TEXAS — Sixteen small counties across Texas appear to have more registered voters on their rolls as of 2010 than qualified citizens of voting age - a phenomenon prompting conservative Washington, D.C., watchdog group to question whether the "overcounts" could raise the potential for election fraud.
The Chronicle reviewed public records for all Texas counties and found evidence of surplus registered voters in rural Texas counties scattered statewide, including East Texas counties like Chambers, Trinity, and Polk, as well as border counties like Presidio in Big Bend country and Maverick County surrounding the border at Eagle Pass.
