Have you ever wondered what happened in Alaska during the 2022 midterm election? How is it that a congressional district that had long been held by Republicans since 1971 was suddenly and inexplicably won by a Democrat? How is it that of the last three candidates standing — showcasing two Republican candidates and only one Democrat candidate — neither Republican candidate won that race?This phenomenon in Alaska can be explained by ranked-choice voting.
An important message from Dr. Alveda King. Together we fought to ensure every American had the right to vote freely. Nursing home residents and other vulnerable vote fraud groups have been targeted for vote fraud, with their votes suppressed and even stolen. Together we can curb this despicable form of vote fraud by reporting abuse to the Vote Fraud Hotline at 888-820-VOTE.
The critical election cycle is just around the corner, and we must not allow what happened in 2020 to happen again. ACRU is focused on protecting the votes of our most vulnerable voters — senior citizens, group home residents, citizens abroad, the disabled, and our military.
In a new OPED for American Constitutional Rights Union, Policy Board Member Ken Blackwell notes that unfounded claims of election fraud are, in fact, unfounded. “The danger is real.

Forged signatures on absentee ballot applications that led to criminal charges against a Centerline nursing home employee has resulted in a guilty plea and jail time, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced today. Last year, Trenae Myesha Rainey, 28, was charged with the following in Macomb County’s 37th District Court:
Sometimes vote fraud happens from a distance (absentee or mailed ballots) and sometimes it’s up-close and personal. In Florida’s Miami-Dade County, the State Attorney is looking into reports of a large up-tick in volunteers from campaigns and city government “helping” the elderly or disabled to vote. In other parts of Florida, only 1 percent of voters need assistance, but in Miami-Dade that number is above 10 percent. Two-thirds of the helpers were city or campaign workers – were they assisting with votes or manipulating them?
ACRU’s Roman Discusses Efforts to Protect Vulnerable Voters with Cleta Mitchell on Who’s Counting Podcast
In the run-up to the 2020 elections, American Constitutional Rights Union created an important outreach program to senior citizens and senior residential facilities that brought attention to fraud, voter manipulation, and undue influence in voting by political operatives and facilities staff. Truly a form of elderly abuse, many cases of stolen and manipulated senior ballots have been reported to ACRU as it continues its important project and expands to other groups of vulnerable voters. Cleta and Lori discuss what actions seniors themselves, their families, facility directors, election officials, state legislators, and most importantly — concerned citizens — can take to ensure the authenticity and integrity of every senior vote.
