Daily blog: It’s November 14th, and the solution to voter fraud is:
1 – Voter identification. There is no reasonable argument to be made against voter identification. Most Americans already have an identification card of some type. Plus, you can get one at your local Department of Motor Vehicles.
2 – We should use hand-marked paper ballots with random numbers at the top and a scribble box at the bottom. The voter could then have their ballot scanned and a copy given to them. After voting ends, each voter could enter the random number online to view it. If there is a discrepancy, they could come forward and challenge it with their copy.
3 – No universal mail-outs. Absentee voters would need to request the same type of ballot as above. And voters must have them postmarked ten days before the election.
“If an election is to be determined by a majority of a single vote, and that can be procured by a party through artifice or corruption, the Government may be the choice of a party for its own ends, not of the nation for the national good.” – John Adams, 1797
