Who won Wisconsin?

We may never know, but it is abundantly clear that there was large-scale voter fraud among the 70,000 who registered on Election Day that could have been the difference. Coupled with the significant fraud that decided the Washington governor's race (we will surely never know who really won that one), it is time to take election reform seriously, and the sooner the better.

Forcing voters to provide photo ID should be a minimum requirement to cast a vote, and proof of residence should certainly be required for registration. Those who benefit from fraud will fight tooth and nail for the status quo, horrified by the prospect of honest elections. They go to some pretty silly lengths, going so far as to say that requiring ID is racist (really, I'm not making that up, as ludicrous as it sounds) and other demagoguery, but it is time for "Vote early and often" to become a thing of the past.

Voter fraud may well have decided the 1960 presidential election, let's make sure that it is not still possible for that to happen by 2008 - contact your state representatives to see what your state is doing about voter verification.
