MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - FOX10 News continues to dig for answers in an investigation involving possible voter fraud through the USPIS.
Despite the end of a very heated mayoral election, postal inspectors based out of northern Alabama continue to ignore phone calls and e-mails since we uncovered the story Friday, August, 23.
FOX10 also continues to reach out to USPIS headquarters for comment, but we have still received no reply.
Although postal inspectors are not talking about their case, local election officials are opening up about voter fraud in Mobile.
A source close to the Mobile municipal election confirmed at least one case of voter fraud; that is not believed to be connected to the USPIS investigation.
Officials said the case involves a college student who fraudulently voted and signed her roommate’s absentee ballot before mailing it in.
Officials said they will be handing the case over to the Mobile County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days for prosecution.
Postal Inspector’s first confirmed last week that they were investigating “suspicious activity” involving numerous absentee ballots and people who were mailing them out almost daily.
It is unclear why postal inspectors found the packages to be suspicious.
FOX10 News will stay on the case and take our questions to supervisors beyond area-inspectors.
We will also continue to follow and bring you updates in the local student mail fraud case.
