  • Lesa Renee Colman, 49, charged with 20 counts of voter fraud, bond set at $50,000
  • Janice Lee Hart, 63, charged with 10 counts of voter fraud, bond set at $25,000

After interviewing 96 people who had submitted absentee ballot applications they found probable cause to issue warrants on the three suspects.
