ELECTION: Who will confront fraud?

| April 18, 2010 10:00 PM

Thank you for printing that good article last Sunday about the election problems. I know that the public has not been aware of the voter fraud and the errors in voting during the last election. I have a real problem with the fact that to get fishing license or hunting license you must prove that you’ve been a resident, but to VOTE it’s the honor system.

Why does the county elections department say they are not the “residency police”?  Then who is?  Who will protect us voters and the citizens that choose to run for office? Thank goodness a new law requiring ID when one votes has just been passed by our  State Legislature. (What a novel idea!)

I believe the  county should allow the absentee votes to be reviewed. Why isn’t this being done? WHAT ARE THEY HIDING? Also it has been said by the secretary of state that the county is responsible for the election.  What about the secretary of state and/or the attorney general’s office? What about the county commissioners or the other county officials who signed the contract with the city to run the election? With the proof of fraud and errors in the past election that exists, shouldn’t the county prosecutor file charges? 

Anyone who runs for office should be confident that the election should be run professionally and all voters are legal. Someone in authority should be taking this debacle seriously.
