Provisional Ballots

"In 2000, even before the new federal law, about 100,000 people cast provisional ballots in Ohio under the state's existing procedures, representing about 2 percent of all 4.7 million votes. Ninety-one percent of the ballots were held valid.

Election law specialists said there might be as many as 200,000 provisional votes under the federal law in Ohio alone.

In Florida, there was no provisional voting in 2000. In the 2004 primary, about 2,000 provisional ballots were cast there, and 60 percent were held valid."

So for statewide elections, 9% are fraudulent? In a Democrat primary, 40% are?

How many that are fraudulent don't get caught?

But more rationally, these provisional ballots could only swing an election if it is close, as I suspect any voter fraud would do.

So why are the Democrats fighting so hard to make provisional ballotting so easy?
