Arrest Made in Voter Registration Fraud Case

Colin Small was released on bond.

A hearing date is set for Nov. 5.
The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office made an arrest in the investigation of voter registration fraud that began on the afternoon of Oct 15, when law enforcement received a citizen complaint of voter registration application forms being found in a dumpster behind a business in the City of Harrisonburg.

Colin Small, 23, Phoenixville, Pa was a Voter Registration Supervisor employed by Pinpoint, an independent private organization contracted by the Republican Party of Virginia, for purposes of general voter registration.

Small is charged with destruction of voter registration application, disclosure of voter registration application and obstruction of justice.

These charges are based on lengthy consultation with and assistance from the Rockingham County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office regarding the investigation.

The Sheriff's Office says there is no indication that this activity was widespread in our jurisdiction. They say it appears to be very limited in nature but there is the possibility that additional charges may be filed in the future if it is deemed appropriate.

There are no other details that the Sheriff's Office can release at this time, as this is still an active and ongoing criminal investigation.

Anyone who may have a question regarding their own voter registration status is encouraged to contact the County Registrar’s office or the Sheriff’s Office.
