NEW HOPE, Minn. (WCCO) — The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office has declined to charge a New Hope man who was accused of committing voter fraud.

Michael Allan Clark, 43, is the second New Hope man in recent years to come under investigation by the county attorney for voter fraud.

The first case was prosecuted about one year ago.

The New Hope Police Department says the city typically gets a referral from the county elections office and will then investigate. They’ve found the vast majority of cases are registration errors or voting by felons whose rights haven’t been restored.
