Michigan officials investigating absentee ballot voter fraud allegations

Criminal charges are possible in an absentee ballot fraud investigation in Dearborn Heights:

 

In a letter Friday, Sally Williams, a director with the Michigan Bureau of Elections, said that based on information the state has received, “it appears clear that hundreds of AV (absent voter) ballot requests have been illegally handled, solicited from voters and submitted to the clerk’s office by a small number of individuals. The investigation of these issues is ongoing and may result in criminal charges against those involved… it is a violation of Michigan Election Law for an individual to offer or solicit to return a voter’s AV ballot application to the clerk.”
