Vote early, but vote once

I've been reading many posts in the Daily Herald about why requiring a photo ID to vote -- saying that's unfair to the poor, the elderly, and so on. Nobody yet has come up with a plan to confirm those who are voting are actually able to vote with that name.

Recently I read that a Maryland Democrat has dropped out of a Congressional race after the state party said she cast ballots there and in Florida in the 2006 and 2008 elections. This article was in The Washington Post, just in case we have any of those who want to verify the facts.

In addition to this fraud that has taken place for years, we still have those who think people should be able to "vote early and often." What's to stop me from voting myself in my district, then voting in my deceased father's district or my deceased father-in-law's district? Not that I would do that, but I'm sure there are those who would and do.

What kinds of checks do we have in place to stop something as ridiculous as that or stopping the Democrat from Maryland, Wendy Rosen, who voted in two states for more than six years?

The answer is that it's possible and not only that, but factually probable that voter fraud is happening in every election with no way to check and verify the credentials of voters. How many elections are really won by the real registered voters as compared to the manufactured votes that can't be checked? And why is it that the Democrats are the ones who don't want the voters to be checked or have photo voter ID cards? Could it be that there are more Wendy Rosens out there?
