INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Indiana's secretary of state has accused former U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh and his wife of voter fraud for casting absentee ballots in a May primary.

State Secretary of State Charles P. White, who is fighting voter fraud charges for using his ex-wife's address, said the Bayhs were primarily living in another state when they voted absentee in the Indianapolis municipal primary, the Indianapolis Star reported.

White charged the Bayhs, who own a condo in Indianapolis, shouldn't have cast ballots because their primary residence is a multimillion-dollar home in Washington and the former senator no longer represents the state.

"I take no joy in filing this complaint," White said, "but the Democrats have opened themselves up for this and many future filings against others who show their blatant disregard for voting and homestead deduction laws."

White hand-delivered his complaint to the Marion County prosecutor's office on Tuesday.

White is a Republican while the Bays are Democrats.
