Three eastern North Carolina residents have been arrested on voter fraud charges, officials said.

N.C. State Bureau of Investigation began an investigation into allegations of election law violations in May at the request of N.C. State Board of Elections.

As a result, officials determined that three eastern North Carolina residents used fraudulent addresses to vote in the May 2018 primary election.  

The investigation also found one of those individuals voted twice in that election, officials said.

On Wednesday, the following individuals were arrested and charged:     

  • The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office arrested Terrell William Graham, 31, of Goldsboro, and received a $5,000 bond.
    • Graham was charged with one count corruptly taking the oath prescribed to voters
  • The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office arrested David Edward Williams, 55, of Goldsboro, and received a $1,000 bond.
    • Williams was charged with one count corruptly taking the oath prescribed to voters
  • The Craven County Sheriff’s Office arrested Keymonti Winn-Hocutt, 19, of New Bern.
    • Winn-Hocutt was charged with one count corruptly taking the oath prescribed to voters and one count double voting.

The NCSBE and SBI would like to thank the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, Goldsboro Police Department and the Craven County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance as well as the Wayne County Board of Elections for notifying State Board of Elections investigators about possible election violations during the early voting period before the May 2018 primary.
