Study: Voter Impersonation Fraud, Target Of Voter ID, 'Virtually Non-Existent'


"The fraud that matters is the fraud that is organized," Lorraine Minnite, author of "The Myth of Voter Fraud," told News21. "That's why voter impersonation is practically non-existent because it is difficult to do and it is difficult to pull people into conspiracies to do it."

News21's analysis found that other types of fraud, like absentee ballot fraud, were more common. Out of the 2,068 alleged election-fraud cases examined, 491 of them involved absentee ballot fraud.

Conservative columnist John Fund admitted last week that Republicans often focus on voter impersonation fraud over absentee fraud because conservatives have a perceived advantage in voting via mail. Absentee ballot fraud, he admitted, was the "tool of choice amongst fraudsters."
