|North Carolina||Unnamed Poll Worker||2010-11||General||Impersonation||In person||1||According to the Lenoir County Board of Elections minutes, during the 2010 general election a poll worker pulled the master list, removed the necessary label, grabbed a ballot and proceeded to vote in place of a member of the family. Details as to the worker, the precinct and the candidate to whom those votes would have gone have not been released. Former LCBOE Chairman Robert Waller said the board was informed of the incident at its Nov. 12, 2010, meeting, and sent the case on to the State Board of Elections. From there, an SBOE investigator pursued the case, taking statements from elections director Dana King and other poll workers. “It’s my understanding that that matter was referred to the D.A. for your prosecutorial district,” SBOE Elections Liaison Veronica Degraffenreid said. District Attorney Branny Vickory said the investigation remains open as of May 2013 but couldn’t say if there will be further action resulting from its findings.||http://www.kinston.com/20130519/local-poll-worker-accused-of-voter-fraud/3051999...|
|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...|
