In recent months, voters have been subjected to false accusations of voter fraud. This has gotten to the point that Republicans are using voter fraud as a political weapon. President Donald Trump claimed that Democrats attempted to steal the election, but he provided no evidence. In addition to false accusations, the widespread use of computerized voting systems has made it possible for people to vote in more than one state. This has resulted in reputational damage and time in court. Furthermore, false accusations can land people in jail or face prohibitive fines.
In addition to these accusations, several politicians have accused private-equity voting software companies of doing shoddy work. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren have said that private-equity voting software companies placed profits over security. Merritt, for example, saw a darker side to voting machines and found evidence that votes were switched in midterm elections. He began by investigating voting-software companies’ staffers, board members, and foreign nationals connected to them. He also identified former government officials who took jobs with these companies.
In 2016, the Office of Attorney General charged 155 individuals with voter fraud. At the time, 43 people were arrested. Voter fraud does happen, though the actual number is low. According to recent reports, illegal immigrants were sent absentee ballots in some states, and in Oregon, a man pleaded guilty to forging signatures to get crack cocaine. Additionally, some states have laws against voting by mail, which makes it even more difficult to avoid the problem of voter fraud.
Dominion voting machines were notoriously vulnerable to hacking. This video showed how an untrained kid with a cell phone could manipulate the voting process. It is clear that there was little oversight of the company, and workers were training to do it. One such worker admitted to adding a Trump vote to a Biden vote. Additionally, a video showed how voting software was designed to allow users to drag votes from one candidate to another, thereby throwing the vote away.
The effects of voter fraud can be devastating. Whether or not it is intentional or unintentional, a conviction for this crime can result in heavy fines or even jail time. As such, it is important to seek legal representation if you suspect that you may be a victim of voter fraud. There are resources available online for this purpose. If you suspect that someone has committed voter fraud, it is a good idea to seek legal counsel to protect your rights and future.
While voter fraud is a complicated process that requires considerable time, intelligence, and energy, it is far from an answer to the problems of our elections. It can even lead to Jim Crow-style disenfranchisement. Jim Crow banned disenfranchised people from voting and threatened violence if they didn’t do so. While voter fraud is often overlooked as an excuse, it can be detrimental. The reality is that it is far more prevalent than the perception of voter fraud.
