Voter registration databases and vote-tabulation systems are maintained by state and local governments, not by any federal bureau.

The fact is that HAVA-Help America Vote Act gives FREE MONEY to state and local election boards to contract with Friends of Chris Dodd FOD to provide the hardware and software. FOD has more influence over our election system than anything else.
If a state or local election system is vulnerable to hacking by Russians, or by corrupt Americans, it is vulnerable because HAVA contractors are based on politics, not competence. What do people in Bangalore who code the software know about the American election system, let alone about the difference between different counties in the same state? What to non-citiznes who fly back and forth from Conneticut to Bangalore and who design the software know about our election system?
Why is Newsmax so ignorant of reality?
But not illegal voters.
Mandatory free on demand BIOMETRIC (iris scan, nobody ever left their irises at a crime scene!) photo ID, with a database that instantly flags for arrest anyone seeking multiple IDs. Change of name? Simply have your old card voided when you apply for the new one.
No precinct reports their totals until ALL precincts report they have totals. This prevents the last to report precinct captains from knowing how much to fudge a report to give a win to their preferred candidate while maintaining some slight semblance of credibility.
Repeal Motor Voter.
End same-day registration where it exists, and allow ample time between registration and election for vetting of credentials of registrants.
Instantly deport any non-citizen who registers to vote.
Put a little ⩍ next to the names of those registered voters with death certificates, and detain and put a 72 hour psychiatric hold anyone claiming to be a dead person...
Ah - “the Russians”.
Would these be the same Russians that Hillary Clinton sold uranium to, for nuclear weapons?
I hear the Russians are firmly opposed to voter id
So anyone who is colluding with Russia has to be against voter id
And the other 17 (by Obamas count) are taking direct action to stop the sky from falling.
#1 on the list should be: “Wipe out all voter registrations every two years. Make everybody re-register in person.”
They haven’t found a single Russian who voted in the 2016 election.
The poor Russians... Every other country is free to meddle in US elections and they aren’t. It almost seems unfair.
Hmmm, good point.
yup - this is just another way to funnel graft and kickbacks
...plus the U.S. has meddled in other countries’ elections for decades. Isn’t payback fair?
Funny, there was exactly zero “Russian hacking” of any vote machines in the 2016 election.
However, Obama’s feds tried to get into several systems themselves.

The first thing they will do is make it impossible for Conservatives to search for voter fraud in records that are currently open to public.
All voter data must become permanently secret to protect our elections from feckless Russian Trolls!
Or dead ones.
1.) Do you support purging voter rolls of dead people or people who are no longer residents of that state?
2.). Do you support Voter ID?
Democrats and all stripes of Leftists answer NO to both of these. There is your answer.
IT sounds like a plan for the democrats improve their methods of vote fraud.
I thought they caught Ivan Benhadski!
I like it.
