JOSH HARDER ABANDONED THE VALLEY TO VOTE IN SAN FRANCISCO

Only came forward with a document after questions were raised yesterday that he may have voted twice in the 2016 General Election.

MODESTO, CA – Yesterday documentation surfaced that indicated Democrat candidate for the 10th Congressional District, Josh Keck Harder, committed a felony by voting in both San Francisco and Stanislaus County during the 2016 General Election.

According to documentation, the San Francisco County Public Records shows Josh Harder was registered to vote in San Francisco from September 29, 2016 until April 17, 2017 and that he voted in San Francisco County in the November 8th, 2016 General Election.

According to documentation provided by the Stanislaus County Registrar of Voters, Josh Harder has been continuously registered to vote in Stanislaus County since 2005 and also voted “within” Stanislaus County for the General Election held on November 8, 2016. The Stanislaus County Registrar of Voters clarified today that Harder did not vote in Stanislaus County on November 8, 2016. However, it remains unclear exactly why he would remain on both counties’ voter registration rolls or why the paperwork listed Harder as voting “within” the county.

The documents provided from each Registrar of Voters can be found here.

When members of the media pressed the Harder Campaign for comment, they released a document indicating Josh Harder abandoned his voter registration in Stanislaus County in October of 2016.

The document provided to the media from the Harder Campaign can be found here.

“Instead of choosing to vote for local issues, Josh Harder chose to vote for Bay Area issues and Nancy Pelosi,” said Josh Whitfield – Denham’s Campaign Manager. “Harder abandoned the Valley and our district to go vote in San Francisco.”

The Denham Campaign asserts that this alongside his massive donations, endorsements, and support from the Bay Area, that this is proof positive of Josh Harder’s loyalties to the Bay Area over the Central Valley.  He volunteered to vote in San Francisco over the Valley.

“Why did Josh Harder choose to vote for Nancy Pelosi over local issues?” questioned Jeff Denham. “The fact remains he only moved back to our District to run for Congress, if he cared about the Valley he would have voted here.”

Harder’s voting history has been a significant issue in the campaign since he only voted in two elections before filing to run for Congress. This development means Harder never voted in the district before filing to run for Congress, except in the 2008 Presidential Primary.
