Who’s Counting? concludes with a chapter that enumerates reasonable measures state and local governments — and citizens — can take “to safeguard America’s elections and improve the integrity of the process.” These include voter identification laws, “a basic requirement for secure elections” that “should be implemented in all states.” In addition, the authors propose steps to assure that all voters are citizens, to reduce the likelihood of absentee ballot fraud, to provide for robust voter registration databases, and to increase information sharing among states to eliminate duplicate registrations and otherwise keep the lists clean.
In their concluding recommendations, the authors urge that we avoid “any attempt to create artificial barriers to voter participation,” while recognizing that “citizenship requires orderly, clear, and vigorous procedures to ensure that the integrity of our elections is maintained.”
This is an excellent primer on vote fraud and election issues, which I heartily commend to readers on both sides of today’s political divide.
