Once again, the crime of voter fraud, which Democrats say doesn’t exist, has been shown to be real. In the city of Chicago, which is overwhelmingly liberal, there were thousands more votes than voters in the 2016 election.
Chicago City Wire reports:
Election board lists more general election votes than voters in Chicago
More than 14,000 votes were cast in Chicago during the 2016 general election than there were voters to cast them, based on separate figures released by the Chicago Board of Elections, the chairman of the Chicago Republican Party has reported.
Chris Cleveland told the Chicago Wire that “on a whim,” he filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the board, which provided him with a list of 1,101,178 people who voted in the general election. An earlier post on the board’s website said that 1,115,664 votes had been cast.
“There should be never be more votes than voters,” Cleveland said. “Every ballot cast should be recorded against a registered voter.”
The party did a breakdown of voting by precinct, and Cleveland said it found an uneven distribution of discrepancies. Fifteen precincts had 100 more ballots cast than voters, while others had fewer votes than voters.
In fact, based on the party’s calculations, the combined total of votes in precincts showing more votes cast than voters was approximately 16,000, Cleveland said.
This problem could be solved with voter IDs and that’s precisely why Democrats oppose them. If we had voter IDs, where would Democrats find all their extra votes?
