Members of the public are invited to attended the meeting, which takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Pietro’s No. 2, 679 Merchant St. in Vacaville.

For information or to RSVP, contact Colleen Britton at 514-0360 or email at vacatpp@gmail.com. Visit the website at www.vacavalleyteaparty.webs.com.

    Hasn't the data shown this to be an infinitesimal problem? Out of the 197 million votes cast for federal candidates between 2002 and 2005, only 40 voters were indicted for voter fraud. Only 26 of those cases, or about .00000013 percent of the votes cast, resulted in convictions or guilty pleas. I'm glad people are out there to make sure the laws are followed, but statistically, it seems like a cause without a problem.

    If this is really a non issue than why is the democrat party so vehemently against any form of voter ID verification law?

    It's strange because they say the poor can't afford a id, which is free. Some kind of strange hardship to show a id when voting, and yet you need one for all the government programs these people are on!!! Why is it so bad to have people prove they are a valid registered legal voter? I don't care what side you're on. Other countries have better voter fraud protection. Hanging chad, huge issue, major big freemen issue, voter fraud, democrats don't care. Is it illegals voting they want? Criminals? Plug all the duplicates. Voting in more then one area. Etc. voting is so important, but they could care less if it's accurate. As long as they can win by cheating I guess, because rally, what other real reason could it be? There is none.

    Every registered Mexican voter has a Voter ID card, complete with photograph, fingerprint, and a holographic image to prevent counterfeiting.At the Mexican polling station, there is a book containing the photograph of every voter in the precinct. This book is available to the poll workers and observers from various parties. If there's a doubt as to someone's identity, the poll workers can simply look up the person's name and see if the photo matches up. The Mexican voter's thumb is smudged with ink. That way, if he shows up at another polling site to vote, they know he's already voted elsewhere. (The ink wears off after a few days.) IF MEXICO CAN DO IT WHY CAN'T WE

    What possible benefit do people get from voter fraud if less than .00000013 % of votes cast were fraudulent? Are elections really swayed by this? You have to provide proper ID to REGISTER to vote, right? Again, it's an issue without a problem.
