DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas County grand jury has issued an indictment in an ongoing voter fraud investigation in Dallas after hundreds of mail-in ballots were sequestered from the May city elections.

The Dallas Morning News reported Monday that Miguel Hernandez was formally charged with second-degree felony illegal voting. A warrant was issued last month for the arrest of the 27-year-old man.

He’s accused of visiting a woman in April and collecting her blank absentee ballot, then filling it out and forging her signature before mailing it to the county. Dozens of senior citizens in West Dallas and Grand Prairie filed complaints about receiving mail-in ballots they had not requested.

The case caused 700 suspicious mail-in ballots to be sequestered.
