    Requiring a state-issued photo ID to vote is no more of a hinderance than requiring voters to get to the polling location. How you can survive without an ID in this day and age is beyond me, anyway.

    That is a partial solution but the real solution to a lot of voter fraud, will start when those that want to register to vote actually has to prove they are eligible to vote.

    In most if not all states today one can register by mailing in a 3 by 5 card. That's it. No proof that you are even a real person listed in the application. Just mail it in and you can vote.

    Of course that won't stop the Democrats from doing little things like making up vote counts out of thin air.....but it's a start.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    As I said, I only quoted their direct quotation of the applicable election law, and another paragraph describing the NH law on recorded conversations.

    I suggest you watch the video -- it was O'Keefe and his assistants that were "cheating and perpetrating voter fraud".

    Pretending to be somebody you aren't in order to case a vote is voter fraud. Yeah, the dude in the video committed a crime. But he didn't cast all 900 of those fake ballots, so who else was doing the same thing without trying to prove a point?
    You are confusing two different stories; perhaps the goal of the OP (by posting them together).

    The alleged 900 votes were not in NH, and may span more than one election (the link was vague).

    This horrific human being O'Keefe is a one trick pony. Let me explain something to you Vicchio that I think you have a hard time understanding.

    There's some kid on youtube who posts videos of himself making incredible trick basketball shots. He'll shoot from off of buildings and make it, he'll shoot over a house and make it, and he makes every half court shot he takes. He makes them all! He is clearly the greatest basketball player in the world, right? Now, obviously you understand that he's doing something anybody could do, he spends hours missing shot after shot before he finally makes one. The fact that there is a video of him making nearly impossible shots does not prove that he is a great basketball player.

    That's what these O'Keefe videos are. You could sit down and decide to do anything -- send a kid into a liquor store to buy whiskey, vote under a deceased person's name, find racist people at a tea party rally, find antisemitic people at an OWS rally, you could go to an NAACP meeting and make it appear that there are only white people there. So, Vicchio, unless you're going to argue that all liquor stores sell to children, the tea party is racist, OWS is antisemitic, and the NAACP is full of white people; you shouldn't make the absurd claim that voter fraud is rampant because O'Keefe wasted enough time to make it look like he's right.

    You can't possibly be unaware that the other ones were faked... You know the ACORN one? Were you honestly unaware that it turned out it was fake? In the video it shows him going into the building wearing a full on pimp costume for example, but it turns out he just filmed that part another day in another location and he was actually wearing a business suit during the interview with ACORN he filmed. Or, remember how in the video it seemed like he was saying that he was a pimp trying to help his ho evade taxes? In reality it turned out that he told them that he was a local elected official that was trying to help this poor young girl get her life back on track and get out of prostitution and that the first step was that she needed a place to live so that she could get away from her abusive pimp, but she was afraid to report her prostitution income because she didn't want to go to jail.

    O'Keefe is a monster.

    How hard to you folks think it is to obtain fake IDs? Is it so hard that half the high school and college students in the country can't get them? You think that O'Keefe couldn't have made up a couple dozen fake IDs with a laser printer and laminating machine and achieved the same result?
