An “Interstate Crosscheck” has uncovered more than 36,000 instances of voter fraud in the state of North Carolina. The compact is between 28 states to check their voter registration roles against one another.
(WRAL) — State lawmakers last year mandated the State Board of Elections to enter into an “Interstate Crosscheck” – a compact of 28 states that agreed to check their voter registration records against those of other states. The program is run by a Kansas consortium, checking 101 million voter records. The largest states – CA, FL, NY, and TX – are not part of the consortium.
State Board of Elections Executive Director Kim Westbrook Strach delivered the report Wednesday to the legislative Elections Oversight committee.
Strach said North Carolina’s check found 765 registered North Carolina voters who appear to match registered voters in other states on their first names, last names, dates of birth and the final four digits of their Social Security numbers. Those voters appear to have voted in North Carolina in 2012 and also voted in another state in 2012.
“Now we have to look individually at each one,” Strach said. “Could there have been data error?”
The crosscheck also found 35,570 voters in North Carolina who voted in 2012 whose first names, last names and dates of birth match those of voters who voted in other states in 2012, but whose Social Security numbers were not matched.
“I think the big bombshell today is that you have documented voter fraud that has occurred,” said Rep. Tim Moore, R-Cleveland. “We have over 36,000 people who apparently voted in this state illegally and committed felonies.”
I have at least two dozen other instances of fraud from the 2012 election of voter fraud. My guess is this will be dismissed as 36,000 isolated incidents. At what point can we agree that the integrity of the system needs to be protected?
