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

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

    Multiple choice poll.

    1.In person voting(unless you are bed ridden). If you in the state you show up to your polling place or if you are out of state you go to a designated polling place for out of state voters/absentee voting.
    2.Voter ID/registration required to be shown to vote
    3.ID/driver's license required to be shown to vote.
    4.ID/driver's license to register to vote.
    5.Voter ID/registration card with a photo of the voter.
    6.In person to register to vote.
    7.S.S. card to register to vote.
    8.birth certificate or naturalization document to register to vote.
    9.Proof of address to register to vote.
    other



    1.In person voting
    Unless you are crippled then there is no reason what so ever that you can not make it to a polling place to vote.


    2.Voter ID/registration required to be shown to vote
    3.ID/driver's license required to be shown to vote.


    You should prove that you are who you say you are when you vote.

    6.In person to register to vote.


    There should be no registrations by mail, you should have to show up the state election board with all the required documents to register to vote.


    4.ID/driver's license to register to vote.

    7.S.S. card to register to vote.
    8.birth certificate or naturalization document to register to vote.
    9.Proof of address to register to vote.

    What good does it do to have a voter ID card if there is nothing to verify who you say you are when you go to register to vote?


    5.Voter ID/registration card with a photo of the voter.
    In my state voter ID cards are just printed card stock.Anyone with a computer can print one of these out. A bank wouldn't let you use your Voter registration card to get a loan why should something so important as voting only require a printed piece of card stock or paper?

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

    If there is no problem, then -nothing.
    But there is, and it is with the political parties, who do not wish to reform/improve the process.
    I still think that we need a national ID/social security/Medicare extended/drivers license/medical care/chipped card.
    One does everything and cannot be lost or stolen.
    But this requires infrastructure and trained/intelligent people, neither of which we have.....
    Some people think that it is bad that dead people vote in Chicago and that illiterates vote in the southern states. What is really BAD is the candidates can be brain dead (tea bagging conservatives) or illiterate...
    Do they read the bills that they wish to have enacted? This is what I mean by "illiterate". Or, do they make them to be readable (the coffee drinking liberals)

    I don't see voter fraud that much of a problem, sure it happens occasionally, but it can be committed by legal citizens. The paragon of American conservatism committed voter fraud a few years ago. People move or have homes is different parts of the country.

    Election fraud is a huge problem, that's where the vote can be manipulated after the fact. Systems that record the vote on electron media should be illegal. Bring back paper ballots and use electronic systems to create them.

    The first sentence should have read:

    The paragon of American conservatism - Ann Coulter - committed voter fraud a few years ago. People move or have homes is different parts of the country.

    how about a deployment, or simply working overseas? i don't mind having to jump through hoops to prove i am who i say i am, but in 2008 the captain of the ship wasn't exactly going to loan me a plane to fly back from the coast of East Africa.

    I think showing a valid form of ID would be ideal.

    for both voting and registration.

    methinks raising the mandatory punishment for voter fraud might help as well; realizing that what we are talking about here is the undermining of our social contract and the deliberate overthrow of our form of governance, a few lifetime sentences (i wouldn't be averse, in extreme cases, to the death penalty) would probably bring home to everyone the seriousness of the issue.

    They can't set up a polling place on a military base or embassy? If there is circumstances that would prevent someone from driving to a polling place I can see allowing someone to vote early or even by mail.
