Ohio Secretary of State Admits Voter Fraud is Rare

Still backs voter ID law


After a contentious and controversial election season, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted is standing by the measures his office took to restrict early voting in 2012, as well as the state's voter ID law, even though he now admits that voter fraud is "a very rare occurrence."

In an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, Husted said that while county boards of elections across the state are investigating apparent attempts by hundreds of people to vote twice, "the system caught it" and "we shouldn't overreact."
