  1. I’m a big fan of the 10th amendment; states rights. However I think it is fair and necessary for the federal government to create federal voting standards. The abuses are too great to ignore and I think minimal standards would not violate any states rights.

    Such as:

    * Voters must be registered before voting.

    * Voters must prove citizenship with ID, birth certificate, or SS card. States do not have the right to represent the will of non-citizens.

    * All ballots must be serialized. Election day ballots do not have to be recorded to the individual voter, but early voting and absentee voting MUST be to avoid fraud and abuse.

    * All ballots must be accounted for; used, not used, destroyed, which precinct they were sent to, etc.

    * All votes must be registered on paper. It can be initiated by machine, but the official record must be a paper ballot.

    * Local precincts must count their own votes and must post their results online. (this allows people to double check the state election commission’s results and allows precincts to verify they are properly represented in the end)

    * All parties that made it on the ballot have the right to observe all counting with 1 person in each precinct.

    * Counting machines must be able to collate based on the vote. In other words, if you want to look at the presidential election, you can set the machine to create a different stack for each candidate as it counts. Then you can quickly flip through each stack to look for anomalies and just quickly look at stack sizes to make sure they match reality. This allows for quick and easy transparency and sanity checks.

    * STRICT chain of custody controls must be maintained. Blatant abuse or negligence negates those votes. Yes voters may get disenfranchised, but they’d be motivated to replace their incompetent government employees.

    The rest can be determined on a state by state basis.
