NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - A city woman has been charged with trying to use someone else's name in an attempt to register to vote, according to a press release from Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Director Anthony Caputo of the New Brunswick Police Department.
Mallory Marchese, 51, of New Brunswick is charged with one count of false registration in the third degree, one count of forgery in the fourth degree and one count of tampering with public records, a disorderly persons offense.
An investigation by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office began in December 2018, when notification of these crimes was made by the Middlesex County Board of Elections.
The charges were filed after Detective Kevin Schroeck of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined that Marchese on or about October 2016 knowingly entered false information on a voter registration form, by using the name of another person to be registered to vote in an election district.
These charges come to light as Middlesex County officials announce an anti-election fraud campaign entitled VIP – Voter Integrity Program.
The primary goal of VIP is to discourage fraud, as well as targeting for prosecution those who illegally interfere with the voting process.
Marchese is scheduled for her initial court appearance in Superior Court on May 16.
The investigation is active and is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Schroeck at 732-745-3927.
