Though a New York Times investigation found no support for claims that millions of votes were cast illegally on Election Day or that there was widespread fraud, it did find a relatively high number of fraud claims in Tennessee. The Times polled each state and the District of Columbia, compiling data from every jurisdiction except for Kansas. Based on that review, Tennessee had 40 credible allegations of fraud, more than any other state. Mark Goins, the state director of elections, says he believes the high number was due to vigilance by the state. The Nashville Business Journal has more.
