ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - A man who narrowly lost his bid for the Democratic Party’s nomination for Madison County sheriff wants the county’s election board to investigate alleged voter fraud in the May primary.

Brian Bell lost the party’s nomination for county sheriff by 48 votes to Scott Mellinger. The Herald Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1A2HPdY ) Bell requested the probe Friday and that election board members will decide Aug. 19 whether to investigate the matter.

Last month, the FBI subpoenaed the county clerk’s office, seeking all absentee ballot applications, precinct committeemen lists and other election records.

Bell says eight people voted in the Democratic Party’s May primary by absentee ballot from the residence of one of the city’s council members. He says “eight people voting from one house throws up a red flag.”
