CAMERON COUNTY, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Six people have been arrested on voter fraud charges and are now being processed into the Cameron County Sheriff's Department at this hour.
The Sheriff's Department confirms the individuals were picked up by state officials and face charges out of the Attorney Generals Office for vote harvesting.
As on now, NewsCenter 23 is not releasing the identities of those arrested because they haven't been formally charged in court.
The vote fraud charges apparently stem from the 2012 local election in Cameron County when politiqueras are accused of obtaining ballots illegally.
If the six people are all processed in at the Sheriff's Office this evening, we'll have their names for you tonight at 10 p.m.
