A recent Pew Study shows the U.S. voting registry to be a massive failure, including the following facts:
There are currently nearly 2 million dead people on active voter registries across America.
1 in 8 voter registrations is invalid or contains major inaccuracies, according to the study.
Almost 3 million Americans are currently registered to vote in multiple states.
The U.S spends over 12 times as much to maintain voter lists as does Canada.
Pew’s research suggests that elections authorities need to take a proactive approach to rooting out errors and keeping lists current, rather than relying on voters to correct errors and make changes to their registration. So what are Americans paying the government all that money for?
There is a very simple solution to this problem, and it is called Voter ID. Contrary to what some Democrats say about how there is no vote fraud in America, The Faces of Vote Fraud slide-show tells us a different story. Requiring Voter ID when voting makes it very difficult for dead people to vote, among other things. Protecting our electoral system from vote fraud is needed to retain our true form of Democracy in America. All states should pass Voter ID laws and enforce them vigorously in the 2012 elections. Every fraudulent vote cast makes one honest person’s vote not count for anything. Demand Voter ID America.
