I note with anger and frustration that illegal voting may have changed the result of the 2016 Presidential and Senatorial elections in New Hampshire.
Newly available data is casting doubt on the integrity of the presidential election in New Hampshire in 2016, which Hillary Clinton won by just over 2,700 votes.
Over 6,000 voters in New Hampshire had used same-day voter registration procedures to register and vote simultaneously for president. The current New Hampshire speaker of the House, Shawn Jasper, sought and obtained data about what happened to these 6,000 “new” New Hampshire voters who showed up on Election Day.
It seems the overwhelming majority of them can no longer be found in New Hampshire.
. . .
The Public Interest Legal Foundation received information that 70 percent of the same-day registrants used out-of-state photo ID to vote in the 2016 presidential election in New Hampshire and to utilize same-day registration.
Gov. Maggie Hassan, a Democrat, also defeated incumbent U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte by only 1,017 votes.

The question then becomes: if those 6,000-odd voters can’t be proved to have been New Hampshire residents, and thus eligible to vote, why are their votes still counted in the election result? Surely the only fair and reasonable solution would be to delete them from the results altogether? Some may argue that such votes can’t be identified. If that’s the case, why not? Surely, if there’s doubt over whether or not someone’s eligible to vote, their ballots should be sequestered or segregated in some fashion until it can be proved that they are eligible?
This whole thing smells to high heaven. One of New Hampshire’s two Senate seats may, as I write these words, be filled illegally by a candidate who won it through electoral fraud. How can that possibly be allowed to stand? It’s dishonest, plain and simple.
I submit that, if same-day voter registration is allowed, there should be some way to clearly identify all such voters, and segregate their ballots from the others cast on election day until such time as their eligibility to vote can be proved. If it can’t be proved within a reasonable time – which should be before the result is officially ratified – their votes should not count towards the result.
What say you, readers?
