Double voting is becoming a big problem in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NV – Nevada officials are charging a former Las Vegas resident with double voting in the 2016 election, a relatively rare charge that nonetheless has received more attention amid unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud.
Prosecutors with Attorney General Aaron Ford’s office brought the charges against Craig Frank last year, accusing him of voting in both Nevada and Arkansas during early voting periods for the 2016 election. The case was filed on Aug. 13, 2019, in Clark County District Court, and has a jury trial set for February 2021.
The prosecution, which was touted in the attorney general’s recently-released 2019-2020 biennial report, was not publicized or reported at the time it was filed. Some of the details of the case were reported last month by the Associated Press.
It’s the first prosecution related to double voting brought by Ford, a Democrat since he’s taken office in 2018, and just the third prosecuted case of double voting in the state since at least 2011.
