Colonel Richie Johnson, WBR Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said that the Secretary of State’s office contacted WBRSO to investigate the matter after receiving a report of an unusually high number of applications for absentee by mail ballots that streamed in within the first couple of days of the early voting period for the mayoral election as well as reports that one or more constituents attempted to vote in person after a mail-in ballot had already been submitted in their name.
