Allegations of double voting in Chicago in 2004

As we get ready for our research workshop on election fraud at the end of the month, a friend passed along the following story from CBS News in Chicago, that the Republican Party there is alleging that at least 500 people voted more than once in 2004 in the Chicago area:

(CBS) CHICAGO The Republican Party is putting up evidence that the days of voting early and often in the Chicago area are not quite over.

Rather, local party officials declared, voter fraud is alive and in play.

Cook County Clerk David Orr confirmed on Thursday that there is some indication that at least a handful of voters voted twice in the general election in 2004.

The GOP evidence showed more than 500 cases “of double voting.”

Both the Cook County Board of Elections and the clerk’s office promise thorough investigations.
