14 Vote Frauds: Austrian Election Rerun

The Austrian Constitutional Court has annulled the federal presidential election because of 14 proven cases of voter fraud and ordered a rerun of the election.

The announcement, made on Friday morning, means that the entire election will have to take place again, most likely within the next two months. The president was supposed to have been sworn in on July 8.


“Elections are the foundation of our democracy,” Constitutional Court President Gerhart Holzinger said during the court’s decision. The preservation of that foundation is the “primary duty” of his court, he said.

“The decision that I will now announce makes no loser and no winner,” Holzinger said. “It serves only one goal: Confidence in our rule of law and the strengthening of our democracy.”

In 14 of 20 surveyed districts, the principle of the secret ballot was violated, the court ruled, noting that the ballot papers were opened in the absence of legal representatives.

Some 77,926 votes were affected by this illegality, which makes manipulation possible, the court ruled.

The communist-Green Alexander Van der Bellen defeated the Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer by only 30,863 votes—after winning an abnormally high number of postal votes.

The number of affected votes could therefore have affected the outcome, and the court ruled that because of this, the election will have to be rerun.

  2. Greatest news ever !!!! Austrian people, You must stand up and show what Your real choice is !! Tell Your friends, Your family to go out there and vote !!! All best to Austrian Nation !!

    1. Yep, it happens here in America and all Western nations. They don’t want our own people having control of our own nations and our own destiny.

  3. The BREXIT vote will surely make beleaguered Austrians more confident and self assertive- that their opinions count and disconnected governments can be removed in favour of others more tuned in. If Hofer wins this would be a further kick in the guts of the Brussels elite. Further spurring the breakup of the EU before retaliatory draconian measures can be introduced from Brussels.

    1. Dementia? Isn’t being a member of the green party, sufficient evidence, of being mentally imparied, in itself.

  4. I just knew this was going to come to light. The Left cannot resist the urge to steal elections any way they can. For them the end justifies the means and there are no rules.
