Twelve members of a group aiming to mobilize black voters in Indiana were charged Friday for allegedly submitting fake voter registration applications in the 2016 election. Police first investigated the Indiana Voter Registration Project in August after a county clerk noticed suspicious or missing information on about a dozen registration forms. The accused face counts of procuring or submitting voter registration applications known to be false, as well perjury and counterfeiting. Each defendant faces more than two years in prison if convicted. The group's effort was overseen by pro-Democrat Patriot Majority USA, which has denied any wrongdoing.
