Minnesota Ineligible felon voters (1,099) 2008-11 General 2010+ Ineligible felon voting 243 Minnesota Majority identified 1,099 ineligible felons who voted in the November 2008 U.S. Senate election, which was eventually decided by 312 votes, by comparing criminal records with voting rolls. Minnesota Majority took the information to prosecutors across the state. Many were not interested in pursuing the cases, but Minnesota law requires authorities to investigate such leads. As of 2012, 177 ineligible felon voters had been convicted of voting fraudulently in the Senate race, and another 66 were awaiting trial. Many of the ineligible felons avoided conviction by saying they didn't 'knowingly' vote unlawfully. While some ineligible felon voters registered in advance of the election and should have been flagged for challenge, the overwhelming majority who evaded detection used Election Day Registration, which currently has no mechanism to detect or prevent ineligible voters.  http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/york-when-1099-felons-vote-in-race-won-by-312-... http://www.electionintegritywatch.com/documents/2011-Report-Voter-Fraud-Convicti... http://www.mnvoters.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=266%3Amva-p...

Connecticut Helene Barbara Weinberg F Ineligible district voting Michael Weinberg and wife Helene Barbara Weinberg lived in a home in Roxbury while simultaneously maintaining a home in New York City.

The neighbor also accused the couple of attempting to disenfranchise the votes of other Roxbury residents by sending out an email indicating that one could register and vote in Roxbury if they paid taxes there, and that they didn't necessarily have to live there. The State of Connecticut State Elections Enforcement Commission determined that the couple did qualify as residents of Roxbury, and didn't send out the email with the intent of disenfranchising anybody's vote, despite the incorrect legal advice. The matter was dismissed Dismissed http://seec.ct.gov/e2casebase/data/fd/FD_2009_122.pdf
