Is Voter Fraud Real?

• by Eric Eggers

While the major media fixates on the influence of foreign powers on American elections, a much more serious attack has been taking place right under our noses: Good old-fashioned, home-grown voter fraud. Let's look at three of the worst offenses. 

Example number one: bloated voter rolls. 

In 244 counties across the United States, there are more registered voters than there are people legally eligible to vote. Twenty-nine states have counties with more registered voters than legal residents. And eight states have more registered voters than actual voting-age people.

When the Supreme Court upheld Ohio's efforts to clean up its own voter rolls in 2018, the majority opinion cited Pew Center statistics: 24 million voter registrations in the United States are either "invalid or significantly inaccurate." And nearly 3 million people are believed to be registered to vote in more than one state.
