Arizonan guilty of voting in 2nd state in 2010

vote-620Arizona’s top elections official says an Arizona woman has been convicted of voting in two states during the 2010 general election.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett announced Tuesday that Carol Hannah of Bullhead City was convicted of a felony last week for voting in both Arizona and Colorado.

Hannah was accused of receiving a Colorado early ballot from Adams County by mail and returning it in October 2010. She subsequently cast a ballot at a polling place in Bullhead City.

Hannah faces between six months and 2 ½ years in prison when she’s sentenced.

She was identified through a system that cross-checks voter registrations with other states.

Nine instances of double-voting were discovered in Arizona from the 2010 election using the system. The other eight suspects await court action.

  1. Here’s one factoid missing from the AP story: Ms. Hannah is a 66 year old White registered Republican. Clearly the GOP has been aiming their minority group voter suppression tactics at the wrong cohort.
