MONTGOMERY, AL - Secretary of State
Beth Chapman is informing voters of allegations of voter fraud prior to the
primary election on June 1. So far, the office has received complaints of
reported voter fraud from Greene, Macon, Perry and Wilcox counties.
The Voter Fraud Unit of the
Secretary of State’s office has been in contact with the United States
Department of Justice regarding these allegations and has worked in conjunction
with all efforts to stop voter fraud statewide. Additionally, Secretary
Chapman has requested the maximum number of federal agents and poll observers
for the upcoming elections, including the June 1st primary.
“Voter fraud undermines the
fundamental rights of democracy,” said Chapman. “In order for a healthy
republic to survive, we must remember the principle of ‘one person, one
vote’. The days of public officials being chosen in smoke-filled backrooms
are gone. We will continue to battle voter fraud statewide and shine light
on this deep, dark practice.”
