Thank you for Eugene Robinson’s Sept. 6 column, “Voter ID laws’ purpose is now clear — and shameful.” While reading it, the thought occurred that if Republicans are really concerned about fraud in our election, they should be addressing the problems with electronic paperless voting.
NPR recently had a report on the vulnerabilities of the obsolete Windows 2000 voting systems to hackers (especially foreign ones). There is no way to have a valid recount since the vote is recorded electronically with no “paper trail.” Twelve states have electronic voting and some of them have ignored this true danger to past politically motivated, voter ID laws.
This attitude of suppressing fellow citizens voting to gain politically instead of really dealing with the problems is one of the reasons for me to vote Democratic. I used to vote independent, but after the last eight years of Republican interest above national interest, I’ve changed.
P.S. I enjoy all of your columnists. Thank you for them.
