Thousands of Indiana voters can't find registration records

INDIANAPOLIS -- Some Indiana voters have discovered their date of birth or first name is incorrect on their registration, leading the Indiana Secretary of State to believe it's a case of voter fraud.

Secretary of State Connie Lawson said thousands of first names and dates of birth have been changed on paper forms, at the BMV and online. 

In a release, Lawson said her office isn't sure why the records were changed, but doesn't believe the Statewide Voter Registration System was compromised.

"We believe this may be a case of voter fraud and have turned our findings over to the State Police, who are currently conducting an investigation into alleged voter fraud,” Lawson said. 

A spokesman for Indiana State Police says the changing of a first name and/or date of birth, "is consistent with what we are seeing on a number of voter registration applications submitted by Project Majority USA Indiana Voter Registration Project."
