Summary This story uncovered the largest double-voting scam of its kind in New York State. The story highlighted a loophole in the state's voter registration system that allows people to be registered to vote in different counties at the same time. The Times Herald-Record found that the lack of safeguards made it possible for individuals' names to be used to vote twice in the same elections in separate counties. Notably, people who suspected voter fraud was occurring had tried to alert authorities to the problem, but no one investigated their allegations. (September 22, 1996)
