Inflated Voter Rolls In Mississippi And Alabama

By Jessica Taloney Reporter

Published: Mon, October 27, 2008 - 5:04 pm

Jessica Taloney Etah Lowe, 82, is casting a ballot in her 16th presidential election. She first voted in 1948 for Harry Truman.

"They didn't vote then at 18. You had to be 21," says Lowe. "You also had to pay, but I don't remember how much."

Today, Lowe, a proud grandmother, is bringing her granddaughter to vote absentee in her granddaughter's first election.

"I just wanted to think that I contributed something," says Emily Davis.

But, some are worried voters in George County may be contributing too much. According to Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann (R), there are 10% more people registered vote than the number of people 18 and older who actually live in the county. That equals 110% voter registration.

"This is a recipe for voter fraud here," says Hosemann. "It's another reason why we need to have voter ID in our state.
It just gives us so many opportunities for mischief," he says.

I went to the Dollar store the other day.  A sign on the door showed that in order to get a refund for merchandise, a customer had to provide a government issued picture id (drivers lic, state ID, or military ID) and a receipt.

If the Dollar store requires a picture ID, why not require a similar picture ID for voters?

Who know who the real "Mary Smith" is on voting day?  Who knows if she really exists as a person?  Does she have an appropriate ID?

What many people will vote as "Mary Smith" on voting day?

I couldn't agree with your commentary more, Whiskeygirl!
