Forsyth elections board gives office clean bill of health

The three-member Forsyth County Board of Elections announced that it has completed a wide-ranging investigation of alleged improprieties, and has found "no credible evidence of intentional violations of the voting laws."

Democratic board member Frank Dickerson said the board looked into allegations that election servers were improperly networked, that Elections Director Rob Coffman ordered employees to enter incorrect date-of-birth information on voter registrations, and that Winston-Salem State University students voted illegally in the 2009 Winston-Salem municipal primary. In all cases, the board found no evidence of wrongdoing.

Pam Johnson, a former employee who was fired from the board of elections in 2009, indicated that she does not plan to allow the matter to drop.

We'll have a full report this evening.
