FORT WORTH, Texas - Texas is looking into claims of voter fraud in Tarrant County.
The investigation is focusing on mail-in ballots from the March primaries. Backers of stronger voter ID laws say this has been a problem for years.
“There were signatures, the same person’s signature multiple times… three or four different times, where it was painfully obvious that this wasn’t the same signature repeatedly,” said Tim O’Hare, the Tarrant County Republican Party chairman.
“He says he has proof of people marking ballots. I am not aware of any of that. You know, if we had it, we would investigate it because we want the election to be fair and honest,” said Deborah Peoples, the Democratic Party chairwoman in Tarrant County.
The Tarrant County elections administrator is not commenting on the issue.
Judge Glen Whitley told the Fort Worth Star Telegram the problem can be corrected by doing away with mail-in ballots.
