Voting is neither easy or hard. It is what it is. A photo ID is needed to apply for welfare, food stamps, social security. You need one to get married. Buy a car, get a library card. Why not for something as important as voting? You have a photo ID, you show it ,its checked, you vote.

The right to vote is one of our most sacred rights. It should not be desecrated by cheating and fraud. The Democrats want illegals to vote and they want dead people to vote, because that is how they “win” elections. Please help us stop this attempt to destroy our electoral process.

I disagree. It's not just a right, it's a responsibility. It's easy now, but still requires some effort ... not even all that much. The Dems would prefer it to be a mindless charade.

This is the reason the Evil Left paid the Chinese to develop, clone and spread the Covid19. Sure, the EL is thrilled to wreck the economy and devastate the livelihoods, hopes, and dreams of ordinary, decent working Americans. But the REAL payoff is forcing a new, improved, guaranteed way to steal the 2020 election. We must call it 'Cheat By Mail'.

I am an absentee voter, not because of any physical limitation, but because I am also a confidential voter That means that you cannot research my home address through the Registrar of Voters or the Secretary of State. It is the consequence of having served a career in a position where a few nuts might still like to contact me. I have never discerned that voting absentee is any more likely to be compromised through fraud. What is worrisome, however, is "vote harvesting," which allows helpful bundlers, say from a local labor union, to collect my ballot along with many others for delivery (I hope) to the County registrar. Vote harvesters have proven so helpful that some are also angelic advisers who will assist the voter in marking the ballot. That may be especially welcome at senior assisted living centers. People who want to "harvest" votes are not community service organizations, such as the Rotarians or volunteers from the food bank. They are invariably Democratic activists with more than a passing interest in how the vote turns out. That is why Democrats continue to come up with helpful schemes to make voting ever easier. Given their zeal and a potential majority of Congress, maybe someday they will legislate an oral ballot. We need only tell them our picks for office and the harvesters will take care of delivering the message.

Voting is not difficult at all. People who want to vote, will. Of course, the Democrats are more worried about the outcome of the spying that went on in the previous administration, and is being uncovered despite massive resistance and a compliant media who want to ignore. It's the main reason they say Trump is X,Y, and Z - they simply can't allow people to know what happened and to the extent it happened. Now, if they want to have easy registration, they also need to ensure it's all linked to massive data bases that cross county and state lines. Includes death certificates (and immediate removal), along with prison records, institutional records(dementia and alzheimer's patients should be removed), and I wouldn't mind if it included some sort of biometric - fingerprint, that needed to be provided too. If any mail-in voting, it should also include return receipt to the person on record of voter registration -- how many will be surprised to see they voted?

After the Marxist Communist democrats get complete control there will be no further need to allow anyone to vote. The need for useful / useless imbeciles will be over. Just the elite political leadership will vote like in all Communist countries. Actually our constitution will be voided and burned up to show their true disdain for the people's rights given by God.

Not only should voting NOT be made easier, it should be made as secure as possible. For one thing, a nationwide purge of the voter rolls should take place immediately. Every legal citizen should be required to reregister in their place of legal residency. Same day paper voting only, NO computers that can change your vote. Each voter should be issued a federal photo voter ID card with a designated surrogate listed who can deliver an absentee ballot if the voter is elderly, shut-in, disabled or out-of-town. If presenting an absentee ballot, that surrogate must also present photo ID and sign for the absentee voter. As for the federal photo ID, in order to get one, proof of citizenship and legal residency must be presented. This should include a birth certificate or passport. I would mention driver's licenses, but leftists have given out so many to illegal alien invaders that they are meaningless as proof of citizenship. They can, however, be used for proof of legal residency, so long as the information is corroborated by the state DMV or NCIC. Should anyone say that they don't have a photo ID, they need only call their local city clerk and make an appointment for a visit from a mobile van that will not only provide them with a free photo ID, but will also register them to vote and provide them with a Federal voter ID. Registration closes 30 days before a national election, no excuses. For those in nursing homes, rehab hospitals or other forms of group residency, ballots may only be retrieved by an official designee from the city clerk or voter registration office. Only the voter's legal surrogate is allowed to help them fill out their ballot. The person retrieving the ballots is not permitted to do so to avoid any whiff of impropriety. The gathered ballots must also be fully accounted for and returned to the city clerk's office prior to gathering ballots at another facility. Only official city vehicles may be used for this business. No private vehicles are allowed.

They know this is how they win. How do you think Evers won in Wisconsin? The latest election in Wisconsin with Daniel Kelly and Jill Karopsky was won with early voting. This is how they are able to bring in those 3-4 bags of votes at the midnight hour. I give no credibility to Tony Evers or his VP Barnes. I acknowledge them but if you think it was election without fraud, not happening.

You sure she didn't say as easy as possible to vote twice? I've been registered in CA for over 30 years, and renewing my drivers license online still tried to force me to register. It was only after it required me to enter all the info for voter registration that I was offered, in slightly smaller print, the option to say I don't want to register. Frustrating and fishy.
