Free and fair elections are the key to preserving our democracy. Every American citizen who is eligible should be able to vote, but it is equally important that every citizen’s vote not be diluted or stolen through fraud, especially fraud that could change the outcome of an election. The United States, unfortunately, has a long history of voter fraud that has been documented by historians and journalists. Such fraud can make the difference in a close election – particularly at the local and state level – where many outcomes are decided by a very small number of votes.
Can Americans trust the integrity of their election processes? What steps are governmental officials at all levels taking to assure votes are cast and counted equitability? Has the U.S. Department of Justice been a help or a hindrance implementing procedures and policies to guarantee that our elections are honest and legitimate representations of the true will of the people?
