Customer Reviews

One measure of the usefulness of a book is the power to predict, and by that measure this book is very powerful indeed.
Hyrum
This book is an eye opening work that should cause the generally apathetic population to rethink their contribution to the election process.
Alexander R. Mathews
This book is completely different from the earlier version and is a must read for anyone concerned about the upcoming election.

John Fund writes about the stories that you do not read in most newspapers or hear about on the network news. Civil rights are violated when someone doesn't get to vote, but also when their vote is negated by fraud on the part of others. Not only are there people out there running scams to steal people's votes through things like absentee ballot fraud, but there is a growing trend to settle elections by lawfare rather than allowing every vote to be counted. Fund may be a conservative, but facts are facts. Read the book and judge for yourself.

This book is completely different from the earlier version and is a must read for anyone concerned about the upcoming election.
Fund uses numerous examples to back up his claims regarding vote fraud. Vote fraud is not a myth as evidenced by the felony convictions of various members of ACORN (a group Obama worked for and backs). ACORN creates fraudulent voter registration lists in order to get the candidates they back elected to office.
Fund also discusses voter ID laws and outlines the battle that ended at the Supreme Court earlier this year with the decision that voter ID laws are constitutional despite what liberals cry.
It's truly amazing how little policing there is of who votes and when and where in this country. All citizens with the right to vote should be concerned about the issue of vote fraud because every time someone without the right votes, it dilutes legitimate votes.
The first reviewer's rant about all things Republican seems misplaced - this book is about ensuring democracy for all, not partisan politics.

As we approach the 2008 Presidential election it is difficult not to be alarmed at what has become of the election process in this country. John Fund brings us all up to date on just what is going on in the updated version of his 2004 book "Stealing Elections, Revised and Updated: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy". If you are as concerned as I am about the myriad problems we face in conducting elections in this nation then I urge you to take the time to read this extremely important book.

The problems appear to have started in 1994 with the enactment of the Motor Voter Law. This innane act allows individuals to register to vote in church, at the laundromat or at just about any government agency. What is particularly outrageous about this practice is that absolutely no identification is required to register in most states. When I first read about this many years ago I recall thinking just how ridiculous this law was. People can also register by mail, again with no identification required. And the consequences of this law should not be at all surprising. We now have many more fraudulant votes being cast by illegal aliens, convicted felons, people who moved away years earlier and yes even by dead people!!! Have you read the news about ACORN lately? As a result the ballots cast by legitimate, law-abiding citizens are being negated. It is an absolute outrage!

Another way elections are being stolen in this country is by the use of absentee ballots and extended election periods. It used to be that a citizen needed to present officials with a legitimate reason for being sent an absentee ballot. Today, in the name of "convenience", standards have been greatly relaxed and more and more voters are opting for absentee ballots.

John Fund has written a very interesting book on the history of voter fraud and includes many recent elections and how the vote count came out as less than true. Interesting enough Mr. Fund takes exception with both parties and is equally critical of their tatics.

While I'm a political "junkie" I truly believe anyone with an interest in what truly goes on in our election process would get a lot from this book. They certainly won't be bored.

An interesting side note is that as I write this Al Franken is trailing Norm Coleman by a small margin of 340 votes in the Minnesota Senatorial race. He is considering an appeal to the Senate who has the right to determine who the winning candidate is. This same thing happened in a previous Congressional election and the majority party put their candidate in even though he didn't have the most votes. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Every voter in our democracy should read this excellent update of John Fund's book. We must all be careful and alert that our voting is not corrupted by those who wish to take shortcuts to victory. Pay particular attention to the forthcoming election processes in Minnesota and Georgia.

Format: Paperback
Stealing elections is a very informative book. It lays out the tricky methods used to influence the outcome of elections. First the author will write about a specific method from a theoretical perspective. And he follows it up with one or more examples.

It is an excellent book. The only catch is that the author is a bit long winded. So moving from one topic to another can take a while. Even so, it is still and excellent read.

John Fund's excellent non-partisan "Stealing Elections" is a tough look at one aspect of America's broken democracy -- election fraud -- and does a competent job of covering this growing problem. He takes both Democrats and Republicans to task for underhanded behavior. He does a particularly good job at researching recent developments from a reporter's neutral viewpoint. Still, the seriousness of the subject suggests a need for a well-funded study run by academics who could apply more analytical rigor. Still, Fund's book is the best we've got.

America's election system is perhaps the "modern world's sloppiest election system" writes Mr. Fund. It's haphazard and fraud prone. The US ranks near the bottom among world nations in terms of voter participation (139th of 163 democracies). Local election offices are cash-strapped and voter rolls are flawed; voter ignorance, lackadaisical law enforcement and shortages of trained volunteers further compound the problem. Reform is easy to talk about, hard to do. A close election risks a legal battle fought by armies of lawyers, so it's necessary to win "beyond the margin of litigation" he writes.

Voting is problematic because it's a private act done in public for a political purpose. So it's difficult to know whether an election result is valid since much of the choosing is concealed from public view.

Mr. Fund criticizes both sides for underhanded tactics. In somewhat of a stretch, he tried to apply Thomas Sowell's "unconstrained" and "constrained" categories to voting (I wonder what Mr. Sowell might think about this). The connection is somewhat loose -- Democrats prefer fair outcomes (votes cast) while Republicans prefer fair process (playing by the rules) and I agree with Mr. Fund's general direction, but it's still a stretch.
