To Entrenched Leaders in Oregon: Proof of Citizenship is "Designed to Reduce Participation" in Elections.

January 11, 2006


Duh. By illegal voters, anyway.

Oh, so when John Linback, the head of the elections division of the state of Oregon told my audience last week that he couldn’t recommend changes in Oregon’s law, for instance to require proof of citizenship, he was merely saying he wouldn’t DARE suggest the change. Now we see why. In Saturday’s Statesman Journal, Linback’s boss, Secretary of State Bill Bradbury, urged his party faithful to “take a stand against proof of citizenship and other identification requirements ‘designed to reduce participation’ in elections.

He’s right. If you require citizens to prove they’re legally eligible to vote then it would result in a reduction of voters: Non citizens.

What’s wrong with this again?

Tell ’em where you saw it. Http://
