In Burson v. Freeman, , 504 U.S. 191 (1992), the U.S. Supreme Court held that:

election fraud [is] successful precisely because [it is] difficult to detect.

Id. at 208.

The Court upheld a Tennessee law banning "the solicitation of votes and the display or distribution of campaign materials within 100 feet of the entrance to a polling place." The Court rejected a legal challenge based on the First and Fourteenth Amendments.
