COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- A northern Idaho county is investigating possible election-night fraud after one voter may have voted twice in the May 15 primary.
Kootenai County told other media outlets a precinct poll worker didn't notice a voter had already voted absentee before showing up to a polling place and voting in person, too.
The voter's name may be referred to the prosecuting attorney's office.
Kootenai County Commissioner Dan Green wants to consult with the county's elections office further, to explore the facts and determine if the voter really intended to commit a crime.
There have been isolated instances of voter-fraud in the past.
In 2009, a southern Idaho man was also accused of having voted absentee and in person. Walter Coiner was convicted and received a suspended 30-day jail sentence.
