San Luis residents accused of “ballot harvesting”
Women accused of illegally collecting Arizona primary ballots
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced Wednesday a state Grand Jury has indicted two San Luis women on one count each of ballot abuse, also known as "ballot harvesting."
The indictment accuses Guillermina Fuentes and Alma Juarez of illegally collecting four completed ballots from another person, and depositing them in a ballot box during the August 2020 Primary Election.
Arizona law only allows for a family member, household member, or caregiver to collect early ballots from another person. Ballot abuse is a felony in Arizona. It carries a penalty of up to two years in prison and a $150,000 fine.
