|North Carolina||Dianna Lightfoot||F||R||Registration fraud - ineligible address||Ineligible district voting||Dianna Lightfoot registered to vote using an address of a UPS store. Public records from the N.C. State Board of Elections show Lightfoot registered to vote at her mailing address, instead of her residential address. Board of Elections rules clearly state that voters must provide a residential address to register to vote. Falsifying voter registration information is considered a Class I Felony. Only one Dianna Lightfoot is registered to vote in the state. That registration is for Dianna L. Lightfoot, 353 Jonestown Road, Winston-Salem. That is the address of a UPS store. Store manager Jared Roper said Lightfoot is a customer at the store and rents a mailbox there. Board of Elections records show Lightfoot registered to vote in Forsyth County in March 2012 as a Republican. Her voting record shows she cast ballots in the May primary, July primary and November general election. Lightfoot’s May and November votes were cast absentee.||http://scrutinyhooligans.us/2013/02/08/looking-for-voter-fraud-tried-right-under...||http://www.journalnow.com/news/local/article_c62b962c-7150-11e2-9626-001a4bcf687...|
