HARRISONBURG (AP) The FBI is looking into whether an organization has been submitting voter registration applications in the names of dead people.
Rockingham County Commonwealth’s Attorney Marsha Garst confirmed in a statement Monday that the unidentified group could be charged with voter registration fraud, the Daily News-Record reported. The FBI and the Harrisonburg Police Department are investigating the case.
Garst says a family member of one of the deceased registrants alerted authorities.
In a statement, Director of Elections Deborah Logan says the case involves “a number” of registration applications.
Officials have declined to release further details into the ongoing investigation.
