New Mexico Unknown impersonator 2014-11 General In person Impersonation 0 1 The Rio Arriba County Clerk’s office confirmed a case of impersonation voter fraud in the November 2014 general election involving an imposter who voted by providing the name and address of an eligible voter. County election staff detected the fraud when the actual voter arrived to vote at the Health Commons Clinic in Española and was told someone else had cast a ballot under his name three days earlier. The man told poll workers he hadn’t voted, and officials were able to confirm that the signature on the original ballot did not match the legal voter’s signature on file. The evidence collected showed that a crime occurred, not a mistake or misunderstanding. Poll workers allowed the man to vote on a provisional ballot. Elections officials have no legal means of actually verifying signatures or confirming identification of a voter. Bobbi Shearer of the Secretary of State’s office said that "under current law there are no means available to poll workers to help them determine if a voter is actually the person he says he is.” Shearer said the fraudulent voter’s vote had already gone through a tabulator and could not be identified or separated from the legitimate ballots in the machine. None - no way to identify the impersonator http://www.santafenewmexican.com/elections/elections_2014/state/incident-spurs-p... http://krqe.com/2014/11/02/officials-new-mexico-man-victim-of-voter-fraud/ http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3222398/posts
