There are countless reports on social media from GOP voters who have been turned away from the polls in Pennsylvania, as well as claims that busloads of outside voters were brought in financed by the likes of George Soros in the crucial special election that could help decide the fate of the control of Congress.
The election in Pennsylvania had an enormous impact on the future of both parties, with President Trump endorsing Republican Rick Saccone against Democrat Conor Lamb, where the oftentimes swing state could have ended going for either side.
The GOP has failed to act with over a year in control now on any Voter ID legislation requiring only American citizens to vote.
However, there are endless reports from users on social media claiming that they were literally turned away from the polls in some areas, partially due to redistricting that was intended to help rig the elections for the Democratic Party.
Big League Politics reported that due to redistricting efforts, numerous voters were refused from voting, with the pollsters suggesting to them that it was due to the new redistricting.
We also know that this special election was based upon old district lines, meaning that those people shouldn’t have been turned away from the polls. – Goldwater Report
How many people were turned away? In such a close election this undoubtedly makes a difference.
Two weeks ago, we reported that Pennsylvania officials are in hot water after over 100,000 illegal voters were found on hidden data within the voter rolls.
Only 2 weeks ago, Lifezette reported that Pennsylvania state elections officials are hiding data on noncitizen voters, obscuring what could be as many as 100,000 illegal voters in the crucial swing state, according to a federal lawsuit filed Monday.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), which promotes “clean” voter registration rolls across the country, has sought records from Pennsylvania required under the so-called motor voter law. The law, formally known as the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), allows members of the public to inspect records related to registered voters.
“For months, Pennsylvania bureaucrats have concealed facts about noncitizens registering and voting — that ends today,” PILF President and general counsel J. Christian Adams said in a statement. “Before this lawsuit, the state admitted to a ‘glitch’ that exposed thousands of driver’s license customers to voter registration offers despite their noncitizen status since the 1990s.”
Adams noted that the secretary of state abruptly resigned in October. Adams added that his organization “hopes to finally get answers about the true scale of noncitizen voting in Pennsylvania and assist lawmakers in crafting reforms that fix it.”
The civil complaint names acting Secretary of State Robert Torres and Jonathan Marks, the commissioner of the Bureau of Commissions, Elections and Legislation, as defendants. A spokeswoman for the secretary of state’s office said the office does not comment on pending litigation.
PILF has been highlighting voting irregularities since at least 2015, when it reported that 86 registered voters in the city of Philadelphia asked elections officials between 2013 and 2015 to be removed from the rolls because they were not U.S. citizens.
Al Schmidt, a Philadelphia city commissioner, later testified before a state legislative committee that 220 noncitizens successfully registered to vote between 2006 and 2017, and that 90 of them had cast 277 ballots.
From the PA Governor’s website:
Only first-time voters in precincts must show identification (ID).
- Voters voting for the first time in their precinct must show ID. The ID can be a photo or non-photo ID. This is the only time ID is required.
- Pennsylvania’s strict photo ID law for all voters is no longer in effect for voting at the polls. Unless you are voting for the first time in your precinct, poll workers should not ask you for photo ID, and you will NOT need to present ID to vote in the 2016 Primary or General Election.
- If you are voting for the first time in your precinct, and you show a non-photo ID, it must contain your name and address. The only other voters who need to show ID are those who may need to verify that their address is correct.
