Enough about voter fraud. If I want to commit voter fraud by impersonation, I will have to get precinct maps, find someone who lives there and go to that precinct.
When I get there, I will have no idea about the following things: If the person is registered to vote. The person has already voted. The person votes differently from me. A precinct worker knows that person and denies my attempt. My picture is taken.
Even if I go to several precincts, I have spent far too much time and risk during a workday for little effect. I would have been better off registering in several states and using absentee ballots.
If I want to make a difference, I need to be on the inside of the process. There I can use methods with proven track records of altering elections at every level – ballot manipulation, bribery, purging voter rolls, gerrymandering, precinct starving, relocating voting sites and hacking touchscreen voting machines.
Never miss a local story.
Anyone who defends the voter ID law with the election integrity defense is committing greater fraud than I am. It will accomplish nothing except disenfranchizing the poor and making voting more difficult.
