An Indiana University law professor says state officials’ handling of a possible voter fraud investigation threatens the legitimacy of the election. 

An investigation into a group called the Indiana Voter Registration Project has led to accusations of voter fraud from the State Police and Secretary of State.

Patriot Majority USA, the group behind an Indiana voter registration effort currently being investigated by the State Police, wants some records of that investigation unsealed.

More than a month ago, the State Police began investigating the Indiana Voter Registration Project for possible voter fraud.

That came after reports that some registration applications had missing or incorrect information.

The Indiana Democratic Party Thursday accused Secretary of State Connie Lawson of incompetence, partisanship and inflammatory rhetoric surrounding recent voter fraud allegations.

About a month ago, the Indiana State Police began investigating a group called the Indiana Voter Registration Project for possible voter fraud.

That progressive advocacy group then accused state Republicans of inhibiting liberal get-out-the-vote efforts. The police investigation is now in 56 counties.

Thousands of Hoosier voters’ registration information has been changed – leaving many unsure if they’re still registered.

Secretary of State Connie Lawson’s office received complaints from voters who couldn’t find their registration information or discovered that information had been changed.

That includes changes to first names and birth dates.

Lawson’s office says it discovered thousands of records have been altered and has passed that information onto the State Police for an investigation of possible voter fraud.

State police are expanding their investigation into possible cases of voter registration fraud.

It started with registration forms originating in Hendricks and Marion counties but police say they’re now looking at seven additional counties across the state.

Allen, Delaware, Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Lake and Madison Counties are all included in the new investigation.

The Indiana Voter Registration Project is at the center of the investigation.
