Here, but occasionally There.
With the knowledge that there has been election fraud (especially so it seems with 2020), Heritage has got to work to point out election "weaknesses" in the various states. There have been reports that very few fraudulent votes have actually been cast in 2020, but this news story seems to think there is a lot more.

"Several years ago, Heritage created an Election Fraud Database to shed light on this issue. A sampling of recent, proven instances of election fraud from across the country that now has over 1,300 entries. Every case represents an instance in which a public official, usually a prosecutor, discovered fraud serious enough to act upon.

It’s important to note that the database, by focusing on successfully prosecuted cases, is only a small sampling of the much larger problem. An unknown number of legitimate instances of election fraud go undetected or fail to be pursued by the authorities.

To address this serious issue, The Heritage Foundation has created and is now releasing the Election Integrity Scorecard. This scorecard analyzes the election laws and regulations of every state and the District of Columbia to measure how well they protect the integrity and security of the election process. To deter such fraud, protect the right to vote, and ensure fair and secure elections, we are making the Election Integrity Scorecard available to voters, state legislators, and election officials across the country.

Creating the Election Integrity Scorecard was not easy. Heritage analysts reviewed the laws of every state relevant to election integrity, checked the accuracy of each law by election-law experts, and provided the opportunity for state election officials to fix any incorrect summary of their laws and regulations.

The Election Integrity Scorecard grades each state based on whether its laws and regulations meet 47 different standards within 12 broad categories, derived from "best practices" recommendations that Heritage has previously published.

These categories cover everything from requiring identification for voting to maintaining the accuracy of voter registration lists to handling absentee ballots securely and effectively. They require states to have strong laws ensuring transparency and the ability of candidates, political parties, and the public to observe every aspect of voting and elections. Such transparency is fundamental to fair and honest elections."
