”There is no question about legitimacy or importance of a state’s interest in counting only eligible voters.”
Ruth Bendl and Jeff Kropf Discuss Voter ID in Oregon
Did You Know?
- Ballots are mailed to Oregon registrants who don’t provide valid proof of identity, despite the passage of the 2006 federal law, Help America Vote Act (HAVA), that requires proof of identification to legally vote.
- HAVA non-compliant voters cannot vote for federal offices, but are still eligible to vote for state and local candidates. State and local elections should receive the same protection as federal elections.
- Immigration fraud is facilitated by allowing voter registrants to receive official Voter Identity Cards without proof of identification.
