Two Republican delegates are in legal jeopardy after being caught trying to vote more than once during a GOP convention over the weekend in Utah.
According to local radio station KSL-FM, the men attempted to vote twice in the county clerk race Saturday at the Salt Lake County GOP convention, and party officials are considering legal action.
One of the men reportedly “took two ballots and stuffed [them] into the container… and ran off,” according to Salt Lake GOP Chairman Chris Null.
Another person attempted to do the same but “was stopped before he was able to accomplish it,” Null said.
The second man, who is a local precinct chair, was called up on stage but couldn’t explain why he tried to cast two ballots in the race Nancy Lord and Goud Maragani, and both men were stripped of their delegate titles.
“He claimed he didn’t do it but we had enough witnesses,” Null said, according to the station. “We’re going to probably send this to the Attorney General, we may actually prosecute. That’s a serious issue in our system,” he added.
