Georgia’s state election board has referred nearly 100 cases of voter fraud to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R), some cases of which include individuals voting on behalf of dead people.
Last week, Raffensperger announced that his office had been sent 98 cases of voter fraud, spanning from elections held in 2014 to this year.
“A fraudulent vote dilutes the power of those voters who follow the rules and undermines the fundamental democratic idea of one person, one vote,” Raffensperger said in a statement.
In two cases, investigators allege, individuals voted twice in the 2016 presidential election. Investigators said the individuals “knowingly took advantage of glitches or poll worker errors” in order to double-vote.
Several of the investigations involved potential acts of voter fraud and were referred to the Attorney General’s office for further adjudication.
