Texas Election contest: Jasen Rabalais v. Michael Papillion 2016-03 Democratic primary D 2016-03 Election contest Voter intimidation/coercion Absentee/mail Harris County constable chief deputy Jasen Rabalais, who narrowly missed making the runoff in the Precinct 3 constable's primary election on March 1,2016, has sued the top two vote-getters, seeking to annul the results because of alleged violations of election law. Rabalais alleged in court papers on March 10 that a campaign worker for Michel Pappillion, a candidate who beat him by 37 votes and edged him out of the runoff, illegally cast votes on behalf of some senior citizens. Sherman Eagleton was the top vote getter by more than 800 votes of more than 18,000 cast, while Rabalais came in third. Eagleton and Pappillion are scheduled to face each other in the May 2016 runoff for the Democratic nomination. Pappillion denied allegations that his campaign violated election law, but declined to say whether he employed the campaign worker, referring questions to his attorney, Andy Taylor. Rabalais' complaint states that the worker initially approached his campaign, offering to "deliver votes from seniors through special access to senior living facilities," guaranteeing 1,000 votes, and Rabalais turned her down. Rabalais supporters noticed the worker at the polls wearing a Pappillion shirt and telling elderly voters that they had already voted, the complaint alleges. The Rabalais campaign confronted the worker, who told them she is a nurse, has access to nursing homes and gets seniors to "vote for that person who [she is] working for," the complaint alleges. The complaint alleges the worker "deliberately falsified, illegally completed, or unlawfully influenced the ballots and early voting applications of elderly residents" in Precinct 3. Rabalais' suit calls for the court to order a new election, subtract illegal votes or "declare the outcome of the election if able to ascertain the true outcome." http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Constable-can...

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
