The conservative organization “True the Vote” was trying to place election observers at precincts in central Ohio, mainly “focusing on African American districts”. But the local election board discovered that they had forged the candidate signatures that are required to allow observers to gain access to polling stations.
One election board member said he was “amazed that a group that goes to such extreme lengths to claim voting fraud in Ohio would knowingly forge or misuse signatures to try to gain access to Franklin County polling locations.” The board (made up of both Republicans and Democrats) unanimously rejected the forms and will not allow True the Vote access to polling locations.
Printed on the forms containing the forged signatures is the statement that “election falsification is a 5th degree felony”. What does it tell you when a group claiming to be trying to prevent voting fraud purposely commits felony-level fraud?
