A new report suggests that the state of New Hampshire (one of the closest in the Presidential race) may have been swung by voter fraud due to the “same day registration” laws and lax proof of residence requirements.
The information is based on people registering to vote on election day, using out of state driver’s licenses. On November 8th, 6540 people registered to vote (and presumably voted) using out of state licenses. The law states that if someone moves to the state, they must get a state license within 60 days. It has now been around eight months and less than 20% have actually done so.
Hillary Clinton won the state’s Electoral College votes by just 2,736 votes; more than enough “brand new voters” to ensure a Clinton victory. Here are the figures according to the Washington Times:
- 6,540 people registered and voted on Nov. 8, based on presenting out-of-state licenses.
- As of Aug. 30, about 15 percent (1,014 of the voters) had been issued New Hampshire driver’s licenses.
- Οf the remaining 5,526, barely more than 200 (3.3 percent) had registered a motor vehicle in New Hampshire.
- New Hampshire law gives drivers 60 days, once establishing residence, to obtain a state license.
- More than 80 percent of voters who registered on Nov. 8, using out-of-state driver’s licenses, or 5,313 of them, neither had a state license issued nor registered a motor vehicle almost 10 months later.
- Double voting is illegal, and 196 people are being investigated for casting ballots in New Hampshire and in other states.
This in no way proves that voter fraud took place on a grand scale. However, it does raise questions and warrants further investigation. Especially considering revelations made in video footage taken by Project Veritas shows:
Poll workers told Veritas operatives that they did not need to live in the state to vote, that they could use a Massachusetts driver’s license and that they could fill out a form if they had no ID.
“If you’re here today, you can vote and be gone,” one poll official unwittingly told Veritas.
New Hampshire House Speaker, Shawn Jasper, has been asking questions about this issue. After writing a letter to the State Secretary, William Gardener, he received a reply saying:
“It is likely that some unknown number of these individuals moved out of New Hampshire, it is possible that a few may have never driven in New Hampshire or have ceased driving, however, it is expected that an unknown number of the remainder continue to live and drive in New Hampshire. If they have established their residence in New Hampshire, they may have failed to obtain a New Hampshire driver’s license.”
No mention of voter fraud is even hinted at in the reply. There are other New Hampshire elections decided by even closer vote counts, leaving many wondering how secure the system really is in New Hampshire.
