Absentee Voting Can Lead to Fraud

Laramie, Wy – A nationwide investigation shows that absentee voting has led to fraud in at least 15 states. The New York Times did the investigation but did not find wrongdoing in Wyoming. The Equality State Policy Center's Sarah Gorin, says there are safeguards in this state that don't exist elsewhere but she says there is a possibility of voter fraud here. And she says that could affect local and even federal elections.
Gorin says Wyoming could shore up its system by spending more money on voter technologies and by removing deceased people from voting lists.
