Five people have been charged with election fraud in an Illinois county that went in favor of Joe Biden. The DuPage County state’s attorney’s office filed election fraud charges against the five people in connection to the 2020 general election.
“In three cases, the defendants tried to cast a ballot for someone other than themselves, according to a statement from the state’s attorney’s office. In two others, the defendants claimed they lived in DuPage County for 30 days prior to the election when in fact they lived elsewhere, prosecutors said,” local news reported.
In 2016, the county went 53.1 percent for Hillary Clinton and 38.6 for Donald Trump, and in 2020, similarly went 58 percent for Joe Biden and 39.9 percent for Donald Trump.
“The charges include counts of forgery and perjury in election code, all class three felonies. A judge on Tuesday signed arrest warrants for the five defendants, each with a $1,000 bail,” the report added.
