News Observer, August 11, 2011

Three Raleigh residents have been arrested for voting twice in the 2008 presidential elections, according to arrest warrants.

Shelia Ramona Hodges, 46; Kierra Fontae Leach, 26; and Brandon Earl McLean, 25, have all admitted to either participating in early voting or using an absentee ballot and then voting again on Election Day.


The State Bureau of Investigation has been investigating several voter fraud cases for some time, and it is now bringing charges against as many as eight people, according to District Attorney Colon Willoughby. {snip}
