A Detroit woman is facing more than 42 charges related to election fraud in five courts throughout southeastern Michigan, including Southgate’s.
An investigation that included officials from the Michigan Attorney General’s Office, the Michigan Secretary of State and the Michigan State Police culminated in the charges against Nancy Juanita Williams, 55.
In October 2020, the Michigan Bureau of Elections became concerned about possible election fraud after receiving similar inquiries from local election administrators. The inquiries centered on applications for absentee ballots signed with an “X” and requesting that the ballot be mailed to the business address of Guardian and Associates in Oak Park.
After discussing the matter with state elections officials, BOE referred the review to the state police for a criminal investigation.
