DuPAGE CO.-DuPage County prosecutors are investigating three potential cases of voter fraud tied to mail-in ballots allegedly requested for people who are dead.
State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said his office has already investigated six other cases of potential mail-in-ballot fraud and concluded no charges would be filed in those cases.
Each of the cases alleges that the DuPage County clerk’s office received a request for a mail-in ballot from a county resident who is no longer alive, Berlin said in a statement. The requests were received between Sept. 1 and Sept. 26.
DuPage County is a collar county of Cook County (you know, where Chicago is):
Cook County has some issues with (un)dead voters as well:
CHICAGO (CBS) — Susie Sallee was buried in 1998. Yet records show she voted in Chicago 12 years later.
Victor Crosswell died in 1994, but records show he’s voted six times since then.
And then there’s Floyd Stevens. Records show he’s voted 11 times since his death in 1993.
“It’s crazy,” Sharon Stevens Anderson, Stevens’ daughter, tells CBS 2’s Pam Zekman. “I don’t see how people can be able to do something like that and get away with it.”
Those are just a few of the cases CBS 2 Investigators found by merging Chicago Board of Election voter histories with the death master file from the Social Security Administration.
In all, the analysis showed 119 dead people have voted a total of 229 times in Chicago in the last decade.
Beware of zombie voters. They vote blue and are migrating away from Cook County.
