To the editor:
Voter fraud determines democracy - one vote can determine the path a nation will take after the election.
To date, 46 states have prosecuted and convicted cases of voter fraud. More than 24 million voter registrations are invalid, yet they remain on the rolls nationwide. There are more than 1.8 million dead voters still eligible to vote, according to the rolls across the country, and more than 2.75 million Americans are registered to vote in more than one state with many of them voting twice - it has been proven. Many states do not cross check to see if the voter is voting twice.
Maryland uncovered cases of people registering after their respective deaths. What is wrong with this picture?
A woman could be the poster child for voter fraud, as she voted six times, and, worse yet, she was a poll worker. She was convicted of voter fraud and sentenced to five years in prison and only served eight months. She was given a hero's welcome in Cincinnati by none other than Al Sharpton.
What has happened to our honest elections? It seems that we have become another banana republic.
We need to monitor our elections, clean up our roll, remove the names of deceased voters and make people prove they are eligible to vote. With today's technology we can surely accomplish this task.
One vote per legal citizen - that is the American way, voting with honesty and integrity.
