Many Americans are concerned about voter fraud, while experts wonder if the conduct of American elections has improved since 2000. In an effort to clean up our election laws, reduce fraud, and increase public confidence in the integrity of the voting system, many states have passed laws requiring a photo ID be shown at the polls and curbing the widespread use of absentee ballots, which can facilitate fraud. Critics argue that such measures seek to suppress voter turnout. Yet public confidence in the integrity of elections is at an all-time low. One poll found 62 percent of American voters thought that voter fraud was very common or somewhat common. Another survey found that 82 percent of Americans support photo ID laws. As Americans prepare again to elect a president, please join us for a lively discussion of this provocative new book on the integrity of the vote.
