Policy Analyst: Voter Fraud is Real

While the left continues to argue voter fraud is a myth, the Heritage Foundation's voter fraud data base tops 1,000 proven cases.

President Donald Trump convened his presidential advisory commission on election integrity last week.  The Heritage Foundation also unveiled 100 new cases of voter fraud from all over the U.S.

“The purpose of the data base is to make it abundantly clear that there are proven intances of fraud in American elections and these have resulted in criminal convictions and civil penalties,” says Jason Snead, policy analyst at the Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, Institute for Constitutional Government.

Snead says voter fraud comes in many forms and affects both sides of the political aisle.

“It can range from something as simply as someone walking into a polling a place and representing themselves as someone else, to a mass conspiracy that is designed to swing an election in a town or state,” he says.

The president's commission looks to root out the problem.

“We have evidence of people casting fraudulent ballots in both Republican and Democratic primaries, trying to influence Republican and Democratic politics, this is really an issue where anyone's vote can be effectively canceled out,” says Snead.
