Holder: U.S. Should Automatically Register 'Every Eligible Voter'

by Tony Lee 12 Dec 2012, 2:30 PM PDT

On Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said the United States should automatically register "every eligible voter in America" by coordinating modern technology and existing databases that are available, while insisting in-person voter fraud rarely occurs.

In a speech at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston, Holder said "modern technology provides ways to address many of the problems that impede the efficient administration of elections."

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hold hearings on "the state of the right to vote" on December 19; any changes to the nation's voting laws would need Congressional approval.

Republicans concerned about the prevalence of voter fraud are hesitant to adopt laws that could make the elections more susceptible to fraud.

Holder, though, insisted voter fraud was essentially non-existent, even though a man posing as Holder was able to obtain his ballot earlier in the year at a Washington, D.C. polling location.

"You can't get groups of sufficient numbers of people that are willing to face that possibility and try to influence an election, which is why in-person voter fraud simply doesn't exist to the extent that some on the right have said that it does," Holder claimed.

There’s an easier way to do that. It’s called not requiring registration. Which is what they really want.

It matters not who *casts* the votes;all that matters is who *counts* them.

“You can’t get groups of suffix Kent numbers of people”
Why not? You can just keep using the same group of people across the state. Especially with early voting there’s plenty of time.

Way too many people are registered to vote.

Anyone who is too stupid or too uninterested to register should be banned for ten years.

Anyone whose benefit/tax ratio is a negative number should not be allowed to register.

Good, start with remedying the regular disenfranchisement of our voters in the military.

How far is it from what Holder wants to
You are registered to vote, you WILL vote.

We regularly see 130% voter turnout for Democrats in certain counties in NM. It takes a little while for the dead Democrats to vote, but they always make it to the polls.

What’s the point when they have the entire NFL and NBA registered in every precinct?

That would explain why they didn't recognize, nor utilize these as a means of escape.

I’m surprised 0bammy and Holder don’t have dim operatives down at the southern border handing out voter registrations as they stream across the border.
