Man Arrested For Trashing Virginia Voter Registration Forms

Posted: Updated:

HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) - A man who worked for a contractor hired by the state Republican Party faces 13 felony and misdemeanor counts after authorities in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley say he tossed voter registration forms into a trash bin.

The Rockingham County sheriff says 31-year-old Colin Small of Phoenixville, Pa., was charged Thursday with voter registration fraud after the forms were found in a Harrisonburg trash bin. The sheriff says Small worked for a company hired by the state GOP to register voters. Republican officials say Small was fired.

Democratic State Sen. Donald McEachin of Henrico County on Friday called for the state attorney general to investigate. The attorney general's office said it can investigate only if asked by the State Board of Elections.

It was not immediately clear if Small has an attorney.
