In 2013, the New York City Department of Investigation tested the city’s voting system to see how susceptible it is to voter fraud. The results weren’t encouraging:
Ninety-seven percent of the barely disguised phony voters were allowed to vote unimpeded, and none was referred for criminal charges or officially reported to the Board of Elections. One can only imagine what a sharp operator trying to fix an election could do by flooding polling places with ineligible voters.
Dimino’s father, Anthony Baldomir, died on Oct. 4, 2012. But according to the board’s records, he could vote in the Nov. 8 presidential election…
“In 2013, 2014, 2015 and again this year, I received absentee ballots for my father. I could have fraudulently voted with those ballots, but I shredded them instead,” an exasperated Dimino told The Post.
Dimino says she called the Board of Elections after her father’s death to ask that he be purged from the rolls, but was told that would require her to present a death certificate in person, not by mail.
A mailed death certificate should be sufficient to remove a voter from the rolls, and the BOE now says it is, but there are easier methods to ensure dead people don’t remain on voter rolls and receive mail ballots year after year. Comparing death records to voter lists is a simple list maintenance tool that all registrars can and should be using. But apparently Queens isn’t.
BOE spokeswoman Valerie Vazquez confirmed that Baldomir, who hadn’t voted since 2011, was still on its “permanent absentee-ballot list.” She said the agency never received notification of his passing.
”Yeah, they should ask for your ID. I think there is a lot of voter fraud…
People think that it’s a liberal thing to do, but I take my vote seriously and I don’t want ten other people coming in negating my vote by voting for the other candidate when they’re not even registered voters.”
The majority of voters – Republican, Democrat, and Independent – who support voter ID laws don’t want their votes negated by voter fraud either, Alan.
This time it’s not just any Democrat, but the Democratic Commissioner of New York City’s Board of Elections, Alan Schulkin, who ought to know better than anyone about voter fraud taking place in his city.
Schulkin also goes against the party line by supporting a voter ID requirement, and says people are bussed around to vote at multiple polling places – “they put them in a bus and go poll site to poll site” – an idea regularly ridiculed by the Left-media as a right-wing fever dream.
“Yeah, they should ask for your ID. I think there is a lot of voter fraud,” said Schulkin, who elaborated on the types of voter fraud that are taking place in New York…
“You know, I don’t think it’s too much to ask somebody to show some kind of an ID…Like I say, people don’t realize, certain neighborhoods in particular they bus people around to vote,” said Schulkin.

Just three more fraudulent votes would have flipped the outcome of this Democrat primary:
Hector Ramirez, who ran for State Assembly in 2014, was in Bronx Supreme Court on Tuesday, having been busted on voting fraud charges. Despite allegedly using fraudulent absentee ballots, he still lost the election by 2 votes.
Hector Ramirez was arrested Tuesday on massive voter fraud charges in his failed 2014 Assembly bid. Ramirez and his allies went door-to-door in his west Bronx district duping voters into letting the veteran pol’s campaign staff vote on their behalf, a prosecutor charged as the 242-count indictment was unsealed.
The FBI is investigating voter fraud and financial mismanagement of politicians in The Bronx… “I’m hearing that one document turned over to Bharara shows that some candidates in certain Bronx districts got more votes than the number of voters who went into the booths,” the Post’s John Crudele wrote.
Longtime Hempstead school board member Betty Cross must immediately step down from her post while Education Commissioner John B. King Jr. considers allegations of voter fraud and misuse of absentee ballots in her May re-election, the state agency chief ruled Friday… The election is being investigated by the Nassau County district attorney’s office…
Cross, who has “served seven terms since 1978,” lost on election night, but a count of contested absentee ballots put her ahead by six votes.
The petition said some voters who did not ask for and were not qualified to receive absentee ballots were surprised when Cross’ supporters arrived on their doorsteps in the days before the election with those ballots in hand. Many of the absentee ballots were walked to the polling site, in violation of election law, the petition charges.
