Following last week’s confirmed case of impersonation voter fraud in Rio Arriba County, another case of in-person vote stealing that could have been prevented by voter ID:
A Santa Fe woman is the second documented case of potential voter fraud this election season after she showed up to vote Tuesday at Capshaw Middle School but was told she had already voted. After looking over the signature by her name on the ballot that had already been cast, she and officials determined her vote had been stolen.
Secretary of State Duran has referred the case to prosecutors, but as identifying the fraudsters is nearly impossible, so is prosecuting and convicting these vote-stealers, leaving deniers to maintain that impersonation voter fraud is “non-existent” and voter ID is a “solution in search of a problem.” Meanwhile, fraudulent votes are counted, canceling out legitimate votes.
Voter impersonation fraud is all too easy to commit when no ID is required to vote and “poll workers have no legal ability to confirm a voter’s identification.” Voter ID solution, meet impersonation voter fraud problem.
