Skepticism about voter fraud is often used as a means of removing protection from election integrity and putting in place practices that make cheating and fraud possible. You may have already found some “fact checking” sites that claim that worries over voter fraud are unfounded. However, for example on Snopes, you will note if you look at the link that Snopes is merely expressing their opinion backed by no evidence
In fact, evidence of voter fraud is overwhelming. It has been going on for years and it occurs in every state. You
can use this interactive map to see a sampling of election fraud cases in the U.S. After you fact check a few of these cases, yourself, and realize that these are the challenges that made it to the courts and have had an outcome you will quickly realize that there is objective evidence of voter fraud, the problem is widespread, and it has been going on for a long time.
If you are tempted to ignore the issue because cheating seems to favor a side you support, ask yourself why that is. Do you really think that the other side has too much integrity, honesty, and spirit of fair play to cheat in an election? Remember that a system that protects the integrity of the vote favors the candidates with integrity, honesty, and who are likely to be best representatives of the interests of the people.
