Stephen Norton: Fraud evidence lacking

March 16, 2013 

Evidence lacking

Quoting The N&O (“Voter ID proposal attracts a crowd” March 13), supporters of a voter-ID law claim such a law “would increase public confidence in elections and that fraud is more widespread than statistics show.”

The first statement implies that the public lacks confidence in elections, and the second implies that fraud statistics are wrong.

I would like to see the evidence for both statements.
