We need to protect our votes. ID & proof of citizenship should already be a requirement. Maybe new justices are in order. Go Kobach!
"ID & proof of citizenship should already be a requirement. "
They already are so you can quit fretting about it. They have been since 1993 when a uniform Federal law was passed by Congress to make voting requirements standardized across all 50 states. It makes me think you haven't voted in awhile.
cait48: Anyone who registers at the Drivers License Bureau or online is allowed to do so without showing any form of identification or proof of citizenship. Just because there is a "uniform federal law" doesn't mean that it is uniformly followed, as is painfully obvious in the state of Arizona. The fact you don't seem to care whether the laws are followed tells me you don't care whether our country retains its liberty and freedom.
There are 6 (six) counties in Kansas with over 100% voter registration rates based upon the census. Hmmm, sounds fishy to me....
109% of the people in Smith County are registered to vote? That is some serious participation right there.
think_about_it...109% of Smith County are registered to vote...wow! OBTW..is there a link to any credible article supporting this assertion? I googled "Smith County 109%" and didn't get anything close to it to return. Saw a number of other counties...curious that they all have 109%...must be a magical #! So I look forward to the link that you can provide...or are you just regurgitating?
When (D) incumbent Chris Biggs tries to assert "there is no voter fraud in Kansas", he loses all credibility with anyone who is actually living in a state of reality (as opposed to either denial or confusion).
Insofar as voter fraud is LESS PREVALENT here in Kansas than it is in other states like Illinois or those in the greater southwest, well, where is the wisdom in waiting until our problem here is as bad as it already is elsewhere? Isn't that like suggesting we wait until "the horses are out of the barn to slam the door"??
There is one and only one reason for anyone to do anything that promotes or encourages voter fraud, and that is electoral-gains from those would vote illegally. It seems clear, even painfully obvious, which Party stands to gain from such action... the same Party whose Attorney General in DC has issued a memo to state attorneys general that the section of the "Motor Voter Act" that requires purging voter-rolls of convicted felons & the dead will NOT be enforced or prosecuted by the Obama Justice Dept.
If the Democrats' agenda & policies are so truly wonderful for America, let them sell it to Americans ON THE MERITS, and let's leave all the deceit & chicanery out of it!

~DeepWheat "Cogito ergo TEA Party!"
Deep Wheat...got any credible evidence of Secretary Biggs assertion that there is no voter fraud in Kansas? Every quote I could find went something like this...
"Biggs accused Kobach of overstating the problem to win votes. He said that voter fraud hardly ever occurs and that authorities already have tools to prosecute it. Giving the secretary of state law enforcement power would set a dangerous precedent, Biggs said.
“We don’t need a police force inside the SOS office,” said Biggs. Biggs is a former prosecutor and state securities commissioner. He was appointed secretary of state last year after former Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh resigned."

The point is that this is a solution in search of a problem! We could spend billions of dollars and never completely eliminate voter fraud. Do I support voter fraud...not on your life! Voting is too precious to me! Do I want to spend billions of dollars in a futile effort to completely eliminate voter fraud...again, not on your life! We have laws in place to deal with voter fraud...do we really need MORE laws? I can't believe that a Tea Party member (if you truly are one) would want even more laws!
For all practical purposes, there is no voter fraud, either here or in Illinois, or elsewhere. No one, including Kobach, who claims there is EVER manages to come up with any even marginally credible evidence.
But you don't want facts. You just want someone to scare you into believing that it's some mexican bogeyperson who has nothing better to do than vote in elections that half your neighbors can't manage to get off the couch to participate in.
Get a clue, and get a grip.
Kobach is a true patriot, in his free time he defends this country's constitution. While Bigg's free time is spent playing a guitar in local bars. VOTE KOBACH!!!!
In his "free time" (he gets paid for it as a "consultant") Kris Kobach spends his time defying the Federal Government and doing his best to tear up the US Constitution.
Looks like we have a lot of 1st time poster fraud in this comment section.
DeepWheat, you say, "When [snip] Chris Biggs tries to assert "there is no voter fraud in Kansas", he loses all credibility with anyone who is actually living in a state of reality (as opposed to either denial or confusion)."
But your only other post on ljworld says, "Okay, here's the deal about voter fraud in KS. The problem as yet is fairly small in terms of frequency. However, left unchecked, it WILL become an ever-larger problem. "
So you have no credibility?
Denial is not just a river in Egypt, and it isn't DeepWheat who is living in the state of denial. Perhaps you have a plausible explanation for how 6 (six) Kansas counties have reached greater than 100% voter registration based upon their census population?
But nobody is voting there either, so...
Oh yeah! Let's glorify the father of the modern Jim Crow laws!
Kobach wants to close our borders, unhappily I have relatives in both Oklahoma and Nebraska and don't want to prove my citizenship to visit them. I don't have nothing but my birth certificate and that shows my age and isn't accepted as proof by Kobach types. I guess if I join the tea party they will reserarch my bloodlines and determine if I am the type to be considered a real American. Well I hope this gets settled soon, my aunt in Corn Ok is getting old.
I don't live in Kansas, but just voted in this poll. Is that voter fraud?
I'll vouch for you. Vote as many times as you like . . .
THE ONLY REAL FRAUD WOULD BE TO ELECT KOBACH.
spreichen zie deutch ouslander kobach? das ist nich gut... das ist a dumkopf!!!!
kommandant kobach ist an ouslander!!!!!! achtung achtung achtung!!!! dumkopf
The real fraud in this election is Kobach. If Kansans elect him it will only be to realize our mistake in four years, to undue our mistake. Remember Phil Kline?
Why is it a disgrace to elect an honest man? Go Kobach.
Given that his only issue in this campaign is to solve a non-existent problem, he's either a liar or an idiot. So if he really is honest, that means you support an idiot.
