|Connecticut||Peter Nygard||M||2008-11||Registration Fraud||Ineligible district voting||A complaint was made that Richard Murray, Neill Bovaird, Kelly Way, Nancy Pilon, Janelle Rooks, M. Samantha Geiger, Amy Bovaird, Peter Nygard, Shannon Nygard and Angela Harwood were registered and in some cases voted in a place where they did not reside. An Election Commission investigation found that the defendants had registered in good faith with the belief that they did reside in the district in which they registered. The Commission found that had the Registrar's office been more thorough and done their due diligence, it would have found that the addresses provided were not within the required district and the voter registrations/voting would not have occurred.||Not charged||http://seec.ct.gov/e2casebase/data/fd/FD_2010_073.pdf|

|Tennessee||Brenda Woods||Yolanda Giles, Taletha McNeal Traylor, Amos Watkins||F||2009-05||Bolivar municipal||D||In person||Procuring illegal voters||ineligible felon voting||3||3||Former Bolivar City Council member Brenda Woods was convicted of three counts of procuring illegal voters in the city's May 2009 municipal elections. Yolanda Giles, Taletha McNeal Traylor, and Amos Watkins said that during early elections Woods took them to the polls to vote for her. They testified they told Woods they had felony convictions, but she assured them they could still vote. An investigation by Tennessee Bureau of Investigation revealed the three felons had cast ballots illegally since their voting rights had not been restored. The three were granted immunity for testifying. Woods was convicted on the same charges in 2011, but was awarded a new trial on appeal two years later. As a result of her convictions, Woods can no longer vote or run for elected office. Woods was sentenced to two years of community corrections, which entails intensive community-based supervision and treatment provided by agencies contracted by the state.||2 years of community corrections||http://www.wmcactionnews5.com/story/25029628/former-bolivar-city-official-convic...||http://wreg.com/2014/05/20/former-boliver-city-councilwoman-sentenced-for-voter-...|
