Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange is warning against voter fraud ahead of the state's June primary elections, promising that those caught will be prosecuted.
Under state law, it is a felony to:
willfully alter the vote on someone else's absentee ballot
willfully cast more than one absentee ballot in the same election
willfully vote in someone else's name or falsify absentee ballot documents, or to
solicit or encourage illegal absentee voting activities.
If caught committing absentee ballot fraud, those responsible could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $15,000.
If you suspect voter fraud, you can file a report with the Secretary of State's Office.
