Recently I saw an article implying that millions of absentee votes were received from deceased voters. Whether or not we take the shouts of voter fraud seriously, there is definitely a need for debate on methods of preventing future fraud. One of the simplest methods of preventing fraud could be fingerprinting. Why not require a fingerprint at the polls, on voter registration cards, and on absentee ballot forms? I'm not saying we should have to include fingerprints on the ballot. Everyone wants to protect their identities, and the 'sacred secrecy' of their vote. I'm saying we should require fingerprints as part of the identification process already required at the polls. I've never voted with an absentee ballot, but I am certain there must be some sort of identification form that must be filed along with the ballot. I'm certain right-wing extremists would scream it's unconstitutional to require fingerprints in order to cast a vote. Bullshit.
