|New York||Benjamen Hodzic||M||2014-05||Catskill school board||2014-05||In person||Impersonation||Forgery||2||1||Benjamen Hodzic of Catskill was charged with voter fraud for imperonating another voter in the May 20, 2014 Catskill School District Board of Education election. He was arrested one day after the election by the Village of Catskill Police Department. Hodzic was charged with one count of second degree forgery, in which the person falsely makes, completes, or alters a written instrument which is calculated to become or to represent a public record filed, or required by law to be filed, in or with a public office or public servant, and which is a class D felony. Hodzic was also charged with one count of second degree criminal impersonation of another person with intent to obtain a benefit, a class A misdemeanor. Hodzic allegedly signed in as his brother on the registration roll, cast the votes, and was later recognized and verified as not being on the registration roll. Catskill Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Farrell said Wednesday the district reported the matter to village police immediately. He was arraigned in Catskill Village Court and released on his own recognizance. Candidate Michael J. Lanuto Jr., who lost his bid for a seat at the board of education table by only 11 votes, said he has concerns that whatever improper ballot he cast now remains impossible to separate out and disallow.||http://www.thedailymail.net/news/article_25d71890-e6f2-11e3-accf-0019bb2963f4.ht...|

|Connecticut||Lonnie Reed||F||2005-11||Ineligible district voting||A complaint was brought against Lonnie Reed alleging that she was not a resident of the town where she cast her ballot. Reed sold her Branford home, where she had lived for 25 years, seven days before an election and was living at the home of friends who lived in the same town. Although she tried to buy a home in the same district, she ultimately moved to an address in District 4. The Connecticut Elections Enforcement Commission investigation concluded that because Reed had the intention of buying a house in District 5 at the time of the election, she was not guilty of fraud. The complaint was dismissed.||Dismissed||http://seec.ct.gov/e2casebase/data/fd/2007_158.pdf|
