Ohio Voter Audit Finds Over 350 Non-Citizens Cast Ballots In 2018
Friday, December 6, 2019
In an investigation handled by Ohio’s elections chief, released information on Wednesday that more than 350 apparent non-citizens registered to vote or cast a ballot for last year's election. Ohio Republican Secretary of State, Frank LaRose stated that of those found, 77 cast ballots and 277 simply registered.
The state of Ohio does not maintain a comprehensive database of all non-citizens in the state, so LaRose’s office cross-matched voter records against citizenship statuses reported to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Ohio has more than 8 million registered voters, and does not allow non-citizens to register or vote.
LaRose said he has handed the list of names over to Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost for further investigation and potential prosecution.
