Voting Officials Investigate Thousands of Duplicate VA Voters Registrations


RICHMOND, VA. (WVVA) -An investigation is underway after a database review reveals that thousands of Virginia voters are registered in other states. 

The state attorney general's office was requested to investigate after the check of a voter registration database turned up more than 308,000 duplicate registrations in Virginia.

State Board of Elections spokeswoman Nikki Sheridan says the board requested the investigation.

According to findings, more than 97,000 of those were listed as having voted in recent elections in Virginia.

Attorney General's office spokeswoman Caroline Gibson says an investigation has started but she declined comment on the potential cases.

Virginia joined 21 other states last year in a cross-check of voter rolls.
