Connecticut Janelle Rooks F Registration Fraud A complaint was made that Richard Murray, Neill Bovaird, Kelly Way, Nancy Pilon, Janelle Rooks, M. Samantha Geiger, Amy Bovaird, Peter Nygard, Shannon Nygard and Angela Harwood were registered and in some cases voted in a place where they did not reside. An Election Commission investigation found that the defendants had registered in good faith with the belief that they did reside in the district in which they registered. The Commission found that had the Registrar's office been more thorough and done their due diligence, it would have found that the addresses provided were not within the required district and the voter registrations/voting would not have occurred. Not charged http://seec.ct.gov/e2casebase/data/fd/FD_2010_073.pdf

Texas Election Contest: Gilberto Perez v. Oziel Treviño 2016-06 Hidalgo municipal runoff Election contest Absentee/Mail Illegal assistance 6 A judge ordered a new election to be held for Hidalgo City Council Place 5 after candidate Gilberto Perez successfully contested the results, proving that campaign workers aligned with his opponent, incumbent councilman Oziel Treviño, gave voters illegal assistance with mail-in ballots in the June 2016 runoff election and that non-residents and ineligible people cast ballots in the Place 5 race. Perez lost the seat to Trevino by just six votes in the runoff election. Most witnesses testified that they received voting assistance when they did not actually require assistance and that campaign workers insisted they vote for the slate sponsored by city councilman Rudy Franz. One person testified they were paid by a campaign worker to register others at her home who did not live in the city of Hidalgo.
