Maricopa County Man Sought For Illegal Voting Charge

Associated Press

The New Hampshire attorney general's office says an arrest warrant has been issued for a 75-year-old man who is charged with voting in two states in the 2016 general election. The state announced Monday that the warrant alleges that Sigmund Boganski, of Maricopa County, Arizona, and New Hampton, New Hampshire, voted in both states four years ago. New Hampshire officials say Boganski knowingly cast a ballot in the state after he had already cast a ballot in Arizona. No phone number for Boganski could be found on Monday. 

The warrant does not specify whether Boganski voted in person or by mail in either state.

Over the summer, an analysis of mail-in ballots by the Washington Post and the Electronic Registration Information Center found voter fraud to be relatively rare. The analysis found about 0.0025 percent of ballots in the 2016 and 2018 general elections reflected possible voter fraud.
