Marlborough – Mark Evangelous, a former candidate for Councilor-at-Large, was indicted today on voter fraud charges.
According to Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone, Evangelous “intentionally forged a signature” of a deceased resident on an absentee ballot application before last November’s municipal election.
According to Leone, Evangelous submitted the application to City Hall on Oct. 28. An official then examined the signature on the ballot and determined that the name was of a resident who had passed away earlier in the year. City Hall officials notified the Marlborough Police Department who then launched an investigation.
Officials also allege that Evangelous provided false information to police during the investigation.
