2 Muscatine women accused of voter fraud

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Two women from Muscatine County have been accused of voter fraud.

The Iowa secretary of state’s office says the two are accused of registering to vote and voting in the 2012 general election even though they were not U.S. citizens.

Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/19yVWJq ) the two were identified as 21-year-old Mayra Alejandra Lopez Morales and 49-year-old Sylvia Rada, both of Muscatine. They each face a felony count of election misconduct, which carries a maximum prison term of five years. Online court records don’t list the names of their attorneys.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation has been checking allegations of voter fraud for the past 18 months in conjunction with the secretary of state’s office.
