    Why are our states so far behind technology? How is it someone can be dead for years, trailer parks shut down and boarded up, but rolls aren't updated?

    Perhaps because I'm young, and have always had the Internet at my fingertips, but it seems ludicrous to me that we haven't yet streamlined the way our government processes documents.

    It's because we have cut spending to the bone in most states. Somethings have to be chunked overboard. Removing the dead from voting rolls is probably the first thing to get chunked..the dead don't have much of a constituency.

    This is the problem with the "small government" crowd. The same ones who crow 24/7 about this are the same ones who want 1 government employee doing the job of 7.

    Just watch this thread...

    If they do what you suggest, Democrats wouldn't get half the votes they usually get and they couldn't steal elections.

    If someone's issued a death certificate, if a building is rezoned as commercial, or condemned, change of addresses, felony convictions, etc etc. If the state had a streamlined updated system, the voter rolls could update themselves, thus preventing the cursed "voter fraud" as well as freeing up actual people from doing the work a computer could do and do better. Not to mention preventing actual voters from being kicked off the roles in these sweeps many states seem fond of.

    There have been many law suites preventing jurisdictions from perging voter rolls, to what end, you tell me, most of the suites have been filed by the dems.

    I think it's a difference of opinion. Some think its ok to disenfranchise 1,000 citizens if it prevents 1 fraudulent vote, others disagree.

    The only case of which I am aware was in Florida, and that was led by the election commissioner of a Republican precinct. Legitimate voters had been purged from the rolls.

    If legitimate voters are purged from the rolls, don't you think that should be stopped?

    Yeah theres nothing to cut in government....what a crock of shit....Updating rolls should be easy with computers and a proper registration system.....
    I mean you have what 2 years to update them? Not enough time for a government union worker I guess

    and we already have 1 government employee doing the job of 7, look at construction or congress.....
