With today’s technology, it would be easy eliminate most voter fraud. Each voting place should have a video camera where a voter states his or her name and address which is the minimal information given to the election worker. Each party would be given a copy of the video recording. They could simply sift through the record for fraudulent voters. The evidence would be on the recording to prosecute. I think most criminals would be reluctant to provide video evidence of their crime and voter fraud would go way down.
I like this idea. It’s not as invasive as a biometric chip mentioned above (scary idea.)
I’m actually more worried about diebold vote counting fraud than actual people voting multiple times fraud. There is a funny video over at “The Onion” right now about Diebold accidentally releasing the election results early. Really good.
I’ve also heard about Karl Rove’s mailers with regards to vote manipulation. (You send out mailers to voter addresses requesting that they be responded to and returned. If they are not returned it is assumed that the voter does not live at the address and the vote is challenged and tosses out. You won’t even be aware that your vote didn’t count.) Can’t say for sure if it’s true but I bet there’s dirty tricks all around. It’s probably something he learned from the dems.
I hate to be paranoid but sometimes you just can’t help yourself.
