SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Secretary of State’s office says an impostor voted on behalf of a Rio Arriba County man in what is believed to be a case of voter fraud.

The office said the Rio Arriba County Clerk’s office reported the case Saturday after the man tried to cast an early ballot in Espanola.

According to election officials, records showed that the man had voted three days earlier. But when the man contested, officials concluded that the signature of the Wednesday voter did not match his.

Poll workers offered the man to submit a provisional ballot, but state officials have yet to determine whether that ballot will be counted.

Secretary of State Dianna Duran says she will report the case to the District Attorney’s office.
