The margin of voter fraud

Sonic Charmer looks into it and says it's 1.2%.

I suspect that the number is bigger - certainly a lot of people would like it to be bigger.

Personally I think that number is low...

I would believe a number closer to 5% myself.

My grandfather died in 1959 and is still a registered voter in Cook County.

I'm sure in some areas it's well over 10%.

Sounds about right. In some races, that is plenty to decide the outcome. In races that are more than 2% difference, they don't bother with fraud.

It is also worth pointing out that voter fraud is predominantly a tool of only one party.

I got a sample ballot for the dead guy that used to own my home. So he is still registered, 3 years later. If I were a Democrat, I would have voted twice.
