IF YOU LIVE IN ONE OF THESE STATES, YOU DON’T HAVE REQUIRED PHOTO VOTER ID BUT YOU DO HAVE EITHER A REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR OR SECRETARY OF STATE–BOTH HAVE A LOT OF POWER OVER VOTING IN THEIR STATES. PLEASE SEND THIS LETTER AND PASS IT ON TO GET THE BALL ROLLING FOR REQUIRED PHOTO VOTER ID AND OTHER VOTING REFORMS (You may also want to send it to your representatives to fight the upcoming bill on automatic registration as outlined below). For obvious reasons, I am assuming Democrat governors would not want to have Required Photo Voter ID but send it to yours if you would like:
Dear Governor and Secretary of State:
I am writing to bring to your attention that Required Photo Voter ID, secured voting machines, and properly screening voters for eligibility protects the voting rights of every citizen in your state.
I would like to point out that there is a difference among the various forms of voter eligibility screening:
METHODS OF VOTER ID
–Required Photo Voter ID
–Requested Photo Voter ID
–No Voter ID
Your state does not have Required Photo Voter ID. A map of all of the states with the various forms of Voter ID (or not) can be found here.
Obama lost in every state with Photo Voter ID.
VOTER MACHINE INTEGRITY
Did you also know of the rampant fraud that took place in several previous elections regarding software voting machines?
Many states struggle with voting software tampering. It was widely thought, for instance, that the 2010 re-election of Harry Reid in Nevada was due to software tampering when the votes changed from Sharron Angle to Harry Reid via voter screens. A more recent example of this can be found here. The solution to this is to eliminate the software and go back to the ballot machines or to do extensive software auditing in each state.
Fraud that can take place when voters are NOT accurately screened for eligibility before they register to vote.
A bill (Voter Empowerment Act of 2013–H.R. 12) is in Congress right now to register every voter based on motor vehicle records, public assistance information and other sources unless a person specifically refuses to be registered. The legislation would also likely include a federal mandate to allow same-day voter registration and extend the franchise to convicted felons. As you can imagine with the endless possibilities for fraud via internet, this bill would end the integrity of the voting process.
We have an urgent danger in our country of losing votes from legitimate citizens and from illegitimate votes turning the results of an election.
My request to you is threefold:
1.) Work to install a REQUIRED PHOTO VOTER ID law in your state.
2.) Require that your state return to a voting ballot machine or require a complete audit of all of your voting software.
3.) Work to eliminate the possibility for internet registration in your state.
