    Death penalty for voter fraud

    So would you support capital punishment for people who commit voter fraud?

    Please explain why or why not.

    I think those who do voter fraud have their electoral rights removed and spend up to 1 year in prison. But the electoral rights removal part is for life.

    I disapprove of the death penalty universally, for anything, except treason or high treason.

    Would having to produce an valid ID be a better first step?

    Capital punishment for voter fraud seems just a bit harsh. There should be huge fines and jail time though to put an end to this. A law without consequences is worthless.

    Some people who are against voter ID laws is because voting is so important. Using that same logic, if voting is so important, then voter fraud should have serious consequences. Death penalty? No.

    There is no evidence of any considerable voter fraud. While voter fraud should be investigated and harsh penalties applied(but not the death penalty, that is just ****ing stupid), there is no evidence that there is any significant "this" to put an end to. It certainly did not have any effect on the past election, or the one before, or the one before that, and so on.

    It looks like the states handle voter fraud from what I can see, with differing penalties for each state. First result from Google I found from a state: Voter Fraud

    The criminal penalty for fraudulently voting when not legally qualified or for voting more than once when qualified is a fine of $300 to $500, one to two years in prison, and disenfranchisement. Anyone who votes or attempts to vote by assuming the name of another is subject to a fine of $500, one year in prison, and disenfranchisement (CGS § 9-360).

    Other types of fraudulent voting violations carry stiffer penalties. Voting in violation of absentee ballot laws is punishable by a fine of up to $5,000, up to five years in prison, or both (CGS §9-359). The same penalty applies to anyone who votes or refuses to vote in consideration of anything of value (CGS §§ 9-333x and 9-333y)). With respect to the latter offense, the commission can also (1) impose a civil penalty of $2,000 per offense or twice the amount of any improper payment or contribution, whichever is greater; (2) issue an order for the recipient to return the item of value; (3) issue an order revoking the intentional violators' eligibility to be appointed or serve as an election, primary, or referendum official or unofficial checker or in any capacity at the polls (CGS § 9-7b(2) and (3)).
    So disenfranchisement is done by at least some states.

    Usually because it doesn't get caught.
