In a contested city election in which the local chapter of the NAACP is calling for an investigation into vote fraud, the police chief of Phenix City, Alabama said that at least 86 people voted using their business addresses instead of their residential addresses, including 15 who registered weeks or months before the election. He said this may have been a deliberate attempt to influence the outcome. Meanwhile, the Alabama Secretary of State said that officials don’t check whether addresses given by voters are for residences or businesses.
