The will of the people, if it to be properly determined has to be done in a manner which leaves no doubt as to the veracity of the election results.
Enter modern elections. Early voting, same day registration, and no identification required have opened our electoral system to widespread vote fraud. wether it is the buying or bullying of votes via corrupt political machines of the past such as Tammany Hall, or modern vote fraud of registering ficticious people from non-existent addresses and then later voting in their names, our electoral system cannot be guaranteed to be safe and accurate.
At a minmum, we need:
- Pre-registration, at least 30 days in advance
- Identification required to vote on election day
- Voting only ON election day or absentee via mail ...
these are the first, sane steps needed to ensure valid and fair elections.
