That is impossible. It's not like there would ever be a situation where someone would leave town, or be otherwise incapacitated and that information somehow got out right?
You are not this stupid. Stop insulting everyone's intelligence.
Got out to who? How? And how do you know they haven't voted absentee?
And are you suggesting this is possible on some sort of large scale?
Of course it is possible. Is it likely happening on a large scale? I suppose that would depend on what your definition of "large" is. Regardless, in this day and age why allow such a clear potential security breach to exist? Why allow something of such vital importance to be so grossly unprotected? With our technology today it would be fairly easy to keep a person's picture on file. Heck you could just tie the databases at the polling places in with the DOT (which now has all of our information picture and all on file) databases and you wouldn't even have to bring an ID with you. Provided you had one on file they could just access it.
But what you are arguing is not just. You are claiming that because "proof" of what you deem to be "large scale" voter fraud doesn't exist that's ok to continue with this ridiculously archaic method. And you keep repeating the same crap over and over again all the while completely ignoring the obvious fact that you have to show your ID to get a fricking library card. In fact you have to show your ID to do just about frickin anything these days. You'd think when you show up to weigh in on who the leaders of our government are going to be that you'd have to show it then too. Afterall it is kind of a big thing wouldn't you say? Your argument is kind of like saying you can't lock the door to your house because you need to be able to let anyone in that wishes to enter.
