"If you and I both go to the polling place to vote, and I'm freely allowed to vote but you have to pay $20 before you're allowed to exercise that right.... that's not fair." Your words.

The problem isn't just dead people voting. It's also living people voting multiple times. On of the Carolina's recently identified 35,000 voters with the same names and date of birth voted more than once in 2012. Most likely these are college students but 35,000 is a major case of potential fraud
