|New Jersey||Toni Dixon||Marty Small Ernest Storr Tracy Pijuan Luquay Zahir Floyd Tally David Callaway Dameka Cross Mark Crumble Michele Griffin Ramona Stephens Demaris Jones Ronald Harris||2009||Municipal - Democratic primary||2009-09||Absentee Ballot Fraud||9||Toni Dixon was one of 14 allegedly working alongside Atlantic City Councilman Marty Small to commit absentee ballot fraud. Dixon 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. Dixon was acquitted.||Acquitted||http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/395062-new-jersey-dcj-cases-3.html||http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/news/breaking/voter-fraud-charges-dropped-aga...|
