More “Irregularities” Found in Illinois Voting

It’s not a bug. It’s a feature.

Illinois Senate Republicans are calling for suspending Illinois’ automatic voter registration program after further issues with the system came to light during a State Board of Elections meeting this week.

State election officials have blocked the registration of roughly 4,700 16-year-olds whose information was sent to the board by the secretary of state’s office through the automatic voter registration program, spokesman Matt Dietrich said Thursday.

The issue was raised at the board’s Wednesday meeting, where it also came to light that some U.S. citizens who were applying for licenses through the Real ID program had their information sent to the elections board despite opting out of automatic voter registration.

The revelations come as the program already is under scrutiny for a mix-up that resulted in 545 possible non-U.S. citizens being registered to vote. Of those, 15 voted in elections in November 2018 and spring 2019, including two in Chicago, officials have said. However, eight of those people voted in elections prior to the implementation of automatic voter registration.

    Liberals know what they are doing in fixing elections. That is what socialists do.

    Awful. Just awful.

    Did Jiffy write the code for this system?

    Inquiring minds, and all that………

    Maybe you wrote the code, Dad29, just to make them look bad!

    Typical liberal playbook,  joke about it being the opponents fault and fail to denounce the underlying detestable liberal issue….this is why the nation is in such a state of total moral decay.

    Or we could blame the software development and testing process and not assume there was some conspiracy that somehow remained undiscovered.

    I just wonder where else this happening. California, New York, other Democrat dominated states?
    I hope they prosecute those did vote and throw their butts in jail to serve as a deterrent and then deport them.

    Why does it always error in favor of Democrats?

    Kevin, why would you make a statement like that?  You have some evidence that this favors Democrats?
