|Ohio||Unnamed Columbus County voter||2012-11||General||Multiple voting||1||A Columbus County resident could face felony charges of voter fraud for casting a ballot twice in the November 2012 election. The Columbus County Board of Elections met in a special called meeting regarding a voter that officials believe may have cast absentee ballots at two different early voting, one-stop sites. Both ballots were cast under the same name and had identical addresses but the registrations had different dates of birth affiliated with them. One of the ballots was cast at the board of elections headquarters and then another absentee ballot cast at a different one-stop site the next morning. The case may be turned over to the district attorney and/or federal authorities but because it is considered a criminal investigation, County Attorney Mike Stephens advised elections officials in closed session. Stephens referred to the matter as a “duplicate registration” Thursday and was hesitant to make any further details public. Multiple name changes in the voter’s record and even a change in dates of birth contributed to the verification system not detecting the discrepancies, officials say.||http://www.electionlawcenter.com/uncategorized/possible-voter-fraud-under-invest...|
|New York||Dutchess County Democratic Election Commissioner staff||2011||Poughkeepsie primary||D||Absentee/Mail||Ballot tampering||New York State Supreme Court Justice Charles Wood ordered data relating to 40 City of Poughkeepsie 2011 primary election absentee ballots to be returned to its previous status. Republican Dutchess County Elections Commissioner Erik Haight charged one of Democratic Commission Frances Knapp’s staffer “manipulated” data to benefit the Democrats. Haight also asked the Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office to investigate what he believes is voter fraud. “I caught one or more Democratic Board of elections employees manipulating and tampering with data in the system to divert absentee ballots and the court ordered that manipulation was to be undone and it’s a huge victory for the absentee voters in Dutchess County because the votes that were diverted were elderly and disabled people.”||http://www.midhudsonnews.com/News/2011/October/21/DC_BoE_Crt-21Oct11.htm|
