Dozens of billboards touting stiff potential jail sentences and fines recently appeared in predominantly African-American and Latino neighborhoods:

A person is more likely to be hit by lightning than to commit in-person voter fraud, so the signs are unlikely to deter a practice that is already almost completely non-existent.
