TUCSON (AZ) — A grand jury in Arizona has indicted a Tucson resident accused of illegally registering for and casting a ballot while he was a Pima County prison inmate, authorities announced Thursday.
The indictment alleges 45-year-old Kenneth Russell Nelson falsely completed a voter registration form in 2018 indicating that he had not been convicted of a felony or that his rights had been restored.
Nelson reportedly voted in the 2018 primary and general elections and in the 2020 general election.
Nelson will be appearing in court on Nov. 8, at Pima County Superior Court.
The case is being investigated by the Arizona Attorney General’s Office Election Integrity Unit.
