The number of ineligible felons who voted illegally in the general election in Minnesota is much higher than a government investigation found, according to the government watchdog group Minnesota Majority.

Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner announced to the local press on Oct. 14 that her office had charged 23 felons with illegally voting or registering to vote, saying, “The numbers are very small,” Minnesota Majority said in a news release today accompanying the results of its own research.

Using data obtained from the Minnesota Department of Corrections, Minnesota Majority found evidence that hundreds of ineligible felons may have voted in the 2008 election, the group said.

“I think people should be concerned that most of the instances of felon voter fraud would have never been detected had it not been for our independent research,” said Minnesota Majority President Jeff Davis. “It begs the question of what other problems officials may be missing and how long these problems have gone undetected.”

Election and law enforcement officials failed to detect and prevent felons from voting, the group contends.
