While several liberal courts are striking down reasonable requirements to show ID at the polls, that requirement may not even help in the face of absurd, instant voter-registration laxities in some states.
When I attended the University of Wisconsin for Law and Business School, I voted once in the Presidential Election there. Wisconsin law allowed me to instantly register and vote there on Election Day.
That’s a problem. Ditto with Minnesota, which also has same day voter registration. In those states, even if you show ID, that won’t prevent voter fraud because there is no way to check if the ID is valid, if the person is the same one as on the ID, if they are a U.S. citizen, or if the person didn’t vote in multiple other precincts on the same day. All of these things are possible.
And that’s why the likelihood of massive voter fraud in places like Minnesota and Wisconsin is likely. And don’t expect the day when voters dip their fingers in permanent ink, Iraqi-style. The ACLU would be all over that. Bar bouncers can stamp you, but the federal government? Liberal do-gooder lawyers who want to prevent authentic, fraud-free elections wouldn’t hear of it.
Get rid of instant/same-day voter registration in elections in America. It’s the only way to get rid of some of this fraud.
