Ohio ? M 2008 2010 General Multiple voting Cross-state voting 2 On March 23, 2012, the Ohio Secretary of State said a Fulton County man may have been registered and voted in Ohio since 2006 and North Carolina since 2002, and may have voted in both states in the 2008 and 2010 general elections. Voter registrations in both states have the same name and personal identifying information. If the man did vote in both states, it would be a fourth degree felony violation of Ohio law. http://www.archboldbuckeye.com/news/2012-03-28/News/Potential_Voter_Fraud_Case_U...
Texas Chris De Leon Irene Rodriguez F 2014-06 Mercedes municipal runoff Absentee/mail Illegal assistance Chris De Leon, the owner of the adult daycare that disabled senior Yolanda Gonzales attended, and Irene Rodriguez, the wife of Mercedes City Commissioner and mayoral candidate Rudy Rodriguez, entered Gonzales' home, opened mail-in ballots for the June 2014 City Commission runoff, and instructed Gonzales how to complete her own ballot. The two women then instructed Gonzales to complete and sign the ballots of her mentally-impaired brother Rene Gonzales and her 88-year-old bedridden father Jose Gonzales, who weren’t home. It’s illegal to cast someone’s vote for them without their knowledge and to instruct someone how to vote as they are voting. It is also against the law to mark their ballot or take it to the mail for them without signing as a voter assistant. Describing the incident, Yolanda Gonzales — who, at 64, suffers from various disabilities — didn’t seem to understand that what she had done was wrong. She said she had just followed the instructions of the campaign workers, who told her she was allowed to mark votes for her father and brother. http://www.themonitor.com/news/local/mercedes-man-alleges-campaign-workers-took-...
