    State identifies more than 100 voter fraud cases from November
    Ohio's elections chief says a review by county election boards across the state shows there were instances of voter fraud during the 2012 presidential election. Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted released the probe's findings after a statewide look he ordered in January. Husted outlined 135 possible voter fraud cases during the 2012 presidential election that were referred to law enforcement for more investigation. Twenty of those cases included people who apparently voted in Ohio and another state  and have been sent on to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. Cuyahoga County had the most referred to the secretary of state’s office with 15. Husted also said they did not find evidence of a single instance of voter suppression.
