‘A sampling of election fraud cases from across the country’

The Heritage Foundation provides a 381-page catalog of election fraud cases.

The Heritage Foundation is an American conservative think tank in Washington, D.C. Focusing on public policy, the foundation gained popularity among the conservative movement during the presidency of Ronald Reagan, who took policy cues from Heritage's policy study Mandate for Leadership.

The group compiled a 381-page document listing the "election fraud cases from across the country, broken down by state, where individuals were either convicted of vote fraud, or where a judge overturned the results of an election."

The document emphasizes it is not an exhaustive list "but simply a sampling that demonstrates the many different ways in which fraud is committed."

"Preventing, deterring, and prosecuting such fraud is essential to protecting the integrity of our voting process," the document reads.

The list includes 1,071 proven cases of voter fraud, 938 criminal convictions, 43 civil penalties, 74 diversion programs, 8 judicial findings, and 8 official findings.

This means that there are 983 documented cases that resulted "in a defendant entering a plea of guilty or no contest, or being found guilty in court of election-related offenses."

There are 43 documented cases "resulting in fines or other penalties

imposed for a violation of election laws."

74 cases "in which a judge directs a defendant into a pre-trial diversion program, or stays or defers adjudication with the understanding that the conviction will be cleared upon completion of the program."

8 cases in which a court of law found that "fraud occurred in an election, including judicial orders overturning election results or ordering a new election due to fraud."

And 8 cases in which it was found by a government body "that fraud

occurred in an election, including orders overturning election results

or ordering a new election due to fraud."
