No. There is absolutely zero evidence that voter fraud is a serious problem. ZERO.

Love how liberals state how there have only been minimal cases. They leave out a very crucial word though. Minimal cases 'caught'.

Of course there won't be a lot of cases caught of something that is ridiculously easy to do.

With 31 credible cases in a billion votes cast, I don't think that it s a fucking problem at all.

Every reference or study I have been able to find says no, including the one from my state's very close gubernatorial election that may have been one of the closest watched and reviewed elections in US history. So I'll go with the obvious no.

There are a lot of butt hurt conservatives here. Let's predict the future... If repub's gain control of the Senate, the election was fair and square. If the dem's maintain control it was because of fraud.

Closing polling locations, shortening early voting hours, and increased difficulty of registering voters, not to mention voter ID laws, are all attempts at voter suppression.

A problem, yes. A serious problem, no. But it seems fair enough to require a valid ID to vote.

That's funny. I would say the same about capital punishment. Abortion. S gay marriage. But that does not seem to matter to gop. But yes. Let's make laws and spend millions of dollars in something that has never even remotely decided an election.

You can't catch something that is virtually impossible to stop the way most laws are now.

Soo when republicans argue about gun laws they say things like: it will only hurt law abiding citizens, just adds more paper work, it's our right, a criminal will find a way to do obtain it anyway. Well just replace "gun laws" with "voter ID laws".

Fraud is an issue, but the largest-scale fraud in America is when Republicans are suppressing poor people's votes. Voter suppression is the greatest fraud.

I was going to cite evidence from multiple sources about how there is very little voter fraud and the fact that way too many people who vote conservative do not know anything about the candidates they support but you wouldn't believe me anyway.

Voter fraud is not even a MINOR problem in the US. Voter ID is a single-party solution to a problem that doesn't exist. Unless that problem is young, minority, and disabled people voting. Then it's accomplishing exactly what they intended it to.

I am willing to make a documentary about me voting twice.

Even if it means I will go to jail.

Just to show how messed up our system is. To make a change. Sometimes sacrifices are necessary to make change.

Nope... Liberals don't see a problem getting dead people to vote.

In fact they let them vote two or even three times.

lol red. Good point. By the same token, just because we haven't caught very many gun owners who use their guns to threaten and manipulate people doesn't mean it isn't a problem. We better start restricting gun rights just in case.

"Racist republicans...?" Racist is thinking minorities are too stupid to obtain an ID and register when the law says to. That takes minimal planning. Of course the law is racist if it's not convenient for liberals. Who's the racist again?

That's the portion of votes in North Carolina that were cast by dead people or people that voted twice in 2012.

Yes and one that can't be properly quantified because most places don't even ask for a voter id to begin with. It could be statistically quantified using a few voting sites as "control sites" where the true id of each voter is verified before

Or after a vote is cast, but that'll never happen. Democrats don't want this problem to be properly quantified or even solved. They're the primary beneficiaries of dead and illegal voters.

Voter fraud is bad, but when you create laws to prevent thousands, and hundreds of thousands legal Americans from voting, we have a greater issue.

Voter suppression is the evilest manifestation of voter fraud, and that needs to be dealt with first.

During all the voting periods between 2002-2007, whereas a total of 300 million votes were cast, only 86 were found to be fraudulent. Even if voter frad were a thousand times worse than it currently is, it still wouldn't have affected an election.

the silly part is how the allegations of voter fraud are aimed at democrats, as if a few more dollars on their welfare check would inspire so many people to do that. No, the right has the the real incentive to cheat here, by reducing regulations.
