Nope, no voter fraud here. Carry on.

"The errant mailings from the Washington-based nonprofit group Voter Participation Center have befuddled many Virginia residents, leading to hundreds of complaints.

The organization has been mass-mailing the forms — pre-populated with key information such as names and addresses — to primarily Democratic-leaning voting blocs such as young adults, unmarried women, African-Americans and Latinos."

Ah yes, a time-honored Liberal tradition. It sure helped Oblamer get to the Senate and then WH.

This isn't voter fraud. It's lazy, sloppy registration. And again, something that ID requirements would fail to remedy.

If dead people, children or the family dog gets registered to vote requiring an ID won't stop them from voting!!!! Lay off the crack pipe man, it has fried your brain.

If your dog is sent a voter registration card, YOU fill out that registration card for your dog, send it off and get a voter registration card in the mail which allows your dog to cast a legal vote, what is to stop you from voting in your dogs place?

The article seems to suggest that the non-profit org is sending out voter registration forms to people in the hopes that they register to vote. They are likely working off some sort of list that they purchased. Since people die, and can perhaps exist at an age that is less than the voting requirement, it isn't unreasonable to assume that dead people and kids could end up on whatever list they purchased. I suspect that were a child or dead person to submit a voter registration form, they may run into some problems.

For the open minded who may read this thread, take a look at this article. The so called arguments in favor of requiring a voter ID are not based in fact. Voter impersonation is extremely rare (you're more likely to get struck by lightning than to commit voter fraud). The real reason for this sudden and unfounded push for voter ID is voter suppression of groups likely to vote Democratic.
Summary

* Fraud by individual voters is both irrational and extremely rare.
* Many vivid anecdotes of purported voter fraud have been proven false or do not demonstrate fraud.
* Voter fraud is often conflated with other forms of election misconduct.
* Raising the unsubstantiated specter of mass voter fraud suits a particular policy agenda.
* Claims of voter fraud should be carefully tested before they become the basis for action.

Fraud by individual voters is both irrational and extremely rare. Most citizens who take the time to vote offer their legitimate signatures and sworn oaths with the gravitas that this hard-won civic right deserves. Even for the few who view voting merely as a means to an end, however, voter fraud is a singularly foolish way to attempt to win an election. Each act of voter fraud risks five years in prison and a $10,000 fine - but yields at most one incremental vote. The single vote is simply not worth the price.

Because voter fraud is essentially irrational, it is not surprising that no credible evidence suggests a voter fraud epidemic. There is no documented wave or trend of individuals voting multiple times, voting as someone else, or voting despite knowing that they are ineligible. Indeed, evidence from the microscopically scrutinized 2004 gubernatorial election in Washington State actually reveals just the opposite: though voter fraud does happen, it happens approximately 0.0009% of the time. The similarly closely-analyzed 2004 election in Ohio revealed a voter fraud rate of 0.00004%. National Weather Service data shows that Americans are struck and killed by lightning about as often.

All statistics that show incidences of voter fraud to be minuscule at best aside, which do you feel has more of an impact on the outcome of an election: 1) I go to a poll and cast 1 vote by impersonating someone. 2) I donate millions of dollars to a super pac?

There is always hoopla about election fraud before the vote takes place. Repubs accuse Dems of getting illegals and dead folks registered to boost the vote for their side; Dems accuse Repubs of doing things like altering Diebold voting machines (think Ohio in 2004). It never ends.

Progressives, IF voter fraud is so rare, why does ACORN (aka whoever they are today) go to so much trouble to register fraudulent people?

IF I had a list of 1,000 people who are fraudulently registered to vote. Progressives, are you still with me? Then I take that list and go on-line, or pick up the telephone and order an absentee ballot in each persons name. Still with me Progressives? 1,000 absentee ballots come in the mail. I fill out 1,000 ballots, sign the back of the envelopes and mail them back over a period of a couple of weeks.

How many fraudulent ballots are counted and who knows?

Where are you going to find a list of 1,000 people who are fraudulently registered to vote? Are you just going to make up names and SS numbers and drivers' license numbers and street addresses? Do you have any evidence whatsoever of something like this actually happening? Your story starts out with a pretty good word: IF
