Five Simple Steps for Voting Reform

It's time to get serious about one person, one vote reforms.

Voter fraud is not a conspiracy theory. It’s a fact. The scope of how large the fraud is or how far it reaches may be open for debate, but the fact that it exists is unquestionable. Just visit Project Veritas if you have any doubt.

FYI – You don’t have to like the methods employed by Project Veritas to recognize the results they deliver.

To bring much-needed reform, I suggest five simple steps as a starting point. Some of my ideas will not be popular, but they will absolutely eliminate the possibility of voter fraud.

First, every voter should be required to present two forms of ID when voting; a valid state-issued picture ID and a valid voter registration card/national ID. The voter/national ID would also be tied to a national database that includes biometric information, such as, a retinal scan or fingerprints (or both), along with confirmation of the state ID information and the voter’s Social Security number.

If individual states want to allow their residents to vote in state elections without voter IDs, fine. I think it’s foolhardy, but if that’s what they want, let them. National elections, however, should require a national voter ID because the vote affects the entire United States.

Side Benefit: Done properly, this measure could also help fight illegal immigration and identity theft.

Sure, some critics may consider this first step too close to the biblical Mark of the Beast, but I say, if you believe the Bible, then you believe that’s going to happen anyway, so why not help speed things along. Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

Besides, you don’t have to partake in the system if you fear it’s a sign of allegiance to the Beast. Simply choose the alternative… I know I will.

That said, this first step could take us a long way toward eliminating fraud.

Second, every vote should be cast electronically on election day, and then made available for the voter to view online via a private encryption key similar to Bitcoin blockchain technology. No more early voting, by mail or in person, and no more provisional paper ballots. That way, each voter can be certain their vote was counted (once) as originally cast.

Plus, electronic voting could be done from any location in any state (on election day) by presenting the two forms of ID at any polling station. No more need for absentee votes by mail. Service members or citizens traveling overseas could vote via the Internet (on election day) by using the same voter ID/encryption key and picture ID.

Third, election day should be a state and national holiday to allow voters time to vote – and stress its importance.

Fourth, the Electoral College system needs to be revisited. No state should ever be all-or-nothing for a candidate. States with the all-or-nothing system betray the will of the electorate. The percentage of votes a candidate receives in any state should be reflected in the percentage of electoral college votes the state casts. In addition, the existence of super-delegates needs close scrutiny. The current system is too susceptible to pay-for-play.

Fifth, some, if not all, felons should be given a path to restore their voting rights once their debt to society is paid. The proving period (or probation period) may have to be adjusted to fit the severity of the crime (weighted in light of recidivism statistics), but they shouldn’t be banned from voting forever. If they violate the terms of their proving period, their voting rights would be delayed or revoked accordingly.

Side Benefit: If they have an additional reason for good behavior (like the potential for voting), it may help reduce recidivism. Hey, I can dream…

Again, I know these steps may not be popular, but we need to have candid discussions about real reform. Let’s open the debate to come up with some tangible solutions before our republic is stolen by the corrupt!
