Listening to the media and civil rights groups, you might think the sky was falling and early voting was ended in North Carolina. Any reform not originated by Democrats must be bad. According
to media reports, early voting has increased and remains one of
the many options for voters. ...

"If the available evidence suggests that the amount of voter fraud is understated, the evidence that voter-ID laws suppress voting is nonexistent.
In elections held after new voter-ID laws were enacted in Georgia and Tennessee, for instance, minority turnout either was stable or increased. In Tennessee, the turnout among Hispanics of
voting age rose to 34.7% in 2012 from 19.2% in 2008, according to surveys by the U.S. Census Bureau, even though a strict new photo ID law was in effect in 2012."
"When it comes to the subject of voter suppression, it is revealing that Mr. Obama avoided statistics earlier this month and relied entirely on conditional verbs: voters "could be turned away from
the polls . . . may suddenly be told they can no longer vote . . . may learn that without a document like a passport or a birth certificate, they can't register."

target="" class="">in the Wall Street Journal, Robert Popper, former DOJ senior attorney deconstructs Obama's bogus statistics and arguments in his latest speech with an article entitled
"Political Fraud About Voter Fraud. - The president's selective statistics are red meat to supporters, but still bogus." Journalists are not paying attention or reporting on basic
information. The President is playing loose and fast with the facts while engaging in such an discussion on race.
Mr. Obama also cited an "analysis" showing that only 40 voters "were indicted for fraud" from 2002 to 2005. That number is drawn from an Aug. 2, 2005, Justice Department news release—which
describes the department's "Ballot Access and Voting Integrity" initiative—and from a related list of federal cases. The release mentioned 120 pending election-fraud investigations, 89 prosecutions
and 52 convictions.It is preposterous to cite that news release as proof that voter fraud is rare. The release contains no information concerning prosecutions in any of the 50 state court systems for violations
of state voting laws, even though these are far more common than prosecutions for violations of federal voting laws. Even as a list of federal offenses, the news release is inadequate. Justice did
not claim to have compiled all convictions, prosecutions or investigations—let alone all known or unsolved cases—involving federal voter fraud. The release was only a list of legal actions relating
to what was then a three-year-old initiative.

The diversity of problems that can corrupt the election process, from inept management to multiple avenues of fraud, require
multiple solutions - a fact that the "voter ID won't prevent this problem" crowd often ignores.
But the more inaccurate the voter rolls are, the more important the commonsense safeguard of photo voter ID becomes because, as the bipartisan Carter-Baker commission noted in its
2005 recommendation to adopt photo voter ID, "Election officials need to make sure that the person arriving at the polling site is the same one that is named on the registration list."
Inaccurate voter rolls also exacerbate the problem of mail ballot fraud, which even the staunchest "http://www.rifuture.org/john-marion-common-cause-costs-of-voter-id-outweight-benefits.html" target="">voter ID opponents say is where the "real voter fraud" occurs.
Yet voter fraud deniers, taking their lead from Eric Holder's Department of Justice, routinely fight both voter ID laws and voter roll cleanup
efforts enacted by states working to ensure honest and fair elections that inspire public confidence.
Voter Fraud? If they’re not catching the easy stuff, what else are they
"Supervisors are tasked with maintaining an accurate voter roll. One of the requirements on the Supervisors is to ensure that voters provide a
legal residence address. Yet a December 2013 analysis shows more than 3,000 voter registrations statewide listing their residence address at a UPS store, potentially illegally."
