CRIT Voter Fraud
Posted in the Parker Forum
#1 Nov 26, 2008
This is from a tribal member’s e-mail:
"There’s a rumor circulating that a candidate and other tribal members are going around handing out absent ballots and telling tribal members that if they wanted absentee ballots, they can contact her." The e-mail went on to say; “This is currently ongoing, it apparently has been a mainstay of their votes in the past.”
In another e-mail, there was lengthly rebuttal to the above rumor.The rebuttal was mostly venting but I found it little troubling because of one statement. The statement is as follows: "Anyone can get or "give out" an application to request an absentee ballot."
In part: Government Code Chapter 4 ELIGIBILITY Section 2-401 Voters (d): "Tribal members who are residents off the Reservation and otherwise eligible may vote in any election by absentee ballot, provided they apply to the Election Board (through the Enrollment Department) at least three weeks before the election."
Emphasis on the above part: "provided they apply to the Election Board (through the Enrollment Department). This is explicit--there are no gray areas.
The above in also true in local, state and national elections. No one is allowed to go door to door or stand on a street corner handing out "applications for the request of absentee ballots." It just doesn't happen--except maybe on an Indian Reservation.
The Election Board and Enrollment Department should have a record of the number of Absentee Ballots that were requested and sent out. The ballots were sent by certified mail which is another way to trace the number of absentee ballots that were received and by whom. When counting the absentee ballots, if there are more ballots than were requested or signed for as registered mail, we will know there's something wrong.
In the envelope you receive containing the absentee ballot; there is a single sheet of paper that you sign and return with your absentee ballot. When the Election Board receives your absentee ballot, this is verification that your absentee ballot was received and that you will be registered as having voted by absentee ballot.
The signature on the single sheet of paper in the envelope containing the absentee ballot, should not appear on the register as having voted in person at the polling place. For a signature to appear with the absentee ballot and as having registered in person at the polling place, is evidence of voter fraud.
We must insure that there are Coalition observers at the polling places when absentee ballots are opened.
Some members must go to council meetings and let it be known and put the Enrollment Department and Election Board on notice that if there is an appearance of wrongdoing regarding absentee ballots, we will ask for and expect an investigation. Enough is enough!

It is one thing to be concerned about your tribe, it is another to not even vote. Wendell Goodman Jr. doesn't vote in tribal elections, what a waste of time.

To know if a person voted, you would have to be a member of the Election Board and making this information public would be illegal. But then with election fraud rampant, it's not a surprise. If you're privy to this crime, it's your civic duty to report it to the Tribal Council. To have this information leaked to you and not report the crime, makes you just as guilty. Mr. Goodman is not obsessed with tribal politics; if you talked to him. you'd find that he could tell you the results of tribal elections as far as who will win. Mr Goodman knows that in most elections, nepotism will win out over more worthy candidates. Now this is a concern both on the council and Department Heads hiring their relatives. Do you waste your vote by voting for your relatives or your drinking buddy that doesn't have a chance to win?
