Voter Fraud

Why voter fraud must be prevented

July 24, 2013

Outright voter fraud is very rare in Ohio. But it does happen, and we sometimes wonder whether Buckeye State residents understand the real danger in the practice....

In all the ranting and ravings of the fanatical liberals in numerous forums, I have yet to see one valid reason for not implementing Voter ID Laws.

In fact, I've yet to encounter anyone who can offer up even the slightest hint of a semi-intelligent debate. Every asinine argument that is put forth is shot down in flames by my immense logic and reason. And of course the facts.

Sad but true.

The republicans don't care the absentee ballots! How would that benefit them?

Wisconsins Voter ID law requires the voter to send in a copy of their ID before a ballot is sent out. Seems to me that would address absentee ballots.

As I've said befire (I don't know if it's 103 or 104), voter ID laws word. That's why libs don't like them.

When you do see election fraud, it invariably involves election officials (Poll Workers) taking steps to change election results or it involves "absentee ballots" (dead people) which voter ID laws can't prevent.

If no dead people show up at the polls to vote than why do so many vote, particularly in WV and Chicago?

Voter ID laws would without a doubt eliminate that fraud.

The answer to the question is: No dead person has "ever" (and that means "never") showed up at the POLLS to vote, there little buddy except in the make the believe world of the republicans. Google: how many dead people show up at the polls to vote. As for your drivers license being expired, well that would depend on if you were a Democrat or republican!

All one has to do is google voter fraud and they can find the cases in numerous states. In WA, ACORN was caught with ~2000 fraudulent voter registration forms.

While that may not be enough to sway a national election, as this op-ed pointed out, it is certainly enough to sway a state election and there's no doubt they would turn a county or local election.

And that doesn't take into account how many fraudulent registration forms get past officials. As has been proven, voter ID laws that require an ID to produce a ballot would eliminate fraud. That is why liberals oppose such laws.

What I find amazing is they refuse to allow a man old enough to die for his country the right to drink a beer and mandate ID to prove a soldier is old enough to consume alcohol but they want ANYONE be allowed to vote.

Wrong answer! Try again, there little buddy!! "Did Dad vote in person?" "And what happens when "you" go to vote and your drivers license is expired? Even tho your signature matches the signature on your ballot.

Voter ID laws would also eliminate the type of fraud that liberal organizations like ACORN are famous for. No matter the number of illegal registrations, if an ID is scanned to verify information before a ballot can be issued there is no way the thousands of voters organizations like ACORN sign up every year can vote in elections.

When there is election fraud?

Wait,I'm confused? How can a poster election fraud is rare, then say it is limited to one (one numerous times) now say when it happens, it is limited to election officials? That's more flip flopping than Kerry and Romney put together.

What our simple minded friend fad to grasp though is that were an ID scan required to produce a ballot, the only way election fraud could be limited to democratic officials as our simple minded friend now implies is if those democratic officials had the ID in hand. That's not impossible for WV Democrats but it does make it harder to get away with.

It would be hard, probably impossible, to send an effective group of people to the POLLS to vote without being detected. When you do see election fraud, it invariably involves election officials (Poll Workers) taking steps to change election results or it involves absentee ballots (dead people) which voter ID laws can't prevent.

Now spin that little buddy

Denver said “The case Natalie Tenant is talking about is the same one "Guy007" is talking about. So I will ask you the same question; "did those dead voting in the southern counties of West Virginia show up at the polls to vote”

Guy07 has already answered that question when he said “Would I.D.'s take care of the many dead voting in the southern counties of West Virginia? The answer to that question is "YES". That alone is suffice to say voter i.d.s is a good thing!!!”

It’s really a no brainer, so simple that to question how it eliminates fraud reflects more on those who oppose to the ID law than anything else.

Voter comes in, has his ID scanned and is issued a ballot. As such, no other person can access the ballot thus confirming the person who voted is the person the actual voter. This law in no way discriminates against anyone and in no way hinders anyone’s ability to vote.

Those who say otherwise is either lying or has an agenda.

Or both!!!!!

It's called spin; anything to hide the truth. If the state were to require an ID to vote and obtain a ballot as they do EVERY other service, it would eliminate voter fraud.

The loons on the left don't want to discuss this though as they would lose a large contingency of their voting base.

Natalie Tenant tried to claim that the recent voter fraud in Lincoln County that sent elected Democrats to jail could not have been eliminated with voter ID laws. I disagree. If one has their identification scanned and that is the mechanism that provides the ballot, how can it not prevent fraud?
