15. Great point. And I'd add as an example it's not something a voter photo ID will fix

The RepubliCONs are talking about all kinds of voter fraud and registration fraud (if they make the distinction from "voter fraud") and then offer as a cure the mandatory voter photo ID. But the photo ID solves only one problem -- voter impersonation -- pretending to be another voter.

Where I vote, Minnesota, I declare my name and address and then I sign the voter roll right next to my name and address. If someone else came before or after me claiming to be me, there would be an obvious something wrong (whoever came later is claiming to be somebody who has already signed in on that name/address). But this NEVER happens as that would lead to prosecution of somebody but nobody has been prosecuted for voter impersonation in Minnesota. Never ever.
