Authorities filed three separate criminal voter fraud cases in Florida and Virginia Friday 11 days before voters go to the polls.

In Florida, one 74-year-old woman is accused of tampering with absentee ballots intended for a local race in the Miami Dade area.

Another Miami-Dade woman is charged with illegally filling out voter-registration forms on behalf of United for Care, the campaign to legalize medical marijuana in Florida, The Miami Herald reported.

“The integrity of the electoral process is intact because our procedures work,” said Christina White, the county’s election supervisor, in a statement.

In Virginia, Vafalay Massaquoi faces four felony charges in regards to charges of voter registration fraud, the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office told NBC Washington. Each charge carries a maximum of 10 years in prison.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump warned of voter fraud activities in Texas and the Democratic National Committee hit back at the New York billionaire Thursday for calling for supporters of his to be poll watchers.

The DNC requested a federal court to prohibit any organizing between Trump and the Republican National Committee in relation to Election Day poll monitoring actions that the DNC claims will amount to voter intimidation.
