This chapter examines how commonly several types of election fraud are thought to occur in American elections. Using data collected from surveys in all 50 states in the 2012 election, the chapter tests whether demographic, political, experiential, and state-level electoral attributes affect public evaluations of election fraud. It demonstrates that non-voters and supporters of losing candidates are more likely to think that voter fraud occurs in their community. A positive experience at the polls increases voter confidence in the process, but state laws requiring photo identification do not affect trust about in-person fraud activities, such as voter impersonation, voting twice, or non-citizens voting.
