Here it is, as of January 24, 2017 (initially drafted to support this post; updates down the road are likely):
- As carried at RedState in November, the Trump transition team itself offered evidence in late November that the press pretends doesn’t exist. “Miller referred to the 2014 Washington Post study that indicated more than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 elections indicated they were registered to vote, and the Pew Research study that said approximately 24 million, or one out of every eight, voter registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate. Miller went on to say that the same Pew Research study notes that 2.5 million people have registrations in more than one state. These are studies and examples of where there have been issues of both voter fraud and illegal immigrants voting.” There is absolutely no reason to believe that any of the situations described here have become less of a problem.
- An investigative project in eight counties Virginia found that hundreds of illegal votes have been cast in previous elections. The evidence surfaced only involved illegal voters subsequently thrown off the rolls, likely a tiny percentage of all such registrations. It’s difficult to impossible to know how many other illegal registrations and illegal votes have occurred in those jurisdictions or throughout the rest of the state. That’s because Virginia’s state government has proactively prevented the investigators from looking at the state’s other 100-plus voting jurisdictions.
- A Pennsylvania State Representative, reacting to the fact that his state, like so many others, “makes no effort to verify the the citizenship status of people who register,” told LifeZette that “There’s certainly the potential for hundreds, if not thousands, of foreigners here legally and illegally to be on our voter rolls, and a certain percentage who are casting ballots.”
- In California, over 800,000 illegal immigrants now have driver’s licenses, which is all that is needed to register to vote. The state claims “there are safeguards in the system to prevent undocumented licensees from being registered to vote.” It won’t say what they are. The election-integrity enterprise known as True the Vote says the controls don’t exist.
- Elections officials in several states, including Washington, have taken to saying that their elections run on “the honor system,” as if that’s something noble. What it is, is a disgrace. What it really means is that there are “opportunities for widespread … and undetectable fraud.”
- Anecdotal, but chilling nonetheless — In the course of filming Democratic Party-supported groups whose primary mission during this past election cycle was to disrupt and provoke violence at Republican campaign events (mostly Trump events), James O’Keefe was told by one of the thugs’s leaders that “we’ve been bussing people in to deal with you f***in’ a**holes [Republicans] for fifty years and we’re not going to stop now, we’re just going to find a different way to do it.” This would appear to only leave open the question of the scale of these now-admitted long-practiced activities.
- True the Vote, which has spent the past seven years exhaustively documenting and demonstrating the weaknesses in the current electoral system, has publicly supported Trump’s contention, a development the press has steadfastly refused to report. Specifically, “True the Vote absolutely supports President-elect Trump’s recent comment about the impact of illegal voting, as reflected in the national popular vote. We are still collecting data and will be for several months, but our intent is to publish a comprehensive study on the significant impact of illegal voting in all of its many forms and begin a national discussion on how voters, states, and the Trump Administration can best address this growing problem.”
UPDATE, January 25: Another example of “no evidence” (that’s sarcasm, folks) —
Study: ‘Up To 2.8 Million Non-Citizens Voted In 2008…Large Enough To Change Outcomes’; Trump To Investigate Voter Fraud!
A more detailed related write-up is at the Daily Caller, which reports that the range is from a very low 38K to 2.8 million. Regardless, it’s irresponsible and false for the press to claim that there’s “no evidence” of widespread illegal voting.
