    Here's a list of just ACORN related voter fraud.


    AR1998A contractor with ACORN-affiliated Project Vote was arrested for falsifying about 400 voter registration cards.
    CO2005Two ex-ACORN employees were convicted in Denver of perjury for submitting false voter registrations.
    2004An ACORN employee admitted to forging signatures and registering three of her friends to vote 40 times.
    CT2008The New York Post reported that ACORN submitted a voter registration card for a 7-year-old Bridgeport girl. Another 8,000 cards from the same city will be scrutinized for possible fraud.
    FL2009In September, 11 ACORN workers were accused of forging voter registration applications in Miami-Dade County during the last election. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the state attorney’s office scoured hundreds of suspicious applications provided by ACORN and found 197 of 260 contained personal ID information that did not match any living person.
    2008Election officials in Brevard County have given prosecutors more than 23 suspect registrations from ACORN. The state's Division of Elections is also investigating complaints in Orange and Broward Counties.
    2004A Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokesman said ACORN was “singled out” among suspected voter registration groups for a 2004 wage initiative because it was “the common thread” in the agency’s fraud investigations.
    IN2008Election officials in Indiana have thrown out more than 4,000 ACORN-submitted voter registrations after finding they had identical handwriting and included the names of many deceased Indianans, and even the name of a fast food restaurant.
    MI2008Clerks in Detroit found a "sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent [voter] applications" from the Michigan branch of ACORN. Those applications have been turned over to the U.S. Attorney's office for investigation.
    2004The Detroit Free Press reported that “overzealous or unscrupulous campaign workers in several Michigan counties are under investigation for voter-registration fraud, suspected of attempting to register nonexistent people or forging applications for already-registered voters.” ACORN-affiliate Project Vote was one of two groups suspected of turning in the documents.
    MO2008Nearly 400 ACORN-submitted registrations in Kansas City have been rejected due to duplication or fake information.
    2007Four ACORN employees were indicted in Kansas City for charges including identity theft and filing false registrations during the 2006 election.
    2006Eight ACORN employees in St. Louis were indicted on federal election fraud charges. Each of the eight faces up to five years in prison for forging signatures and submitting false information.
    2003Of 5,379 voter registration cards ACORN submitted in St. Louis, only 2,013 of those appeared to be valid. At least 1,000 are believed to be attempts to register voters illegally.
    MN2004During a traffic stop, police found more than 300 voter registration cards in the trunk of a former ACORN employee, who had violated a legal requirements that registration cards be submitted to the Secretary of State within 10 days of being filled out and signed.
    NC2008County elections officials have sent suspicious voter registration applications to the state Board of Elections. Many of the applications had similar or identical names, but with different addresses or dates of birth.
    2004North Carolina officials investigated ACORN for submitting fake voter registration cards.
    NM2008Prosecutors are investigating more than 1,100 ACORN-submitted voter registration cards after a county clerk found them to be fraudulent. Many of the cards included duplicate names and slightly altered personal information.
    2005Four ACORN employees submitted as many as 3,000 potentially fraudulent signatures on the group’s Albuquerque ballot initiative. A local sheriff added: “It’s safe to say the forgery was widespread.”
    2004An ACORN employee registered a 13-year-old boy to vote. Citing this and other examples, New Mexico State Representative Joe Thompson stated that ACORN was “manufacturing voters” throughout New Mexico.
    NV2009Nevada authorities indicted ACORN on 26 counts of voter registration fraud and 13 counts of illegally compensating canvassers. ACORN provided a bonus compensation program called “Blackjack” or “21+” for any canvasser who registered more than 20 voters per shift, which is illegal under Nevada law.
    2008Nevada state authorities raided ACORN's Las Vegas headquarters as part of a task force investigation of election fraud. Fraudulent registrations included players from the Dallas Cowboys.
    OH2008ACORN activists gave Ohio residents cash and cigarettes in exchange for filling out voter registration card, according to the New York Post. Some voters claim to have registered dozens of times, and one man says he signed up on 72 cards.
    2007A man in Reynoldsburg was indicted on two felony counts of illegal voting and false registration, after being registered by ACORN to vote in two separate counties.
    2004A grand jury indicted a Columbus ACORN worker for submitting a false signature and false voter registration form. In Franklin County, two ACORN workers submitted what the director of the board of election supervisors called “blatantly false” forms. In Cuyahoga County, ACORN and its affiliate Project Vote submitted registration cards that had the highest rate of errors for any voter registration group.
    PA2009Seven ACORN workers in the Pittsburgh area were indicted for submitting falsified voter registration forms. Six of the seven were also indicted for registering voters under an illegal quota system.
    2008State election officials have thrown out 57,435 voter registrations, the majority of which were submitted by ACORN. The registrations were thrown out after officials found "clearly fraudulent" signatures, vacant lots listed as addresses, and other signs of fraud.
    2008An ACORN employee in West Reading, PA, was sentenced to up to 23 months in prison for identity theft and tampering with records. A second ACORN worker pleaded not guilty to the same charges and is free on $10,000 bail.
    2004Reading’s Director of Elections received calls from numerous individuals complaining that ACORN employees deliberately put inaccurate information on their voter registration forms. The Berks County director of elections said voter fraud was “absolutely out of hand,” and added: “Not only do we have unintentional duplication of voter registration but we have blatant duplicate voter registrations.” The Berks County deputy director of elections added that ACORN was under investigation by the Department of Justice.
    TX2008In Harris County, nearly 10,000 ACORN-submitted registrations were found to be invalid, including many with clearly fraudulent addresses or other personal information.
    2008ACORN turned in the voter registration form of David Young, who told reporters “The signature is not my signature. It’s not even close.” His social security number and date of birth were also incorrect.
    VA2005In 2005, the Virginia State Board of Elections admonished Project Vote and ACORN for turning in a significant number of faulty voter registrations. An audit revealed that 83% of sampled registrations that were rejected for carrying false or questionable information were submitted by Project Vote. Many of these registrations carried social security numbers that exist for other people, listed non-existent or commercial addresses, or were for convicted felons in violation of state and federal election law.

    In a letter to ACORN, the State Board of Elections reported that 56% of the voter registration applications ACORN turned in were ineligible. Further, a full 35% were not submitted in a timely manner, as required by law. The State Board of Elections also commented on what appeared to be evidence of intentional voter fraud. "Additionally,” they wrote, “information appears to have been altered on some applications where information given by the applicant in one color ink has been scratched through and re-entered in another color ink. Any alteration of a voter registration application is a Class 5 Felony in accordance with § 24.2-1009 of the Code of Virginia."
    WA2007Three ACORN employees pleaded guilty, and four more were charged, in the worst case of voter registration fraud in Washington state history. More than 2,000 fraudulent voter registration cards were submitted by the group during a voter registration drive.
    WI2008At least 33,000 ACORN-submitted registrations in Milwaukee have been called into question after it was found that the organizations had been using felons as registration workers, in violation of state election rules. Two people involved in the ongoing Wisconsin voter fraud investigation have been charged with felonies.

    First of all, I resent the heck out of Salty's "rich white man's party" racist comment in post #12, which I will be reporting. For your information, the Democrat party is full of rich white men as well as other colors and socioeconomic levels as is the Republican party so please cool it with that racist crap.

    One of the things being overlooked is the ability to use an absentee ballot in most states. It is generally very easy to get one of these and it generally does not require a photo ID to get, which, BTW, is another loophole for fraud.

    There are very many places that require some form of photo ID, including entering federal buildings, flying on commercial planes, cash checks, drive a car, check into a hotel, etc. so there really is not much excuse not to get one even if you never intend on voting.

    The whole squawk is to allow people who predominantly vote democrat to vote under any name they want to. In other words, cheat or fraud---period. There is no rational, sane excuse for it. The left is grasping for straws on this. Those court rulings were by more liberal judges legislating from the bench.

    There are so many opportunities for free public transit that most anyone wanting to register can get a lift down there and back. Registration requires very little in the way of proof of who you are-- basically at your word. Around here, they are advertising photo IDs with no birth certificate or SSN card required. How easy is that?

    Whether there was a single case of voter fraud or not should not be the issue. Verifying the person registered is actually qualified to vote as a US citizen and not a felon is important so the voter registration is still corrupt.

    Refer to pages 23 and 26 for real voter fraud numbers

    The Brennan Center for Justice estimates voter fraud at a whopping .0004 percent here in the US.

    Once agian my point:

    The Conservlicans are using the voter fraud card as a smoke screen for their real agenda.

    Not wanting minorities, students, and the elderly to vote in the November election.

    Seriously, dude? Think for yourself for once.

    So instead of simply allowing people to show a DL and or their SSC at the polls, we are trying to force more BS onto the already burdened working man. If you work during the day how are you going to get your card? Use your lunch to go sit in line at the courthouse or DMV? We already have to do this with vehicle tags, drivers licenses, doctors visits, dentists appointments, and just about anything else you could imagine that needs to get done on regular working hours. Are we supposed to miss out on work to do these things?

    It seems to me that the people not working will be able to get their cards much easier than we will....so who are they really hurting?

    Even by you own previously posted links it shows only 1400 possible voters casting votes of the more then 7.3 million eligable voters over a three year period in Michigan.

    As I stated previously: It is merely a smoke screen trying to hide your true agenda.

    Again show us the statistics that support your claim of such outragous voter fraud going on in this country.

    If you can do that I will be happy to change my opinion regarding this issue.
    Please tell me you are joking. If you don't realize that voting is being civicly responsible, you can't possibly understand much of anything else in this conversation.

    If you cannot produce any identifying who you are, how can you prove that you are of age and a citizen?

    You keep claiming that there is no evidence of voter fraud, then you contradict yourself by stating the amount of voter fraud that has been caught is neglegible.

    Everything you have posted here is an oxymoron. You have contradicted every point with another point.

    I am for people proving that they are who they say they are, but the republican party who is so much against other laws in which tax payer money is used to enforce what they call evil government enforcement is by all means enabling the very thing that they say that they wish to undo.
    So, you are for having voter ID, but won't support it because it is promoted by Republicans? Really?

    No...I am for voter ID...but not for making us get MORE ID. We have enough ways to identify ourselves, making us get more only puts a burden on the people and costs more tax payer money.

    It's funny that when voter fraud is uncovered it is always benefitting only one side. ACORN wasn't registering Republicans.

    Personally I think that voting should be reserved for net positive citizen tax payers, citizen property owners, and citizen retirees with 20+ years of net positive tax returns, but then again I'm just a racist that hates the poor. The recipient class should not be permitted to vote.
    I can't disagree with any of this.

    I don't think anyone was suggesting an additional ID. Any state issued photo ID would suffice. That could be a DL, passport, prison ID, anything legitimate.

    Sorry, doesn't work that way here in America.
    Are you saying that no liberal Democrats are property owners, tax payers, or citizen retirees who have paid taxes for at least 20 years? Are you saying that only conservatives are an asset to the nation?

    It sure sounds like this is what you are saying.

    Try again.
    But it is 30,000 potential names that can be used by those who do not have to prove they are not the dead person they claim to be when they go to the poles to vote. Simply requiring every voter to prove they are who they claim to be puts an end to this type of voter fraud that has been used in the past and can still be used where voter ID is not required.

    As usual you are tap dancing and slithering around the issue.

    I never said there was NO voter fraud.

    Voter fraud is neglegible in this country and is not the problem you conservlicans make it out to be as I have linked in my post.

    Anyone who states that voter fraud is a major problem in spite of the evidence is obviously completely biased and without any credibility.
