Using an interstate database, Arizona officials have found nine new cases of people voting in more than one state in the 2008 presidential election, Secretary of State Ken Bennett said Tuesday.
Bennett, speaking at an event hosted by Catholic Charities Community Services as part of National Voter Registration Day, said that although voter fraud is statistically rare in Arizona elections officials are on the lookout for it.
“In addition to helping people get registered to vote and encouraging everyone to vote, we want everyone to vote once,” Bennett said.
