It is absolutely essential for elections to have integrity for our form of government to work. This is not the old Soviet Union where the joke was made that, “someone broke into the Kremlin and stole the results of the next election.” This is the United States, where the free vote with accurate and honest counting is not only to be expected, but is essential.
Unfortunately, this is not the universal experience. Chicago has been the butt of jokes about holding crooked elections for decades. And that's not the only place where the validity of the vote counts are in question. California, with all of its illegal migrants, was accused of being a rich source of voter fraud in this past election.
We can also add another state to the list of jurisdictions where the integrity of the vote is in question. See page two.
