    Below is an update to the continuing Republican voter fraud scandal. This story mostly focuses on Florida, but other States are involved, too.

    Besides registering non-existent voters, the records of registered voters are also being altered by Republican operatives. Additionally there's the issue of the purging of legitimate voters from the rolls, following "voter fraud" legislation in over 20 Republican-controlled States. For example, Florida's Republican Governor Rick Scott has been desperate to remove Democrats from the voter rolls, a move opposed by the election officials in virtually all of Florida's counties. Scott is trying to force them despite the obvious partisanship nature, not to mention the illegality of it.

    To check the accuracy of your own voter records, and your current eligibility to vote, go to the second link below.

    When I ran myself through the Can I Vote site, I got this result, confirming my voter information is correct and that I can vote (redacted here for online security):

    Full Name: ROBERT X XXXX
    Street Address: XXXX
    City: WILTON MANORS
    Zip Code: 333XX
    County: BROWARD
    Voter Gender: Male
    Date of Registration: XX/XX/200X
    Party: Florida Democratic Party
    Eligible to Vote: Active*

    The linked site will also list what ID you need to present at US voting polls, where your election poll is located, early election dates if any, absentee voting instructions, how to register to vote, and other useful voting information.

    Interesting that the guys who responded above make no objections to Republicans blocking Democrats from voting, and from creating phony Republican voters for the 2012 US elections.

    But I welcome a chance to bump this thread, and encourage US guys here to use the link I provided to check their voter status, or to register to vote if they haven't already.

    As the comments to the news link state, with such widespread Republican voter fraud this year, it's vital for Democratic voters to turn out in greater numbers to offset these illegal Republican efforts.

    It goes without saying that I am against voter fraud of any kind. That is why I like the idea of having to prove elligibility. Make it completely fair for everyone. Only US citizens, not in jail or mental hospitals, should be permitted to vote. Anyone else is voting themselves perks at the taxpayer's expense. If you're too irresponsible to get yourself a gov't issued ID, too bad.

    Your simplistic model is false. What Republicans have done is close or restrict voter registration locations. And closed them selectively, in areas thought to be favorable to Democrats. There are States where completely eligible voters, US citizens all their lives from birth, have to travel 100 miles or more to get these IDs.

    Travel because they are elderly, or disabled, and don't have driver's licenses. They must find someone to drive them to these sites, which they never had to do before in their lives, despite having voted legally for many decades.

    It isn't just about having a picture ID. Republican State legislatures have imposed other restrictions, which they've made difficult to meet if you're elderly, low income, or lacking in resources. It's the very definition of the Jim Crow laws in the Deep South that were designed to block Blacks from voting.

    The US managed for over 2 centuries to have free elections. Suddenly we must have all kinds of discriminatory laws we never had before that restrict voters. Without anything more than the tiniest number of mostly anecdotal examples of voter fraud occurring.

    And when we now do find massive voter fraud, it's being perpetrated by the same Party that claimed others were doing it. Our democracy is being hijacked by the Republicans, and if you doubt that then you are completely disconnected from reality, and also likely a partisan Republican yourself. icon_razz.gif

    I would avoid putting your SS# and other information into a site that we know very little about. Could be a hacker trap.

    It doesn't ask for your SSN, at least not for Florida residents. I didn't check all the other States, which may have different ways of identifying voters in their data bases.

    Hmm, life is difficult for some people? And aren't there absentee ballots? Should we have hundreds of mobile voter buses across the country for the disadvantaged? How else could we make everything perfect for everyone? Maybe we should have the presdiential candidates visit every person in the country with an entourage of staff to tally the votes? They could bring coffee, tea, and light refreshments!

    They asked for my street number, zip code, and date of birth.
    They said I was registered to vote, but they didn't specify my name.
    I suppose those 3 items would be pretty good at narrowing it down to me.

    Anyway, I live in California.
    Republicans would have a monumental challenge, wasting their time trying to turn California from being dark BLUE.

    Regardless, I think that it's a great idea for everybody to check their registration status.
    It would be extremely maddening to show up at the polls, and be told that you weren't registered, and couldn't vote.

    Indeed, this election year more than others, Republicans are trying to disenfranchise registered Democrats, or persons they think might vote for Democrats.

    I recommend you check your voter status, to see if you can still vote this November.

    Yep, that's why I posted the link and giving this a bump. I'll continue to check my own until the day I vote, which won't be as early this year in my county. Republican judges have so far upheld Republican Governor Rick Scott's curtailment of early voting we enjoyed previously. As for Scott's motives:

    "The upheld law also gets rid of early voting on the Sunday before Election Day, which saw heavy turnout from African Americans in 2008. 33.2 percent of Floridians who voted on that Sunday were black, while 23.6 percent were Hispanic."
