Philadelphia DA: Voter

fraud will be prosecuted

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia’s district attorney says his office will prosecute anyone who harasses voters on Election Day or tries to cast a ballot fraudulently.

Seth Williams said Wednesday that more than 70 attorneys from his office and several dozen detectives are available through the city’s Election Fraud Task Force to take calls and respond to complaints Nov. 8.

The task force was formed in 2014. He says it made eight arrests in past elections for voter fraud.

Williams and city commissioners responsible for overseeing elections say problems encountered in previous elections have typically involved such issues as broken machines, arguments between neighbors and voters going to wrong polling locations.

The president of a city government watchdog group, the Committee of Seventy, says his organization expects a “smooth and boring Election Day.”
