Connecticut Alicia Primer F 2006-08 2006-09 2006-11 Democratic Primary (CT) Democratic Primary (MA) State (CT) D Multiple Voting Registration Fraud Ineligible District Voting 2 An investigation by the Connecticut State Elections Enforcement Commission determined that Primer voted in August 2006, September 2006 and November 2006 in Weston, Massachusetts and Groton, Connecticut, even though her primary residence was in Weston, Massachusetts. Primer's vote in the August 2006 race for state representative resulted in a tie. The tie was settled by a flip of a coin. Had Primer not voted, the tie would not have occurred. Based on the lack of a prior record and cooperation with investigators, the State of Connecticut State Elections Enforcement Commission didn't refer her case for criminal prosecution, even though it found she violated the law by registering to vote in Connecticut while registered in Massachusetts, and subsequently voting twice in Connecticut. $4,000 fine and ordered to follow state elections law. http://seec.ct.gov/e2casebase/data/fd/2007_227.pdf
