Random Thought of the Day
With all the uproar about mail-in ballots and other voting issues, the solution seems pretty simple to me. Every official vote should require your name, social security number, an address (or voting state/county), and where feasible, a picture, all recorded anonymously in a national voting computer system. When you think about it, this would solve every potential fraud issue, as you’d assure:
1. Each voter is a citizen over 18, registered to vote.
2. No one is voting twice.
3. All voters are alive.
4. No one is voting in a district outside their residence.
It be very easy to write programs to cross-check all votes for the entire country to make sure no shenanigans are going on. The pictures could be used with statistical audit models to add even more accuracy. Sure, there would be hiccups when first setting up the system, but most of the information should be easy to pull from the social security administration, DMV, and passport systems, among others. People could login to their own accounts to check the vote is indeed recorded correctly.
I’m guessing this is just one solution of many, but the key to combating fraud is obviously cross-checks and verification. Gee, I wonder what party would fight such a solution? 🤔
