Since voter fraud is nearly non-existent, I would say voter participation is a bigger issue.

Wait...what? You're saying we should use our energy and resources to solve problems that actually exist?

Since I only see one as a problem, I would say fraud.

Voter participation. 

Not to go too OT, but civic engagement seems like a big issue in general.

For fun I'll repost the link to a study done on the topic of voter Fraud

Brennan Center



Allegations of Voter Fraud

The "voter fraud" cry has been increasingly used to justify policies that suppress legitimate voters. But the cry is baseless; allegations of voter fraud—especially polling place impersonation fraud—almost always prove to be inflated or inaccurate. The Brennan Center carefully examines allegations of fraud to get at the truth behind the claims. The truth of the matter is that voter fraud—votes knowingly cast by ineligible individuals—is exceedingly rare; one is more likely to be struck by lightning than to commit voter fraud. Our work debunking the voter fraud myth is available at Truth About Fraud.

Voter participation - to be exact voter's understanding the process is the most important thing.

voter fraud should be eliminated by voter registration processes. It is imperative that voters are vetted properly at that stage and not harassed at the polls.
