Video shows pollworkers were primary problem

Presidential hopeful Donald Trump is fond of saying, "If you don't have borders you don't have a country."

We'd offer that with New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary, there's an analogous paradigm, namely, "If you don't have election laws you don't have an election."

What was recorded in Project Vertias' expose on election laws released on Wednesday is the kind of folderol that should make any red-blooded "Live Free or Die" Granite Stater mad as hell.

The video shows out-of-staters bluntly telling poll workers that they don't live here but want to vote on Tuesday. And what do the poll workers do? They tell them how to do it.

Shameful, egregious, shocking.


A Project Veritas video four years ago that showed similar voter fraud prompted New Hampshire lawmakers to institute a ID-mandated voter registration.

But it has no teeth. Poll workers unwaveringly told videographers posing as out-of-staters how to skirt the system, by signing an affidavit saying they lived in New Hampshire and would be here indefinitely.

"How long do I have to live in New Hampshire to be able to do this?" a Project Veritas videographer asks.

The pollworker shrugs their shoulders and mutters something akin to "whatever."

"How long do I have to live here after I vote?" he then asks the pollworker.

"A day?" they reply in uncertain terms. Yes, incredibly, the pollworker appears to be practically making up the rules as he talks.

Most of the poll workers say once the would-be voters sign the affidavit they're free to vote.

No numbers are available yet as to how many affidavits were signed to enable folks to vote on Tuesday. Whether it's one or 10,000, we'd like to know.

It's doubtful, however, the state would spend the money to investigate each and every affidavit to verify the authenticity of the "resident."

Truly a black eye for New Hampshire's vaunted first-in-the-nation primary.

Stealing or vandalizing political signs can draw a fine or even prison time in some states.

It's time that states begin to toughen voter fraud laws and close gaps that make a mockery of our free elections.
