‘Voting irregularity’ in last election being investigated



Published: Fri, May 6, 2011 @ 4:39 p.m.

The Mahoning County Board of Elections and sheriff’s department are investigating “allegations of voting irregularity” in the recent primary, said Thomas McCabe, the board’s director.

The issue involves at least 35 absentee ballots improperly submitted to the board, but there could be more, he said. The board and the sheriff’s department are looking at who turned in the votes and the board employee or employees who accepted them, McCabe said today.

“We know it didn’t affect the outcome of the election,” said McCabe, who declined to disclose the names of those being investigated.

Elections officials have contacted most of the voters of the questionable absentee ballots. Those voters said they filled out the ballot.

There are restrictions as to who can submit absentee ballots, McCabe said.
