Things are getting worse in NC.

This person picked up the ballots from people's homes.

US HOUSE DISTRICT 9 RACE: Channel 9 uncovers similarities between absentee ballots in U.S. House District 9 race

What Channel 9 found appears to be a targeted effort to illegally pick up ballots, in which even the person picking them up had no idea whether those ballots were even delivered to the elections board.

Consistently, Channel 9 found the same people signing as witnesses for the people voting, which is very rare.

Of the 159 submitted and accepted absentee ballot envelopes, below is the breakdown of those who signed as witnesses:

  • Woody Hester witnessed 44
  • James Singletary witnessed 42
  • Lisa Britt witnessed 42
  • Ginger Eason witnessed 28
  • Jessica Dowless witnessed 15
  • Cheryl Kinlaw witnessed 13
  • Deborah Edwards witnessed 11
  • Sandra Dowless witnessed 10
Many times, people on that list witnessed ballots together.

Channel 9’s political reporter Joe Bruno went door-to-door in Bladen County trying to find out who these people are.

No one answered at Woody Hester’s home. James Singletary wasn’t home either and Lisa Britt doesn’t live at the address she said she did on the ballots.

Bruno then visited Ginger Eason. She told him why her name appeared so many times as a witness.

“I was helping McCrae pick up ballots,” Eason said.

Eason said Leslie McCrae Dowless, Jr. paid her $75 to $100 a week to go around and pick up finished absentee ballots.

Dowless is the Bladen County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor who appears to be at the center of the state investigation. He was named twice in sworn affidavits as a worker for the Mark Harris campaign.

Eason said she never discarded ballots or saw who people were voting for, but after picking them up, she didn’t mail them. She said she gave them to Dowless.

More on this Dowless character...

At center of voter fraud scandal, a convicted felon and ‘grassroots’ campaigner

A man who worked as an “independent contractor” for Republican Mark Harris’ campaign in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District is a convicted felon who faced jail time for fraud and perjury, according to court records.


Over the last two decades, he has been paid by at least nine candidates, all for get-out-the-vote work, according to state records.

Leslie McCrae Dowless was convicted of felony fraud in 1992 in Iredell County, according to court records. Dowless and his wife were accused of taking out an insurance policy on a dead man and collecting nearly $165,000 from his death, according to a 1991 Fayetteville Observer article. He served more than six months of a two-year prison sentence, according to court records.

The incoming House majority leader said Democrats might refuse to seat a North Carolina Republican next year unless and until “substantial” questions about the integrity of his election are resolved.

Rep. Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.), the current minority whip, made the comments to reporters Tuesday as North Carolina election officials investigate whether an operative hired by Republican candidate Mark Harris illegally collected incomplete ballots from voters.

The probe has delayed the certification of Harris’s narrow victory in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, and state officials could decide to call for a new election. Harris and Democrat Dan McCready are separated by 905 votes, according to unofficial returns.

Yet five counties in Mexifornia sent absentee ballots to every registered voter as pointed out above.


Traditionally, only voters who request mail ballots get them. But this year, five counties — Sacramento, Nevada, San Mateo, Madera and Napa — are experimenting by sending mail ballots to all registered voters.


More California Voters, Counties Opting For Mail-In Ballots


So you think that they removed them all from the rolls of their precincts? :rolleyes:

And who checks that no double voting occurred? Hmmm?

Vote early, vote often.
No, in those counties there WERE no places to vote in person. The only thing they had were places to drop off the ballots people had received by mail, and provisional ballots. It's hard to vote more than once when only one ballot is provided to each voter.

Mr. Rasselas,

Just like the instructions to absentee voters are clearly printed on the return envelopes in NC.
Not sure that's true. I only know about CA because I live here.
All those things apply in NC, so if it happen in one small area in NC, why wouldn't you believe it happens in a one party state like California where voter mining is legal?
The only change was that a voter could designate any person they liked to return the ballot, and that person's name still has to appear on the envelope. It's pretty easy to catch someone doing something like this because their name will appear on lots of envelopes. That would be a cause for investigation.

Mr. Rasselas,

Perhaps you should do your research then before posting then.

As for your second point, it's not illegal for paid democrat operatives names to be on a lot of envelopes, and in fact, large teams of vote collectors were sent out.

So if you see small scale fraud in NC, why do you not suspect large scale fraud in California like the democratic organization intended with this law?
