    I think I will show up to vote in the test as my dead neighbor and see if they catch me.

    What is the worst that can happen to me? I am comfortable the Democrats will come to my aid and hire the ACLU to defend me. I will get press coverage, TV interviews, and then I will write a book.

    I am sure the electronic system will work fine. This doesn’t do a thing to thwart voter fraud. Correct me if I am wrong!
