I couldn't agree more heartily.  The election laws are there for a reason.  When those are abused, even if the "irregularities" of an election is so-called, not seriously impacted enough to alter the election, the entire election process is called into question.  It is about integrity of an election.  In addition, in an election where many voters do not turn out to vote, every single vote can make the difference in a tight election in a small or a large precinct.  But more importantly, an irregular vote, an illegal vote, takes away the power of the legal vote.

We must demand that when irregularities are proven, the full force of the law be applied.
