Ohio Unnamed Lorain County voter M 2012-11 General Multiple voting 1 The Lorain County Board of Elections is investigating a Henrietta Township man who cast two ballots during the 2012 presidential election. The man requested an absentee ballot on Oct. 23, and the ballot was returned to the elections board Nov. 3. The man then voted at his polling place Nov. 6. Elections board Director Paul Adams said the voting book at the polling location indicated that he already cast an absentee ballot but he was allowed to sign the book over where it said “absentee sent.” The presiding judge at the polling place told elections officials that she did not recall what happened with the voter, but Adams said her conduct also is under review. Elections board members said that they think the issue should be investigated and likely turned over to prosecutors. “Here we have an example of a person who clearly voted twice,” elections board member Anthony Giardini said http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2012/11/21/henrietta-township-man-accused-of-...
