    I read in another forum that in WA voting is by mail only. A quick search seems to confirm this.

    I don't like this. Too much potential for voter fraud. I feel the same way about absentee voting... it should require a good reason.

    Are their other states that do this voting by mail only?

    and also on all of are state races in the primary season its open primary so you can have 10 canidates running for a position with all the different parties and multiple people for the same party but they take the top two vote getters for the final. Unfortunately it usually is the D and R but sometimes its 2 D's or 2 R's running against each other. Harder for a third party I think.

    That may explain why the west coast is blue.

    I have to believe there is a lot of voter fraud going on with ballots that come and go in the mail.

    People filling out other people's ballots. Maybe exchange a six pack for a ballot, or selling their ballot?

    Typical ACORN crap.

    Yeah it is messed up. I would prefer going back to having to go to a polling place and adding in showing ID.

    We are the state that voted in a republican governor, but the dems kept recounting till they tipped the scales, by some margin like 132 votes.

    How do you know what is going on with the ballots?

    I suppose you don't believe that food stamps would get sold on the street for pennies on the dollar. Anything of value can be sold.

    That's the way it should be, with exceptions for valid reasons.

    People were just voting by mail. No one went to the polls that is I suspect why whey did it in WA. Voter fraud is a far bigger problem then voters I suspect realize. The 2 parties have no interest in really looking into it hard as it would reflect badly on the whole. In WA you can get a drivers License without a birth certificate. I don't know if that is true of other states.

    It's motor-voter here and no vote is counted until it is matched with a signature. That's more 'proof' of ID than going to the polls and voting!

    It wouldn't be if we had a photo ID requirement.

    Can one not sign their ballot without filling it out, and then hand it over to someone else?

    Voter fraud is the ultimate redundant statement in Washington. There is no way that a republican can win, because the dead all vote democrat, and their turnout rate is a lot better than the living.

    I have received many ballots in the mail with incorrect names.

    Yes, multiple ballots every year.

    They pulled the information from multiple sources (beyond the DMV). I can tell, because I actually remember what organizations I gave specific fake names to when signing up for services.

    Voting: it's rigged.

    Our current Governor lost the election, then lost the recount once or twice, then they miraculously "found" a box of uncounted ballot under a desk or in the trunk of a car or something like that, and gosh darn if 90% of those ballots weren't for the democrat. . . .

    With all the rampant voter fraud going on, where's the legal investigations into it?

    If it's so blatant and obvious, SOMEONE had to notice, right? I mean, someone without tinfoil headgear? Because the Right does have lawyers, too, and I don't seem to recall the breaking news about this.

    Unless they're in on the gig, getting their kick-backs, too. I mean, the level of conspiracy to maintain such a high level of fraud must be astonishing....
