Skip to comments.Democrats propose Internet voting in 2016, making Republican also consider the idea
Posted on 05/10/2014 12:31:49 PM PDT by PoloSec
Democrats are thinking about using Internet balloting in 2016 to expand their voter base and select a president -- prompting Republicans to consider such a strategy to keep from losing ground.
Iowa Democrats proposed the idea and several others during a recent Democratic National Committee meeting, saying Internet balloting could expand access to their unique caucus process to overseas military personnel, absentee voters and others.
I think its a very bad idea, says the Heritage Foundations Hans von Spakovsky, who thinks computer-based voting will never happen, or at least not in the foreseeable future.

What could go wrong?
Not expand their bas but inssure that they can thoroughly corrups the voting procesws in their favor.
Ocean ... and the depth.
Darn it, I want one-day voting, with the same poll hours across all time zones, I want proof of residency requirement; I want voter ID and I want the voter to prove he is a citizen in order to get it. I want the voting age raised back up to 21. I want the voter to be compis mentis; able to read, write and speak English, and to demonstrate basic understanding of how our country works and what he is voting for or against. Is that really too much to ask?
oops, I also want a paper ballot.
Am going to vote 12,000,000 times ... I’ll see a new break!
They are just trying to reduce spending.
It is much more cost effective to manipulate the vote via computer and internet instead of paying actual people for their votes, hiring buses to trundle fraudulent voters from one polling place to another, and paying other people to stuff ballot boxes with bogus votes.
The computer is truly a labor saving device.
And all the servers will run on Windows 3.1.
IMHO, voting by using the Internet, with it’s attendant fraud and hacking problems, is the only way Killary can win and the RATS know it.
Sure, lete’s open another door for MASSIVE vote fraud. What could possibly go wrong?
Not expand their Base, but insurer that they can thoroughly corrupt the voting process in their favor.
Question: When they allow internet voting, I purposely chose when over if because should the Democrats propose it, the republicans will chime right in for it. When internet voting is allowed, When the votes for the Democrat candidate exceed the population of the United States by a wide margin, will it be considered vote fraud?
Can find 12,000,000 dead voters that suddenly changed their votes to Conservative.
The more vote points you acquire, the more achievement points and prizes you can unlock.
The only computer voting I want to see is the Congress voting from their home districts and never receiving another taxpayer dime to travel to Washington.
If there ever was a PERFECT case for telecommuting it is the US congress and senate.
What could possibly go wrong?
This has ** VOTER FRAUD ** written all over it.
So easy to write code to automatically cast votes. Another DemocRAT idea to stuff the ballot box.
Would be fun ... How about some districts vote 200% of those on the rolls? All Conservative, of course. Heck, let’s get it on. 12,000,000 is the low side.
The states and feds have flushed about $1 BILLION of software development down the crapper trying to bring the wonders of commie-medicine to the hoi polloi.
How many more billions could they flush trying to make internet voting work?
Governments are simply INCAPABLE of building functioning systems.
Why don’t they just hand you the ballot for the NEXT election every time you vote? Then you could have a couple years to casually mail it in...or sell it to OFA or some other enterprising tyrannical group.
Not enough, erkelly. Voters must prove they are not sucking the government teat before being allowed to vote. If you’re a parasite mooch, no vote for you. Unless you are retired and are lawfully drawing against the Social Security you paid into for decades.
Careful, big brother is watching :-)
On second thought, just pretend you are a democrat, and you will be fine.
And purple fingers.
How about we repeal XIX as a start?
No, sir! I'm on board with this.
Libs argued during 'Nam that if an 18 could be drafted they should have the right to vote. Fair enough.
We no longer have the draft so the requirement should go back to 21
Voter ID and proof of residency should be the bare minimum.
And we know how secure and private an internet vote would be.
I thought doing what Dems wanted all the time was the DEFINITION of losing ground.
The small town in MA where I used to live, no one could get by those poll watchers without being legit.
Yep. One day vote, same time all zones or a results blackout, paper ballot, national holiday and day off, purple thumb, thumbprint on absentee ballots, voter ID...
Heck, with 12 upstanding people can multiply by 12. 12 X 12,000,000. Can anyone say landslide?
At least you didn’t require voters to be land owners.
[but maybe you should]
If republicans had one iota of common sense they’d oppose it on the grounds of racism.
No one who can’t afford an ID card can afford internet access.
Therefore every asinine idea proposed by the CPUSA to promote even more voter fraud should be countered by proposals to restrict the franchise amongst felons, those receiving federal welfare benefits, those who fail to file income tax forms, register for the selective service etc.
Republican Governors should require ALL residents to re-register and require valid proof of US citizenship before issuing new voter ID cards.
The Founders were vehemently opposed to Universal Suffrage, and there was and continues to be no Right to vote in the Constitution of the United States.
Er wot? No purple fingers?
Computer ownership among the poor and minorities is lower that in the white middle and upper classes so this is of course racist.
Internet voting is stupid idea. We can’t even keep virus’s out from our systems, NSA from spying on us, and all the secret and hidden tracking cookies that we think we disable, but are generally ignored.
ATM voting. Once a year ATM machines are converted to voting machines.
But we can true the vote. I want you to be one of the 12. Only need 11 more. Don't be scared ... Volunteers?
So, if I have 5 computers in my house and three cell phones I can vote 8 times?
I’m looking forward to voting for Democrats on the Internet.
Look what Democratcare websites have done for America. I hope this works doubleplus good.
Yep, let's face it. Only a effing rat could come up with something like this.
Modern Presidential campaigns cost billions of dollars. This would save all that money. The DNC can decide who will be the next President (just like the PRI used to do in Mexico) and then the Internet vote would confirm that, sort of like one of Napoleon's plebiscites.
Without having to bother with meaningless primaries, the mainstream media could devote more air time to topics the public is more interested in, like celebrity gossip.
