House GOP leaders issue statement on Fairfax County dual voter case

state-capitol2Virginia House of Delegates Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford), Majority Leader Kirk Cox (R-Colonial Heights), Chairman Timothy D. Hugo (R-Fairfax), Majority Whip Jackson H. Miller (R-Manassas), and Deputy Majority Leader Todd Gilbert (R-Shenandoah) issued the following statement Tuesday on a report that 17 individuals cast ballots in both Virginia and Maryland during the 2012 Presidential election.
 
“We are deeply concerned by allegations that more than a dozen voters in Fairfax County cast multiple ballots in the 2012 presidential election. These are alarming allegations that, if true, could undermine the integrity of our electoral processes.
 
“We applaud the Fairfax County Electoral Board for its diligence in checking and monitoring voter records, and thank the Board for presenting this case to federal, state, and local law enforcement. Electoral Boards bear enormous responsibility to maintain fair and transparent elections. In this case, the Fairfax County Electoral Board has upheld its commitment to the people of Fairfax and the Commonwealth of Virginia by appropriately referring this case to law enforcement for investigation.
 
“The seriousness of these disconcerting allegations cannot be overstated. Open access to and the integrity of the ballot box are critical to the success of our electoral process and the representative government that flows from it. As Americans, we all share a deep and abiding obligation to protect this process. As elected leaders, we take that responsibility seriously and are committed to upholding the rule of law. We will monitor this case closely over the coming days and weeks.”
