The best way of determining the proper safeguards to "deter and detect" voter fraud that endangers thedemo­cratic process is to examine actual reported cases. By reviewing how this fraud was discovered, investigated, and prosecuted, we can determine the best legislative and regulatory measures to ensure our elections will not be stolen. The studies that follow examine extensive voter fraud in Chicago in the 1982 governor's race, a successful 14-year conspiracy in New York that affected primary elections, the outright theft of local elections in Greene County, Ala­bama, in 1994 through absentee ballot fraud, and the growing problem of illegal voting by noncitizens.
