Voter Responsibility is an American Characteristic
New research has exposed American voter registration compliance deficiencies which could create identity protection glitches. The Report entitled "Inaccurate, Costly, and Inefficient" has discovered areas for improvement.
Pew Research, a nonpartisan fact tank with a pulse on the attitudes and trends of the American people, giving the world consensus derived of opinion, maintains that American voter integrity requires participation at the level of accurate registering within your precinct, qualified standards for moving or re-locating for accurate portrayal of household, along with verifiable identity guidelines which precisely depict living circumstances per individual citizen's name, in order to correct a glitch in this nation's secure rights. These are the rights of each and every voting-age citizen to the protection of private information and personal identification.
Some of the findings from the Pew study:
- more than 24 percent of the eligible population remains unregistered
- over 2 million voters have active registrations in more than one state
- some records have incorrect addresses, meaning that these voters may have moved after registering
These numbers suggest the need to verify your registration, and correctly submit any changes of record, immediately, so that verification of your identity and your whereabouts can be accurately maintained, and so that your voting eligibility remains authentic.
"Voter registration is the gateway to participating in our democracy," confirms David Becker, director of Election Initiatives at the Pew Center on the States.
