Voter Fraud or Forgetfulness?


(KARE)  An 86-year-old woman, who suffers from dementia, must be charged with voter fraud, according to the Nicollet County Attorney. Michelle Zehnder Fischer said prosecutors have no discretion in cases of alleged voter fraud, unlike other criminal cases.

Margaret Schneider, 86, Saint Peter apparently voted twice in the 2012 primary elections, once by absentee ballot and once, in person, at her local polling place. Ms. Schneider, the mother of 5 children, told Kare11's Allen Costantini that she suffers from Parkinson's disease and dementia.
 
Schneider said she has voted in every election since she was eligible to vote. "I thought that was my duty. I want to speak my mind when they come," said Schneider.
