Speaking of Election Rigging... The Crosscheck Progam

The GOP's Stealth War Against Voters

 

The data is processed through a system called the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program, which is being promoted by a powerful Republican operative, and its lists of potential duplicate voters are kept confidential. But Rolling Stone obtained a portion of the list and the names of 1 million targeted voters. According to our analysis, the Crosscheck list disproportionately threatens solid Democratic constituencies: young, black, Hispanic and Asian-American voters – with some of the biggest possible purges underway in Ohio and North Carolina, two crucial swing states with tight Senate races.

 

Like all weapons of vote suppression, Crosscheck is a response to the imaginary menace of mass voter fraud. In the mid-2000s, after the Florida-recount debacle, the Bush administration launched a five-year investigation into the allegedly rampant crime but found scant evidence of wrongdoing. Still, the GOP has perpetuated the myth in every national election since. Recently, North Carolina Board of Elections chief Kim Strach testified to her legislature that 35,750 voters are "registered in North Carolina and another state and voted in both in the 2012 general election." Yet despite hiring an ex-FBI agent to lead the hunt, the state has charged exactly zero double voters from the Crosscheck list. Nevertheless, tens of thousands face the loss of their ability to vote – all for the sake of preventing a crime that rarely happens. So far, Crosscheck has tagged an astonishing 7.2 million suspects, yet we found no more than four perpetrators who have been charged with double voting or deliberate double registration.

 

On its surface, Crosscheck seems quite reasonable. Twenty-eight participating states share their voter lists and, in the name of dispassionate, race-blind Big Data, seek to ensure the rolls are up to date. To make sure the system finds suspect voters, Crosscheck supposedly matches first, middle and last name, plus birth date, and provides the last four digits of a Social Security number for additional verification.

 

In reality, however, there have been signs that the program doesn't operate as advertised. Some states have dropped out of Crosscheck, citing problems with its methodology, as Oregon's secretary of state recently explained: "We left [Crosscheck] because the data we received was unreliable."

 

We had Mark Swedlund, a database expert whose clients include eBay and American Express, look at the data from Georgia and Virginia, and he was shocked by Crosscheck's "childish methodology." He added, "God forbid your name is Garcia, of which there are 858,000 in the U.S., and your first name is Joseph or Jose. You're probably suspected of voting in 27 states."

 

Swedlund's statistical analysis found that African-American, Latino and Asian names predominate, a simple result of the Crosscheck matching process, which spews out little more than a bunch of common names. No surprise: The U.S. Census data shows that minorities are overrepresented in 85 of 100 of the most common last names. If your name is Washington, there's an 89 percent chance you're African-American. If your last name is Hernandez, there's a 94 percent chance you're Hispanic. If your name is Kim, there's a 95 percent chance you're Asian.

Voter fraud exists in WV but it seems to only effect the rural counties and local elections. Lincoln County, WV seems to have an issue almost every year. The running joke is that the cemeteries empty for Lincoln and Mingo County elections.

well, in years past, I have written error/duplication tracking software for giant

databases of names and addresses.

 

Even a simpleton programmer would know better than to just use the first and last name.

 

The complainers are either really ignorant of how the tracking works, or they are politically motivated.

 

Of course there are so many of the same names. but addresses how long lived there, previous addresses, middle full names,

birthdates/calculated ages, birthplaces, spouses' name, veteran/branch of, has to come into play,

because timothy smithie can also be tim smithie and t smithie.

 

and it doesn't mean that they can't vote, but if all the things above were different except the name...fine.

 

But if they all get flagged for being the same, and they end up on the possible illegal dual voting list....

 

WTF does that say that lends itself to "war on voters, especially blacks and latinos" ???

 

It doesn't . But liberals desperately want it to. They desperately want voter fraud. That's their point

of having tens of thousands of illegals into our country. Fast as they can, unvetted, doesn't matter if

they've committed violent crimes..... obamao and co. demand they be let go.

 

"every new democrat illegal vote"....."counts".

If it happens on both sides why don't the Democrats want voter identification?

 

Because the disenfranchisement of legitimate voters far, far outweighs any demonstrable benefit.
