— A voter fraud activist stormed out of a Wake County Board of Elections meeting Tuesday after the board denied his challenges to names on local voter rolls.

Jay DeLancy with the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina had filed challenges against more than 500 Wake County voters, claiming they reported on jury forms they were not citizens. The elections board staff said most of the challenges were mismatched or out of date.

The final 18 challenges were dismissed Tuesday, and DeLancy kicked the door on his way out of the board meeting.

He called it a sad day for voters, but elections officials said they followed state and federal law in every case.

    Time to call in the Fed's, this group is corrupt and it is pandering to illegals, and others.

    "So, the guy walked into an elections board hearing with 500 fake jury forms. Ok..."

    I don't know about 'fake', but the article did say that, "The elections board staff said most of the challenges were mismatched or out of date." Do you have anything to refute that? I'm not claiming to know, I'm just asking to see what the evidence was that was apparently found to be inaccurate, but that was claimed by another poster to be 'actual proof'.

    It does seem more than a coincidence that the Obama Justice Department is suing States over their Voter ID laws. Not trying to help bolster these laws to make sure elections results are credible and therefore maintain some level of trust with the voter base. Democrats are so radically opposed to Voter ID laws--isn't this teling in its own way. Of course these same Democrats, nationwide, push for Dogs and Cats to have licenses to walk in a public park (not vote, mind you...just to be in public) yet literally shriek at the mere sight of an ID card while voting. (I speak from personal experience this past election--if it wasn't ridiculous, it would be sad really). Democrats know they gain a certain percentage of illegal votes and in close elections, count on the 'dead' to vote. Wonder how that works....Chicago politics has a way of spreading throughout the country with this community organizer Obama running the show--also his Justice Dept. investigating voter fraud--good luck to us

    Does anyone actually think the election board is going to own up to not doing their job? It would mean they would actually have to do some work for their money.

    Democratic Motto: Vote early, vote often. Don't let being dead or illegal stop you!

    "What are you 12 yrs old. Grown up. Your data was incorrect and wasting the boards time" Legitimate frustrations at elected officials paid by our taxes involved in voter fraud. You grow up

    "Nope, he had actual proof. You can pretend he didn't, but he has actual paperwork detailing the facts. "

    Have you seen the "actual proof"? Is the paperwork online somewhere?
