|Minnesota||Ineligible felon voters (1,099)||2008-11||General||2010+||Ineligible felon voting||243||Minnesota Majority identified 1,099 ineligible felons who voted in the November 2008 U.S. Senate election, which was eventually decided by 312 votes, by comparing criminal records with voting rolls. Minnesota Majority took the information to prosecutors across the state. Many were not interested in pursuing the cases, but Minnesota law requires authorities to investigate such leads. As of 2012, 177 ineligible felon voters had been convicted of voting fraudulently in the Senate race, and another 66 were awaiting trial. Many of the ineligible felons avoided conviction by saying they didn't 'knowingly' vote unlawfully. While some ineligible felon voters registered in advance of the election and should have been flagged for challenge, the overwhelming majority who evaded detection used Election Day Registration, which currently has no mechanism to detect or prevent ineligible voters.||http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/york-when-1099-felons-vote-in-race-won-by-312-...||http://www.electionintegritywatch.com/documents/2011-Report-Voter-Fraud-Convicti...||http://www.mnvoters.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=266%3Amva-p...|
