Voter Fraud and Voter Registration Fraud

To be eligible to vote, a person must be a U.S. citizen and have reached the age of 18.

Voter fraud can occur when legally qualified voters vote more than once during an election, when people who are not qualified vote do vote, when a voter’s right to vote is
illegally interfered with, and when a vote is changed without
the knowledge of the person who cast the ballot. It is also
against the law for poll workers in polling stations to interfere with a
person’s legal right to vote or influence how someone votes
(tell someone how to vote).

Voter registration fraud occurs when people register to vote in an area that they are not eligible to vote in, or register when
they know they are not eligible to vote. Examples include: a
person under the age of 18 attempting to register; a person
registering under a false name; a person registering who is not
a U.S. citizen; a person registering in an area where he/she
does not hold a place of residence; or a person registering in
multiple voting districts.

State and local election officials have the responsibility of administrating elections. The first step a person should take to report voter
fraud or voter registration fraud is to contact their
state election office.

Federal authorities may become involved in election fraud matters when a state prosecutor asks for federal assistance. In cases where intimidation, coercion or threats are
made, or attempts to intimidate, threaten or coerce are made to
any person for voting or attempting to vote, federal civil
voting rights claims may be brought by the Voting Section of the Civil Rights
within the Department of Justice (DOJ).

If you have information about voter fraud and/or voter registration fraud, you may also contact the nearest office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)local U.S. Attorney’s
or the Public Integrity Section of the
Criminal Division
within the DOJ.…
