170 Voters Over 116 Years Old Voted in Ohio Elections
OHIO – August 10, 2018
Voters in Ohio’s 12th District are choosing a replacement for Representative Pat Tiberi, a Republican who resigned to work for a business group.
In Tuesday’s special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, Republican Troy Balderson won by a narrow margin by 0.8 percentage points, or 1,564.
Less than 1 percent of the total number of votes in the entire district are making the election too close to call at the moment and so a recount has been called. Ohio law calls for an automatic recount if the two candidates are ultimately separated by less than half a percentage point.
Additionally, more than 3,000 provisional ballots still have to be counted — nearly twice the number of votes in the winning margin, making Balderson’s victory is far from assured.
Such a slim margin in this special election has brought to light the dangerous consequences voter fraud can have for those who play fair.
According to the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), 170 registered voters in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District are listed as being “over 116 years old.”
So far the world’s oldest recorded living person is a 115-year-old resident of Japan.
“That’s 10 percent of Balderson’s current margin of victory, pending provisional ballots,” research director at the Government Accountability Institute Eric Eggers explained. “And 72 voters over the age of 116 who ‘live’ in Balderson’s district cast ballots in the 2016 election.”
In fact, some of the voters on Ohio’s rolls list their birthdays as Jan. 1, 1800, making them 218 years old. Clearly something is amiss.
For four years now, Democrats in Ohio have been fighting efforts to prevent voter fraud, and it is easy to see why.
In June, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of Ohio’s system for purging ineligible voters from the rolls, dealing a tough blow to Ohio Democrats.
If voter ID laws are passed and implemented as a result of that Supreme Court ruling, those 170 impossibly old voters would no longer be able to cast ballots — and that is something the fraudulent Democrats of the state desperately want to avoid, Sophia Clifton writes.
“A critical swing state, Ohio has voted for the winner in presidential races in twenty-eight out of the last thirty elections. As Ohio goes, so goes the nation,” former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell wrote for the American Thinker.
“While it may seem strange to witness millions of dollars pouring into a down ballot race in the heartland, there is a method to the Democrats’ madness,” Blackwell continued.
“Delve below the surface, and you will see that the Democrats have their sights set on 2020, defeating Donald Trump, taking back the presidency.”
