Voter Fraud Case Investigated By Co. Prosecutor

Scott Haselman, Fulton County prosecuting attorney, said Monday his office is still investigating a possible case of voter fraud.

In late March, John Husted, Ohio Secretary of State, said a Fulton County man may have been registered to vote in Ohio and North Carolina.

The man allegedly registered in North Carolina in 2002 and in Ohio in 2006.

Records in both states say the man may have voted in both states in the 2008 and 2010 general elections. Voting in both states would be a fourth-degree felony in Ohio.

Penalties for voter fraud include six to 18 months in prison, plus a fine of up to $5,000.

The Secretary of State offi ce turned the matter over to the office of the State Attorney General.

It has since been referred to the Fulton County prosecutor office for investigation.
