Brian Shilling, New Jersey man, faces voter fraud charges


FLEMINGTON, N.J. — A New Jersey man accused of forging a signature on a ballot is facing voter fraud charges, authorities said.

Brian Shilling, 53, of Stockton is accused of falsely completing a ballot, forging someone else’s signature certifying the ballot and sending it in to the county board of elections “purporting that it was cast by another,” Hunterdon County prosecutors and police said Saturday.

Shilling is charged with fraud in casting a mail-in vote, tampering with public record, unsworn falsification to authorities, falsifying records and disorderly persons offense, offering a false statement for filing, authorities said.

It’s unclear whether Shilling has an attorney; a message seeking comment was left for him Sunday.
