it is a red wave, there will be complaints from the left about election fraud. Corporate media will switch the narrative from election fraud to one of the following:

    1.0  Disinformation

    We will hear that inflation, gas prices, open border, crime, CRT/Woke education agenda were lies  and disinformation. Complaining about how paying 8.00 a month to maintain their checkmark is a attack on journalism.  they will demand a war against anyone who goes against the left’s narrative

    2.0  Voting Suppression

    This is an oldie but a goodie – they love to drag this out when they lose (See Stacey Abrams)

    3.0  Un-enlightened masses

    This will come from the David French/David Frum/Tom Nichols wing of the  chattering classes. They will declare democracy (or Christianity in French’s case) is over because a bunch of rubes cared more about things like food and energy than the good of the country.

    Do you think evidence of high turnout especially among the people who were supposedly suppressed, will make any difference?  If it’s even reported accurately which may not happen.
