Voter impersonation is a type of vote fraud in which a person claims to be someone else when casting a vote.

Difficulty proving voter impersonation

In addition, allegations of voter impersonation are often difficult to prove.[1][2] It is true that direct evidence of such fraud is hard to come by, but this is mostly because election officials are unable to discover an impersonation without the laws and tools needed to detect an identification requirement. Many states do not have identifica­tion requirements, and, in turn, election officials have no way to prevent fraudulent votes from being cast by individuals based on fake voter registrations, by impersonators or by non-citizens who are registered to vote.[3]
