Oklahoma Unknown impersonator 2012-11 General In person Impersonation 0 1 Jay Kelly went to the polls on Election Day, November 2012, in Oklahma City, only to find someone else had already cast a ballot in his name under his address. When Kelly showed his ID to a poll worker, she said he'd already voted. Kelly told her that that he hadn't, voted showed her his signature on his ID, and took a picture of the voter log where someone else had signed his name. The poll worker suggested that Kelly sign and vote as someone else in that person's place instead, but said he was really uncomfortable with that and didn't want to go to jail. A supervisor told Kelly he could cast a provisional ballot, but he said that wasn't an option. He was eventually allowed to cast a regular ballot, which was counted - as was the other ballot cast earlier in his name The state election board secretary said the matter would be reported to the district attorney's office. Voter fraud in Oklahoma is a felony. None - no way to identify the impersonator http://www.news9.com/story/20024126/election-board-investigates-possible-voter-f...
