Connecticut Lonnie Reed F 2005-11 Ineligible district voting A complaint was brought against Lonnie Reed alleging that she was not a resident of the town where she cast her ballot. Reed sold her Branford home, where she had lived for 25 years, seven days before an election and was living at the home of friends who lived in the same town. Although she tried to buy a home in the same district, she ultimately moved to an address in District 4. The Connecticut Elections Enforcement Commission investigation concluded that because Reed had the intention of buying a house in District 5 at the time of the election, she was not guilty of fraud. The complaint was dismissed. Dismissed http://seec.ct.gov/e2casebase/data/fd/2007_158.pdf

Texas Cynthia Gonzalez 2016-05 Democratic Primary Runoff Absentee/Mail The Texas Attorney General's office is investigating potential voter fraud in Nueces County during the May 2016 primary runoff election. One voter, Juan Castellanos, told elections officials that ballot havester Cynthia Gonzalez had filled out his ballot in the Constable Precinct 5 race for incumbent Frank Flores III instead of for his preferred candidate Gilbert Gomez. Patricia Franklin, who has been working Nueces County elections for about 15 years, said a relative of Flores "brought in people every day that she didn't seem to know." In 2006, a 65-year-old Robstown woman pleaded guilty to two counts of felony voter fraud in Robstown for voting for residents. http://archive.caller.com/news/politics/elections/local/nueces-county-clerk-anno...
