Entrepreneurs for Free Enterprise Announces the Launch of the Maryland Voter Alliance

Group will be dedicated to ensuring fraud-free elections at every level – local, state, and federal- and joins a growing number of voter integrity groups nationwide

 

ROCKVILLE, MD – December 9, 2014 – Entrepreneurs for Free Enterprise (EFFE), as part of its continued commitment to fighting for free and fair elections across the county and for the preservation of the essential founding freedoms the United States, announces today that it has formed a voter integrity organization, The Maryland Voter Alliance, to continue to focus its efforts on stamping out voter fraud in elections at every level, from local to state to federal. The launch of this new organization follows EFFE’s continued activism through its partnerships with other leading election integrity groups, including True the Vote and The Virginia Voters Alliance over the past several months. In this capacity, EFFE has remained committed to raising awareness among state boards of elections, the federal government, and the general public about the grave inaccuracies in current electoral systems as well as the wealth of issues that invite fraud, incorrect data on the voter rolls, and confirmed instances of double and non-citizen voting that continue to plague the electoral process and threaten the essential freedoms of all Americans.

 

The newly-formed Maryland Voter Alliance will establish a dedicated presence and expert team of committed individuals to focus on several key issues at the epicenter of the flaws in the electoral system that are opening the door ever wider to voter fraud, seen in the most recent mid-term elections held earlier this month.

These include, among others:

  • Confirmed instances of duplicate and interstate voting- as seen in most recent findings by Virginia Voters Alliance, that identified a total of 43,893 duplicate registrations between Maryland and Virginia, with 164 individuals of these actually casting votes in both states in the 2012 Presidential Election.
    • Non-citizen voting – representing a flagrant violation of federal law that states that only U.S. citizens are eligible to vote, only once per election, in all 50 states. Numerous recent cases of non-citizen voting have occurred, including:
      • 278 confirmed non-citizen votes cast in Virginia, and at least 10 identified non-citizens who cast votes in General and Primary elections in 2012 in Frederick County, MD; and
      • Countless other non-citizens also remain on the voter rolls, opening the door for potential fraudulent voting activity in the future.  This data has been continually presented and subsequently ignored by state boards of elections and the federal government.

 

  • Flagrant inaccuracies on the voter rolls, providing the perfect ‘breeding ground’ for voter fraud and “Dirty Elections,” with little to no current oversight to track these occurrences and prevent future infractions.  Common causes of ‘dirty’ voter rolls include:
    • Deceased voters who remain actively registered, some who appear to have cast ballots post-mortem;
    • Individuals with no history of voting activity for more than two consecutive federal cycles;
    • Inactive registrations suddenly ‘activated,’
    • Registrations with incorrect or non-existent addresses;
    • Underage or felon voters;
    • Flawed online voter registration systems that lack necessary monitoring and tracking infrastructures to ensure individuals are registering under their own correct name and credentials;
    • Individuals fraudulently voting as other people via absentee ballot primarily; and
    • Individuals who have commercial addresses listed as their places of residence.

Dedicating continued, active attention to these persistent issues is at the center of the Maryland Voter Alliance’s founding principle goal and mission, to eradicate voter fraud and preserve free and fair elections for all Americans. As part of this effort, the group will also continue to fight for greater attention to be paid at the state, local, and federal levels to require regulations and institute infrastructures to track and oversee the voter registration process to ensure only eligible individuals are able to be added and to spot and delete ineligible or inaccurate information going forward. As Mary Cramer Wagner, Director of Voter Registration for the Maryland Board of Elections stated in a recent article in The Frederick News-Post on the topic of a current lawsuit alleging that non-citizens who remain registered to vote could influence the outcome of the recent November 4 election It is ‘possible’ that non-citizens are voting,” Wagner stated. “There is no database that I can or local boards can turn to and say, ‘Aha, Mary Cramer Wagner is not a legal citizen.’”

 

To correct this serious issue with wide-reaching impacts, the Maryland Voter Alliance is fighting for the passage of Voter ID laws in Maryland as well as for the state to join the free Interstate Crosscheck system sponsored by Kansas that now includes voter registration data from 33 states as an effective method to stamp out inaccuracies on the state’s voter rolls and in so doing, make strides to eradicating overall voter fraud.

 

“It is essential that Maryland, along with every other state, do a much better job of complying with the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), also known as the ‘Motor Voter’ Act, particularly Section 8, which requires them to review and clean up their voter rolls every year to delete ineligible voters and inaccurate, outdated information,” EFFE Steering Committee Member and Founder of the Maryland Voter Alliance, Robyn Sachs stated. “This is not a well-managed or enforced system at present, and as a result, these grave issues are continuing to take place, inviting fraud and polluting our overall electoral process and outcomes. Dirty rolls produce dirty elections, and we are committed to taking a leading role in the fight to bring fraud-free elections to all Americans! This also begs the question, if voter integrity groups can spot these problems so easily, why can’t the state and local electoral boards?”
