|North Carolina||Erik Ray Jackson||M||2011-10||Candor municipal||2012-02||Ineligible district voting (+registration)||Erik Ray Jackson, accused of voter fraud in the 2011 municipal elections in Candor, had the charges dismissed in a plea* agreement in Superior Court in Troy in 2013. Jackson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of giving false information to law enforcement. The charges of fraudulent voter registration and fraudulent voting were dismissed. Superior Court Judge Bradford Long sentenced Jackson to 18 months of unsupervised probation and court costs. Jackson was charged on Feb. 17, 2012, with the voter registration violations and was free on a $1,000 unsecured bond. Jackson was alleged to have registered to vote in Montgomery County on Oct. 14, 2011, and claimed the same Candor address as his friend, Wayne Holyfield. The subsequent investigation by the State Bureau of Investigation confirmed that Jackson lived in Lexington and, while he had been staying at Holyfield’s residence, had not met the 30-day residency requirement. According to court records, Jackson’s residence was still at the same address in Lexington as reported in 2011.||*Plea deal: 18 months of unsupervised probation plus court costs, for 1 misdemeanor charge of giving flse information (fraudulent registration and fraudulent voting charges dismissed)||http://courier-tribune.com/sections/news/local/jackson-charged-voter-fraud-montg...||http://courier-tribune.com/sections/news/local/voter-fraud-charges-dropped-plea-...||Link to plea deal is broken, no other links found.|

|Mississippi||Prentiss Harris||Ann Reed Margie McNair Dona Jones Prentiss Harris Gloria Smith||F||2015-11||State General||2015-11||Illegal assistance||Voter intimidation/coercion||In February 2016, the Mississippi Attorney General's Office took over the prosecution in a voting fraud case filed against five Franklin County pollworkers charged with election fraud during the Nov. 3, 2015 general election at the Bude precinct. Circuit Judge Forrest “Al” Johnson issued the warrants for their arrests. Prentiss Harris and Gloria Smith, both of Bude, were charged with breaking a state law that says an election officer who aids or influences a voter in preparing a ballot may be fined no less than $10 and no more than $200. All of the women were working the Bude precinct on Election Day. Anita Leonard and Carl Cupit, both Republican Party poll observers at the Bude precinct, filed the charges on Nov. 13. Leonard said she saw pollworkers going beyond what is allowed in helping voters and alleged that the pollworkers weren’t properly checking voters’ identification. Sen. Melanie Sojourner, R-Natchez, contested her close loss to former Sen. Bob Dearing in the Senate District 37 race. Dearing, a Democrat, won the seat back from Sojourner by a 62-vote margin.||Charges dismissed||https://mississippipep.wordpress.com/2015/11/23/franklin-county-poll-workers-arr...||http://www.dailyjournal.net/view/story/b113715bcd3745eca3352936439d5364/MS--Vote...||http://www.dailyjournal.net/view/story/24b8c1cc5dbd4ba38d83910a01f74b81/MS--Elec...|
