|New Jersey||Toni Dixon||Marty Small Ernest Storr Tracy Pijuan Luquay Zahir Floyd Tally David Callaway Dameka Cross Mark Crumble Michele Griffin Ramona Stephens Demaris Jones Ronald Harris||2009||Municipal - Democratic primary||2009-09||Absentee Ballot Fraud||9||Toni Dixon was one of 14 allegedly working alongside Atlantic City Councilman Marty Small to commit absentee ballot fraud. Dixon was charged with 9 counts of voter fraud. Allegedly, voters were asked to apply for absentee ballots, but instead of letting the voters choose their own candidate, a self-proclaimed “secret army” mishandled ballots and even had a “shredding party” to dispose of votes for opposing candidates. Voters were told whom to vote for, never received their ballots — which wound up being cast anyway — or got their applications and ballots at the same time. It was alleged that some voters did not even live in the city, and used fictitious addresses in order to vote. Dixon was acquitted.||Acquitted||http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/395062-new-jersey-dcj-cases-3.html||http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/news/breaking/voter-fraud-charges-dropped-aga...|
|Ohio||Ohio Organizing Collaborative||2015||Registration fraud||Forgery||In October 2015, the Ohio Secretary of State's office received reports from county boards of elections about suspicious voter registration forms submitted by employees of the Ohio Organizing Collaborative. Boards have described significant irregularities among the applications, including voter registration forms from persons who are deceased, voter registration forms with multiple names, address or identification mismatches, and voter registration update forms that appear to have been signed by someone other than the voter. The cases were referred to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investiations.||http://www.sos.state.oh.us/SOS/Upload/elections/advisories/2015/Adv2015-07.pdf||http://wkbn.com/2015/10/29/ohio-bci-investigating-potential-voter-fraud-in-two-c...||http://wkbn.com/2015/10/16/bci-investigating-reports-of-voter-fraud-in-columbian...|

|Minnesota||Ineligible felon voters (1,099)||2008-11||General||2010+||Ineligible felon voting||243||Minnesota Majority identified 1,099 ineligible felons who voted in the November 2008 U.S. Senate election, which was eventually decided by 312 votes, by comparing criminal records with voting rolls. Minnesota Majority took the information to prosecutors across the state. Many were not interested in pursuing the cases, but Minnesota law requires authorities to investigate such leads. As of 2012, 177 ineligible felon voters had been convicted of voting fraudulently in the Senate race, and another 66 were awaiting trial. Many of the ineligible felons avoided conviction by saying they didn't 'knowingly' vote unlawfully. While some ineligible felon voters registered in advance of the election and should have been flagged for challenge, the overwhelming majority who evaded detection used Election Day Registration, which currently has no mechanism to detect or prevent ineligible voters.||http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/york-when-1099-felons-vote-in-race-won-by-312-...||http://www.electionintegritywatch.com/documents/2011-Report-Voter-Fraud-Convicti...||http://www.mnvoters.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=266%3Amva-p...|

|Mississippi||Election Contest: Dave Ware v, Johnny DuPree||2013-06||Hattiesburg Mayoral||Election Contest||Voter impersonation||Ineligible felon voting||In the June 4, 2013 election for Hattiesburg Mayor, Dave Ware finished 37 votes behind incumbent Johnny DuPree. But that result was marred by a total breakdown in the absentee balloting process and shocking instances of illegal voting. Hundreds of absentee ballots failed to comply with mandatory provisions of Mississippi law. They were counted anyway, giving DuPree well more than his margin of victory. The evidence showed improper influence of absentee voters and lax security and recordkeeping for absentee ballots. One ballot cast by a Ware supporter simply disappeared. A 17-year-old voted absentee from the county jail. A “curbside” voter at the Dixie Pine precinct (someone too disabled to enter the polling place but who voted in person from his vehicle, with help from the poll managers) was actually a healthy 22-year-old man who was in San Antonio, Texas on Election Day. He did not vote, but someone else voted in his name. Disenfranchised felons voted, even though their prior crimes made them ineligible. Sheriff’s personnel carried one of those voters from jail to vote in person on June 4. At least four ineligible felons voted. The trial itself involved allegations of witness intimidation, jury “retaliation,” and a 9-3 verdict for Ware that somehow devolved into a deadlocked 8-4 vote.||New election ordered||http://hottytoddy.com/2013/08/21/big-wins-of-integrity-of-the-vote/|
