An Interesting Perspective on Vote Fraud

The July/August edition of the magazine Mother Jones informs us that there have only been 31 documented incidents of vote fraud among the more than one billion ballots cast in the U.S. from 2000 through 2014.

Contrary, by the way, to what many Republicans seem to feel: that elections are being stolen left and right in this country. Memo to Republicans: they’re not. Grow up.

Anyhow, Mother Jones offered these numbers in an interesting context: according to the magazine, you’re 15 times more likely to die of constipation than you are to be a victim of voter fraud.

It couldn’t hurt.

So on election day, loosen up, go to the polls, and don’t worry about your vote not counting.

And it wouldn’t hurt to get a little fiber in your diet, too. An apple might be nice, or maybe a bran muffin.
