Carefully Planned Election Day Fraud is an Insult to Voters and Election Officials in New Hampshire

Concord, N.H.--The out-of-state con artists depicted in the video committed serious fraud, and the League of Women Voters of New Hampshire urges the Attorney General to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. The League of Women Voters supports the integrity of elections and trusts in the competence of our local election officials. The fraud shown on the video was carefully manufactured to make it appear that New Hampshire doesn’t have a system of checks and balances in place to protect our votes.  That is not the case. The only thing this video shows is that those with time, resources and criminal intent and with no respect for the fundamental laws of our nation can sometimes deceive our neighbors who work as election officials. There is no reason to believe that New Hampshire citizens engage in such un-American behavior. The League extends its sympathy to the families of the recently deceased whose names were used so callously.
