Oklahoma Election contest: Leon Pinson v. Leonard Washington 2015-03 Bristow municipal Ineligible district voting Election contest Bristow mayoral candidate Leon Pinson sued the Board of Elections and some voters over the March 3, 2015 municipal election, alleging the voters named defrauded the system by registering to vote in Bristow though they don’t live within city limits. Pinson lost the election to incumbent Leonard Washington by 12 votes. He asked for a recount; the Board of Elections said the results were the same. In the suit Pinson and his lawyer claims the defendants used their businesses as their address and that’s how they’re registered to vote. If that is true it is against the law. According to state law you must live where you are registered to vote. http://www.fox23.com/news/local/bristow-politician-claims-voter-fraud/66842992

New Mexico Candidate petition challenge: Carlos Villanueva v. Jacob Candelaria (Southwest Political Services hired by Candelaria campaign) 2012 Democratic primary D Petition fraud Forgery 31 people responsible for collecting signatures to get Democrat Jacob Candelaria on the June 2012 ballot were named in a criminal investigation, accused of falsifying voter records and voter fraud. The Candelaria campaign said the suspects are former canvassers for a company called "Southwest Political Services". That company was paid by Candelaria's campaign to gather the needed 75 signatures to get his name on the ballot for the District 26 State Senate seat. A number of voters say they never signed the petition and that their signature was forged. At one household, a man found his name on the petition twice with two different style signatures and also found his wife's signature. "She never signed at all." Another voter said more of the same. "Not even the print is her handwriting," a woman said of what was supposedly her mother's signature. "And that is not even how you spell her name." At another address, a woman said the voter listed on the petition moved out years ago. The Bernalillo County District Attorney's Office said it was reviewing the case, and complaints were also files with the Secretary of State's Office and with state police concerning the forged signatures.
