In recent years, Republicans have passed laws throughout the country to make it more difficult to vote. Often, they’ve claimed that they’re cracking down on voter fraud. The only problem? Voter fraud effectively doesn’t exist.
Those findings confirm a recent analysis of primary, general, special and municipal elections by Loyola University professor Justin Levitt. He found that since 2000, more than a billion ballots have been cast in the United States and there have been just 31 credible incidents of voter fraud.
That’s not exactly an epidemic.
