When I go to vote, they ask for my name and address (and for the past few years my ID). Then they check it off on a master list of voters.
The reason I could never understand all this fraud stuff is because what you said above, Here in Arizona, we have done exactly what you say above and long before we started using the electronic readers. We still have a paper ballot (I assume) Since we have been on permanent early voting rolls since we voted against Obama the first time. I know the ones we get are paper and exactly what we used to have.
The problem is there are SO MANY places where fraud can happen.
Here are just a few:
1. People voting multiple times in different places.
2. People voting who are not eligible.
3. People voting for someone else. (This is one of the few that ID helps to combat.)
4. Ballots destroyed.
5. Ballots manufactured out of thin air. (Pre-made ballots for D candidate ready to deploy as needed.)
6. Ballot Counting fraud. (Human or machine)
7. Count reporting fraud. (Human or machine)
8. Count transmission fraud (human or machine)
9. Vote count aggregation fraud. (Human or machine)
10. Gerrymandering. (not “technically” fraud, but we all know how that works)
11. Census fraud. This is, IMO a HUGE one and often overlooked. The last census was done under 0vomit and could have given big D states even more electoral votes than they should have had.
