The idea that fictitiously registered voters don’t actually vote is wrong, Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund tells Newsmax.
Fund, a voter fraud expert and author of "Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy," says that fraudulent voters have already started to impact the presidential election.

While Atlanta Journal-Constitution editor Cynthia Tucker dismisses voter registration shenanigans by claiming the fake voters won’t show up at the polls, Fund says at least four fraudulent registrants have already voted in Ohio’s Franklin County. The process is easy, Fund adds. The fraudsters simply use absentee ballots.
Franklin County officials say there remains a major risk of fraud stemming from mass canvassing of new voters. Ineligible voters may well be accessing absentee ballots as a way to avoid checks at polling places. Currently 13 registrants are under investigation in the county.
According to Franklin County voting requirements, anyone can obtain an absentee ballot by giving a name and address and signing a statement saying that they are a qualified voter, along with a form choosing which election they’d like to vote in.
Once they get the absentee ballot, Fund said all they need to do to cast their vote is sign the form and mail it in.
