The attorney general in New Hampshire is probing the state’s voting procedures in response to a video released Wednesday by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe showing how easy it is to vote in the name of someone who is dead.

The Daily Caller first reported on the O’Keefe produced video, which shows his operatives able to obtain ballots under the names of dead voters at polling locations Tuesday by simply asking for them. (WATCH: The video that started it all)

O’Keefe told TheDC that the operation was done to bring attention to fraud since the state does not require identification to vote. Law enforcement seems to be watching.

“Based on the information we received on election day and the information obtained on the video, we are undertaking a comprehensive review of voting procedures with the Secretary of State’s office,” assistant New Hampshire attorney general Richard Head told TheDC by phone on Thursday.

O’Keefe said his operatives didn’t break the law and didn’t vote even when they successfully obtained ballots.
