#ncga: Heck, let’s allow EVERYBODY to vote!


For all their caterwauling and boo-hooing over the integrity of our elections process, legislative Democrats sure seem hell-bent on introducing even more potential opportunities for mischief into the mix.

House Bill 1115, entitled “Let North Carolina Vote Act”, got introduced this week by a gaggle of House Democrats — led by Orange County’s Graig “I am sooooooo ashamed of my whiteness” Meyer.  The bill establishes “automatic” voter registration for anyone and everyone who: renews or obtains a North Carolina driver license, or registers for classes at a North Carolina community college or state university.  (Lots of folks who aren’t North Carolina residents take classes at North Carolina community colleges, colleges, and universities. Even folks who aren’t legally old enough to vote often take college courses.) 

Here’s one interesting part they are trying to strike (remove) from The General Statutes:

[…] The person taking the application shall ask if the applicant is a citizen of the United States. If the applicant states that the applicant is not a citizen of the United States, or declines to answer the question, the person taking the application shall inform the applicant that it is a felony for a person who is not a citizen of the United States to apply to register to vote.

The application shall state in clear language the penalty for violation of this section. The necessary forms shall be prescribed by the State Board. The form must ask for the previous voter registration address of the voter, if any. If a previous address is listed, and it is not in the county of residence of the applicant, the appropriate county board of elections shall treat the application as an authorization to cancel the previous registration and also process it as such under the procedures of G.S. 163A-870. If a previous address is listed and that address is in the county where the voter applies to register, the application shall be processed as if it had been submitted under G.S. 163A-870.[…] 

So, asking if you are a citizen of the United States is problematic for  the folks who are soooooo concerned that Dan McCready was robbed of a US House seat?

Here’s another, um, “interesting” part of the bill:

[…] Ineligible applications prohibited. – No person shall make application to register to vote under this subdivision if that person is ineligible on account of age, citizenship, lack of residence for the period of time provided by law, or because of conviction of a felony. However, if a person who is ineligible to vote becomes registered to vote pursuant to this subdivision, the presumption shall be that the person’s registration is deemed officially authorized and shall not be attributed to any fault of the person.

No requirement to determine eligibility. – Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed as requiring State colleges or universities in The University of North Carolina System to determine eligibility for voter registration and voting.” […] 

In other words, they tell you not to register if you’re not eligible.  But if you improperly register due to a felony conviction, not being old enough, or not being a resident of North Carolina or citizen of the United States, it’s not your problem or the state’s problem.  In fact, your improper registration gets counted as okey-dokey and authorized. 

Seriously, folks.  If you don’t keep your eye on these people, they will rob you blind.

    The large increase in registered voters through these measures far exceeds any potential fraud Mr. Clifton fears. More valid voters on the roles is better for government, ESPECIALLY in the illegal jurisdictional boundaries drawn by the GOP several years/elections ago. And being on the roles does NOT mean these groups vote in large numbers but more legal votes is still better than the recent restrictions we have seen coming from the Right.

      Polls show that 13% of illegal aliens admit to voting in US elections. That indicates that it is already much too easy to get registered. We in NC now probably have a governor and attorney general who are only there because of illegal aliens illegally voting.

        If your concern is legality, a FAR more important issue that affects everyone in the state is the illegal district maps drawn up by the GOP many years ago and the illegal GOP redrawn maps as well. NC voters have been forced to base elections that “with surgical precision” reduce the voting impact of non-whites in this state.
        The minor issue of illegals voting is just to shift the focus away from the real crime here.

          Says you? A partisan leftist? Sure when Democrats gerrymandered NC Districts for years it was ok (Remember The I-85 contortion district?). But when Republicans do it it’s illigal, why don’t you go buzz off.

            Gerrymandering is not illegal if done fairly, in fact it exists anytime a partisan group draws the maps. Unfortunately for the GOP, they got greedy and never considered fairness. The Courts are the ones who evaluated the GOP drawn maps and determined that the boundaries were unfairly composed, i.e. where it takes away the black vote “with surgical precision”.
            Gotta buzz…

            The federal courts are full of left wing partisan hacks – ward healers in black robes – like James Wynn of the 4th “Circus” Court of Appeals, appointed by Obama and Clinton. There is not a dimes worth of difference on their objectivity and that of Chuckie Schumer or Nancy Pelosi. Now our state Supreme Court is polluted with that Stalinist radical Antifa Earls.

            Our courts today are politically corrupt and trying to seize legislative and executive powers that do not belong to them. They need to be slapped down hard. Poland has the right idea in widescale replacement of judges.

            “… federal courts are full of left wing partisan hacks…”
            An opinion I, for one, do not agree with. All Federal Judges are approved by the Senate which has been Conservative for quite a while now.

    So the courts never ruled that the Democrat drawn voting maps were so convoluted a GPS couldn’t navigate it. How odd. Where is the Tea Party??
