Many liberals believe the 2000 election was stolen through voter fraud, while conservatives point to the ACORN voter-registration scandal as proof of fraud and the need for voter ID laws. With George Washington's unanimous election as the one exception, mischief has always surrounded the ballot box. The 2012 presidential election, already highly contested, is bound to inspire cries of "fraud." Rest assured that unscrupulous members from both parties will attempt to give their candidates an edge on polling day. Read on to guard yourself against disenfranchisement in the upcoming election. It can happen in more ways than you think.
