Voter fraud is not a problem in our country. For years, the emphasis has been on increasing voter participation so that those who get elected are truly representative of the people.

The new voter law in Pennsylvania requires everyone to have a state voter card. No longer is one's driver's license or Social Security card considered valid identification, even though those are satisfactory for most other transactions. Many people who have voted all their life may be disqualified.
