Would you be in favor of a stamp system (like at an amusement park) at polling places to crack down on voter fraud?

That would be fine (though unnecessary) but required Id's, that makes no sense at all, a lot of homeless people would not be able to vote. Complain about voter fraud when it actually makes a difference in the election.

I think the bigger fraud potential is related to mail in ballots, early voting, and electronic voting machines.

Only if sufficiently stable to remain visible for no less than 24 hrs or duration of voting period.

I'd gladly poke my finger in a bottle of purple ink when I cast my vote!

Of course the practice would completely useless in OR & WA & other places that do mail-in ballots exclusively...

I don't think that would help at all. People have a specific polling place they vote at, and their names are checked off when they vote. It's not like you can just go through 20 times.

Also, would that make it so people would have to get a lot of voter ID cards. Because your card would fill up, and you would need a new one. Plus, you need room to have the polling/voter info.

Of course not, the only reason it works art amusement parks is because you benefit from HAVING they stamp, if it was the other way around people would just wash it off.

Voter ID works well enough.

It does mot create any obstacles for people who have the right to vote, so I'm ok with it.

That would stop anyone from voting twice. However, I thought the complaint was about people who are not eligible to vote, either because it's the wrong place, they are not citizens etc.

It would be easy to cheat.

If Iraq can do it, we can do it!
