Voter ID: According to an Associated Press report, “hundreds” of Texans improperly cast ballots in November by signing a sworn statement falsely claiming they did not possess a required photo identification. The AP’s analysis of “roughly 13,500 affidavits submitted in Texas’ largest counties found at least 500 instances in which voters were allowed to get around the law by signing an affidavit and never showing a photo ID, despite indicating that they possessed one.”

The cases may not qualify as voter fraud per se, because all the individuals signing affidavits had to be registered to vote. However, they could face prosecution for perjury.
