The Guinness record for the most fraudulent election ever reported belongs to the Liberian general election of 1927, in which President Charles D.B. King was re-elected over challenger Thomas J. Faulkner:

Candidate Votes %
Charles D.B. King 243,000 96.43
Thomas J. Faulkner 9,000 3.57
Total 252,000 100.00

As there were fewer than 15,000 registered voters, this represents a turnout of 1,680 percent — robust indeed.
