|Pennsylvania||Voting Irregularities in Philadelphia County 2012 Primary (Schmidt Report) >Impersonation: Joseph Cheeseboro/Joseph Cheeseborough||2012-06||Primary||Impersonation||Non-citizen voting||Multiple voting||1. Voting by non-registered individuals This type of voting irregularity occurs when an individual who is not registered to vote in Philadelphia at the time of an election casts a vote. Evidence in this report shows individuals who were not registered voters at the time of the 2012 primary, yet still cast votes included in the Certified Election Results. 2. Voting by individuals in the incorrect party’s Primary This type of irregularity is one of the most common irregularities that occur in Primary Elections in Philadelphia. A division in which all non-Democratic voters cast votes for candidates in the Democratic Primary is examined in this report. 3. Divisions with more votes than voters This type of voting irregularity occurs when more votes are cast on the Voting Machines than voters who showed up to the polls. We examined a division where either 6 unknown voters were able to vote without signing in, or at least one person voted more than once. 4. Voting by individuals in the incorrect legislative district This type of voting irregularity refers to voters casting votes on the Voting Machines in a legislative district that does not include the division in which the voter is registered. Examples of voters casting votes in districts other than their own are included in this report. 5. Individuals voting more than once This type of voting irregularity occurs when a voter is able to vote more than once in the same election. Evidence in this report confirms an example of an individual who voted twice, illegally in the 2012 Primary. 6. Voter impersonation This kind of voting irregularity occurs when one individual impersonates another and is able to vote in place of the person whose name appears in the Poll Book. This report contains evidence of one such example. 7. Voting by non-U.S. citizens In 2012 alone, the Philadelphia City Commissioners have already been made aware of 19 non-U.S. citizens registered to vote in Philadelphia County. Seven have voted in at least one election, as recently as the 2012 Primary. This report will examine three such examples.||https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27249508/Voting%20Irregularities%20Report.pd...|
