Monkey Business Report: Dems pushing for expanded early voting + Sunday voting

monkeyAt least, in Moore County.  On June 27, the Moore County board of elections heard a presentation from Democrat-affiliated interests proposing FIVE early voting sites that will even be open and running on Sundays.   A decision on the proposal could come Monday, July 11, at an 8:30 AM meeting of the county board of elections offices in Carthage.  “Souls to the Polls” is the name the Democrats have put to their plan. 

Some religious Right interests are poo-pooing the idea, in general, of voting on Sunday.  Some fiscal conservative types are skeptical about the added cost in time and resources to accommodate the Democrat plan.  The toothless local GOP leadership has said they’ll gladly work with whatever the board decides.  

You know what Sunday voting is really all about.  Stage buses right outside EVERY A.M.E. church on Sunday morning.  Have your favorite pastor preach some fire and brimstone about those Republicans, and then shepherd the flock right out the door, onto the buses, and over to the early voting sites.  Taxpayers will be aiding and betting Democrat GOTV.  

Personally, I think Election Day ought to be moved to a Saturday.  That would eliminate an awful lot of getting-off-work, picking-up-the-kids dilemmas a lot of voters face on Tuesdays in March and November.  voteearly

But THIS — I am not interested in playing into the hands of preacher / politicos on the payroll of the Democrat Party.  Many of them already push the envelope regarding political activities inside a tax-exempt “house of worship.”

Stuff like this is likely coming to your county, too.  Moore County is a yellow-dog Republican county.  But, caught off guard, the majority can get popped with a nasty surprise.

  1. This scheme facilitates machine politics and undue influence upon voters. Election integrity should demand that it be scrapped. What is with your local GOP leadership? Whose side are they on? Not fair elections, obviously. Those churches trying to strongarm their members into partisan votes should have ”guests” attend those services and record everything, and then file complaints about their tax exempt status if they step even an inch over the line. Heck, if we have a Republican president, the IRS might even take action on those complaints.

  2. No election official should be required to work on Sunday. It is crazy to open the polls that day. Poll workers should have that day free to attend church and spend time with their families.

  3. Even my communist home state of Massachusetts has one … UNO … day to vote. Take it or leave it, or vote absentee. That is how it should be. As above, Saturday is a good day for the single Election Day.
    So, we’ll muster at the Election Board meeting at 08:30 am Monday … be there and then we’ll get brunch afterward … and nix this thing for logical and cost reasons. Oh, and let’s not buy off on this BS that it’s for the poor chilllun who go to school …
    See you Monday morning.

  4. I wonder, was there ANY evidence in this county of long lines? Overcrowding? Delays? Or is this just one more Democrat attempt at preparations for elections fraud?

    I’ll bet they could REDUCE the number of polling places and early voting days and STILL serve all the folks who show up. Better still, eliminate early voting altogether and hold elections on SATURDAY.
