Political leaders in Virginia are asking the state to now look into the voter fraud investigation in Rockingham County.
But how likely is it that the state will take action?
Rockingham County Registrar Doug Geib says he spoke with the State Board of Elections about the case. He says it's up to them to decide whether a statewide investigation is necessary.
About a week ago a man was caught throwing away voter registration forms into a dumpster. Since then, he's been arrested and released on bond.
From what the county sheriff's office has found so far, Geib says this incident looks isolated.
"Unless something changes, I don't see the state getting involved, but if there's more evidence that comes out in the future that would maybe indicate that there was a broader issue that would require the state to get involved, then it's possible," said Geib.
He says right now he doesn't think this was a conspiracy against a particular party because voters in Virginia don't indicate which party they belong to on their registration forms.
