In one corner, President Trump and his allies claim massive fraud cost him the 2020 election.
In the other, Democrats and sympathetic media allies argue that the vote was free and fair and that the fraud charge amounts to a sour grape conspiracy.

Many of the allegations made by the President, his deputies and supporters have been challenged, and some have been dismissed or debunked by the courts.
In numerous cases, however, the media fact-checkers have not been diligent. They simply passed the allegations past state authorities and other officials who orchestrated the alleged fraud or had an interest in minimizing irregularities.
It was not surprising, then, when the New York Times reported that it had phoned officials in every state and, as the headline stated, that there was “no evidence of election fraud.” This is the kind of statement that arouses skepticism because cheating is inevitable in big elections. The Times itself appeared to admit exactly what was in the subheading of the article without providing evidence that “there were no irregularities that affected the outcome.”
Of course, “irregularities” in a basic function of American democracy, even if they did not affect the outcome, remain an integral part of 2020 election history as legal proceedings and controversy continue. Below is an ongoing, selective collection of hyperlinked articles detailing the fees for voting irregularities or irregularities electronic fraud is made in various states, particularly major battlefields like Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
