September 25, 2014

On Election Day, ordinary citizens are hired and paid as poll workers by the county Boards of Elections (BOEs).  Anyone can apply because there are no educational requirements: reading, writing or mathematics.  However these people are entrusted with the duty to determine:

Who can vote
Where a person can vote
And what type of ballot a voter can cast: regular or provisional

Poll workers receive training from the BOEs but training techniques and poll worker knowledge and integrity are not evaluated by anyone other than the BOEs …

One of the many negative downstream consequences of illegal aliens flooding across the border is the increased possibility of voter fraud. (The Obama Administration is) committed to thwarting any effort by states to protect the integrity of the voting process that would prevent illegal aliens and other ineligible individuals from voting.
