California admits voter fraud.

June 25, 2019

President Donald Trump falsely suggested that California admitted that “a million votes” were cast as part of “much illegal voting” in that state during the 2016 presidential election.

JANUARY

Non-citizens voting in Texas.

January 30, 2019

President Trump wrongly claims that “58,000 non-citizens voted in Texas.” That’s based on the state’s efforts to match driver’s license and state ID card applications from noncitizens to voter registration rolls. But none of those on the lists have been confirmed as noncitizen voters.

2018

NOVEMBER

Voter fraud wins Orange County, CA; Florida recounts; and Noncitizens voting in Florida.

November 14, 2018

Amid a contentious Florida recount, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a six-year-old, and outdated, story to suggest hundreds of thousands of noncitizens could have voted in the state. The story includes an update saying just 85 noncitizens were ultimately removed from the state’s voter rolls in 2012.

November 13, 2018

With votes continuing to be counted in very close elections in Florida, Georgia and Arizona, President Donald Trump and some other Republicans have been crying foul, making false and misleading claims of supposed election fraud perpetrated by Democrats in an attempt to “steal” the elections.

OCTOBER

Schumer said what?

October 2, 2018

A: No. A Facebook meme and viral stories continue to incorrectly quote the Senate Democratic leader.

SEPTEMBER

California registering noncitizens to vote.

September 14, 2018

Q: Is California registering noncitizens to vote?

A: No. A state motor-voter program and a San Francisco school board measure have fueled that false claim.

JULY

Obama rigged 2016 election with 4 million illegal votes.

July 25, 2018

Q:  Did Fox News reveal that President Obama rigged the 2016 election with “4 million illegal votes”?

A: No. That falsehood is based on a pre-election interview with an election lawyer who discussed the possibility of votes being cast on behalf of dead people.

MARCH

California automatically registering illegal immigrants to vote.

March 8, 2018

Q: Is California planning to “automatically register illegal immigrants to vote”?

A: No. The headline making that claim is false and misrepresents the law in California.

President Donald Trump made an apples-to-oranges comparison to suggest that his predecessor and Democrats have changed their tune on election rigging.

2017

September 11, 2017

Kris Kobach, vice chairman of the Presidential Commission on Election Integrity, claims to have “proof” of voter fraud in New Hampshire that may have swung a U.S. Senate election in favor of the Democrats. He doesn’t.

AUGUST

More than 25 million Hillary Clinton votes were completely fraudulent.

August 3, 2017

Q: Did NPR report that a study found “over 25 million Hillary Clinton votes were completely fraudulent,” and that she “actually lost the popular vote”?

A: No. That claim was made in a story that conflates a 2012 article about inaccuracies in voter registration rolls with actual fraudulent votes.

FEBRUARY

Thousands from Massachusetts bused in to vote illegally in New Hampshire.

February 14, 2017

White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller doubled down on President Trump’s unsupported claim that thousands of voters were bused in from Massachusetts to vote illegally in New Hampshire.

JANUARY

More false and misleading claims; Massive voter fraud in 2016 election; and Trump won the popular vote if you don't count illegals.

January 26, 2017

January 25, 2017

President Donald Trump continues to claim — without any evidence — there was massive voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election.

2016

NOVEMBER

Trump won the popular vote -- if you deduct illegal votes.

November 28, 2016

President-elect Donald Trump baselessly claimed that he “won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.” Even the author of the study upon which the claim is based doesn’t buy that.

OCTOBER

Illegal immigrants can vote if they have a driver's license; and Urban myths.

October 21, 2016

Donald Trump falsely claimed that “John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, was quoted in WikiLeaks as saying, illegal immigrants could vote as long as they have their driver’s license.” Podesta said no such thing.

October 19, 2016

Donald Trump is citing unsubstantiated urban myths and a contested academic study to paint a false narrative about rampant voter fraud in the U.S. and the likelihood of a “rigged” election.

AUGUST

Nobody voted Republican.

August 2, 2016

Donald Trump said he’s worried about a “rigged” general election, citing “precincts where there were practically nobody voting for the Republican” in 2012. Voting experts said such outcomes in certain urban districts were entirely plausible given the demographics.

2013

JANUARY

More votes than voters in Ohio and Florida; and Obama lost every state with photo ID laws.

January 17, 2013

Q: Is it true that there were more votes than voters in Wood County, Ohio, and St. Lucie County, Fla., and that Obama lost every state with photo ID laws?

A: No. A viral email that makes those claims is bogus. It fabricates Ohio and Florida results. Also, Obama won four of the 11 states with photo ID laws.
