Your name is also on a list. So, if for some reason you don't have the card, you go in there, show them your name on the list and present ID such as your passport, and then they cross you off. No one knows who you are going to vote for, you mark it down on a ballot, which gets thrown into a sealed box with everyone else's. It just seems very simple to me.
For better or worse, the government really doesn't know where we all are. People could register and vote in multiple states with little risk of being caught. People could register and vote using multiple false identities with little risk of being caught. People could register and vote using the identities of dead, homeless, underage, non-resident individuals with little risk of getting caught.

The only reason this doesn't happen on a bigger scale is that most of us are inclined to obey the law.

The more complicated and pain in the butt registration becomes, the less people in the US care to vote IMO. Voter fraud has always existed, so I find it funny that some have made it a big issue.

New Florida vote scandal feared
By Greg Palast
Reporting for BBC's Newsnight, Oct. 26, 2004

A secret document obtained from inside Bush campaign headquarters in Florida suggests a plan - possibly in violation of US law - to disrupt voting in the state's African-American voting districts, a BBC Newsnight investigation reveals.

Two e-mails, prepared for the executive director of the Bush campaign in Florida and the campaign's national research director in Washington DC, contain a 15-page so-called "caging list".

It lists 1,886 names and addresses of voters in predominantly black and traditionally Democrat areas of Jacksonville, Florida.

An elections supervisor in Tallahassee, when shown the list, told Newsnight: "The only possible reason why they would keep such a thing is to challenge voters on election day."

Ion Sancho, a Democrat, noted that Florida law allows political party operatives inside polling stations to stop voters from obtaining a ballot.

that will offset all the early voter intimidation by the unions and other like groups

For the BBC to think these types of lists aren't held by both parties is fairly naive. Of course, they know better, but have an agenda.

Disappointed with how the American presidential election concluded? Apparently, Bush was disappointed, too! Whether or not you value "liberal" news sources, pay attention to the hard numbers and facts presented in the articles below. Then, ask yourself, “Do I value democracy?”

Don't spam it (and yes I am a person who holds a grudge).
