Election officials who have come to the United States from other countries to observe our elections are often amazed and chagrined to learn that no identification is required to register to vote or to cast a ballot. Many of these visitors are from countries plagued by extensive voter fraud. The biggest lesson they often learn from the United States is how not to structure a voting system. The irony is that the greatest democracy in the history of the world is so cavalierly undermining the integrity of the most fundamental right its citizens have – their right to vote in fair elections.
The Georgia Public Policy Foundation is a driving force for market-based solutions to policy challenges. The work done by this outstanding organization is making a real impact on the future of Georgia. I personally consider the Foundation a primary source for policy ideas. All Georgians are better off because the Foundation is helping lead the critical policy debates in our state.
