    Please explain why or why not.
    Implement the death penalty for malfeasance and the desire to commit voter fraud will died down.

    Bit by bit the Internet is killing the human spirit.

    No. Killing people for voter fraud is an action that possesses no wisdom, reason, or goodness, so logically it is a behavior we should avoid.

    Only tyrannies draft punishments completely unproportional to the crime. Solid fine, possible minimum security jail time.

    Re: Death penalty for voter fraud

    I voted 'no'...and what a ridiculous poll.

    And the next poll might be whether we put people to death for starting ridiculous polls.

    Btw, I also vote 'no' to that one.

    I wouldn't strongly oppose it, but jail time, fine and permanent loss of voting privileges would probably suffice. An extreme penalty like this will theoretically only harm those stupid enough to still try getting away with it.

    Here's the vid from youtube. Maybe you'll find this site more palatable.
    Although that guy is an awesome artist, that video does nothing to back up your claims that:

    it doesn't get caught.
    The video shows the potential for abuse does exist, but no actual evidence.

    Re: Death penalty for voter fraud

    I don't understand why everyone thinks this is so ridiculous. Voter fraud can change the outcome of an election. That can potentially get millions of people killed. It's been going on in parts of Africa for decades. It isn't some victimless, inconsequential crime. It can end up costing lives.
    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.

    The go to the African section and ask your poll question for what people think about voter fraud in Africa.

    It's not my poll or my question, nor is there anything about the wording to suggest it was intended to be specific to any one country. Still, the point stands anywhere in the world, voter fraud can have deadly consequences on a massive scale, so the idea of it being punishable by death doesn't seem that far off the mark to me. If I'm wrong, say why.
