“The reality is that we do unfortunately have election fraud occur in this country, and we also have mistakes and other problems occur in our system,” said von Spakovsky, who has written prolifically regarding campaign finance, voter fraud, voter ID laws and how federal voting rights laws must be enforced.
During the interview with Life Site News' John-Henry Westen, von Spakovsky made the important observation that, no matter how much the mainstream media may call Joe Biden “president-elect,” that title is not officially his until and unless all of the states have certified their election results.
Von Spakovsky also said this may not happen for a long while because many states are still subject to recounts and litigation regarding allegations of voter and election fraud.

All of the electors of each state are scheduled to meet on December 14th, at which time they will cast their votes to elect the president of the United States.
Listen to this episode of the Health Ranger Report, a podcast by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, as he talks about how the mainstream media is attempting to rush the results of the election in order to force President Donald Trump to concede. They want this to happen so that the truth about their involvement in massive election fraud won't be revealed.
During his interview, von Spakovsky gave specific instances of election fraud. Many of them revolve around the use of mail-in or absentee ballots, which he believes are likely sources of serious security breaches, especially if their implementation was rushed and not properly regulated.
In a report written for the Heritage Foundation -- of which von Spakovsky is a senior legal fellow -- he enumerated several elections that had been stolen in the past thanks to the use of mail-in or absentee ballots.
The most recent example of this occurred in the 2018 midterm elections, when Republican Mark Harris' victory in the race for the ninth congressional district of North Carolina was voided because evidence surfaced of “concerted fraudulent activities related to absentee by-mail ballots.”
The North Carolina State Board of Elections conducted a thorough investigation and concluded that a new election had to be called. They found that ruthless political operatives had run a “coordinated, unlawful and substantially resourced absentee ballot scheme.”
For instance, multiple requests for absentee ballots were submitted under forged signatures, and people were hired to collect absentee ballot request forms, as well as to falsify the information written on them.
Then, during the election itself, many voters discovered that they had already voted through absentee ballots that were submitted on their behalf and without their knowledge or consent.
Von Spakovsky said that the absentee ballot operation in the North Carolina race shows just how vulnerable mail-in voting is to large-scale fraud, forgery, coercion and voter intimidation.
Furthermore, similar elements of absentee ballot fraud are being found all over the country. So, before presidential elections can properly be conducted through mail-in ballots, von Spakovsky says the integrity of the election process must first be secured.
“Encouraging even more mail-in voting and relaxing security protocols, such as witness or notarization requirements, is a dangerous policy,” he added.
