real probability of fraud
You compare bussing people to a protest to bussing people into another distict/state and casting an illegal ballot?
What do you consider fraud about attending a protest (freedom of speech)?
A one-hour documentary showing how Colorado has literally been hijacked by four individuals and their supporters...... You don't have to like the source; try listening to the message instead.
TV listings are fairly sparse but if you get any of these channels, watch it....and learn their strategy for implementing it in other states like Texas and Virginia.
New Colorado voting laws put into place: The Denver Post is normally pretty liberal and even they aren't happy with the Dems this year.
>>>Call and some other Republicans still have reservations about the new law enabling the voting changes, although the most heat focuses on the same-day voter registration provision. It allows citizens to register and vote if they have lived in the jurisdiction for at least 22 days.
The legislature already revisited the law this year and nixed a provision that allowed same-day registration as long as the voter merely intended to live in the area — after a voting stunt last year by activist Jon Caldara.>>>>>
My bolded area shows the actual potential for voter fraud by allowing people from other states to enter the state of Colorado three weeks before the election and register and vote the same day as the election......and then go back to where they came from.
If those people come from a state that doesn't have any elections being held at the same time or they feel their 'home' state doesn't need their vote because their party is leading in it, they are literally tossing their vote into another state in order to 'fix' that state's election. This presents the very real probability of fraud on both sides of the aisle, but more so for Dems because of their well-known 'machine' used during protests using union members being bussed or trucked in from across state lines.
Is that if unions will pay, especially unemployed union members, to bus those into other states to protest, there is no reason to believe they wouldn't do the same, including paying for temporary housing, to get people into Colorado 22 days before an election that is extremely important to them to vote........then take them all back home again.
As I've said often, you don't have to like the source......just read the factual information so you'll be better informed regarding your folly.....
How many more have showed up in Colorado since the new law is in force? The latest figures are from March of 2014..........there is nothing on the internet that I can find that shows how many new residents there are as of October 13, 2014 and those numbers probably won't be available for a while yet, but you can bet money and win that it will be pretty large across the state.
So you condemn that new law even though it's 'legal'?
I'm looking at a completely Democrat legislature and Dem Governor who radically changed the voter law this year in time for this election.........in order to tip it into their favor at the last minute of voting. If this had been a Republican legislature with a Republican Governor, would you be okay with it? If this is okay with you and doesn't constitute 'fraud' or 'fixing' the election, how can you possibly be against voter ID laws in states where Republicans hold the Governor seat?
because IF it WAS a Republican legislature with a Republican Governor who signed it into law, the liberal Democrats would be screaming bloody murder, accusing them of 'fraud' and/or 'fixing' the vote, and probably suing to stop it with an injunction..........and you know it, Diana.
IF that State turns Republican........please don't start two years from now during the Presidential election acting all 'this is sooooo wrong' and 'the Republicans should be changing that law back' because that would be a little hypocritical, doncha think?
I think they have to reside there for 30 days before they can vote...so IF Colorado had a 30 day period...would she be happy?...22 days...NO...30 days...YES.
Waiting to be corrected on my figures...BUT...what does she figure is a fair number of days for a residency clause?
How long should I reside in New Brunswick before you think I should vote there?
Whatever the provincial regulations are...People voting in other districts in Canada is not on the radar up here.
You'd love it...or maybe you wouldn't.
to call my local Electoral Board to find out how long you have to be a resident before you can register to vote in the State of Virginia.........YOU think it's 30 days, but I think it's longer than that. If it IS 30 days, I will actually be disappointed because I believe it should be at a minimum of six months to show you intend to stay here. So far, all I've found is in the DMV rules stating that a 'temporary residency with intent to leave soon' is not eligible, but who in Colorado would admit to that?
I believe people should have at the very least a six month residency before being allowed to vote on anything within that State....that shows a pretty good consistency that they plan to stay.
And, yes....they should be allowed to vote via absentee ballot for things from their previous State in the meantime.
How long do YOU think someone should reside in a state before they can vote on anything within that new state?
as long as they can still vote.
I noticed that some states are checking to see if people registered in their state is registered in any other state. If they are, they take them off the roles. That seems a little radical because I don't remember unregistering in my previous state when I moved.
so can you..seems fair...
But you don't feel THAT strongly about the situation?
When are you taking up temporary residence in Colorado?
Perhaps they could hold elections in every state on a 22 day cycle...every 22 days an election in a different state....don't count the votes until ALL states have voted....Wouldn't THAT get the economy going...all that traveling, hotels, motels, restaurants, gas stations.
Perhaps you could just vote for laws/leaders for EVERY state in the union FROM your home state. Since you want to have a say in what goes on in another state. The ballot wouldn't be that long.
