|Ohio||Dominique Atkins||F||2010-10||2012-10||Multiple voting||Absentee/mail||1||1||Franklin County resident Dominique Atkins, of 1532 Barnes Drive E was charged with felony voter fraud after the Board of Elections reported that they had voted more than once in a past election. Atkins was indicted by a Franklin County grand jury on one count of illegal voting for voting twice by casting absentee ballots under slightly different names. Atkins was accused of casting a second ballot on Oct. 25, 2010, under the name Dominque Atkins. Elections officials working to clean up voter-registration rolls discovered that the voter had requested, received and returned absentee ballots in both names. Illegal voting is a fourth-degree felony, which can result in up to 18 months in prison for a conviction. But under sentencing reforms, convictions for such offenses bring a sentence of probation if they are non-violent.||http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2012/10/17/3-people-indicted-for-f...|

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