GOP Candidate Voted In Both Illinois And Wisconsin In The Same Year

Source: Talking Points Memo


ByDaniel StraussPublishedSeptember 24, 2014, 9:42 AM EDT

A Republican candidate running for the Illinois state legislature has switched the state where she voted between Illinois and Wisconsin in the past few years.

The candidate, Kathy Myalls (pictured, left), voted in a primary election in Illinois and three months after that voted in Wisconsin's recall election aimed at recalling Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker (pictured right), according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Myalls also voted in Wisconsin in the 2012 presidential election. The following spring she came back to Illinois to vote there.

Myalls was asked about her vote in the Walker recall in an interview with the Sun-Times.

"No. I don't think I did," Myalls told the Chicago newspaper. "I don't think they cancelled my registration in Fontana. And that may be what you're seeing. They didn't automatically cancel it."

2. Getting Dems Out To Vote Once

 

is a challenge.

So far the few cases of what the GOP calls voter fraud, involves republican's doing the fraud.

3. Hell, a Texan GOP candidate was documented as voting in Texas and Pennsylvania

and has never been charged for it - he very nearly won his election, even after the Republican party withdrew their support for him (too late to put up another candidate): http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021968634

The clear message was It's OK If You're A Republican, of course.

15. Was it illegal in either state?

 

In the US we vote by state. Thus it is possible to be eligible to vote in two or more states. If you meet each state's voting requirements perfectly legal. Thus a person could vote in a Pennsylvania primary in May. Move to Texas and register to vote in that state's election come June or July. Move again and vote in a third state for the November election. All of this would be legal.

Now voting in an election in two different when the election is held the same day would be harder, but if the state' define who can vote differently then possible. For example someone retains his Pennsylvania n residency while in the military, but finds he or she also meets the residency requirements for the state he or she is based in, finds him or herself eligible to vote in both states. Thus under the laws of both states such a voter can vote in both states.

Remember we do not vote on a national level even for national office. We vote by STATE. Senators and members of the House are elected by the voters of their state. Even the President is elected BY STATE, not by how many votes are cast on National level.

Thus the reason the candidate was NOT charged was probably because he broke no law in either state for his votes were legal under each state's law.

16. Oh, yeah, it's illegal in Texas

You'd have a screwed up system if it was OK to vote for a presidential contest twice.

7. Removal from Registration List: Under what circumstances can my name be removed from the list of registered voters?
Response: The county registrar shall cancel a voter’s registration immediately on receipt of any of the following:
...
 notice from a voter registration official in another state that the voter has registered to vote outside the state of Texas

http://www.866ourvote.org/state/materials/TX-Manual-2012-FINAL.pdf

If it were legal, the Republicans wouldn't have dropped him. He voted in the general election, just just primaries, in both states: http://www.juanitajean.com/2013/03/28/an-open-letter-to-cathy-engelbrecht-queen-of-true-the-vote/

As the Texas voting site points out, people who may have a claim to be resident in 2 states, such as students, have to choose:

Lesson One: You have to register

If you’re a student who spends several weeks or months a year in different locations but wants to vote in Texas, you’ll need to decide which place in Texas is the place you call “home,” i.e., where you intend to return after you’ve been away. If you consider your parents’ address to be your permanent residence, you may use that address as your registration address. If you would like to register to vote at your college address, you may do so, but you can’t be registered in both places.

If you consider yourself a permanent resident of another state, you’ll need to consult with officials there for registration and ballot-by-mail procedures.

13. Republicans Silent............

 


And of course Bill O'Reilly and all his right-wing friends who were screaming about voter fraud by Democrats say nothing, they are silent.

Not to mention this is not just voter fraud by the average person, it's voter fraud by a Republican running for office, and yet the Republicans on Fox, etc. have totally ignored the entire story.

But if one Democrat makes a mistake in voting, that is not even real voter fraud, they report that a hundred times for a week.
