Before Election Day, the drama of voter fraud has already begun. On Friday November 2, investigators arrested a Southern Nevada woman, suspected of attempting to vote twice in two different polling locations.
The accused, Roxana Rubin, was taken into custody as she arrived for work at the Riviera hotel-casino, investigators said. Rubin is a 56-year-old registered Republican who lives in the influential Clark County.
Rubin allegedly cast a vote Monday at the Anthem Community Center in Henderson. Later that day, she tried to vote a second time at an early voting location on Eastern Avenue in Henderson. When a worker at the poll confronted Rubin after her name appeared in the database as already having voted, Rubin denied the accusation and said that the database used by the poll worker was wrong.
After the encounter, poll workers at the Eastern Avenue location blocked Rubin from voting and notified the county registrar’s office, which forwarded the complaint to the Nevada secretary of state.
Secretary of State Ross Miller pointed out two important points regarding this case. Miller commented, “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. Someone thought that by going to two different locations they’d be able to cast two ballots. The system immediately caught that, the Task Force responded, and an arrest was made.”
Miller added that there are other cases of voter fraud with similar circumstances currently being investigated in Nevada.
Clark County Registrar Larry Lomax said this is the first time in his 15 years on the job that a voter has been arrested for trying to cast two ballots.
