Recently, I helped my friend, Terry Roland, in his campaign for senate district 29. I built Terry's website, generated phone call lists, wrote programs that pulled voter phone numbers from the internet, and even ran an autodialer to call potential voters. I also helped by looking at the voter data as it came in during both early and regular voting. This was the first time I've actually seen the voters names after they voted in a particular election. The data I received during and after early voting was the voter's name, address and registration number. I wrote a program that took the election data and retrieved additional information from the master voter database like, the address where they registered, their sex, race, dob and senate district. That program allowed us to look at where votes were coming from and to make some judgements about how we were doing. It also allowed me to check the voters against the general sessions and criminal court clerks websites by name and dob. I initially found about 16 felons, but 11 of those have apparently had their rights restored. That leaves five people who should not have voted.
It has now been almost a month since the election and no one has said anything about investigating this problem or any pending indictments. Since none of the "law enforcement" leaders have taken steps to ensure this doesn't happen in the future, I have prepared a document that I will deliver to the foreman of the Grand Jury this week seeking an indictment of the five felonious voters and an investigation of the election commissions database. The five felons I found came from the pool of about 8,000 voters. The entire database contains over 608,000 potential voters. If that percentage holds true for the rest of the data, there could be as many as 375 additional felons.
A cursory examination of the voter's database shows there are all kinds of problems with the data. There needs to be a detailed analysis of the data and an inquiry as to whether there are any deceased people included and whether or not there are any non-existant addresses, etc. I have been told the commission knows the data is corrupt, but they don't think it is a problem. Keep in mind there is a Democrat majority on the commission and therefore, th Republicans have virtually no say. Party affiliation aside, the process should not be skewed to favor one side or the other. For voters who don't subscribe to either party, I feel for them because they are truly disenfranchised.
Why doesn't the election commission want a clean database? Can it be in the interest of certain Democrats to have corrupt data? I think we already know that is the case, but hopefully the grand jury will look into this matter and force a fair election.
