Voter Fraud Alleged In Arizona Town Home To Polygamous Sect

An Arizona attorney wants to investigate unspecified allegations of voter fraud during last year's municipal elections.

Mohave County Attorney Matt Smith is requesting county funds to hire an investigator to look into a rural community on the Arizona-Utah border that’s home to a polygamous sect.

Smith says he'll share more details when he goes before the county Board of Supervisors to seek approval for the funds at a meeting on April 15.

Members of the polygamous group called the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints kept control of the town council in Colorado City, Arizona, during the 2018 elections. 

Non-members of the group took over town offices in the sister city of Hildale, Utah.
