After much public discussion from State Attorney General Alan Wilson and SC DMV Director Kevin Shwedo about possible “dead voters” in South Carolina–that is, people casting illegal votes under a dead person’s name–a records request revealed that state investigators found that was not the case.
The Free Times and the AP confirmed Friday that SLED has completed its investigation, called for by the Attorney General’s Office in 2012.
SLED concluded that only a few questioned votes were “inconclusive,” –the rest were clerical or machine errors.
The idea of hundred of possible illegal voters in South Carolina came up in hearings and speeches supporting the then-proposed voter ID law in South Carolina.
