Voter fraud is real, has been in place for some time, and is especially dangerous this election – although every election should be safeguarded to ensure that the People votes are safe.
One of the issues with voting fraud is that those who are illegal immigrants and non-citizens, who have obtained documentation illegally are voting. The other is the same old issue of “dead people” voting.
Voter ID was established to produce stronger measures against voting fraud in order to reduce or eliminate the possibility of voter fraud. Those against this measure are primarily of the political left, which also makes one wonder their true reasoning behind their negativity towards establishing Voter ID.
Confidence in the integrity of our electoral processes is essential to the functioning of our participatory democracy. Voter fraud drives honest citizens out of the democratic process and breeds distrust of our government. Voters who fear their legitimate votes will be outweighed by fraudulent ones will feel disenfranchised.
Those opposing Voter ID state that it discriminates against subgroups and its function is like poll taxes
, disenfranchising certain individuals and groups.
Once again, the question of the real purpose here is evident.
Presently twenty states have no laws requiring Voter ID. However, 17 states require an ID bearing a photograph of the voter. In some of the 30 states with such laws, voters without ID may cast their ballots if they sign an affidavit of identity, or if poll workers can personally vouch for their identity. The latter is useful because local folks volunteer to work at voting polls.
Another argument is that voting fraud is extremely rare and requiring Voter ID is not necessary.
Again, this assumption or view is under suspect.
In 2008, voter fraud influenced a US Senate election in Minnesota. Community organizer Mark Ritchie
belonging to or affiliated with pro-Obama organizations like the New Party
, Campaign for America’s Future
, and Apollo Alliance
, was elected as Minnesota’s secretary of state. After taking office, he dismantled the ballot reconciliation program that checked for vote count accuracy. In the same year, Al Franken
contested the US Senate election and Mr. Ritchie presided over the recount. Newly discovered
, mysterious votes were found and Franken won. Ritchie’s elimination of voting regulations
were responsible for Franken’s win. Because of the lax in ballot review, 1,400 convicted felons illegally voted for Al Franken
Voter fraud is committed in several ways: falsified registration forms that allow convicted felons to vote, fake Social Security numbers, allowing illegal aliens to vote (and felons, as well as dead people, and incorrect birth dates and non-existent addresses. The Democrat Party) has enacted all of this since the American Civil War and the main political organization who commits these voting crimes throughout political history has always been the Democrat Party.
If you think of re-electing BH Obama, remember the ACORN scandal
– a real event and proven. Too many American voters forget these details when deciding who they should vote for.
In every case of establishing a system to prevent voter fraud, the Democrat Party and its subsidiary organizations have been behind it. They claim they are looking out for the American voter.
In July of 2010, PJ Media
exposed the Obama-Holder Justice Department
for turning a blind eye
to problems of corruption concerning voter rolls. Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes
told Voting Section employees:
We have no interest in enforcing this provision [voter list integrity] law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.
In 2012, a problem occurred in Florida
concerning voter identification and registration.
Not having a drivers’ license is no excuse for fighting against Voter Fraud. There are other ways to obtain an ID with your legitimate address and photograph – our state provides opportunity to have an ID without having a drivers’ license, and I am sure other states do also.
We need to protect our voting rights – plainly, our votes. Those that oppose should be regarded with suspicion.
If an election … can be procured by a party through artifice or corruption, the Government may be the choice of a party for its own ends, not of the nation for the national good.John Adams
