Alleged voting fraud probed

Hancock County Prosecutor Phil Riegle says an investigation is underway after the Hancock County Board of Elections provided information to the prosecutor’s office about alleged voting fraud involving three college-age students.

The students apparently misused the absentee ballot process.

Riegle said he could not comment further on the probe.

Jody O’Brien, director of the elections board, said there were three absentee ballots with “irregularities” which were turned over to the prosecutor.
