Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.
Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. -Jesse Richman and David Earnest
We find that some non-citizens participate in U.S. elections, and that this participation has been large enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes, and Congressional elections.
Non-citizen votes likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. -Jesse T. Richman, Guishan A. Chaitta and David C. Earnest
Democrat, Crime, Election, Convict
Former Democratic Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon pleaded guilty to a felony corruption charge back in June, but that didn’t stop him from trying to vote in this year’s election. In North Carolina, it is against the law for convicted felons to vote until after serving the full length of their incarceration. Cannon is currently out on bond after being sentenced in October to 44 months in prison for accepting bribes from undercover federal agents.

Campaign materials aimed at getting out the black vote are featuring references to lynchings, Jim Crow-era signs, racial unrest — and, as of last weekend, the Ku Klux Klan. In Alabama, fliers distributed in largely black communities warn voters to cast ballots or else “land may be given to extremist groups to honor klansmen.” A copy of the flier was obtained by The Washington Times.

Crime, Election, Fraud
“We did have a rocky start in a number of polling places where we had insufficient judges and/or equipment issues,” said Jim Allen, Chicago’s boards of elections spokesman... Allen continued to explain that at least 2,000 election judges did not show up as planned. The judges’ absence could be tied to robocalls from this past weekend that instructed some judges to go to training sessions and told them how to vote.
“You’re telling people how to vote in a federal election and implying that it has to do with their employment,” Allen said. “I covered politics for a long time in Chicago and around the state, all of you have, this one is a new dirty trick.”
One of these frauds involved sending out absentee ballots to people who had never asked for them. Then a political operator would show up -- uninvited -- the day the ballots arrived and "help" the voter to fill them out. Sometimes the intruders simply took the ballots, filled them out and forged the signatures of the voters. -Thomas Sowell

The husband of a Democratic incumbent lawmaker now up for re-election in Delaware stole Republican campaign signs under the cover of darkness, according to police... Middletown, Delaware, police issued an arrest warrant Wednesday for Dana Long following the thefts at Middletown Odessa and Silver Lake roads. "My husband is the man depicted in the video," said state Sen. Bethany Hall-Long (D-Middletown) in a prepared statement.
The Colorado Secretary of State's Office is investigating the makeup of Boulder County's election judge teams after allegations that county officials stacked the ranks of mail-in ballot watchers with Democrats, including some posing as Republicans... Hilliard also said she witnessed some election judges approving signatures on mail-in ballots that did not match those of the voters.
Middletown Police say Sen. Bethany Hall-Long’s (D-Middletown) husband is behind a rash of about 56 stolen Republican Party campaign signs across the city... A warrant has been issued for Dana Long charging him with theft under $1,500. That’s a Class A Misdemeanor and he could face up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $2,000.
No Real Concrete Evidence of Voter Fraud
There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud. It's a big ass lie. #Whopper You can't prove it. It's not happening and that is the lie.— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) October 18, 2014

2014 Midterm Elections
Yes, Republicans resoundingly trounced Democrats, taking control of the Senate, expanding their majority in the House and even picking up key gubernatorial posts. But the GOP also made much history, electing younger, more diverse candidates to a legislative body that has historically been dominated by older, white men. -Igor Bobic
