    So you have no real evidence of any significant voter fraud in actual elections?

    YOu know the very nature of it makes numbers impossible... unless the same person is coming into the same polling locations multiple times... abut there have been a few hundred cases of absentee ballot fraud and others, though as you have said not statistically large numbers.

    But why is it that Florida makes it so ridiculously hard for felons to regain their voting rights? Oh yeah ... because they tend to vote Democratic....

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    and if you dont think resistration frad leads to voter fraud... why would anyone register voters that will never vote?

    I think this is part of the reason dems dont want IDs at the polls.
    ...because Acorn employees were paid for the number of people they registered. Acorn never really perpetrated registration fraud rather its employees perpetrated payroll fraud AGAINST Acorn.

    THAT isn't a small number and yes, I am sure that illegals vote HEAVILY (D) but they shouldnt be voting at all... florida filed suit against DHS for access to a database to help them identify illegals... then the Feds sued florida and prevented them from purging the voter rolls.

    You might need an ID toregister for college, but in a lot of cases the address will be the parents' address. That's not good enough for most voter ID laws, especially if you go to college in another state.

    So you can vote where you are, or make a long commute on a Tuesday. Or you could vote absentee, but now that's a whole different game and much easier to commit fraud.

    there is a marked difference between no problem, and not being able to prove there is a problem... why would the DoJ fight to keep 182,000 illegals on the books in florida?

    How so? Just because it is their parent's HOUSE doesn't mean it can't be their place of residence. Are the voter ID laws requiring people to own homes to vote?

    Sounds like a solution in search of a problem.
