|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...|

|North Carolina||Contested Election: Greg Cummings vs. Allen Dial||2015-11||Pembroke municipal||Contested Election||Ineligible district voting||The State Board of Elections granted a new election for mayor of Pembroke, due to voter “irregularities," possible fraud and “systematic” errors made by the Robeson County Board of Elections. Allen Dial, a former town councilman, has not taken the oath of office as mayor because of residency challenges filed by Greg Cummings, the second-highest vote-getter in the race. Cummings, who finished 11 votes behind Dial, had challenged the residencies of 24 voters. At a hearing before the local board of elections, Cummings was able to show 11 of the challenged voters were ineligible to vote because they did not live at the addresses they gave when they cast their ballots.||New election ordered.||https://robesonian.com/news/83625/2-new-elections-ordered||http://www.fayobserver.com/news/local/new-elections-ordered-for-pembroke-mayor-o...||http://robesonian.com/opinion/82507/pembroke-election-flunks-smell-test|
