Mark Meadows voter registration under investigation in North Carolina following reports of alleged fraud

Meadows, 62, represented North Carolina’s 11th congressional district from 2013 to 2020. He served as former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff from March 2020 until Trump left office in January 2021.

Ben Williamson, a spokesman for Meadows, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to a New Yorker report earlier this month, Meadows filed for voter registration in September 2020, three weeks before North Carolina’s deadline for the general election, listing its residential address as a mobile home. in Scaly Mountain, North Carolina.

Neither the house nor the property at this address belonged to him and he never lived there, the magazine said.

It is not known if Meadows spent even one night at this address. The small mobile home belongs to a manager of Lowe’s, who bought it last summer from a widow living in Florida. The woman, who The New Yorker did not identify by name, told the magazine she had no idea Meadows had listed the house as her address on her voter registration form.

After the 2020 election, Meadows promoted Trump’s false claims that widespread voter fraud cost him the election he lost to Democrat Joe Biden.

It is illegal to provide false voter registration information, and although Americans can have multiple residences, they can only have one official residence, which is tied to their voter registration. To register to vote in North Carolina, a citizen must have lived in the county where they are registering and have resided there for at least 30 days before the date of the election, according to the state Board of Elections. .
