Ohio Dominique Atkins F 2010-10 2012-10 Multiple voting Absentee/mail 1 1 Franklin County resident Dominique Atkins, of 1532 Barnes Drive E was charged with felony voter fraud after the Board of Elections reported that they had voted more than once in a past election. Atkins was indicted by a Franklin County grand jury on one count of illegal voting for voting twice by casting absentee ballots under slightly different names. Atkins was accused of casting a second ballot on Oct. 25, 2010, under the name Dominque Atkins. Elections officials working to clean up voter-registration rolls discovered that the voter had requested, received and returned absentee ballots in both names. Illegal voting is a fourth-degree felony, which can result in up to 18 months in prison for a conviction. But under sentencing reforms, convictions for such offenses bring a sentence of probation if they are non-violent. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2012/10/17/3-people-indicted-for-f...
