Arizona Woman Investigated For Voter Fraud After Video Shows Her Offering to Mail People's Ballots

A woman in Arizona is being investigated for voter fraud after she was caught on home surveillance footage asking to mail people's ballots for them.

The Chandler Police Department have warned residents in East Valley to be on high alert as they investigate the women, according to AZ Family CBS News.

It comes as people across the U.S. mail their ballots ahead of the November 3 presidential election.

But this woman has been going door-to-door, asking to take people's ballots and turn them in, according to the broadcaster.

More and more people in the Chandler and Mesa area have reportedly come forward to say that they have encountered the woman on their doorstep.

How the woman has approached voters

One home in Chandler caught the woman on surveillance footage that has reportedly been circulating on social media.

Jessica Rudin, who lives in Mesa on the border of Chandler, told AZ Family that the woman also visited her home.

She said: "It was just a woman who said, 'Hey is Jessica Rudin here?'"

Rudin told the broadcaster that she had no idea who this woman was or how she knew her full name.

She said: "Yeah, first and last. It was very weird. I have no idea how she knew that."

Rudin's experience was reportedly the same as several others, who said the woman walked up to their home holding a clipboard and asked for the homeowner by name.

The woman reportedly asks if homeowners haver turned in their ballot yet. If they say they have not, she responds by telling them that she can take it and do it for them.

When people refuse to give her their ballots, she apparently presses them about who they are voting for.

Rudin said she did not give the woman any information and that after the encounter she saw other people posting about her on social media.

She said: "Maybe 10 minutes later, I got my phone out and saw her picture and other people commenting and saying what she's been doing and how weird it is. That's her! That's the same woman! And I was like, 'That's so weird.'"

What the police have said

The Chandler Police Department told AZ Family that they are aware that several people have been approached by the woman and that they have a picture of her.

They said they are now contacting the Secretary of State's Office and the Attorney General's Office for potential voter fraud and voter intimidation.

Authorities have reportedly told people to call the police if they are approached by this woman or anyone asking to take their ballot for them.

Newsweek has contacted the Chandler Police Department for comment.
