Statement on indictments in election fraud probe

The State Board of Elections commends Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman, her staff and the State Bureau of Investigation for their efforts in bringing this serious election fraud from 2016 and the 2018 primary election to prosecution.

State Board staff investigated and identified absentee voting irregularities in 2016 and forwarded its findings to state and federal authorities. This agency will continue to support efforts to prosecute coordinated election fraud in North Carolina, including activities during the 2018 elections.

“These indictments should serve as a stern warning to anyone trying to defraud elections in North Carolina,” said Kim Westbrook Strach, State Board executive director. “Today is a new and better day for elections in our state.”

The State Board will send staff members to Bladen and Robeson counties ahead of the new election in the 9th Congressional District to monitor and assist with the elections process. The State Board will meet Monday (March 4) to set a calendar for a new election in the 9th Congressional District.
