The right to vote in free and fair elections is one of the fundamental rights underlying the democratic principles of the American republic. Everyone who is eligible to vote should be able to do so, but at the same time, such votes should not be diminished or stolen by fraudulently cast ballots or votes by ineligible individuals such as illegal aliens. What problems exist in the voter registration and election process today? What threat does voter fraud pose to the integrity of voter registration and elections? Are federal laws such as the National Voter Registration Act and the Help America Vote Act sufficient to protect voting rights? What steps can be taken to improve the security of our elections by election officials, legislators, average citizens, and grassroots organizations? Discussing these issues will be a journalist who has written extensively about numerous voter fraud cases, a grassroots activist who has worked to correct election problems at the local level, and a former FEC Commissioner and Justice Department lawyer who has enforced federal voting rights laws.
