Full story: Over 40,000 People Are Registered to Vote in Both Virginia and Maryland

As midterm elections quickly approach, many are starting to think about voting and potential fraud at the polls. And once again, we find that there is cause to be worried about voter fraud here in the U.S. It appears in a new report that 44,000 people are registered to vote in both Virginia and Maryland.
At what point do we get common sense voter ID laws?

It should be a requirement. Of course the gun grabbers want illegal aliens to be allowed to vote, along with those that live off the government looking for more free handouts. The Dems might as well say, We will give you free unlimited data plans if you vote for us to go along with your free rent, medical, food, and current cell phone plans.

This is such a simple solution. Everyone over the age of 18 in TX (I assume in other states) is required to have a state issued ID. Why is it such a big deal to prove who you are when you go vote? It is silly to for it not to be a law.

I get ID'd for alcohol, for cashing a check, going to a casino/bar/club, any significant purchase in cash from a major retail supplier (which I think is BS), etc. Yet one of the most important rights/privileges bestowed to law-abiding Americans requires no verification? Voting can effect so much more than any of the other things I previously mentioned, yet there in no ID requirement. One word. Absurd.

A lot of places its only a "suggestion" and not really law. Also, what if you decided to go vote in MD, do you have to show ID there as well? ;)
I am not sure... maybe i am wrong, but as far as I know I cannot just go anywhere to vote. I have to go to my designated presinct. They check my I.D. and cross refference that with the list they have. If my name is not on that list, I don't get to vote. It's as siimple as that. I guess it is different in other states, but that is how it has always been here since i have been voting for the last 25 years.

The only way I know of for me to vote anywhere other than that is to fill out an absentee ballot.

In VA you have a specific prescint you go to and you have to show ID. First time voters have to show 2 forms.
now voter ID won't fix people being registered in two states, and they can easily mail in their ballots claiming they wont be in town.

Ok, I see your point now.

I had to show ID in Florida when I tried to go vote Osama out of office. It should be a national law but I see why the dems don't want it to be. Too many free votes would be lost. :grin:
