|New York||Dutchess County Democratic Election Commissioner staff||2011||Poughkeepsie primary||D||Absentee/Mail||Ballot tampering||New York State Supreme Court Justice Charles Wood ordered data relating to 40 City of Poughkeepsie 2011 primary election absentee ballots to be returned to its previous status. Republican Dutchess County Elections Commissioner Erik Haight charged one of Democratic Commission Frances Knapp’s staffer “manipulated” data to benefit the Democrats. Haight also asked the Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office to investigate what he believes is voter fraud. “I caught one or more Democratic Board of elections employees manipulating and tampering with data in the system to divert absentee ballots and the court ordered that manipulation was to be undone and it’s a huge victory for the absentee voters in Dutchess County because the votes that were diverted were elderly and disabled people.”||http://www.midhudsonnews.com/News/2011/October/21/DC_BoE_Crt-21Oct11.htm|

|New Jersey||David Callaway||Marty Small Ernest Storr Tracy Pijuan Luquay Zahir Floyd Tally Toni Dixon Dameka Cross Mark Crumble Michele Griffin Ramona Stephens Demaris Jones Ronald Harris||2009||Municipal - Democratic primary||2009-09||Absentee Ballot Fraud||9||David Callaway and Luquay Q. Zahir were campaign workers allegedly working alongside Atlantic City Councilman Marty Small to commit absentee ballot fraud. They were charged with 9 counts of voter fraud. Allegedly, voters were asked to apply for absentee ballots, but instead of letting the voters choose their own candidate, a self-proclaimed “secret army” mishandled ballots and even had a “shredding party” to dispose of votes for opposing candidates. Voters were told whom to vote for, never received their ballots — which wound up being cast anyway — or got their applications and ballots at the same time. It was alleged that some voters did not even live in the city, and used fictitious addresses in order to vote. The charges against Callaway were dismissed.||Dismissed||http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/395062-new-jersey-dcj-cases-3.html||http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/news/breaking/voter-fraud-charges-dropped-aga...|

|Texas||Election contest: Al Edwards v. Borris Miles||2010-03||Democratic primary||D||2010-03||Election contest||Ineligible district voting||Absentee/mail||Challenger and former state Rep. Borris Miles won a recount by eight votes over incumbent Rep. Al Edwards, but Edwards has filed a lawsuit, alleging Miles was aided by voter fraud in the March 2, 2010 primary. The lawsuit, filed in Harris County District Court, claims that Miles, who officials had initially said won by 10 votes, benefitted from votes of people who “were not legally qualified and/or registered to vote for the following reasons: (i) the voter’s residence was outside of Harris County and/or District 146; (ii) the voter was fraudulently or improperly registered to vote or the voter’s registration had been cancelled: (iii) the voter was ineligible to vote because he or she was previously convicted of a felony: (iv) the voter did not properly complete an application for an early voting by mail ballot: and (v) early voting by mail ballots were cast that were procured by fraud or without the consent or knowledge of the actual voter.” Edwards asks that the court, after determining that illegal votes were cast, compel voters who cast illegal ballots to tell who they voted for.||http://www.texaswatchdog.org/2010/03/-borris-miles-beats-al-edwards-by-8-votes-i...|
