PWS: A research study by Pew Research has concluded that our current voting system is far more susceptible to fraud than previously thought.
For example, there are 1.8 million dead people registered to vote. Not kidding! That, alone, when strategically placed in battleground states and precincts, is enough to swing an election.
In addition, there are a stunning 24 million voters whose registrations are inaccurate or invalid. That is one in eight registrations inaccurate or invalid!
There are 2.7 million voters registered in multiple states, some of whom vote more than once in the same election, very illegal.
Then, there are illegal immigrant voters, absentee voters, and many other voter/election irregularities that make a compromisable system even more compromisable to the point of massive fraud.
The simplest corrective remedy, in my opinion, is not looking forward to new, gee-whiz, hackable technologies, but rather looking to the past. Old-fashioned paper ballots and voter id. will clear up most of the fraud.
In addition, when counting paper ballots, representatives from both parties should be present to monitor the counting and certify the results at the precinct level, all viewable by citizens via streaming webcams. read more
