Illinois Unidentified (multiple) 2016-03 Primary Absentee/mail 4 A voter fraud investigation is underway after a Washington Park voter showed up to cast her ballot early in the March 2016 primary to find someone had already submitted a mail-in ballot under her name. The St. Clair County State’s Attorney received credible information that at least four voters attempted to vote early in person only to find that someone had voted by mail already under his or her name. Two voters also reported being asked to provide blank ballots by individuals in the East St. Louis area. In addition, state’s attorney’s investigators have confirmed that four applications for mail-in ballots are invalid because the address listed on the application is of an abandoned house. The county clerk’s office has denied the application for those ballots and removed those registrations from the voter rolls. The sites are all within the area of two contest primary races: County Board District 2 and Canteen Precinct 3. http://www.bnd.com/news/local/article64566302.html

Ohio Election contest: Dennis Flores v. Ryan Horn 2015-05 Democratic primary D 2015-07 Registration fraud Ineligible district voting Vote buying The integrity of the election process was compromised during the May Democratic primary contest that saw Lorain City Councilman Dennis Flores lose his re-election bid in the 2nd Ward race to challenger Ryan Horn by one vote, Flores’ attorney said during opening statements Tuesday in a trial that could overturn those results. The allegations include false registration, bribery, illegal voting, inducing illegal voting and making false signatures. Attorney Gerald Phillips told county Common Pleas Judge Mark Betleski that the “substantial irregularities” don’t appear to have come from how the county Board of Elections ran the election. Instead, Phillips argued, “a number of electors unlawfully, illegally voted for Mr. Horn.” Effectively, Horn’s father, bail bondsman Tony Horn, “bought the election, he rigged the election in favor of his son,” Phillips said. On the night of the election, Flores was in the lead by a vote of 151 to 131, according to unofficial elections results, but when provisional ballots were counted, Horn pulled ahead with a total of 153 votes to 152 votes for Flores. A third candidate in the race, Joseph Smith, received a total of 100 votes… Phillips and Flores have raised questions about whether several people who cast ballots in the race actually lived where they claimed to live and whether those people claimed addresses owned by Tony Horn or his associates. http://www.morningjournal.com/general-news/20150707/lawyers-spar-over-lorains-wa... http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2015/07/08/lorain-council-election-suit-put-o...
