Tension And Protests Mark Trump Voting Commission Meeting

Exclusive – Kobach: It Appears That Out-of-State Voters Changed the Outcome of the New Hampshire US Senate Race

The liberal site Vox reported on studies of voter ID laws in November 2016 and claimed that "study after study has found that voter ID laws have little to no effect on voter turnout".

In the presidential race, Clinton defeated Donald Trump in New Hampshire by 2,736 votes.

"The claim goes something like this: The commission will meet, then they'll recommend things like photo ID or some other election security measure, then the states will adopt them". Even if it does make recommendations, he said, the commission can't force states to adopt them.

FESSLER: But just last week, the commission's vice chair, another Republican, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, seemed to contradict him.

In the September 7 article, Kobach said out-of-state voters "likely" changed - through voter fraud - the outcome of New Hampshire's 2016 U.S. Senate race, in which Democrat Maggie Hassan unseated incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte by fewer than 800 votes. When he won the electoral vote but lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes, he claimed he would have won that, too, "if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally".

"I am deeply concerned that falsehoods about illegal voting are being spread as a pretext for restricting access to the ballot box", Shaheen said.

Kobach also was admonished by fellow commission member and Democratic New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner after clarifying recent comments he made alleging voter fraud in New Hampshire.

Iran FM Departs Tehran for Russian City of Sochi
Tuesday's agreement involves restoring the main control centre of Syria's electricity grid in the capital, Damascus, SANA said. In January, Iran's government and entities close to the IRGC signed major telecommunications and mining deals with Damascus.

New Hampshire law gives those new voters 60 days to get a state driver's license; yet, Kobach noted, of those 6,540 people who registered on November 7, 5,526 people have not yet obtained a license.

He criticized Kobach, who is the Kansas secretary of state, for calling into question the election's "real and valid" results.

The Democratic Gardner says New Hampshire citizens have a proud tradition of civic participation, and he isn't about to turn away from that now.

"The specter of extreme political partisanship already threatens our ability to reach a consensus", Gardner said.

With its latest, dangerously false claim about New Hampshire, it's more obvious than ever that the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity is making moves to destroy voting rights. It said it needed the data to review possible cases of voter fraud.

The testimony marked a departure for the commission, which was formed to look into fraud and barriers to voting, but which heard that a potentially greater threat to confidence in American elections is the chance for enemy actors to meddle.

The incident illustrated one of the main problems the panel faces as it goes forward with its stated mission of finding ways to instill more public confidence in USA elections: The voting process is complicated and data are hard to come by, a point several witnesses emphasized on Tuesday.

SDF maintains progress in Raqqa while continuing Deir ez-Zor push
He said the SDF had advanced to six kilometres from the eastern banks of the Euphrates River across from Deir Ezzor city. The US-led raid in the village of Al-Shahabat killed 12 of a family, including five children.

The new revelations come after Kobach was repudiated by voting experts for his outlandish claim in a Breitbart column hat 5,000 out-of-state voters cast ballots in New Hampshire in 2016.

Because of its swing-state status, Kobach said, "New Hampshire faces risks that other states do not face".

Uproar has become standard practice for the fraud panel, officially called the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.

Joining the protesters was former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander, a Democrat and founder of Let America Vote. If they are picking mainstream Republican officials and/or academics to man this commission it will be an abject failure because there aren't any that know anything about this or who have paid any attention to this issue over the years. Nor is it required that they transfer their driver's license to New Hampshire nor register their vehicle there.

For a problem that critics say doesn't exist, Americans seem to have a lot of stories of voter fraud or the potential for it.

ME secretary of state and commission member Matthew Dunlap expressed concern in the meeting that using a system for background checks could create "unintended consequences".

Kobach, by the way, said he anticipated that the commission will hold four more meetings by next spring. The Pence-Kobach commission has other designs, and I urge Granite Staters, and people throughout the nation, to be vigilant.
