In less than two years the most important primary in the nation will take place in New Hampshire. The long time Democrat Secretary of State Bill Gardner is concerned that Same Day registration can lead to vote fraud. From a recent TV interview:
[TV Personality]: ALL THAT'S NEEDED TO CAST A BALLOT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE RIGHT NOW IS A SIGNATURE. SWEARING YOU ARE WHO YOU SAY YOU ARE. THE SECRETARY OF STATE BELIEVES THAT'S NOT ENOUGH.
[Secretary of State Bill Gardner]: WE'VE HAD TWO ELECTIONS NOW, WITH ACTION TAKEN BY THE LEGISLATURE OVERTURNED BY THE COURTS.
[TV Personality:]ARE YOU CONCERNED THAT NEW HAMPSHIRE'S CURRENT LAW MAKES IT VULNERABLE FOR VOTER FRAUD?
[Secretary of State Bill Gardner]: WELL, I THINK THE VOTER REGISTRATION FORM THAT THE LEGISLATURE PASSED WAS AN ATTEMPT TO PREVENT
[TV Personality:] SO YES?
[Secretary of State Bill Gardner]: YES.
The longtime New Hampshire Secretary of State Gardner knows of the dangers of same day registration.
While Gardner is rightly concerned with the system he is understandably reluctant to talk about it given the political attacks he is likely to face from Democrat vote fraud deniers such as the Brennan Center and Al Sharpton. The vote fraud deniers’ favorite voting system is the same day registration system that makes vote fraud so easy and that Gardner is so worried about.
While Gardner is concerned but reluctant to discuss, others in New Hampshire are willing to talk about the problem and explain Gardner’s concerns:
"We have a problem," Carson said. "We have a problem with what Gardner called 'drive-by voting' -- people coming here for the day, voting and then leaving."
Wouldn’t it be ironic if the Democrat primary in New Hampshire was won by the campaign that can import the most “drive by voters” from other states? We salute the courage of Secretary Gardner for standing up to the vote fraud deniers.
