LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Allegations of voter registration fraud have surfaced across the country recently, and now an alleged case is being reported here in Clark County.

A source tells News 3 that he witnessed someone directing someone to rip up a voter registration form.

The same source says it seems similar to what happened during the elections in 2008.

According to emails obtained by News 3, the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office is looking into the matter.

In a statement this person gave to the Secretary of State's Office, they say they witnessed a man registering voters in Henderson and "he told her she needed to fill out another form. And when she marked democrat he told her to rip it up and fill out another form and leave party affiliation blank."

Our source was later able to fish out the form from the trash and gave us this picture.

In reporting this to the election’s office, the person there told our source the forms were registered to the group Strategic Allied Consulting, the same firm hired and then fired by the national Republican Party for similar fraudulent voter registration tactics in Palm Beach, Fla., and other battleground states.

This past week, Secretary of State Ross Miller appeared on "The Agenda" and spoke about how his office is handling voter registration fraud.

”We have an Election Integrity Task Force. And I was a criminal prosecutor before I took this job,” Miller said. “And I assured the public that should we see any instances or evidence of election law violations or voter fraud I would take any steps to weed that out.”
