Can Big Data Help Eliminate Voter Fraud?

Conservatives take it as a matter of faith that voter fraud is rampant. Liberals take it as a matter of faith that concern over fraud is merely a cover for voter suppression. Where does the truth lie? Can we resolve this argument based on the facts? We may soon find out.

In Frederick County, Maryland, an election watchdog group is suing the OId Line State over alleged voter fraud. Another “gotcha” moment for conservatives or proof of voter suppression?

Neither. The plaintiffs in this suit are pioneering a new approach to determining whether fraud exists, and who might be its perpetrators. Their approach is elegant, simple, and purely fact-driven. It places no undue burden on legitimate voters, while it deters those ineligible to vote. It violates no one’s privacy. And it provides a template that can be used in every county of the country to either root out voter fraud or demonstrate its absence. Both sides in this debate should hail it as the answer to their prayers.
