|Ohio||Marian Wilson||F||2010-09||2012-10||Multiple voting||Absentee/mail||1||1||Franklin County resident Marian Wilson, of 1922 Kendall Place, Grove City, was charged with felony voter fraud after the Board of Elections reported that they had voted more than once in a past election. Wilson 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. Wilson was accused of casting a second ballot on Sept. 29, 2010, under the name Marian Toles. 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...|
