Rubin's alleged voter fraud was foiled when she arrived at the second location, only to be confronted by a poll worker who conducted a routine database check and found she had already voted. Rubin denied this and argued that the database used by the poll worker was incorrect.

My guess is that this woman is a RW media junkie who's convinced herself that A) This type of thing happens all the time cos it's "so easy" according to many RW sources and that B) Dems are gonna do it a lot this election and it's up to her and other right thinking good Real AmericansTM to counter the evil libs wrongdoing by any means necessary.

See, there's a point at which living in a little bubble of unreality stops being mildly amusing and goes deep into the land of the unwell.

This woman has gone past that point.

No it's not.

The false threat of there being thousands and thousands of people like her is why we can't have easy voting.

...and now she'll get a suspended jail sentence and a hefty fine for her trouble, and she'll never, ever do it again.

Which is why people by and large don't commit voter fraud, ID laws or no. The payoff simply isn't worth the price of getting caught. Yes, in any given population of some millions of voters, some idiots will do it, but a significant percentage get caught and there's just no reason to believe more are doing it. Multiplying your vote by 2, 3, or 100 isn't going to affect the overall vote in the slightest, and even the dumbest voters usually know that.

/ plus, voting at all is a pain in the ass.

Silly woman, freeping polls doesn't work in real life. Leave the vote fraud to the experts: Republican "elected" officials and voting machine manufacturers.

Over 100 people say they were duped into registering as Republicans In Riverside County, California after they were approached to sign petitions for legalizing pot.

Colin Small, a former employee of Strategic Allied Consulting, a contractor for the Republican Party of Virginia, is charged with tossing completed Democrat voter registration forms into a recycling bin. State authorities are seeking to learn whether any of Small's supervisors instructed him or any of his 40 co-workers in Virginia to ask potential voters about their political leanings during registration drives, the two sources said. Asking such questions could be a violation of state election law. Mitt Romney's campaign paid the firm $71,000 last year for "field consulting."

The GOP has supported a company run by Nathan Sproul and now charged with filing suspicious registration applications in 10 Florida counties. Sproul, a Republican operative, has long been trailed by allegations of voter fraud.

And in Colorado Link this young woman was videoed registering voters in El Paso County, Colorado and admitted to trying to only register voters who support Mitt Romney. She is confirmed to be a former contract employee of Strategic Allied Consulting -- the firm run by longtime GOP consultant Nathan Sproul.

Republicans have attempted to create an hysteria about voter fraud as their excuse to disenfranchise Democratic voters. Having raised the alarm it looks like many of them will be serving time. The frequency of allegations coupled with candidate Mitt Romney's habitual lying "would seem to suggest something more than the isolated acts of a few bad apples."

Isn't financial gain the whole idea behind voting?

Voter ID theft doesn't seem very difficult in Nevada. Just give a name, get a card, and vote. It's not hard to imagine someone voting earlier under this woman's name. Her reaction is perfectly consistent with such a surprise.

Really? I find that hard to believe. Over the years, I've voted in several States and it's never been as easy as just giving a name.

The very least I've been required to give has been an exact name, an exact address and an exact birth date.

Is it all that hard to get that kind of info on a voter? Not really. Seems like kind of a hassle for one count of vote fraud. Plus, the "imposter" would also have to know to a near certainty that the real voter hadn't yet voted...or, the imposter would have been the one in the pokey.

Also, is it just coincidence that "both" Roxanne Rubins ended up voting on the same day at different locations and different times, but the "imposter" is the one who just happened to vote first?

Or it could be consistent with someone getting caught, deny it. While on tv people breakdown and admit when they are caught doing something in real life the first thing people do is deny they did anything wrong. Catch a 4 year old with their hand in a cookie jar and what is the first thing they do deny it.
I think your point is she is saying she didn't do it so here is a reason why she didn't.

An imposter would have just walked away if challenged. How would the imposter be found? She wouldn't insist that she had not voted yet. But that's exactly what you'd expect from the real Roxanne.

Yes, it's a bit of trouble and a small risk to impersonate a Nevada voter. The same is true of shoplifting, and that happens all the time.

A relative, friend, coworker, or any of several kinds of business associates would have Roxanne's name, address, and birth date.

The government has the burden to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Roxanne voted earlier in the day. I see lots of grounds for reasonable doubt in this case. If no strong ID was checked, I wouldn't vote to convict.

Wow talk about one sided , it was proven1 that thousands of blacks voted 2 to 100 times for Obama and Acorn allowed it2. I did not see one Obama supporter that abused the voting system arrested. WHY! I do not agree with voter fraud but why arrest one white woman when hundreds of blacks if not thousands done voter fraud in 2008 and none of them were arrested3. So you make an example out of a white woman. TALK ABOUT RACIST ONE SIDED LAWS. The law is on the side of Obama supporters is what has been proven here.
1 How the hell was it "proven" than anyone voted for Obama 2 to 100 times? And, how does she know they were black?
2 How the hell can ACORN have "allowed" voters to vote multiple times? ACORN had nothing to do with poll administration.
3 I see the Fox/Drudge/Breitbart campaign to promote white resentment has worked with at least one person.

Why would a criminal take time to vote under a false id? These jokers don't tend to be the most civil minded individuals. Hell, if I stole an ID the last thing I would do is vote under it. Taking out boat loans and signing up for credit cards is a much better use of their time.

It fits right in with the right's MO of self-fulfilling prophecies. Get elected projecting budgetary doom, pass laws and start hobby wars to create budgetary doom. Get elected screaming about unemployment, create tax incentives and subsidies for offshoring, generating unemployment. And so on. They will do their best to create the voting problems that will let them justify their anti-democratic attacks on the voting system.

Actually, there's video at each polling place, even the ones in the malls and supermarkets. When I went to vote early, there were signs that said we were being recorded but not in the voting area. It wouldn't take much to pull up the video of her at both locations.

And to be perfectly honest, Henderson, Nevada is the Florida of Nevada. It's full of right-wing rednecks and racists. I cannot even tell you how many stars and bars, Nobama nooses, and other shait I've seen out here. It's bizarre. Driving through Henderson, you'd think Romney/Ryan had the state wrapped up, there's so many bumper stickers and trucks with homemade "take our country back" signs and crap. It's like Las Vegas' armpit, or something.
