I'm all for voter id laws. I'm sorry, you can't do anything without ID, but you can vote?
this is nothing new
i think chicago allows dead people to vote 3 times
And if those 5000 people would have voted republican. Then they wouldnt have said anything and it would be the democrats crying about it. Dem or Rep dont care who votes. Just as long as the votes are for them.
+1, I think you should have to swipe your citizen ID/driver's license to even activate the voting terminal
This may be true of politicians...but WE should care.
Votes in US are secret ballot, so the GOP reporting claiming 5,000 non-citizens voted, says nothing about who they voted for.
Those 5,000 non-citizens could have voted republican for all we know.
The point is if they thought the votes was in their favor then they would of kept their mouth shut about it.
Naw, they all voted for the candidate that offers them free stuff and no I.D. checks. Whoever that was/is.
So is just automatically assumed fraudulent votes would be for democrats? What does that say about the democratic party?
No I am saying both sides would play dirty pool if they had a chance. Republicans and Democrats are no different as in the end they look out for their own wants and needs. Its almost like watching WWE where one side trash talks the other side but off camera they are all good friends.
I live in colorado and there was fraud with the votes this year and they had to keep recounting ballots because the republicans took democratic ballots in Boulder , CO and stuffed them into republicans. What does that show about republicans? Denver , CO is very laid back and it was the city and boulder and suburbs that are dems, rural counties got caught in the fraud and said it was an accident...really you can't trust anyone dems or repub. This fraudulant stuff happens everywhere in every state..
Really? They figured this out by comparing it to the driver license database?
I wonder how many of those 5000 don't have a driver's license, or a non-driver ID card?
Last I checked, it is not mandatory to have a state ID in order to be a citizen. In fact, last I checked, you only need to have been born here, or have gone through a naturalization process.
I guess I would have been counted a "Non-citizen voter" when I was stationed in Texas, as I had no Texan ID (I had a NYS one), but I was registered to vote in Texas.
So, I wonder how many were soldiers? How many were temporary residents, who still had an out-of-state license. I also wonder how many fell into other categories, like homeless (Who are still eligible citizens)
Who said it was calculated by looking at registered voters with no drivers license?
I'm pretty sure you have to claim weather your a resident or not when you get a drivers license, maybe their comparing voter registration to lists of people who DO have a drivers license, and have claimed not to be a resident.
Where I vote here in MA all the names and addresses of the people that vote at that location are posted on the wall right inside the door. All you have to do to get a ballot is tell them your name and address. so anyone could go in there and pick a name and address of that list and pose as them. Unless that person already voted and has been crossed off the list the poll workers have there is no way for them to know you are not that person. They never ask for any form of ID.
So if a group of people wanted to rig an election went there early after the polls opened they would only have to use names off the posted list to vote fraudulently.
Your article says it was figured by comparing voting rolls with the Driver License DB...
"Colorado conducted the study by comparing the state’s voter registration database with driver’s license records."
You have to do nothing of the sort. To get a license, you go to the DMV, show some ID, get a license... Maybe take a test if you don't currently have a license.
Fact of the matter, comparing the DL database to voter rolls tells you NOTHING.
This isn't as bad as the rigged voting machines in Nevada that stole the election from its rightful winner, Sharron Angle.
