A New Jersey Bill that we may want to introduce
Every election year there are always claims of voter fraud – people voting more than once. In New Jersey, they introduced a bill that would require voters to show identity such as a New Jersey driver’s license, New Jersey nondriver’s identification card, or other documents, that includes all of the following criteria: (a) the name of the voter to whom the document was issued, and which conforms to the name under which the voter is registered (b) a photograph of the voter to whom the document was issued; (c) an expiration date that has either not expired or expired only 44 after the date of the most recent election.
Should NYS introduce a similar bill where not only does a voter need to present identification but that identification is scanned into the computer just as a voter is required to sign a computer form when voting in NYS and have that scan hooked up to a national database. This would prevent people from claiming fraud in voting based on a number of factors including voting more than once in different districts and using another’s name to vote.
