The instances where someone attempts to vote using someone else's identity are so few and far between, they don't constitute a real problem. 

I'm a lot more concerned with voter intimidation and voter suppression.

We had a friend who passed last week. He may have already voted before he passed. IMO, these are the only "dead" people who might have voted, and whose votes might affect this election.

Sure, there's quite a few people that get left on the voter lists after they die for a while.

The turnout among that group is very very low though.

I think its sad people think votes count whether its a dead or an alive person casting the vote. And of course voter fraud is a real thing, but does it matter when both sides play for the same team?

I agree. I think voter intimidation and suppression is a bigger concern.
