Seth Cohn - Abnormally High Same Day Registration!

Received Via Facebook From RLCNH Posting By Andrew Manuse  /bobdm NHInsider

Please share widely, and take action:

In many towns, same day registration was abnormally high, regulars in the town didn't recognize many of the people, lots of out of state IDs were shown, and out of state license plates were common place. Was there fraud? I dunno, but you can help find out.

According to a town clerk, the voter registration affidavits are not public records - only the voter checklist is. Some towns will not let you register to vote with just an affidavit. Those town required both a photo ID and proof of residence in order to register. Some towns did let you vote via just an affidavit. God only knows how thoroughly those will be checked out.

The _only_ way to verify the residence and eligibility of those who cast votes yesterday in NH (and there were easily tens of thousands of same day folks) on nothing more than an affidavit is for those of us in the towns that saw a significant influx of same-day registrations via affidavit to go to your town's website TODAY and download the most current voter checklist.

Then, that list can be compared to the checklist your town will be posting soon with those new voters added. Compile a list of names and addresses that weren't on the list on the previously posted version you downloaded earlier and look for irregularities. Are these real people, who live in your town still? Or were they here to vote and gave an valid address (canvassers were going door to door over and over, using iphone apps to record data, certainly compiled very detailed lists of who was voting for whom and who might not bother to show up, etc..)

If people were registering and voting fraudulently, it shouldn't be too much work to uncover such incidents. Don't hold your breath waiting for Governor Hassan to order an investigation. But public outcry and data collected by the people will be hard to ignore.
