The Case For Voter ID
Here are some facts from the 2012 election that have a direct bearing on voter ID.
To date, 46 states have prosecuted or convicted cases of voter fraud. More than 24 million voter registrations are invalid, yet remain on the rolls nation-wide. Here is some of the break down on that fact: There are over 1.8 million dead voters still eligible on the rolls across the country. According to one source it is estimated that Harry Reid has won his last three election solely because of the dead and non-resident voters. If you look at the poll number going into the elections, each time he was behind by several point according to those voters who were actually living at the time; however, he always celebrated the win election night. I was surprised to learn that I was still a registered voter in Clark County, Nevada and I haven’t been back there for over twenty years. Was being the operative word.
More than 2.75 million Americans are registered to vote in more than one state. Many of these are being voted by others, because of the lack of proof of identity at the polls. Just tell the poll worker the name you are using and enter into the booth to cast a vote.
True The Vote recently found 99 cases of potential felony interstate voter fraud.
12 Indiana counties have more registered voters than residents.
The Ohio Secretary of State admitted that multiple Ohio counties have more registered voters than residents.
Federal records showed 160 counties in 19 states have over 100 percent voter registration.
Just one example of voter fraud comes from Pennsylvania where four counties had ZERO republican voters even though they did have a substantial republican voter registration. Mitt Romney received ZERO votes in those counties. One might suspect that to be highly improbable.
The arguments against voter I.D. are specious to say the least. The single most valid reason against requiring voter id is to continue to allow corrupt politicians to win elections without the necessary popular support. My mind automatically hears any politician rant against a voter ID law he is admitting that he probably couldn’t win if it was enacted.
On the other hand just how popular is Voter ID?
• 74 percent of Americans support, according to The Washington Post.
• 71 percent of Latinos support it, according to the PEW Research Center.
