Governor Palin: Help Stop Voter Fraud! #WatchTheVote; Updated: GOP poll watchers being forcibly replaced by Democrats in Philly

Governor Palin posted the following to her Facebook page:

If you see something at the polls today that doesn’t seem right, record and report it: Share this video to help stop voter fraud!

Update by Doug: Here are a few examples of what I’d call something "that doesn’t seem right".

Paul Bedard:

Court-appointed Republican poll inspectors are being forcibly removed from voting stations in some Philadelphia wards and replaced in some cases by Democratic inspectors and even members of the Black Panthers, according to GOP officials.

Secrets just received this memo from GOP officials:

The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards.

These Inspectors are election officials – again, court appointed — and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats) and being replaced by Democrats.

Kerry Picket:

Tensions are high all over the country at the polls today. The Michigan  Republican Party is alleging that a poll watcher in Detroit on Tuesday morning  was threatened with a gun. According to the Michigan GOP the poll watcher’s 911 call was rejected. Below  is a press release from Michigan Republican Party spokesman Matt Frendeway:

This morning, a legally credentialed poll watcher was threatened and  intimidated while attempting to perform his legally allowed duties of observing  the election process at precinct polling location 289 in Detroit. The poll  watcher, a lawyer, was confronted by a voter in line, who demanded the poll  watcher produce his credentials, which he did.

However, the voter said that wasn’t good enough and that he had “a badge and  a gun” and told the poll watcher get out of the precinct. Rather than allow the  situation to escalate, the poll watcher left before the voter produced a badge  or brandished a gun. Fearing for his safety, the poll watcher exited and called  911, however the Detroit Police refused to respond to the call – neglecting the  fact that a voter alleged to have a ‘badge’ and a ‘gun’ in a precinct, putting  other voters at risk.

Daniel Halper:

Here’s a photo of an election judge checking in voters in Barack Obama’s Chicago ward–wearing an Obama baseball cap:

"This photo, taken by a voter this morning at the Ward 4, Precinct 37 polling place (1212  South Plymouth Court, Chicago), shows an election judge checking in  voters while wearing an Obama hat," a source writes. "Chicago’s 4th ward is home to  President Barack Obama."

The voter who took the photo says: "Woman in front of me also given an extra ballot."

And the voter adds that she has in the past been an election observer abroad. "I had greater confidence votes mattered [in a foreign election in a transitioning country] than I did about my own vote today," says the voter.

    "If you see something at the polls today that doesn’t seem right, record and report it."

    This has already been reported, but everyone should be aware of what the Dems and their thugs are willing to do:

    Obama always blames others for things he is doing himself.

    Same can be applied to the voter suppression the left is accusing the Reps of.

    Fact is, it is Obama who has been doing  a great job the last 4 years suppressing the enthusiasm for him and now the voter turnout

    I love you, Stacey. I love you Rebecca. I love you Sarah.

    Lead, babies, lead.

    While folks are at the polls, they need to pay close attention to those intake-registration tables and to the people with the intake and posting
    rotation duties. Look at the logs posted. Test the information.

    There should be a posted log of registered voters being crossed off as folks come through to vote. This is kept updated and rotated throughout the day, and shows not just who voted in person, but also who received absentee or provisional ballots. 

    And did you know anyone can register to vote using your address? Do you know how to find out if any are or have been? Do you know how to access the current voter registrations rolls in your county or state? These are key questions in empowering you to claim the authenticity of your vote. In the doing of it you’re also making your neighbors’ votes safer, as well.

    The best way to understand the rules and see how they (should) apply, is to go through your county elections office’s volunteer training and become an elections volunteer. It’s perhaps the most powerful opportunity any citizen and patriot can have to take part as a meaningful presence for good at the grassroots level of this precious process.

    Of course it’s not possible for everyone, but you’d be surprised how easy it can be. And someone at your elections office will be happy to provide you with materials for a good understanding of the process, and likely thank you for asking. **Edit:** If it’s a well run elections office, this will be the case. If you’re met with something other than a welcome, then you know where to begin your investigations and remedies of law. It’s a big country. Voter fraud comes from many directions and wears many faces.

    The only true solution to voter fraud is name by name and precinct by precinct. Information is power.
