Nun among 3 charged with illegal voting in SW Ohio

CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwest Ohio nun has been charged with illegal voting after she allegedly voted on behalf of another nun who died before last year’s U.S. presidential election.

The Hamilton County prosecutor in Cincinnati said today that 54-year-old Sister Marguerite Kloos was among three people charged with voting illegally.

Her attorney, Ralph Kohnen, said his client was trying to fulfill the wishes of a friend who died before absentee ballots were mailed. He says she’ll plead guilty.

A man faces the same count after he allegedly cast a ballot in November for his wife who died before absentee ballots were mailed.

A poll worker also has been charged with eight illegal voting counts. The prosecutor says she’s charged with voting twice in November and for others in various elections.
