VIRGINIA - An investigation is underway looking into duplicate voter registrations.

The Virginia State Board of Elections requested the investigation this week from the State's Attorney General Office after the voter registration database turned up more than 308,000 duplicate registrations in the state.

"Most people, when they move and they register to vote they don't call back to the old state and say 'oh by the way take me off the rolls,'" said Sen. Tim Kaine (D). "They just start voting on a new state and that's not fraudulent. As long as they're not voting in two states that's not fraudulent."

Last year, Virginia joined 21 other states in a cross-check of voter rolls.
