A new report shows that more than 6,500 people using out-of-state driver's licenses registered on Election Day 2016 to vote in New Hampshire, but since then hardly any of them got a state license or registered a motor vehicle.
New Hampshire allows same-day voter registration, as do 14 other states. The theory behind the lenient policy is that voters who forgot to register will still be able to cast a ballot. But the policy is ripe for abuse: Poll workers take ID – even out-of-state driver's licenses – and, as long as the person asserts that he or she is a U.S. citizen who lives in the state, they get to vote.
But New Hampshire House Speaker Shawn Jasper, a Republican, took a look at the numbers long after the election, The Washington Times reported.
Though Mr. Jasper’s findings don’t prove those accusations, they do corroborate them. The numbers read this way:
⦁ 6,540 people registered and voted on Nov. 8, based on presenting out-of-state licenses.
⦁ As of Aug. 30, about 15% (1,014 of the voters) had been issued New Hampshire driver’s licenses.
⦁ Οf the remaining 5,526, barely more than 200 (3.3%) had registered a motor vehicle in New Hampshire.
New Hampshire law gives drivers 60 days upon establishing residence to obtain a state license.
But more than 80% of voters who registered on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, or 5,313 of them, neither had a state license nor registered a motor vehicle almost 10 months later.
So, there's that. But there's more.
Kris W. Kobach, the Secretary of State of Kansas, penned a piece in Breitbart on Thursday that took the numbers one step further, saying that 5,313 number above was "more than enough to swing two very important elections."
The closest major election was the contest between incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte and challenger Maggie Hassan (D). Hassan won the election by a razor-thin margin of 1,017 votes. Those 5,313 fraudulent votes were more than enough to swing the election. If 59.2% or more of them went for Hassan, then the election was stolen through voter fraud. That’s likely, since the surrounding states are Democrat strongholds.
It’s also possible that New Hampshire’s four electoral college votes were swung to Hillary Clinton through illegal voting by nonresidents. Clinton won New Hampshire by only 2,732 votes. If 74.8% of the 5,513 fraudulent votes were cast for Clinton, then the presidential election in New Hampshire was tipped as well.
If the presidential contest had been closer and had come down to a margin of three or four electoral college votes, then this voter fraud might have had extraordinary consequences. Regardless, in the Senate contest, it is highly likely that voting by nonresidents changed the result.
But just like so many stories out there, you won't hear this report from the mainstream media.
