President-elect Donald Trump is alleging there was quote-serious voter fraud in New Hampshire and other states during the election earlier this month, despite no evidence to back up such a claim.

Trump narrowly lost New Hampshire to Hillary Clinton, though won the election despite losing the overall popular vote.

In a series of tweets Sunday, Trump claimed he would have won the popular vote had it not been for the quote-millions of people who voted illegally.

Trump also claimed there was serious voter fraud in New Hampshire, Virginia, and California.

Claims of mass voter fraud, both here in the state and nationally, have been debunked.

A recent analysis by the non-partisan fact-checking site Politifact found that since 2012, the New Hampshire attorney general’s office has prosecuted just two criminal voter fraud cases and one civil fraud case.

Governor-elect Chris Sununu has raised concerns about what he calls “drive-by voting” in the state. The Republican says he wants to repeal the state’s same-day registration law.
