2020 Election Legal Challenges

What is going on with the election results?

If Joe Biden won or not seems to depend on who you ask.

Let’s take a look at where things stand now.

Six states and the District of Columbia have either had lawsuits filed there over the election results or have conducted recounts. Michigan is among those six.

Of at least the 56 cases to have been filed over election results in those states, at least 44 have been dismissed, denied, settled or withdrawn.

No case has established irregularities of a scale that would change the outcome of the presidential election.

Attorney General William Barr said on December 1 that FBI agents and U.S. attorneys have been investigating voter fraud complaints but “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

The Heritage Foundation is a conservative leaning group. They say there have been 1,300 proven instances of voter fraud since the 1980s.

Of those, about 1,100 were convicted and 48 faced civil penalties.

This may leave you wondering: was there more fraud this November election than in elections’ past?

We should know that answer by Monday.

That’s when all states are supposed to have their results certified.

President Donald Trump’s campaign and Republicans have mounted legal challenges in several states, although most are small-scale lawsuits that do not appear to affect many votes.

Below you will find the status of several election-related legal challenges brought by President Donald Trump’s campaign and Republicans.

No case has established irregularities of a scale that would change the outcome of the presidential election.

Lawsuits that remain do not contain evidence that would flip the result.
