Caught in the Act

Last month, five Starr and Hidalgo county residents were indicted of voter fraud on allegations of conducting an illegal mail-in ballot scheme, according to a press release from the Texas Attorney General’s Office. The five allegedly of used false addresses and the names of nonexistent Starr County voters to illegally obtain voter registration cards.

By obtaining voter registration cards, they were able to complete mail-in application ballots and vote in the 2006 primary elections.

The group faces more than 50 counts of processing the ballot of another person without consent, the Attorney General’s Office reported.
