Would everyone using a mail-in ballot solve the problem of the voting more than once controversy?
This is the first year Colorado will use an all mail-in voter ballot for a presidential race a result of 2013 legislation. This election the ballots went out Oct. 7. Oregon and Washington use this system too while Calif. is heading that direction with new legislation this year. One article pointed out there is greater balloting because of this mainly because of its convenience.
While I really don't think double-voting is that big an issue, I fully support mail-in balloting. Since we shifted to it here in WA, it's been great. I always went down to vote proudly, but I think some people are shy, the weather is usually awful in November and mail in balloting gives folks time to study the issues. Makes for smarter voters. So an unequivocal yes.
It would reduce people voting more than once but not prevent:
* Democrats from intercepting ballots and filling in D regardless of what the voter wants
* voting for dead people registered at addresses they control
* shredding mail in ballots from mostly conservative overseas military
* reviewing ballots and shredding those that say R
* submitting fake ballots that are tied to bogus names
* illegal aliens and legal residents requesting and receiving ballots they cannot legally cast

Now that President Obama has won a second term I can breathe a bit better. But I've got to say I'm deeply disturbed by the rampant voter disenfranchisement that continues even as I write this.Pennsylvania, Ohio, and more glaringly Florida are all accused, rightly so it seems, of trying to skew the...

Obama has actually contributed more to the increase of guns than any other president. Sales have increased an average of 8% per year since he has been in office, which has made the NRA's job a lot easier. I imagine gun makers will make donations to Hillary Clinton instead of Jeb Bush in 2016.

While a 28th Amendment stating that corporations are not people and money is not speech would be ideal - how about compulsory voting? What if we used the carrot approach - say increasing tax-credits for voting in primary, mid-term/off-year, and local elections? The more active the...
