This morning, someone asked one of us Vote Defenders what was the best thing she could do as an individual to combat voter fraud and we told her "get informed, stay informed, and inform others". Dust off the library card or head over to Amazon.com and see if you can find any of these books for a good price (used copies will be around $5 or so for most of these, sometimes a little less); you can also probably find a lot of these in used book stores if they carry a decent selection of public policy works:
Who's Counting -- by John Fund and Hans von Sparkovsky
Deliver the Vote -- by Tracy Campbell
Stealing Elections -- by John Fund
Steal This Vote -- by Andrew Gumbel
How to Rig an Election -- by Allen Raymond
Proving Election Fraud -- by Richard Charnin
Stealing Democracy -- by Spencer Overton
Loser Take All -- by Mark Crispin Miller
This is a good start for building up a reading list of books on voter fraud. Some of these are better than others, but you'll find that out for yourself, and some slant toward one partisan camp or the other. We think it's important to read pretty much everything out there on voter fraud and to make up our own minds, of course keeping in mind the authors' individual biases. Both parties contribute to voter fraud in some way and the "bad guys" involved don't always have a (D) or an (R) after their names. That's surprising to a lot of people, but if you read a lot on the subject you'll see that depending on the year, the issues on the ballot, and the power plays involved voter fraud can be encouraged and abetting by many different camps.
There would not be so many books on this topic if, according to the media, this was something that really never happened. It is a very complicated issue affecting all of us that unfortunately not a lot of people dedicate themselves to reading about.
Maybe we should start a Vote Defenders book club and review these books and note any particular bias in them while charting common threads and themes?
Let us know if you'd like to see that, or even participate in the reviewing!
