HASTINGS, Mich. — Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf is asking voters to hand over any ballot applications sent to the wrong address.
Sheriff Leaf notified Barry County through Facebook he had received a ballot application at his home for someone who not only hadn't lived there in two decades but was also dead.
"This creates a problem with Sheriff's Offices across the state because we are tasked with investigating voter fraud." Leaf posted. "Our township, city and county clerks have the most up-to-date registered voter lists."
Leaf says anyone who gets someone else's ballot application should turn it over to police so they can protect the public from possible voter fraud.
