INDIANAPOLIS (WANE) – An investigation into the possibility of voter registration fraud by the Indiana State Police is rapidly expanding.
ISP started an investigation in August after the clerk in Hendricks County suspected possible fraud. The investigation, at the time, included Hendricks and Marion counties.
Around ten incorrect registrations were discovered.
On Oct. 4, the investigation expanded to nine total counties – including Allen County. State police said some registration forms included wrong names, addresses, and dates of birth.
At the center of the investigation is a the “Indiana Voter Registration Project.” ISP said earlier this week when the investigation expanded that hundreds of voter registration applications could be in jeopardy.
The investigation now includes the following counties:
Allen County officials told NewsChannel 15 Wednesday that anyone who recently registered to vote should verify their registration. You can do so by checking online at the Indiana Voters website. You can also check with your local registration office in the county for which you reside and vote. If you recently registered, you are not an official registered voter until you receive a card in the mail from the county board of elections.
