Voter registration fraud
Some examples as ways to commit fraud in the voter registration process include:
- Filling out and submitting a voter registration card for a fictional (made-up) person. The made-up name on the card can be recognizable ("Mickey Mouse") or just a random made-up name, like "Jessica Random."
- Filling out a voter registration card with the name of a real person, but without that person's consent, and forging his or her signature on the card.
