More voter fraud on the way?
Wednesday of this week, LB125 to provide for voter registration on Election Day is scheduled for hearing.
If this bill passes, individuals would be allowed to show up at the polls on Election Day, register and vote. Such a weakening and "streamlining" could make it possible for individuals to vote at how many different polling places in one day. This would provide opportunity for "bus loads of voters" being brought in that we read about in other states who have weakened their voter laws.
Additional language requires that IF the person has not voted in the state before, they are to produce a photo ID, a bill statement, or a paycheck as proof they are legally able to register and vote. A bill statement or paycheck would not provide positive identification or prove residence. Why not require that anyone registering or voting produce a photo identification? I'm a legal citizen, a registered voter and I'm willing to show my ID.
The proposed changes include the removal of the words "registered voter" and replacing them with "elector." Let's remove the confusion and ask the Government, Military and Veteran's Affairs Committee of the Nebraska Legislature to simply "kill the bill" in Committee. If the bill is approved by the Committee and moves to the floor of the Legislature, we will need to contact all Nebraska Senators and ask that they vote against LB125.
I encourage you to contact committee members immediately: Sen. Bill Avery, Chair; Sen. Robert Giese; Sen. Charlie Janssen; Sen. Russ Karpisek; Sen. Rich Pahls; Sen. Pete Pirsch; Sen. Scott Price and Sen. Kate Sullivan. Voice your concerns. Contacting our Sen. Mark Christensen now is important also.
