CINCINNATI - Elections officials in southwestern Ohio's Hamilton County will issue more than two dozen subpoenas as an investigation into possible voter fraud during November's election heats up.
The Cincinnati Enquirer ( http://cin.ci/11pnfXF ) reports the four-member Hamilton County Board of Elections decided Tuesday by a unanimous vote to issue 28 subpoenas and set two hearings later this month.
The hearings will be a final opportunity for voters to provide explanations before the cases are turned over to prosecutors for possible criminal charges.
The cases include a poll worker who may have falsified votes, a woman whose absentee ballot was sent to her several days after she died and a Florida resident who tried to use her old Cincinnati-area address to vote in Hamilton County.
