Virginia Democrat potential voter fraud: Beer for Votes

"In elections in which federal candidates are on the ballot, no one can offer any kind of benefit or reward for voting. The simple way to deal with this is to open up the event to all comers — voters and nonvoters alike," Loyola Law professor and election law expert Rick Hasen wrote POLITICO in an e-mail. "This is a very common problem, because people believe they are doing their civic duty by encouraging other people to vote. And in many states, in elections when federal candidates are not on the ballot, this activity is perfectly legal."
