Delegate Rob Bell continues to put the spotlight on stopping voter fraud (from yesterday).
Voter Fraud Update
Hearings have now been set on my bill to require ‘Photo ID – No Excuses’ and other measures.
House Bill 1787 would require voters to present photo ID for voting. House Bill 1788 would additionally require citizenship checks at registration, as are currently required at DMV for a driver’s license. Both bills have been assigned to the Elections Subcommittee, which is currently scheduled to hear the bills on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at 7:30 a.m.
House Bill 1765 would help ensure that felons will be removed from the voter rolls in Virginia. House Bill 1764 would direct the Board of Elections to work with other states to ensure that no voter be registered in two states at the same time. Both bills have been assigned to the Campaign Finance Subcommittee, which is currently scheduled to hear the bills on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.

What Bell is doing is actually highly important. What gives our leaders credibility? Is it not our vote? What would happen without an electorial system in which we have confidence? The titles we give our leaders would mean nothing. Our leaders would “elect” themselves, and they would choose their own honorifics. We would replace an orderly transfer of power with subterfuge and civil war. With each transition of power, we would risk filling our land with war, disease, famine, and death.
