New Mexico Unknown impersonator 2014-11 General In person Impersonation 0 1 The Rio Arriba County Clerk’s office confirmed a case of impersonation voter fraud in the November 2014 general election involving an imposter who voted by providing the name and address of an eligible voter. County election staff detected the fraud when the actual voter arrived to vote at the Health Commons Clinic in Española and was told someone else had cast a ballot under his name three days earlier. The man told poll workers he hadn’t voted, and officials were able to confirm that the signature on the original ballot did not match the legal voter’s signature on file. The evidence collected showed that a crime occurred, not a mistake or misunderstanding. Poll workers allowed the man to vote on a provisional ballot. Elections officials have no legal means of actually verifying signatures or confirming identification of a voter. Bobbi Shearer of the Secretary of State’s office said that "under current law there are no means available to poll workers to help them determine if a voter is actually the person he says he is.” Shearer said the fraudulent voter’s vote had already gone through a tabulator and could not be identified or separated from the legitimate ballots in the machine. None - no way to identify the impersonator http://www.santafenewmexican.com/elections/elections_2014/state/incident-spurs-p... http://krqe.com/2014/11/02/officials-new-mexico-man-victim-of-voter-fraud/ http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3222398/posts
Connecticut Michael Weinberg M 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. A neighbor accused the couple of not living in Roxbury, and therefore illegally voting in the 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 elections. 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
