Indiana Sec. of State reports “thousands” of altered voter registrations

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): The information of thousands of Indiana voters has been changed, according to a report by the Indiana Secretary of State’s Office, in the latest update on an investigation touching Allen and 56 other Counties.

Secretary of State Connie Lawson says they ran a report in the statewide voter registration system after getting complaints from voters who tried to check their registration info and weren’t able to find it.

“(We) found thousands of dates of births and first names were changed. These records were changed on paper forms, at the BMV and online,” Lawson says. “At this time, my office is not sure why these records were changed, but we have evaluated the Statewide Voter Registration System and have found no indication it has been compromised. We believe this may be a case of voter fraud and have turned our findings over to the State Police, who are currently conducting an investigation into alleged voter fraud.”

Voters who can no longer find themselves on are encouraged to contact their local county election officials. The county election offices may be able to find a voter’s record if there is an issue with a voter’s date of birth or first name. Since the voter registration deadline has passed, only the county election offices may be able to assist voters to correct information under limited circumstances.

Voters who find their date of birth or first name is incorrect on their registration will still be able to vote in the General Election on Nov. 8.

All voters are encouraged to vote early to ensure they will not encounter any issues when casting their ballot this year.

Voters with questions can call the Hoosier Voter Hotline at 1-866-IN-1-VOTE.

Of course it is voter fraud, and of course Democrats are responsible. There are no greater criminals in America than Democrats.
