Election fraud

From dKosopedia

Election fraud refers to attempts to change election outcomes by illegally taking any of the following actions (though some items on the list may not be illegal in certain jurisdictions):

It should be distinguished from voter fraud, which is an individual's attempt to vote in a manner that is against the law (for instance, not in the proper jurisdiction). Election fraud has much greater potential than voter fraud to affect the vote. It has been claimed that the prevalence of voter fraud has been exaggerated by certain groups that would benefit from suppressing voting among certain populations. According to this argument, requirements for physical voter ID (also called real voter ID) are instituted not in order to prevent individuals from voting illegally, but in order to suppress the vote among those for whom obtaining the ID would be a hardship.
