When I first started voting (California), if a person did not vote in the presidential election, they were automatically dropped from the voting records, seems reasonable.
Worked for years, then the dems in Sacramento said it was a burden on voter registration offices to keep track and voters would have to re-register to vote - weird.
However, with computers these days it would be a simple program.
Or voter ID or both.
Michigan Secretary of State, Ruth Johnson was having trouble getting the social security administration to help with purging dead voters off the voter roles.
Instead of yet another law that goes unenforced how about we replace the cockroaches w/ folks who will do the job. It seems far more effective.
It can be done at the state level. We don’t need the Feds to do it.
Seriously, this is all quite easily accomplished. Just knowing someone has a forwarding order on file is enough to CANCEL their welfare payments until they see an authorized case worker!
You can identify probables for further verification.
NO. 1,000 times NO. Fundamentally this is not something that needs the feds involved and they need not be invited in if not necessary. The States run elections, States can set this policy. Stop inviting the future destruction of federalism, pressure your legislature.
The late Laurencia Bembenik (Run, Bambi, run) got false ID right out of the cemetery when she broke out of prison and escaped to Canada. She and her boyfriend of the moment (brother of another inmate) lifted identities out of the cemetery and got false IDs from that.
Poor Bambi. Such a pretty girl who led such a miserable life and early death.
Do we really need to give any more power to the centralized behemoth that is eating us alive?
States should set up their own system using the computer technology which would automatically notify the county registrar of voters in the event of various actions such as; deaths, marriage/divorce, felony convictions, drivers license change, etc. This would go a long way towards keeping the roles updated.
