A new report has surfaced that shows that 6,540 people using out-of-state driver’s licenses registered to vote on election day in New Hampshire, and barely any went on to acquire a state license or vehicle.
As of August 30th, 2017, only 1,104 of these voters had been issued driver’s licenses, and of the remaining 5,526, just 213 had registered a vehicle in the state.
That leaves 5,313 who didn’t obtain a state license or register a vehicle in the state within the 60 day window that New Hampshire law gives citizens. This was made possible by the state’s “same-day registration” law, which allows voters to both register to vote and cast their vote on the same day in the state.
In the general election, Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in New Hampshire by 2,736 votes. In the state’s Senate race, Democratic challenger Maggie Hassan defeated incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte by 1,017 votes. This means both of their victories could’ve easily been caused by this voter fraud.
White House policy adviser Stephen Miller asserts that this is to be expected. Speaking from experience, he said that “Having worked before on a campaign in New Hampshire, I can tell you that this issue of busing voters into New Hampshire is widely known by anyone who’s worked in New Hampshire politics. It’s very real. It’s very serious.”
