MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange is warning against voter fraud ahead of the state's June primary elections, promising that those caught will be prosecuted.

Under state law, it is a felony to:

willfully alter the vote on someone else's absentee ballot

willfully cast more than one absentee ballot in the same election

willfully vote in someone else's name or falsify absentee ballot documents, or to

solicit or encourage illegal absentee voting activities.

If caught committing absentee ballot fraud, those responsible could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $15,000.

If you suspect voter fraud, you can file a report with the Secretary of State's Office.

Reports may be made by filing online at http://www.stopvoterfraudnow.com/reportOnline.aspx; emailing to voterfraud@sos.alabama.gov; calling toll-free to 1-800-274-VOTE (8683); faxing to (334) 242-4993; or by mailing to Secretary of State's Office
