An El Paso County woman who attempted to vote in the 2016 primary election using a deceased man’s ballot has pleaded guilty in the case.
Toni Newbill pleaded guilty to voting twice under Colorado Revised Statute 1-13-710, according to the county clerk’s office. Newbill attempted to use the ballot of Ralph Nanninga, who died in 2012.
“Our office takes voter fraud seriously, and we’re committed to combating it in every form,” Clerk Chuck Broerman said. “We’ll continue to work with various agencies to prevent voter fraud, clean up registration lists, and prosecute those who try to abuse our democratic system.”
Newbill faces probation, community service and a fine and must pay court fees.
