North Carolina Unnamed Poll Worker 2010-11 General Impersonation In person 1 According to the Lenoir County Board of Elections minutes, during the 2010 general election a poll worker pulled the master list, removed the necessary label, grabbed a ballot and proceeded to vote in place of a member of the family. Details as to the worker, the precinct and the candidate to whom those votes would have gone have not been released. Former LCBOE Chairman Robert Waller said the board was informed of the incident at its Nov. 12, 2010, meeting, and sent the case on to the State Board of Elections. From there, an SBOE investigator pursued the case, taking statements from elections director Dana King and other poll workers. “It’s my understanding that that matter was referred to the D.A. for your prosecutorial district,” SBOE Elections Liaison Veronica Degraffenreid said. District Attorney Branny Vickory said the investigation remains open as of May 2013 but couldn’t say if there will be further action resulting from its findings. http://www.kinston.com/20130519/local-poll-worker-accused-of-voter-fraud/3051999...
