Which is more likely to be true? Voter Fraud or Voter Suppression?

  • Best Answer

    As far as in-person voting at polling places, suppression. Although fraud does occur, it occurs mostly by mail and absentee ballot, so any measures to make it harder to vote in person at polling places, or to check ID at polling places, would actually tend to increase fraud, by causing more voters to vote by mail or absentee ballot.

  • both/neither ... example: VA and PA both had such lax voter registration a few years ago that each is now believed to have hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who are registered voters

  • Voter suppression.

    Those are the facts. Conservatives want you to believe there is voter fraud so they can Institute voter suppression.

    Thats the game. And you're an idiot if you fall for it.

  • The big problem here is voter suppression.  Voter fraud is very rare, and people impersonating someone else at the polling place is essentially nonexistent.

  • Both have happened. Voter suppression is wide-spread and well-documented. People are now finding out that they've been purged from the roles in Republican-controlled states, despite having voted in the last election. 

    Voter fraud happens but is rare. Searches for fraudulent votes are conducted regularly and rarely find enough to influence any elections.

  • The term "voter suppression" is deliberately vague, and means nothing even upon close analysis.

    What are you referring to, exactly?  I've seen people refer to an ID requirement as "voter suppression."  If that's voter suppression, then voter suppression is a good thing, since we have to maintain the integrity of our elections. Did you have something else in mind?

  • Voter suppression is far easier, and can be done under the guise of legality.

    Donnie's one man commission to find those 3 million votes that he lost by was quietly shut down after 6 months, and finding 0 fraudulent votes.
