A co-worker just told me that a good friend of hers, who lives in Chicago, went to vote this morning. When she tried to vote, she was told she already voted by absentee ballot, from Michigan. The woman has not been to Michigan, and had not voted.
You don't know how it pains me to know and post this. This election is enough of a mess without this kind of thing. We don't need this dragging out because of voter fraud.
I don't understand why the requirement to have ID was so controversial. You need ID to do most things in this country, so why not vote? The election process would be more secure if ID was required.
