Posted by deathinahole on 11/6/2012 5:10:00 PM (view original):So how much time and effort is appropriate to attempt to stop one case of voter fraud?
The answer, of course, is 1.
Except with vote by mail, it's the unconfirmed fraudulent votes that are the problem. "This one doesn't smell like Fred. Throw it out!"
Or, on the other hand, we could just take a few small steps to prevent it from happening at all.
As much as it takes? So we should spare no expense to guarantee there is no voter fraud?
I have no problem with making sure dead people aren't voting, people aren't registered twice, etc. ID is a little more complicated because not everyone has one.
But absentee ballot fraud doesn't seem to be a problem. If you have evidence to the contrary, I'm all ears.
