    People who are complaining about voter fraud have yet to produce some proof that this is a serious problem.

    The problem is those running for office and the financing methods used. So called "voter fraud" is very, very minor.
    Also, the acceptance of political signs and goons at the polling places must be banned.
    And, "robotic telephone calls" must be banned.
    We have a lot of work to do

    All things that reduce the cost of voting must be done.
    But ,there is the convenience of the process that must be considered.This has, in the past, been a prime concern. Voting machines were very durable and may have been used for hundreds of years.
    Now we have the electronic units - so much easier to use and faster.
    Maybe Election Day should be a national holiday...
    I still favor mandatory voting with the "none of the above" option.

    I prefer paper ballots. Machines can be hacked,go haywire or something else.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    How can you prove fraud in something that has anonymous ballots? It would be like looking at a bucket of dirt on your front porch and trying to prove which neighbors yard it came from . Unless there are a ton of dead people and Disney characters on voter rolls there is no way to prove voter fraud.

    So...we have to take it on faith that it's happening and expend resources to fix something we arent even sure is there?

    So... you expect us to take it on faith that it is not happening. You have yet to prove that it is not happening.


    and expend resources to fix something we aren't even sure is there?
    I find it hard to believe that it would cost extra to pay a polling place worker or someone at the election board to ask for drivers license/ID,SS card, birth certificate? I also find it hard to believe that with all the foreign aid and other nonsense the US throws money away on that there would be an issue with the cost associated with preventing or cutting down on voter fraud.

    You dont prove a negative, it's on YOU to prove that there is voter fraud going on and that it's a serious problem. My part comes IF you can do that.

    I find it hard to believe that it would cost extra to pay a polling place worker or someone at the election board to ask for drivers license/ID,SS card, birth certificate? I also find it hard to believe that with all the foreign aid and other nonsense the US throws money away on that there would be an issue with the cost associated with preventing or cutting down on voter fraud.
    If it costs $1, its too much to spend on a problem that you havent even established as being a serious one.

    Re: What should be done to cut down or help prevent voter fraud?

    I put other but not really to stop fraud, to stop idiots from voting. I'm pretty sure this is against the law now but we need to ask two simple questions:

    -How many states are in the union?

    and

    -Recite the Pledge of Allegiance

    Can't do that tough **** go about your business.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
