DA's office on lookout for election fraud
Did you see some suspiciously assisted voting? Did you or someone else have trouble casting your ballot? Witness some bullying inside or outside the polling place? Bribery? Did you see a dead person cast a vote?
Election fraud takes many forms.
Call the District Attorney’s election fraud task force tomorrow if you see something weird. Store the hotline numbers in your phone now: (215) 686-9641, 9643 and 9644.
A joint effort with the Committee of Seventy, the DA’s task force has more than 60 assistant district attorneys and a few dozen detectives on call. On your average election day, the task force deals with allegations of illegal voting, candidate write-in issues, and illegal electioneering from poll workers.
“There’s nothing more important in our democracy than voters’ confidence in the integrity of the election process,” David Thornburgh, Committee of Seventy CEO, said in a statement. “ The continued vigilance of the DA’s office in responding to complaints is crucial to sustaining that confidence.”
