Reality About Voter Fraud

by Hawke published Nov 12, 2020 02:45 PM, last modified Nov 13, 2020 10:32 PM
There is a lot of hype on all sides about voter fraud. Here is the reality.

 

To date there aren't any huge instances of vote fraud proven.

However, there is a long history of instances of voter fraud, especially for small, tight, narrow margin elections.

Here is a list of proven voter fraud instances (this is by no means comprehensive, I hope over time to keep adding to it as time permits).
