(Continued from Page 2)

Here at Slate,we thought we'd offer some of the best claims of fraud from around the country. We'll update you as the reports come in, and we hope to hear from you if you have something to report.

Let's get the ball rolling with this amazing phone call (courtesy of the American Prospect Online) reported in Virginia, where it's a now criminal offense for registered Democrats to show up at the wrong polling place.


Republicans in New Jersey are being confronted with voting machines that are primed to vote in advance for the Democratic candidate (courtesy MSNBC).

We are also following the story of the Kentucky poll worker who choked a voter, and the poll worker from Tennessee who's been arrested for casting votes for dead people.
