I've never heard of anyone claiming that "voter impersonation" is at issue at all. — Radish

Really? That's what voter ID laws supposedly prevent, people casting ballots using someone else's name,

Fe1ix,

But you're still insisting that there's no circumstance where passing voter ID laws could cause a reduction in fraudulent votes being cast (or at least not a significant reduction). — Radish

That's not my

STSTT,

If impersonation fraud is so very hard how did 32 dead people vote in eight different elections without anyone knowing about it until now?

To be fair, that article didn't demonstrate that dead people voted, just

As shown below, you failed. You didn't explain any procedure that would catch my fraud without also removing the legitimate homeless voter (especially if the homeless person has never had a driver's license or state ID). —

More importantly, you're misrepresenting how easy it is to register online in California. To do so (I checked) you need a driver's license or CA ID number, a Social Security number (last four digits) and a date of birth,

But they won't ask you for ID... it's illegal to ask, and if you try to show them an ID so they can look up your name on the list they say they're not allowed to look at an ID (I've tried it — they will look at your name/address

Fe1ix,

You're describing a lack of will, not a lack of ability. It's not impossible to detect voter ID fraud. Though your unlikely to find it if you don't even look for it.

OK, imagine two people. One is a

You're right. I don't recall that admission.

It has been a while. We went through most of the California laws, step by step. You had some trouble believing a government would pass laws and regulations that

Be careful; arguing with morons never educates the moron and sometimes confuses the audience as to who is whom.

I asked a local cop at a donut shop this morning,and he said well over 90% of homeless people they pick up have valid identification. So this claim about denying the poor and minorities the right to vote for not having a

I'm surprised no one has gone the luddite route yet. Grab your smartphone and take a shot of the screen. ;) For certain purposes, that can be the quickest route.

Fe1ix,

That's simply not true. Voter ID fraud is relatively easy to detect. ... It's both detectable and preventable right now. Strict voter ID laws don't prevent fraud.

Even reading newspapers and books can be addictions. Although, for some reason, reading is never criticized and is always lauded...not sure why.
