Can you prove widespread voter fraud? It should be easy. Why aren't more cases of voter fraud prosecuted? It's a federal offense. A serious federal offense. And yet while Republicans complain and whine about voter fraud, they never can prove it. Why is that?

PS. The vote and vote often quote. It's attributable to a Republican. (very hush-hush)

the answer SHOULD be no..it should be based on a PRIMARY residence



there has to be a STANDARD
Good point....What if you own a homes in two different states and elections fall in different years,you could vote in both states as you are only voting once in each particular election.

They in fact can vote in their state just has manyother gropus do by mail in baloots. Its really no diffeerent than we require of the militray on people that actually earn their living by traveling. There is a reson for resdience votif whithi the local area that they l;ve in to controltheir own local governamnt which are usaully o the ballots of nay electiob because of cost. There is no reason not to vote even if your not iyour area of residence really.

Why should there be a need to prove it?

I would think just the possibility of voter fraud(which is stealing honest voters say in an election) is enough....

No...if a person goes to college in one state but lives in another the rest of the year your reasons would apply in BOTH states,but the person cannot vote in BOTH states.

Then your issue, as much as you have one, is that of specific residency in a specific State. In your case, Minnesota and Arkansas.

You would have needed to satisfy residency requirements in Minnesota while jettisoning them in Arkansas.

Certainly doable, but as I doubt you remained long in either, I cannot believe it matters.

This is all possible to do in two totally different states....but you don't think the person should be able to vote in both states do you?

And in the case where a person has a choice of what place they consider to be their primary residence, you think the government should make that decision. I thought Republicans were about less government (clearly the idea of redundant laws, though, are supported by Republicans, and more laws doesn't equate to less government by anyone's measure), and I thought Republicans were about less intrusion into people's personal lives. Deciding where someone's primary residence is for them couldn't be more intrusive.

I lived in Minnesota while I attended college. I paid taxes in Minnesota. I didn't have a driver's license. My main identification was an Arkansas ID card. Does the ID card mean I wasn't a resident of Minnesota? I have utility bills and rental receipts that say otherwise. Shouldn't it be up to the person to decide where their primary residence is, what jurisdiction they want to vote in? Does it matter if they have two homes in two jurisdictions and can change their minds if they want?
