Voter fraud suspected in Coffee County

June 13, 2006

Douglas - The election's supervisor in Coffee County suspects someone is illegally filling out absentee ballots. Kim Evans says she's received 80 applications for absentee ballots within the past three days.  They were all filled out with the same handwriting, but signed by different people.

She says the voters did sign their own application, but the person assisting, did not. All the applications are in district one, and Evans thinks someone wants to influence the Sheriff's race with the votes.  She says, "If you've received a ballot from me, it's your ballot. You vote how you want to. It they want to vote your ballot, call the law."  

Evans says she's investigating the possibility of fraud.
