These common-sense laws safeguard election integrity by requiring a voter to present identification before casting a ballot. A Washington Post poll reveals that voter ID laws have support from 74 percent of Americans. And voter fraud is widespread:
--According to The Columbus Dispatch, at least 1 in 5 registered voters in Ohio should be ineligible to cast a ballot.
--True the Vote, an election integrity group, notified 160 counties that there are more voters on registration rolls than eligible voters in each location.
--In February, the Pew Center found 2.8 million people with active registrations in more than one state.
--According to Project Veritas, the North Carolina Board of Elections was given a list of 30,000 residents who died between 2002 and 2012 and still are registered to vote. (And that's a state Obama won by only 14,000 votes in 2008!)
Good citizens must ensure that Americans enjoy a secure system of elections. There are ways to help stop voter fraud. What can you do?
--Volunteer to be a poll watcher in your precinct, or sign up for True the Vote's poll volunteer program.
--When you encounter a case of possible voter fraud, report it to election officials, media and lawmakers.
--Support voter ID laws in your state.
--Demand that Congress investigate cases of fraud.
--Pressure state lawmakers to require verification of voters' citizenship using the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements database. In states where fraud is rampant, task forces must investigate.
--State and federal judges have blocked or postponed implementation of voter ID laws in several states. Pressure governors and state attorneys general to have such voter ID rulings overturned. The system cannot be trusted!
--Go to http://www.EndVoterFraudNow.com and sign Project Veritas' open letter to Holder, demanding that he "ensure enforcement of all federal and state laws passed to protect the integrity of America's electoral system -- effective immediately."
--Finally, share this information to help protect the integrity of America's election process.
Does voter fraud actually exist? Yes! And it threatens the very fabric of our constitutional republic.
In America, voting is a privilege that belongs only to citizens who are qualified to vote. We have the right to safeguard it at all costs.
