The Importance of Election Integrity

Published: April 18, 2022
Elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. They give us a voice and allow us to choose our leaders. Elections should be fair and secure, with every vote counted accurately. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In recent years, we have seen numerous cases of election fraud, where votes were miscounted or simply not counted at all. This undermines the legitimacy of our democracy and erodes faith in our system. We must take steps to ensure the integrity of our elections. This means ensuring that every vote is counted accurately and that nobody can interfere with the voting process. It also means making it easy for people to vote, without unnecessary obstacles like voter ID requirements.

What is voter fraud, and why is it a problem?

Voter fraud is a problem because it undermines the legitimacy of our democracy. When people can't trust that their vote was counted accurately, they lose faith in the system. This can lead to civic disengagement and decreased participation in future elections. There are many different types of voter fraud, but all of them have the same goal: to influence the outcome of an election by illegitimate means. Some common types of voter fraud include:
  • Casting multiple ballots
  • Voting under someone else's name
  • Tampering with voting machines
  • Buying votes
  • Misrepresenting yourself at the polls
All of these types of fraud can have a serious impact on the results of an election. They can steal votes from legitimate candidates and give an unfair advantage to those who engage in fraud.

What is voter ID, and why is it necessary?

Voter ID laws are a common way of combating voter fraud. These laws require people to show identification before they are allowed to vote. This prevents people from voting under someone else's name, or from casting multiple ballots.

How Can We Prevent Voter Fraud from Happening Again?

There are many ways we can prevent voter fraud from happening again. Some of these steps include:
  • Ensuring that every vote is counted accurately
  • Strengthening election security measures
  • Investigating and prosecuting cases of voter fraud
  • Educating people about the dangers of voter fraud
  • Passing laws that require a Voter ID for every voting individual
Elections should be fair and secure, with every vote counted accurately. We must take steps to ensure the integrity of our elections, and make it easy for people to vote without unnecessary obstacles.

There are 30 million Christians in the United States who don't use their voice to change policy. But your voice does matter. Especially when a million of us speak at once to those that have the power to change things — the policymakers in this country. And the policymakers have told us the number one thing that changes their position regarding issues is when a constituent from their district mails them a signed note.
