What began as an investigation into voter fraud issues in 9 Indiana counties, had now expanded to 56, according to Fox59. The Governor of Indiana urged all voters to double check their registration information after a group called the Indiana Voter registration Project turned in forged registrations.
Indiana Voter Registration Project
Fox 59 reported on 9-15,
A group called the Indiana Voter Registration Project has turned in forged voter registration forms. The group was altering the information of voters who had already registered, changing addresses without the voters’ knowledge or consent, according to officials…
The investigation into the fraud started in Hendricks County about three weeks ago when election staff there noticed incomplete forms and signatures that didn’t match up. Police said the probe expanded to include false voter information in Marion County.
“It appeared there were some actual fraudulent voter registrations. We’ve determined at least ten at this time, and we are continuing our investigation,” said Bursten.
Fake registrations could strip someone of their vote or even give a person the ability to cast multiple ballots.
An alert clerk
The discovery of the fraud originally came from an alert Hendricks County clerk, who noticed discrepancies on some of the forms. She notified authorities, and the investigation began.
The fraud consisted of “made-up names and addresses, real names with made up or incorrect addresses and false dates of births with real names” or combinations of all of those.
This fraud comes just before the October 11 deadline to register. Officials are unable to determine just how many people have been affected by this issue, so are asking everyone to go over their registration forms and check for anything that looks suspicious. If a resident finds anything, they should contact the Secretary of State’s Office at 1-866-IN-1-Vote (1-866-461-8683).
Offices of the Indiana Voter Registration Project were raided by police on October 4. It was then that they discovered the problem was far more widespread than just 9 counties.
The corrupt group ALMOST got away with it.
