4,000 dead voters in Houston?

Very interesting.

"All-in-all, a great person, a great woman, just a wonderful person" is how Alexis Guidry described her mother to Local 2 Investigates.

"As far back as I can remember, they've always voted in the election," Guidry said of her parents.

The March 2008 Primary was no exception. Voting records show Alexis' mom, Gloria Guidry, cast her ballot in person near her South Houston home.

"It was just very shocking, a little unsettling," said Alexis Guidry.

It's unsettling because Gloria Guidry died of cancer 10 months before the March Primary.

Linda Kay Hill, a homemaker and Louisiana native, died Aug. 2, 2006, of a heart attack, her husband recalled, and is buried at Houston Memorial Gardens in Pearland. But Harris County voter records indicate she –- or someone using her identity –- cast a ballot in the November election that year. Linda Hill of Woodwick Street voted in person on Election Day, records show.

Instances of dead voters’ names being used to cast ballots were most frequent in three elections, the November 2004 general election, the November 2006 general election and the March 2008 Democratic primary, the analysis found.

This is starting to sound like Philadelphia!

It just should not be that difficult for a polling place to check registrations against a printed death registry for a state. Fictitous names would be slightly more difficult, like producing a second form of ID, like a driver's license or state ID.
Fwiw, I'm all for the thumb print with indelible ink, and giving notice that ICE agents will be standing by.

The far side of the political opposition has taken their positions through outright theft and fraud. In simple fair elections they would not have a chance. The more moderate among them would certainly still be part of the process.

Take away the second first, and the first is gone in a second.

Isn't it strange that everyone who comes back from the other side to vote votes Socialist - I mean Democrat?
