LOS ANGELES : State 800 Number Set Up to Report Voting Fraud

November 03, 1994

Recent reports of alleged fraudulent voter registrations in the Southland have prompted state Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren to set up a statewide 800 telephone number, hoping to help citizens report illegal voting activities.

The (800) FRAUD98 hot line will operate 24 hours a day. It will remain in use during business hours for two weeks after next Tuesday's election.

Lungren said that with the election a week away, he hopes the hot line will act as a deterrent against people who want to tamper with the democratic process. Examples of voter fraud Lungren cited included voters who are underage, non-citizens and people registered to vote more than once.
