Lawmaker: Require notarized signatures for early voters

Requiring Arizonans to have their signatures notarized to get on the permanent early ballot list or to receive early ballots would help prevent voter fraud, a state lawmaker contends. Election officials around the state oppose the measure, citing the burden on voters as well as a financial burden on counties.

voter fraud is rare across the country

As long as Grijalva is in office I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever believe this. No matter how stupid someone is, they don’t vote for someone who holds the interests of a foreign government over that of their own.

As the story points out, a record number of provisional ballots were cast in the last election, including my own, due to confusion created by the early voting lists.

I oppose “early voting” (read: “Lazy voting”), except in cases of military service, legitimate medical issues, and great distance to the polling place. I’ll say, again, that if you’re too lazy to get off your dead ass and get to the polls then you don’t want to vote bad enough. I also say, again, that the only people who don’t want to safeguard the integrity of the voting process are those with an ulterior motive (like Grijalva, for example).
