State to Take Control of East Longmeadow Voting

EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WGGB) — In the wake of alleged voter registration fraud in East Longmeadow, the Secretary of State has announced that the state is taking the 2012 voting process in town.

Last week, we told you that the state had begun an investigation into allegations that the political registrations for several residents were changed without their knowledge.

Wednesday afternoon, Secretary of State William Galvin told ABC40 that state investigators did determine that at least some of the hundreds of absentee ballots were filed by someone other than the registered voter.

Galvin says that state officials will be overseeing and controlling the September primary.

Galvin adds that he has not ruled out state involvement in the November general election.

ABC40’s Brendan Monahan spoke with Galvin this afternoon and will have more coming up starting on ABC40 News at 5:00 p.m.
