Return Trust in the Integrity of the Electoral Process

By: April 15, 2011

I would love to see more books on returning integrity to the electoral process. Instances of cheating at polling places  not only impact the vote directly, they also lead many honest voters to become apathetic about voting,  due to their lack of trust and disdain for the entire electoral  process.

I’ve noticed that over the past several election cycles, many states have reported questionable electoral results. In New Mexico, for example, the requirement to compare driver’s licenses to polling records has  uncovered  illegal aliens who voted in 2010. In Colorado, similar reviews showed that potentially thousands of illegal aliens have voted.

The Democrats never seem to lose close races, and  numerous uncounted votes are magically found in the canvasing and recount procedures. Here in Washington, for instance, many believe the 2004 Gubernatorial election was really won by Dino Rossi. It was a close race, and  in the end Christine Gregoire, the Democrat, was declared the victor, despite multiple recounts and many election improprieties that were attributable to organized labor.

Returning trust and integrity to the election process is key to getting voters back to the polls. How can this be accomplished? True the Vote is one effort to do exactly this. Their website describes their mission:

True the Vote is an initiative developed by citizens for citizens, to inspire and equip volunteers for involvement at every stage of our electoral process and to actively protect the rights of legitimate voters, regardless of their political party affiliation.” “If our elections are not truly fair…we are not truly free.

New e-books on the issue of election integrity can provide a great service by informing all citizens about what to look for in election fraud and how to combat it. We need to make sure each legal vote counts and that illegal votes are thrown out.  By providing e-books on this topic, “Voices of the Tea Party” can help get the Tea Party movement more involved in maintaining the integrity of the polls at all levels.
