President Donald Trump announced there would be a national voter fraud investigation. This is probably a good idea. Whether there is or isn’t fraud, we frequently hear people discuss it. Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler says he takes all allegation of fraud very seriously. Louisiana did not have any widespread irregularities or allegations during the 2016 presidential election cycle. He stated that in addition to being a citizen of the United States, you are actually signing a legal affidavit creating an official public record stating you meet all the necessary requirements for you to vote.

He stated that the Register of Voters statewide are also required by law to revue, monitor, and update our voter registration list for accuracy.
