Legal Voter Registration & Identification

WatchTheVoteUSA.com

The right of the voter to not have their vote diluted by having illegal voters vote, or legal voters voting illegally by voting more than once, or by having ‘dead’ people casting a vote cannot be ignored.

These following items are contained in our Part 3, but since these pertain specifically with the issues of legal registration they are copied here intact for closer consideration:

32) Picture-voter ID cards, used only for voting, must be issued to all registered voters for free by each county Boards of Elections, just as drivers licenses are now issued by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Stations around each county could be “deputized” to issue these cards for those who have trouble traveling, and a special unit of the board of elections could issue such cards to individuals who are hospitalized or homebound due to illness or age. The Board of Elections and its designated places would have to have cameras, just as The Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMVs) do now, to take picture IDs of those registered voters who are registering to vote for the next election. The Board of Elections, like the military, and police departments, and the fire departments, are money losers for the voters, but are necessary to protect our country in relation to each of their necessary duties. The free picture Identification, and the roving registration teams for the infirm, will solve the objection for poor or financially strapped voters, or for those who find it difficult to travel. Those who object to picture IDs under these circumstances – must want dishonest elections – or are really stupid.

(Principle: make it as easy as possible for everyone to vote, and minimize a voter voting illegally once, or voting twice or more by mandatory use of the picture ID. Note: the danger of VOTER fraud is nothing compared to Election-Vendor fraud perpetrated by election-vendors as big as a company such as ES&S, Hart InterCivic, or Dominion, which three mega-election vendors combined are processing 96%+ of the vote in the USA on their secret computer programs, off limits to voters, candidates, and even election officials by their demands, uniformly upheld by the courts – so far.)

33) Instant and same day registration would be done away with. Voters would have to register at least 30 days in advance of election day to be eligible to vote. Ease of voting is NOT the only value, or making it as easy as possible for every citizen who doesn’t even care much about when election day it to vote. Those who were apathetic this year, but wake up to the importance of voting after the 30 day deadline has passed – can register for next year’s election and vote every year thereafter. Equally important as ease of voting, is that none of the already eligible voters have their vote diluted in any way, as demanded by the three above referenced US Supreme Court decision. See http://www.watchthevoteusa.com/u-s-supreme-court-decisions.  

(Principle: Minimize the possibility of a voter voting illegally by confronting election workers with claims they cannot always resolve quickly and accurately.)  

*******

34) In past decades many boards of elections mailed out postcards to every registered voter about 4 weeks in advance of election day, after the 30 day period for registration before election day had passed. The postcards that were returned due to the death of the voter or due to change of residency helped to keep the list of registered voters clean. This should be done at again, or something that accomplished the same goal.

(Principle: Minimize the possibility of a voter voting illegally by confronting election workers with claims they cannot always resolve quickly and accurately.)

35) The purple finger (dipping one’s finger in purple ink after voting), as has been done in India and elsewhere, should be looked seriously for use in the USA. Once all early voting is eliminated from election day once again, the “purple finger” would go a long way towards preventing people from physically going from one place to another on election day in order to vote more than once.

(Principle: Minimize the possibility of a voter voting illegally by confronting election workers with claims they cannot always resolve quickly and accurately.)

36) Some method to allow dead voters to be removed from voting roles must be instituted. Perhaps some counties have already worked this out, but perhaps a national website or at least State websites where coroners uploaded death notices would be a help. In turn these could be searched and collated by a Federal or State election offices or  the public to see who has died and must be removed from the voter rolls.

(Principle: Stop dead people from “voting” by those trying to commit systematic election fraud from any source.)

37) Ways should be explored to ensure that a voter cannot be registered in more than one county. This writer cannot imagine a way to do this without a national database in which each county could check to remove a voter from his or her last county of residence before registering him or her in the current county in which he or she reside. I know there are MAJOR, perhaps decisive objections to a national database of voters – and even some on our Watch The Vote USA team are TOTALLY opposed to any kind of a national database of voters. This writer just can’t figure any way to make sure a voter isn’t registered in more than one county without a national database of voters. Maybe someone else is far more imaginative on this point. Maybe it’s already been solved, but this writer is unaware of it.

Perhaps this would be a step in the right direction: when a voter registers to vote in a new county, they would be required to sign an affidavit listing the previous county he or she was registered in, if any. Then, because all new voters eligible to vote in the next election would have already registered 30 days in advance of election day, each local Board of Elections would have sufficient time to contact the previous county listed by the voter. Then the previous County could remove that voter from the voter rolls since they no longer live there. This would help ensure that each voter was only registered to vote in one County at a time.

Deliberate attempts at fraud in this matter would result in fines and jail terms for each violator, whether voter or election official.

Universal databases are fraught with potential dangers, and we do not fail to recognize this. We bring this up because the dangers of a National Database must be weighed against the dangers of people being registered to vote in more than one county and making sure that the dead no longer have a “right to vote”.

The above suggested practices would be a step in the right direction to ensure that each voter is only registered in one county at a time on each election day.

(Principle: To try to ensure that no voter is registered to vote in more than one county at a time.)

38) Every county must ensure that only United States citizens are registered to vote. Practices such as allowing non-citizens to vote with driver’s licenses must be ended.

Principle: Only eligible  US voters are to be allowed to vote.
