Election Officials Ignore Evidence of Interstate Double-Vote Fraud

Update: North Carolina is no longer ignoring the data mentioned in this story. At 8:27 PM, Sept 9, NCSBE Chief Counsel, Katelyn Love officially requested the password to our encrypted NY-NC double-voter project.

New York officials have, thus far, failed to respond to our report and to our do-not-destroy notification.

 

Sep 2, 2020 (Raleigh) Intended as a law enforcement advisory one week ago, Voter Integrity Project submitted evidence of interstate double voting to election agencies in North Carolina and New York, while also asking both states to secure key signature evidence that may be destroyed as early as next Monday, but both states ignored the group’s email.

“Either these people voted illegally in a second state for the same election, or somebody voted in their place,” said Jay DeLancy, Founder of VIP. “The only way to know is for investigators to review the election-related documents signed by these voters in both states, but election officials don’t seem to care.”

Part of VIP’s Aug 27 email to election officials in NY and NC. The message was ignored.

Last Thursday, the group sent both states’ election boards an encrypted spreadsheet and offered the password to any agency employee who would contact VIP by voice or text. After waiting five days for a response, they’re appealing to the media for help.

“Those signed documents are critical for prosecution,” DeLancy said, “so if election officials drag their feet much longer, there will be no hope of prosecution and these people will have gotten away with voter fraud.”

Of all the illegal NY-NC votes VIP found, 67% came from the 2016 general election, and 33% from 2018. A stunning 7% showed deliberate intent by voting in both 2016 and 2018.

A partisan breakdown of the fraudulent voters showed 61% Democrat or Democrat-leaning, 25% Republican or Republican-leaning, and 13% third party or no party preference.

“Whether it was voter fraud or voter impersonation fraud, we know a crime was committed,” said DeLancy. “It’s truly stunning when election officials show no interest in finding out either way.”

Starting in 2013, VIP has generated criminal referrals in three states, based on an audit method they call “confirmatory factor analysis.” Beginning with a match of each voters’ first name, last name, date of birth, and voter history, the group scours public records for indicators that would link the paired voters. This methodology has garnered felony vote fraud convictions in two states.

“As always, we err on the side of caution by only retaining voters found to have common relatives, addresses, job histories, email addresses, and such,” DeLancy said. “For example, a paired voter named John Jones could show his N.C. wife as Patricia and his N.Y. wife as Jenny. Even though Jenny could be a second wife, we would discard that case.”

State investigators have access to databases that would be able to dig deeper and determine whether or not the paired voters represent the same person or two people with the same date of birth.

“With our limited access to private information, we’re only able to alert the public about spotting the tip an iceberg,” said DeLancy. “Investigators now need to determine the size . . . because ignoring icebergs is never a good idea.”
