|New Jersey||Dameka Cross||Marty Small Ernest Storr Tracy Pijuan Luquay Zahir Floyd Tally David Callaway Toni Dixon Mark Crumble Michele Griffin Ramona Stephens Demaris Jones Ronald Harris||2009||Municipal - Democratic primary||2009-09||Absentee Ballot Fraud||9||Dameka Cross was one of 14 allegedly working alongside Atlantic City Councilman Marty Small to commit absentee ballot fraud. Cross was charged with 9 counts of voter fraud. Allegedly, voters were asked to apply for absentee ballots, but instead of letting the voters choose their own candidate, a self-proclaimed “secret army” mishandled ballots and even had a “shredding party” to dispose of votes for opposing candidates. Voters were told whom to vote for, never received their ballots — which wound up being cast anyway — or got their applications and ballots at the same time. It was alleged that some voters did not even live in the city, and used fictitious addresses in order to vote. Charges against Cross were dismissed.||Dismissed||http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/395062-new-jersey-dcj-cases-3.html||http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/news/breaking/voter-fraud-charges-dropped-aga...|

|Tennessee||Election contest: Terry Roland v. Ophelia Ford||2005-09||Special - state Senate District 29||D||Ineligible district voting||Impersonation - deceased||Forgery||In Tennessee, a September 2005 special election for state Senate District 29 that was decided by only 13 votes led to the expulsion of the winner, Ophelia Ford, from the legislature after it was found that votes had been cast by individuals who were dead at the time of the election, felons whose voting rights had not been restored, voters whose residences were vacant lots, and voters who actually lived outside of the district. Investigator John Harvey found at least 43 voters who did not live in the district but had voted in the election. Three election workers in one precinct were convicted of 12 felonies for faking votes by making false entries on election documents and other misconduct, including forging the signatures of deceased voters on ballot forms and falsely certifying vote totals.||Election overturned by state Senate||https://books.google.com/books?id=90DYC6nfi9gC&pg=RA2-PA2020&lpg=RA2-PA2020&dq=t...|

|Ohio||Unnamed Columbus County voter||2012-11||General||Multiple voting||1||A Columbus County resident could face felony charges of voter fraud for casting a ballot twice in the November 2012 election. The Columbus County Board of Elections met in a special called meeting regarding a voter that officials believe may have cast absentee ballots at two different early voting, one-stop sites. Both ballots were cast under the same name and had identical addresses but the registrations had different dates of birth affiliated with them. One of the ballots was cast at the board of elections headquarters and then another absentee ballot cast at a different one-stop site the next morning. The case may be turned over to the district attorney and/or federal authorities but because it is considered a criminal investigation, County Attorney Mike Stephens advised elections officials in closed session. Stephens referred to the matter as a “duplicate registration” Thursday and was hesitant to make any further details public. Multiple name changes in the voter’s record and even a change in dates of birth contributed to the verification system not detecting the discrepancies, officials say.||http://www.electionlawcenter.com/uncategorized/possible-voter-fraud-under-invest...|

|New York||Dutchess County Democratic Election Commissioner staff||2011||Poughkeepsie primary||D||Absentee/Mail||Ballot tampering||New York State Supreme Court Justice Charles Wood ordered data relating to 40 City of Poughkeepsie 2011 primary election absentee ballots to be returned to its previous status. Republican Dutchess County Elections Commissioner Erik Haight charged one of Democratic Commission Frances Knapp’s staffer “manipulated” data to benefit the Democrats. Haight also asked the Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office to investigate what he believes is voter fraud. “I caught one or more Democratic Board of elections employees manipulating and tampering with data in the system to divert absentee ballots and the court ordered that manipulation was to be undone and it’s a huge victory for the absentee voters in Dutchess County because the votes that were diverted were elderly and disabled people.”||http://www.midhudsonnews.com/News/2011/October/21/DC_BoE_Crt-21Oct11.htm|
