With harsh cold and snow forecast for much of the state in the next few days, officials in Ohio’s Department of Aging are urging precautions for older people who could be at increased risk of weather-related problems.
Three Franklin County Voters Indicted For Voter Fraud
A Franklin County grand jury has indicted three people for allegedly voting more than once in past elections.
Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said the indictments Tuesday charged the three with felony voter fraud. All allegedly tried to vote twice by absentee ballot, two of them in the 2010 general election and one in the 2008 primary election.
Illegal voting is a 4th-degree felony, punishable by up to 18 months in prison.
The three cases were referred to the prosecutor’s office by a unanimous vote of the county board of elections in Columbus. The county referred cases of suspected double voting to the prosecutor’s office in 2007 and 2009. Both resulted in convictions.
