Dallas County DA Investigating Mail-In Ballot Applications For Possible Fraud

The applications are from the same areas where voter fraud was suspected in last year’s municipal elections

Dallas County prosecutors are investigating possible fraud regarding more than 1,200 mail-in ballot applications for the 2018 elections. 

The applications from West Dallas, Grand Prairie and parts of the Oak Cliff area of Dallas are from the same areas where voter fraud was suspected in last year’s municipal elections.

The applications were turned over to the district attorney after warning signs were seen. For example, some of the applications were filled out last fall, but weren’t submitted for a mail-in ballot until January and February.

And according to the Dallas Morning News, four of the potential voters on the suspicious applications were dead — one of them for several years.

No one’s been accused of a crime, and no voter, so far, has complained of mail-in ballot abuse.
