Indiana state election officials have uncovered evidence of voter fraud – finding thousands of registration forms with first names and birth dates that have been tampered with.
The Indianapolis Star reported Secretary of State Connie Lawson characterized the changes as "voter fraud" and turned over the findings to state police.
According to Lawson, when some voters checked online with the Statewide Voter Registration System to see if they were registered, they could not get access; further investigation discovered their first names or birth dates had been changed, the Star reported.
"At this time, my office is not sure why these records were changed, but we have evaluated the Statewide Voter Registration System and have found no indication it has been compromised," she said in a news release.
A spokeswoman would not say how many forms were changed, but it was higher than in past elections, the Star reported.
According to the Star, state police are separately investigating alleged voter fraud connected to the voter registration efforts of Patriot Majority USA, a group that has launched radio and newspaper ads in black-oriented markets, accusing Gov. Mike Pence and state police of voter suppression. The allegations have been denied.
