I read with interest your Guest Editorial by Phil Noble, “Voter ID not about fraud.”
He states, “There is no problem,” and “ there has a single case of voter impersonation in South Carolina ‘for decades’.”
His conclusion is just not the fact.
As a poll manager in Mount Pleasant, last Tuesday I witnessed a case of voter impersonation. Upon further inquiry of my staff, the same unregistered person was recalled to have attempted to vote two years ago in the governor’s election. I am told this is often the case in the Charleston peninsula. I am preparing a Voter Fraud complaint against this person.
I am also told by the Chairman of the Elections Commission, that complaints of this nature go no place with the Solicitor’s Office. If they are not prosecuted, they never show up in the State’s statistics.
