North Carolina Contested Election: Tommy Johnson vs. Linda Gantt 2015-11 Trinity municipal Contested Election Ineligible district voting 1 Five towns in North Carolina will repeat 2015 municipal elections when voters head to the polls for the March 15 primary. The State Board of Elections ruled this week in favor of municipal election challenges in Benson, Trinity, Lumberton, Pembroke and Ahoskie. In each of those towns, a second-place town council candidate complained of possible election law violations that could have cost them the election. The board’s general counsel, Josh Lawson, said board members found “evidence of irregularities sufficient to cast doubt on the outcome.” In Trinity, two city council candidates, Tommy Johnson and Linda Gantt, were tied with 168 votes each. The board ruled that one of the voters, a former council member, had sold her Trinity home and moved to Morehead City, so she couldn’t participate. State law calls for a new election if officials find an election law violation that could swing the outcome. The county election board holds an initial hearing on complaints; the state board gets the final say and schedules a new vote. New election ordered. http://courier-tribune.com/news/local/trinity-may-have-hold-new-election http://www.newsobserver.com/news/politics-government/state-politics/article55722...

Ohio Heather Halstead Joel Speyer Marc Gustafson Daniel Hemel Tania Kyle Michael Anne Kyle +7 others 2008 General D Ineligible district voting 13 Heather Halstead was one of a group of wealthy/politically connected individuals, mainly New York Democrats, who admitted they set up a temporary house in Ohio and then voted in that battleground state. The New Yorkers and nine individuals from around the country admitted they should never have registered in Ohio. As part of a deal* with prosecutors, the 13 apologized and claimed they had "misunderstood" the state's voting rules. "Without reservations, we apologize to the community [and] for the problems this misunderstanding has caused," said Greg Nolan, spokesman for activist group Vote from Home. The group is run from the East 82nd Street brownstone of Heather Halstead, daughter of Halstead Properties founder Clark Halstead. Halstead and her husband, Marc Gustafson - along with Bank of New York Mellon exec Joel Speyer and former New York Sun reporter and Scarsdale resident Daniel Hemel - and their friends were investigated after they crammed into a three-bedroom house in Columbus and registered to vote. All of them cast Ohio ballots, even though they are already registered in New York. *Plea deal: No charges filed http://republicanmichigander.blogspot.com/2008/10/rich-new-york-democrats-commit...
New Jersey Election contest: Fernando Gonzalez vs. Sergio Diaz 2014-11 Perth Amboy municipal D Election contest Absentee/mail Illegal assistance A Superior Court judge threw out the November 2014 election results for a Perth Amboy City Council seat, ordering a new election after finding that the city's Democratic chairwoman took advantage of elderly nursing home residents. The judge threw out 13 ballots; the margin of victory was just 10 votes. Among the residents whose mail-in ballots were thrown out by Judge Heidi Currier was a blind man, a resident who couldn't recall either her address or having voted, and others who testified that Leslie Dominguez-Rodriguez coerced them into voting for her husband, a candidate for Board of Education. The Democratic Organization chairwoman Leslie Dominguez-Rodriguez resigned as a result of the voter fraud allegations.
