CHEYENNE – The Laramie County Clerk’s office has uncovered up to 27 potential cases of local voter registration fraud related to the Nov. 8 election.
The potential fraud was discovered earlier this month as clerk employees submitted Election Day registrations to the Wyoming Secretary of State’s statewide voter database. That database is synced to other databases maintained by agencies like the Department of Transportation and the Department of Corrections, and flagged registrations as they were entered.
Of the 27 cases, 11 were flagged for potentially being felons, while 16 were flagged as potential non-citizens. The names have been handed over to Laramie County DA Jeremiah Sandburg, who has asked the Laramie County Sheriff’s Department to investigate.
