Scott County Attorney Michael J. Walton and Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz sent a news release Thursday reminding voters that casting more than one ballot in an election is a felony:

Pursuant to Iowa Code Section 39A.2(b) a person who willfully votes or attempts to vote more than once in the same election commits Vote Fraud, a Class D Felony.

Please do not follow requests to cast more than one ballot.

To knowingly advise or encourage, or assist another to cast more than one ballot could also be felony Vote Fraud.

Ballots are electronically tracked in Iowa. If more than one ballot is cast for a person it is easily
identified and will be forwarded to law enforcement for investigation and prosecution.
