Nevada's Secretary of State Ross Miller said today that agents have arrested Roxanne Rubin in Las Vegas for attempting to vote twice in the presidential election. Agents from Nevada’s multi-jurisdictional "Elections Integrity Task Force" made the arrest.
A criminal complaint was filed Friday and accuses Rubin of voting at The Anthem Community Center in Henderson on October 29, 2012. Later the same day Rubin appeared at a Las Vegas polling station at 9725 S. Eastern Avenue, and attempted to vote a second time.
The poll worker conducted a routine computer database search which indicated that Rubin had already voted, and informed Rubin that the database indicated she had already voted.
The complaint also alleges that Rubin insisted the database was incorrect, continued to claim that she had not voted, and further insisted that she be allowed to vote. Poll workers did not allow Rubin to vote, and reported the incident to the Clark County Registrar’s office, which notified the Secretary of State’s office.
“There are two important points worth noting in this case,” said Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller. “First, is that as we’ve said and demonstrated in the past, we take all elections complaints very seriously and investigate them thoroughly. Second, this demonstrates the integrity of the system."
Rubin was taken to the Clark County Detention Center, and charged with one count of voting more than once in the same election, a Category “D” felony.
