Nevada investigators today raided the offices of ACORN — a group that works to register minorities and low-income people to vote — looking for evidence of voter fraud, reports the Associated Press.

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform (ACORN) is accused of submitting multiple voter registrations with false and duplicate names, according to a spokesman at the office of Secretary of State Ross Miller, a Democrat.

Two months ago, state and federal authorities formed a joint task force to pursue charges of election fraud in Nevada.

We’re looking into the question of how much credible evidence exists of ACORN’s involvement in significant voting fraud, and will keep you posted.
