Archives: voting fraud
We like to think that our voting decisions are at some distance from our personal well being, but that’s not always the case. Accepting money for voting one way when we might have voted the other is abhorrent to many of us, and it’s not the way democracy should work.
Voters at that time did not vote directly for candidates for the U.S. Senate. The race was over who would be elected to the state legislature, which had the power to name the senators from the state. Lincoln lost the election to Douglas not because there was a sudden flood of illegal Irish voters into the electorate but more likely because the incumbent senator began with such a decided advantage in that electoral system.
Voting fraud, and charges thereof, are as old as the Republic, but this year the controversy seems to be centered around the possibility of people who might be “bused in” to vote for President Barack Obama.
