Registry would fight fraud

With all of the recent information about voter fraud, I am surprised that I haven’t heard any talk about something that I think could stop people from voting more than once in different states, etc.

What we need is a national voter registration list. With computers doing such amazing things now, this could be made to work. Your voter registration would be identified by your Social Security number. Once you have voted, it would register in the national list. If you try to vote again, it would be automatically nullified.

Naturally this would not stop all voting fraud, but it could stop a good share of it.
