COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio's elections chief says he's wrapped up a review by county election boards across the swing state into allegations of voter fraud during the 2012 presidential election.
Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted plans on Thursday to release the probe's findings after a statewide look he ordered in January. He required all testimony to be taken under oath and restricted sworn statements only to firsthand accounts, as a way of cutting down on the spread of rumors.
Husted hoped the forum would identify legitimate concerns and reassure the public about the integrity of elections.
Democrats criticize Husted for repeated violations of voters' rights.
Husted initially said the investigation would also include complaints of alleged voter suppression, but the announcement of Thursday's event made no mention of the issue.
