Voter Registration/Fraud
Getting voters registered and to the polls on election day are critical to success during any election. In recent years complaints have been raised against both major political parties regarding inappropriate and even fraudulent registration and poll activities. The hottest registration issue revolves around voter ID. The left says there is no such thing as voter fraud … and if you disagree, you’re a racist. It is discriminatory and depresses minority turnout. They attack those who dare to support voter ID laws as “anti-voting rights activists and voter fraud hucksters”. The right says voter fraud is real. Indeed, Its practically a tradition in this country to do things the Daley way in Chicago, or the Philadelphia way, or voting control as with Tammany Hall in New York City. The right says we need to verify that each voter is legal and besides it is nonsense not to have to show an ID in this country to vote ... we do it for much less critical activities (such as, cash a check, drive a car, board an airplane, buy medicine, visit a doctor, get government assistance, etc). So, what is the real issue? Voter registration got a lot of attention during the 2008, 2012, 2014 & 2016 election season. We expect it will get a lot of attention before and during the 2018 mid term election season.

Trump Seeks Voter-Fraud Inquiry

1/25/17
from The Wall Street Journal,
1/25/17:

Probe would look at ‘illegals,’ and people who are dead but allegedly still registered to vote.

President Trump said he will ask for a “major investigation into voter fraud,” doubling down on his unsubstantiated allegation that 3 million to 5 million people voted illegally for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

Mr. Trump, in two separate posts on Twitter, said the investigation would look into people who are registered in multiple states, as well as those he said are “illegal” and individuals who have died but are still registered to vote. “I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD,” Mr. Trump wrote. “Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!” Mr. Trump for months has claimed that millions of immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally voted in the presidential election, despite no evidence of this and no support for his claim in research, from Democrats and Republicans in Congress or from a bipartisan group of secretaries of state who oversee the election process.
