Project Veritas, an activist group that uncovers corruption, has released an explosive new set of videos showing political campaign operatives encouraging voter fraud through absentee voting.
This confirms a fear that a great many Vote Defenders have of people voting in-person in one state but mailing absentee ballots into other states too...thereby voting twice...or maybe even three of four times if they have lived in various states through the years and have old addresses in multiple places.
The media in this country tries pretending this does not happen, but clearly that's what's going on in these videos from Project Veritas. We may never know how often this happens because most states do not coordinate their voter registration rolls to eliminate this method of voter fraud.
We Vote Defenders think it's absurd that in the year 2012 there is no national system to prevent people from voting in multiple states in the same election. We live in an age where a person can check his or her bank balance from a cell phone and even snap pictures of checks and have them deposited electronically without ever having to go to a bank. There is no technological explanation for people being able to vote in person in one state and then submit absentee ballots to vote in other states as well because the same computer systems that secure our banking and update balances down to the penny with high accuracy could be used to make sure that each person in this country only gets one vote in our elections.
"One person, one vote, in one state only" should be the bare minimum of what we need to expect from our elections. And anyone who attempts to circumvent and thwart this needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Period. Exclamation point.
Please look at the new Project Veritas footage and think about how often this could be happening because we don't have systems in place to prevent college students, in particular, from voting in the state in which they're attending school and also submitting absentee ballots wherever they still use their parents' permanent address.
Since presidential elections in particular are often decided by just a few thousand votes the course of American history could be influenced by this particular brand of voter fraud involving absentee ballots.
Can you spend a few minutes today letting your friends, family, and Facebook pals know about this?
