Review finds 24 suspected voter fraud cases

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Election Commission says its statewide review of elections in the past year have turned up two dozen cases of suspected voter fraud or irregularities.

The State Journal says the violations include people voting twice in an election, felons casting ballots and a non-citizen voting. The possible cases are just a tiny fraction of the 2.7 million votes cast in the November midterm elections.

Municipal clerks are required to report the cases to the commission and county district attorneys, who decide whether to pursue the suspected fraud.

The cases of possible voter fraud happened between Feb. 16, 2018 and Feb. 15, 2019. The year before, seven potential voter fraud cases were found.
