Readers’ Election-Fraud Questions—Answered

For months, President Trump and his allies have made numerous claims about election fraud in various competitive states. The drumbeat of unsubstantiated allegations has left some Americans with the false impression that the presidential election was marred by widespread wrongdoing—and others confused about what actually happened.
