|Hawaii||Brian Minaai||Ross Segawa Debra Kawaoka Clifford Uwainewas||M||1982||Democratic primary||D||1983-02||Registration fraud||1||Brian Minaai pleaded* guilty to a misdemeanor in the 1982 Democrat primary. Prosecutors found that 27 participated in a scheme to illegally register Honolulu voters in order to boost Democrat candidate Ross Segawa, a student in the University law school, into the District 19 state House seat that encompassed Manoa, where the university’s main campus is located. The students, including some working in the Legislature or attending the university’s law school, were caught when Segawa’s opponent noticed that some of Segawa’s youthful supporters claimed they lived at the Arcadia Retirement Residence on their voter registration forms. They recruited people from outside the 19th district – a total of 32 known names – and used false addresses to register them on the 19th district rolls.||*Plea deal: Criminal record to be wiped clean within a year||http://www.hawaiireporter.com/university-of-hawaii-procurement-officer-involved-...||http://www.nytimes.com/1983/02/13/us/around-the-nation-hawaii-state-senator-accu...|

|Ohio||Unnamed Resident||2012-11||General||Multiple voting||In person||1||Auglaize County officials are looking into possible voter fraud after discovering one resident may have voted twice in the Nov. 6, 2012 election. Board of elections director Carolyn Campbell said staff members go from precinct to precinct after each election to count every ballot and verify every signature. During that process after the general election, they discovered one person may have voted in two different precincts. Because of the ongoing investigation, Campbell could not release the name of the voter or the precincts. The voter will face felony charges if officials determine there is enough evidence for fraud. After discovering the double vote, Campbell brought the issue to the board, who agreed to turn the issue over to the sheriff's department and the prosecuting attorney. If the investigation finds the fraud was a result of poll worker negligence, the poll worker likely would not be allowed to work the polls the following year.||http://www.dailystandard.com/archive/2012-12-14/stories/19825/possible-voter-fra...|
