How to deter voter fraud

If you keep slapping people on the hand with probation, they will continue to commit voter fraud. Probation is not a deterrent.

However, if they get 10 years in prison with no chance for parole (state Rep. Jerry Costello, please note) for any person, man or woman, does not matter.

All of the cases listed on May 9 in the BND are a slap in the face to all veterans no matter when they served America. I, for one, am disgusted by the lack of prosecution by St. Clair County State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly of these individuals who cheat.

After all, 10 years for each absentee ballot they alter will change their minds and attitude; otherwise they will continue to cheat.
