The integrity of elections is at stake because of voter fraud, say some county supervisors
Unfortunately, there is not much the county can do to check irregularities that isn't already being done.
"We have vast election fraud going on in this county," Supervisor Joe Maruca said.
He later added, "One day, they're going to steal an election. If we don't do something, it's just going to get worse."
The supervisors discussed the issue during a committee of the whole meeting Monday after a visit during last week's Board of Supervisors meeting from Richard Ciaramella, chief investigator with the secretary of state's election division.
Ciaramella spoke to the board after Maruca expressed concern over what appeared to be instances of an excessive number of registered voters at a single residence and alleged voter registration and absentee ballot irregularities.
