Starr County Woman Accused Of Using Deceased Person’s Name To Vote


A Starr County woman has been indicted amid accusations she used the identity of a dead woman to cast a mail-in vote.

A Hidalgo County grand jury indicted Bernice Annette Garza, and she was arrested by the Election Fraud Unit of the Texas Attorney General’s Office. The 44-year-old Garza is alleged to have applied for and signed an early vote ballot using the identity of a woman who had passed away nine years earlier. The mail-in vote was cast in the 2016 March Democratic primary elections.

Garza is charged with voter impersonation, illegal voting, and providing false information. She is a former director of the Crime Victims Unit of the Starr County District Attorney’s Office.
