FEATURED SPEAKER: Jay DeLancy
Thursday evening we are pleased to have Jay DeLancy of Voter Integrity Project NC as our featured speaker. Jay DeLancy is Executive Director of VIP-NC , a trans-partisan, volunteer organization that works for open and honest elections by bringing more transparency to the process in order to ensure that no voters are disenfranchised. The group uses database analysis to detect irregularities in the voting records that could suggest patterns of fraud.
Their research has included identifying three NC counties with more than 100% of its voting-age population registered to vote (the national average is 67%), discovering almost 30,000 deceased persons still on the voter rolls; finding more than a hundred people who voted in the 2008 election and then later proved to the Wake County Clerk of Courts that they were not US citizens; and by gathering enough evidence to compel the State Board of Elections to make criminal referrals for (so far) five persons who voted twice in the Nov 2012 election.
Jay has led the way in North Carolina pushing for reforms to it's voting laws to protect all voters against fraud. He has appeared on national media including Fox and Friends, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and others. He will catch us up on legislation, legal actions, and what they're doing next.
