Some Say Voter Fraud Billboards Use
I don't get some of the comments. This billboard is crime prevention. This is what is going to happen if you vote illegally or try to do something illegal when it comes to the vote. This doesn't prevent, in any way, someone legally voting.

Well, I certainly hope it does keep folks from illegally voting.

I don't even care if it's a "scare tactical" meant to discourage voters from showing up to vote (though it's obvious that it is just to discourage voter fraud). It's true, it's legal, and if someone is scared away from voting because of it, I frankly won't miss their vote. I'm all for an educated populace being the primary check and balance against a tyrannical government. When the people become ignorant, the government will try to get away with more and more until the people are enslaved. If someone is so ignorant that they are scared away from voting because of the billboard, it's probably best they aren't voting, though I believe voting is a right and duty of all people, as well as being educated about the actions of the government that we elect.

Or as Winston Churchill put it: “The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.”

What hateful forms of intimidation this is...telling people if they violate the laws they could be in serious trouble! Must be some right wing lunacy running wild out in America today.

Voter fraud is illegal...
Intimidation? What, you got a guilty conscience?

Cripes! What is the problem here? Someone is intimidated by signs that state legal fact?
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
It could be worse!
