Not a bad idea, but here’s my (far simpler) take:

No absentee ballots except for military and contractors stationed overseas.

No early voting.

Purple ink on every thumb that votes.

Done.

Oh yeah, giving the feds control always works out for the best.
BTW I’m a former felon who votes legally. Will I be purged?

Ah, if the left only cared as much about legit voter registration as they do gun registration or even car registration (gotta get those tax $$$). I don’t know what the answer is, but a good first step (won’t happen though) is repealing the Motor Voter act.

I have long held that if people are not motived enough to register to vote without prodding they shouldn’t. The rationale for Motor Voter was to make registration easier. But it wasn’t all that hard before. You go to the county office and register. Now people find the county office for their unemployment check, for their welfare check, to get whatever license they need. What is it so hard to find to file to exercise their most precious right? What Motor Voter did, and the Democrats knew what they were doing, was opening registration up to further fraud. They succeeded.

I'm against national ID, but the thumbprint idea doesn't sound bad.

I don't understand why everyone isn't automatically registered when they turn 18. I mean, everyone is automatically registered for jury duty. Just tap into the social security database and have it keep track of people turning 18.
