(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A Lawrenceburg man has been arrested and charged with alleged voter fraud.

Troy A. Kemper, 58, was taken into custody on Tuesday and charged with Perjury and Voting Under a False Name.

The charges are in connection with alleged voter fraud prior to the 2019 city general election, according to Prosecutor Lynn Deddens.

In a news release Wednesday, Deddens said there were irregularities in the ballot requests submitted by Kemper.

"The Election Board reviewed the voter’s signature cards to the absentee ballot requests submitted by Kemper. The Election Board determined that the signature on the voter registration did not match the applications that were being submitted by Kemper. As a result, the Election Board rejected all of the ballot request and ordered the Clerk to send letters to each voter advising them that their request for an absentee ballot was denied,” the release read.

Indiana State Police found that numerous residents of Lawrenceburg did not request an absentee ballot or give Kemper permission to submit a request for an absentee ballot on their behalf.

Kemper made his initial appearance in Dearborn Superior Court II on Tuesday.
