Election Fraud

Some people are concerned that there is going to be problems, both technical and ethical, with the upcoming election. I too am concerned but not for the same things.

I wonder

A.) How many dead people are going to vote?

B.) How many people are going to fill out an absentee ballot in one state and vote in person in another?

C.) How many times will Peter Pan and Mary Poppins vote in Cleveland?

D.) How many non-citizens will be allowed to vote?

These are at least as large of problems, possibly larger in some areas, than the questions that the Washington Post article asks. A lot of the technical problems and training problems should have been discovered during the primary votes and most of them should be corrected by the election.

Regardless of the fears of disenfranchising people, we need to require picture ID's of every voter, and if they need to be provided free of charge, so be it. However, we need to thoroughly check every application for a voter ID, and constantly compare voter rolls to other sources, including obituaries, address changes at the Post Office, etc in order to prevent fraudulent voting. I believe that fraudulent voting is the largest single problem in our elections. Everyone who can legally vote should to be allowed to vote --- ONCE. We must be vigilant against all forms of fraudulent voting and have zero tolerance for it.

I'm getting ready to post on something I'm steamed about. A liberal judge in Missouri just threw out our new law requiring photo ids to vote. I don't know if we have enough time before November to get it appealed or not.

We need photo ids in every state to be able to vote. You can't cash a check without one, why would we decide something as important as an election without them? Whiney Butts need to get over it and get this system going.

Well I have to ponder those same points. I know locally in Tulsa that a voter lived in an empty lot and voted every time for something like 17 years.
Yet when they began researching this they couldn't find anyone in the city or state with the name. So as far as anyone knows an vacant lot votes consistantly.

Yes, voter fraud is a huge problem. But I see no strong action against it until the Democrats stop hollering about voter ID measures.

All understandable concerns Shop. I kinda like lone pony's idea of an id. Any better ideas?

Picture ID's are a must, Shoprat.

You are very lucky the moonbats haven't hit you for such a dastardly suggestion as picture ID's. I just came over from Little Miss Chatterbox's blog where she posted about voter ID's and moonbats are quite upset! One of their arguments: "picture ID's are too expensive for poor people." Yeah, right!

the "poor people" already have photo Id's of some sort, you have to have them to get many things, its just a lame excuse to not fix an issue, right now I am kind of trying to decide if our vcotes count anyway or will the president be who the Supreme Court wants again??
