Someone should check to see if those Democrat write in votes are still alive and citizens!

 

MARQUETTE, Michigan. (WLUC) - Ballots are still being reviewed to officially declare Matt Morgan as the democratic nominee on the November ballot.


On Wednesday, the Marquette County Board of Canvassers met to review ballots. Together they had to go over the 4,643 unresolved votes under the First District Congressional Democrat nominee, breaking down the write-in votes in the townships and precincts.


After the ballots are reviewed in Marquette County, they will be sent to the Michigan Board of Canvassers.


Once certified Morgan said, he will officially be the democratic nominee.

   Apparently the ignoblers here seem to not know about how to write in a name on a ballot?   Wowzer.    Instead they go to voter fraud.....deep delusion.      Seeing as how I have the bogus  report by G_A_I on voter problems...I can see how these ignoblers perhaps just don't have the thinking skills to understand / comprehend a bogus study.      Very pathetic to see the decline in comprehension among ignoble "seniors" here.

Democrat Receives 30,000 Write-In Votes

How Bad Are Things For the GOP? A Democratic House Candidate Got 30,000 Write-In Votes In Michigan


IN APRIL, MICHIGAN officials who oversee elections kicked Democrat Matt Morgan off the congressional ballot, leaving the Republican incumbent, Rep. Jack Bergman, to run unopposed in the general election.
That was the plan, at least, until primary day on Tuesday, when more than 30,000 Democratic voters cast write-in ballots in Michigan’s 1st Congressional District. That’s nearly eight times as many votes as Morgan needed to be resurrected and placed on the November ballot.


In Marquette County, in fact, Morgan got nearly as many votes as Bergman did.


The candidate was booted from the ballot based on a technicality:


His petitions listed a Post Office box rather than a physical address. His campaign turned the petitions in on March 6. An official got back to the campaign on April 29, explaining the address snafu, and saying that they had until the end of the day to withdraw or they were likely to be disqualified, said Joe Vanderbosch, Morgan’s spokesperson.
They refused to withdraw, so the Michigan Board of State Canvassers booted Morgan.
“It appears that Republican voter suppression in Michigan’s 1st Congressional District has failed in an historic way!” Moore wrote on Twitter. “Republicans on the election commission kicked the lone Democratic candidate off the ballot, so thousands of us mobilized.”

 

  • Morgan said the number one issue he hears about on the campaign trail is health care. He argues that Medicare should be expanded to cover everyone, he said, he rarely finds any objections from voters.
  • He has also been asked about about whether he would support California Rep. Nancy Pelosi to be Democratic leader in the next Congress. His response is that it is time for new leadership. “It’s time for a new generation of leadership in the Democratic Party" he said.
  • Morgan, an Iraq War Veteran said that one of his top concerns is repealing the post-9/11 authorization of the use of military force. Presidents have been using the AUMF, as it is known, for a decade and a half to justify new military commitments around the globe.
