New BBC Study on Elections Shows How To Spot The Tell-Tale Signs Of Vote Rigging

 The process of vote-rigging in Africa was studied and reported by the BBC in 2016 after “Gabon’s opposition says it was cheated of victory, after official results showed a turnout of 99.3%.”

The author says, “watch the turnout figures- they can be a big giveaway.” When determining a fair and free election in any country, look at regions or COUNTIES where the voter turnout is unusually high.

“You never get a 98% or 99% turnout in an honest election,” the report states. In Gabon, voting is required by its citizens but not enforced. In other countries that require its citizens to vote, like “Australia where it is enforced, where you can vote by post or online and can be fined for not voting, turnout only reaches 90-95%.”

Think about that, in a country where you can be fined for not voting, the voter turnout only reaches 90-95%. What does that say when a country who doesn’t enforce or have any laws forcing its citizens to vote has counties reporting over 95% voter turnout?

It is called fraud.

The report states that “the main reason that a full turnout is practically impossible is that electoral register, even if they are recently compiled, can rarely be 100% up-to-date.”

Africa is VERY SIMILAR to other countries in the respect that no one in the country “has any great enthusiasm for removing the names of those who have died, and over time the number of these non-existent voters increases.”

The reporter says that “an election in the Niger Delta had a [voter] turnout of more than 120%.” And that “a turnout of more than 100%, in an area or an individual polling station, IS A MAJOR RED FLAG AND A REASON TO CANCEL THE RESULT AND RE-RUN THE ELECTION.

Another way to prove voter fraud in these African elections is by a high turnout in specific areas that are important for both candidates’ victory. “Even where the turnout is within the bounds of possibility (under 100%) if the figure is wildly different from the turnout elsewhere, it serves as a warning,” the reporter says.

“Why would one particular area, or one individual polling station, have a 90% turnout, while most other areas register less than 70%?” In instances such as this, it’s important to understand that gaining political power in a country is almost always more important than just about anything else and is the main reason people commit voter fraud.

The report says that there are other ways countries that hold national elections, like Africa, can “increase votes or reduce them.” The author says to look at the rate at which votes are accepted or rejected to determine if the election has been rigged.

A COUNTY or region where people’s votes are being accepted at a higher rate than normal could indicate massive fraud. For example, if there was a COUNTY or region in a country – that voted in national elections like Africa does – that is showing a rejection rate 30 times lower this year than years past, it would be cause for concern.

Especially if, for example, that county or region was critical in determining that nation’s election results and they only rejected 951 of 2,614,011 votes.

The author says, “when the polls close, and before they open the boxes, election officials normally have to go through a complicated and rather tedious process known as the reconciliation of ballots.” Countries experiencing voter fraud by “stuffing ballot boxes” normally show a “discrepancy” with the number of ballots received versus the number of registered voters asked.

“If there is a discrepancy, something is wrong. And if there are more papers in the [ballot] boxes than were issued by the polling staff, it is highly likely that someone has been doing some ‘stuffing.’ And that the author says, is “a good enough reason to cancel the result and arrange a re-run.”

Another way to see if an election has been fraudulent is if there is all the sudden a “delay in announcing results” or a delaying in counting the ballots. “Elections commissions, particularly in Africa, can appear to take an inordinately long time to publish official results,” says the author.

For example, if the counting of votes is normally completed in one day but takes longer, it will cause “fueling rumors of results being ‘massaged’ before release and increasing tensions.” These tensions would only make it worse if an unprecedented new voting system were put into place for the first time. And, the voting system saw major irregularities such as switching thousands of votes from one candidate to another.

Luckily for us, Americans are told by mainstream media that voting fraud – like, delayed results, high voter turnout (more than previously ever recorded), a large number of votes that would normally be invalid are now accepted, or results that don’t match what was previously recorded – doesn’t happen in America.

Hold. The. Line.

  1. My gawd! An almost honest piece of work from the BBC - the people that reported Building 7 collapsing half an hour in advance.
