State Police conduct raid related to voter fraud

INDIANAPOLIS -- Officers with the Indiana State Police conducted a raid Tuesday morning to combat voter registration fraud in Indiana.

Officers from all over the state were at a business at the 2500 block of N. Meridian Avenue, investigating reports of voter registration fraud.

Police haven't said whether any arrests were made in the raid.

The reports began in Hendricks and Marion counties, but now include Allen, Delaware, Hamilton Hancock, Johnson, Lake and Madison counties.

In response to the police raid, Patriot Majority USA President Craig Varoga said on Tuesday:

“After all is said and done, when this partisan investigation finds no wrongdoing by the organization, Connie Lawson and the Indiana State Police will have prevented 45,000 African Americans from voting in this year’s elections.  That is why today we reported their outrageous actions to the Department of Justice.”

Police say victims of the fraud may not know they've been affected until they go to vote, only to realize their information has been altered.

If you are affected, you'll need to cast a provisional ballot.
