While charges of voter fraud have always been tossed about during election time — and given the sheer number of illegals in this country it’s a totally legitimate concern — this cycle has really seen the allegations flying around.
It seems there’s good reason to be concerned, particularly if you’re in Indiana, as the Democratic Party has admitted to “mistakenly” sending 2,000 voters to the wrong polling locations.
Either this is a sign of corruption or complete and utter incompetence.
According to The Washington Free Beacon, The Indiana Democratic Party acknowledged Monday that it referred approximately 2,000 voters to the wrong polling locations via text messages.
The text messages prompted officials in Marion County to begin investigating the matter.
The Indiana Democratic Party says that it sent more than 400,000 text messages to likely Democratic voters, but at least one Republican city-county councilman received one with the incorrect polling information, the Indy Star reported.
The party said the mistake was due to a software error. The communications director for the Indiana Democratic Party, Drew Anderson, emailed a statement to the Indy Star.
“The Indiana Democratic Party experienced a data-match error in our get-out-the-vote text message program to Democratic voters,” Anderson said. “We are correcting the error now with a new message directing the voters impacted to www.indianavoters.com so that they are able to confirm their polling location.”
Conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe released a video this past summer that pretty much proves voter fraud really does exist and is a legitimate concern for those who want to make sure their voices are heard at the polls.

Guerilla filmmaker James O’Keefe is famous for having busted institutions ranging from the fraudulent voter-registration group ACORN to NPR. His Project Veritas team has also piled up an impressive array of videos documenting that the Pew survey numbers on voter registration could easily be translated into fraudulent votes with very little chance of detection. In New Hampshire, he found it was easy to vote using the name of a dead person. In North Carolina, political operatives encouraged his undercover associates to vote even if they were non-citizens.
Last week in Michigan, O’Keefe struck again, testing the state’s voter-ID law, which allows non-ID holders to vote if they merely fill out an affidavit claiming they are who they say they are. Such affidavits are almost never checked. Using this ruse, O’Keefe told different poll workers he was Detroit mayor Mike Duggan, Wayne State University Law School dean Jocelyn Benson, and columnist Nancy Kaffer of the Detroit Free Press — all whom strongly oppose voter-ID laws. In each case, poll workers offered him primary ballots for the person he was claiming to be. He was also offered the ballot of legendary Michigan rapper Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III.
In all but one sting, the poll workers offered him a ballot, though he never actually accepted a ballot or cast an illegal vote.
Voters in Indiana have every right to be concerned about this little “mistake” made by the Democratic Party, as there’s a lot at stake in this election and as we’ve seen clearly from WikiLeaks, the left will stoop to just about any low to win.
One thing’s for sure. Tomorrow is going to be a wild, wild day across America.
