COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio’s elections chief will release findings on Thursday about a statewide investigation into allegations of voter fraud during the 2012 presidential election, some of which occurred in Hamilton County.
Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted is set to discuss the findings during a conference in Columbus. Husted’s office worked with county boards of elections to investigate the allegations of voter fraud.
There were six cases of alleged voter fraud in Hamilton County from the 2012 General Election. Among the cases is Madisonville poll worker Melowese Richardson, who voted twice in the 2012 presidential election and may have cast ballots for seven others, according to a grand jury indictment.
Sister Marguerite Kloos, a former dean at the College of Mount St. Joseph, pleaded guilty to voter fraud after she admitted forging her roommate’s signature and submitting an absentee ballot after her roommate died, according to the prosecutor's office.
Russell Glassop is accused of submitting his wife’s absentee ballot after she passed away.
The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 45 new cases of potential voter fraud involving residents who used U.S. post office branches when registering to vote in last November’s election.
The press conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. at Husted’s office located at 180 East Broad Street in Columbus.
