DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Elections officials in a southwest Ohio county are investigating what they suspect is a case of attempted voter registration fraud.
The Dayton Daily News reports ( http://bit.ly/Rv4HiD ) that the Montgomery County Board of Elections received more than 100 questionable registration cards from one organization, and that many appear to have false or nonexistent addresses.
Elections Director Betty Smith says the registrations came from The Ohio Organizing Campaign. A spokeswoman says the group is working hard to maintain quality control in voter registration efforts and is cooperating with officials. She and Smith say the parties believe the suspect cards came from the same person.
Smith says the group turned in hundreds of registration cards in July, and the board of elections staff began a normal review and found faulty addresses.
