|Colorado||Corrie Houck (former candidate for city council)||F||2015||Denver municipal||D||2016-01||Petition fraud||Forgery||13||0||Corrie Houck was charged with 13 counts of forgery and perjury for forging signatures on her candidate petition. Houck, a Democrat who ran for Denver City Council District 2’s seat, allegedly knew about the forged signatures but signed off on the petition anyway. More than half the signatures on Houck's petitions did not match the signatures on file for the voters named. Three voters listed on Houck's petitions were dead and had been for some time. Houck also submitted a signature for an election judge's mother, who is known to have Alzheimer's disease and her caretaker says she did not sign the petition. The Denver District Attorney's Office charged Houck with one count of attempting to influence a public servant and six counts of forgery, all felonies, plus six misdemeanor counts of perjury.||https://www.scribd.com/doc/294649081/Corrie-Houck-Charging-Document-and-Affidavi...||http://kdvr.com/2016/01/04/dead-people-big-bird-other-allegedly-forged-signature...|
|Texas||Election contest: Jasen Rabalais v. Michael Papillion||2016-03||Democratic primary||D||2016-03||Election contest||Voter intimidation/coercion||Absentee/mail||Harris County constable chief deputy Jasen Rabalais, who narrowly missed making the runoff in the Precinct 3 constable's primary election on March 1,2016, has sued the top two vote-getters, seeking to annul the results because of alleged violations of election law. Rabalais alleged in court papers on March 10 that a campaign worker for Michel Pappillion, a candidate who beat him by 37 votes and edged him out of the runoff, illegally cast votes on behalf of some senior citizens. Sherman Eagleton was the top vote getter by more than 800 votes of more than 18,000 cast, while Rabalais came in third. Eagleton and Pappillion are scheduled to face each other in the May 2016 runoff for the Democratic nomination. Pappillion denied allegations that his campaign violated election law, but declined to say whether he employed the campaign worker, referring questions to his attorney, Andy Taylor. Rabalais' complaint states that the worker initially approached his campaign, offering to "deliver votes from seniors through special access to senior living facilities," guaranteeing 1,000 votes, and Rabalais turned her down. Rabalais supporters noticed the worker at the polls wearing a Pappillion shirt and telling elderly voters that they had already voted, the complaint alleges. The Rabalais campaign confronted the worker, who told them she is a nurse, has access to nursing homes and gets seniors to "vote for that person who [she is] working for," the complaint alleges. The complaint alleges the worker "deliberately falsified, illegally completed, or unlawfully influenced the ballots and early voting applications of elderly residents" in Precinct 3. Rabalais' suit calls for the court to order a new election, subtract illegal votes or "declare the outcome of the election if able to ascertain the true outcome."||http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Constable-can...|
|Hawaii||Tiffany Edwards Hunt||F||2012||2016-03||Registration fraud-ineligible district||Ineligible district voting||1||1||Tiffany Edwards Hunt, a 2014 County Council District 5 candidate, was charged with voter fraud for violating Section 19-3.5, Hawai’i Revised Statutes, according to the office of the Hawai’i County Prosecuting Attorney. Edwards Hunt was accused of using her husband’s surf shop address in Pahoa instead of her home address in Hawaiian Acres over a five-year period from 2008 to 2013. The two addresses were located in different districts, allowing her the potential to vote in a district race that was not the one she lived in. The charge is alleged to have occurred between Aug. 7, 2012 and Nov. 5, 2012, and is a class C felony, which could be punishable with up to five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.||http://bigislandnow.com/2016/02/24/voter-fraud-charged-against-former-county-cou...||http://hawaiitribune-herald.com/news/local-news/former-county-council-candidate-...|
|Florida||Anthony Grant||Antionette Nowells James Randolph||M||2015-03||Eatonville municipal||D||2016-03||Absentee/mail||Voter intimidation/coercion||Vote buying||25||Eatonville Mayor Anthony Grant, Mia Antionette Nowells, and James Randolph were indicted on 25 felony voter fraud charges for coercing voters and submitting illegally obtained absentee ballots in the March 2015 mayoral election in which Grant was elected. Following the indictments, the governor suspended Mayor Grant. A grand jury found that Grant, Nowells and Randolph solicited an absentee ballot from someone who didn't live in Eatonville, marked ballots for voters, and forced people to register to vote. The charges followed a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation and a lawsuit filed by his opponent seeking a new election that also alleged Grant offered bribes and told people he would lower their rents in exchange for their vote. Orange-Osceola State Attorney Jeff Ashton's office will prosecute the case.||http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-eatonville-election-grand-j...||http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-eatonville-election-lawsuit...|
