[Update] The Daily Caller reports the NH AG is "probing the state’s voting procedures," in response to the video below.
Go read that...I'd like to say that I am confident that change will come from this development. I'd like to.
Earlier story follows. *
Where I live, if you want to vote in any level of elections, you have to produce voter ID to prove that you are a) eligible to vote and b) that you are registered to vote. In order to do that, you have to produce legitimate identification. This has been so for as long as I remember.
I have watched with interest the debate in the US about whether demanding ID before a person can mark a ballot, and participate in the democratic process, is too demanding for Americans. No definitive policy seems to have been decided
With official election season now underway in the US, again the topic of voters needing to provide their ID in order to vote, and the possibility of voter fraud has been raised.
Then yesterday over at Wake Up America, I found this post:

The video below shows how easily it is to commit voter fraud when a voter is not required to show identification.
Description:On January 10th, Project Veritas reporters walked into New Hampshire Polling Locations during the Presidential Primaries, saying dead people's names. We stated the name of a dead person we got from the NH obituaries. The names of the deceased were both Registered Republican and Democrats And in almost every case, saying a dead person's name, we were handed a ballot to cast a vote. We used no misrepresentation and no false pretenses. in fact, in almost every case, we insisted we show ID and they insisted that we vote without showing ID.
H/T The Daily Caller.
Democrats and liberals argue against voter ID laws.
Indeed! And it is just that easy for dead people to vote, folks.
As Susan said to me in the comments of that post:
I don't know about any of you, but for me, voting for our elected representatives is such an important duty, and such an essential part of a democracy, that being asked to produce valid ID should be a requirement. After all, we wouldn't want there to be any question that someone claiming public office was fraudulently elected, would we?
No ID, no vote. That simple.
Get on it, America.
