SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego’s district attorney says she won’t prosecute two cases of possible voter fraud, including one in which 14 mail-in ballots were cast in the name of an aspiring opera singer who died in 1998.

District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said Wednesday that there’s insufficient evidence to bring the cases to trial.

The Registrar of Voters referred the cases after a U-T San Diego (https://bit.ly/1rD8PKq ) review found 26 ballots cast in the names of 10 deceased citizens.

In addition to the aspiring opera singer, a deceased World War II veteran had four ballots cast in his name.

In most of the cases, the registrar’s office found that data-entry errors were to blame for ballots attributed to dead voters.
