Do Democrats Discriminate Against White and Asian Americans?

Claim: A recent mailer paid for by the America First Legal Fund alleged that Joe Biden and left-wing officials are engaged in widespread racial discrimination against Whites and Asian-Americans.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. Affirmative action policies—which consider whether an applicant to a job, college, or social program is of a race that has been historically disadvantaged in the U.S.—seek to achieve socio economic equity, not to target white and Asian Americans.

Are Democrats tampering with voting machines?

Claim: Republicans are claiming that Democrats are tampering with ballot machines to count illegal votes as a way to steal the midterm elections.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. These erroneous claims of voter fraud began amidst the 2020 elections. Federal agencies, state election officials, and technology experts have all said that we should have utmost confidence in the results and process of the 2020 election. “The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history,” the coordinating bodies on election infrastructure and security wrote in a joint statement issued by the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

Is the lack of final results on Election Night because of fraud?

Claim: Many Americans believe that in the 2022 midterm elections, if results are not announced on Election Night, it is because of fraud.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. More Americans are voting by mail and voting with an absentee ballot than ever. This means that the results of the election will take longer to be counted because it takes longer to count mail-in ballots and absentee ballots. Many election officials are urging Americans to have patience, and the delay in results is a sign that every vote is being counted.

Is voter fraud a widespread problem?

Claim: A number of Republican politicians, including former President Donald Trump, have claimed that voter fraud is a widespread issue, and that more election security measures need to be taken.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. Numerous studies, including those funded by Trump, have not found any widespread incidents of voter fraud. Those studies have said that voter fraud is exceedingly rare. But these claims of voter fraud have led 14 states to pass new voting laws which critics have said will make it harder for people to vote.

What are the midterm elections and why are they important?

Much effort and resources have been devoted in the Vietnamese community towards understanding the importance of the presidential elections in controlling the U.S. government’s agenda. However, the midterm elections are just as important, if not more important, in determining the everyday policies that directly affect Vietnamese Americans, such as jobs and the economy, inflation, education, and healthcare.
