Ross Miller Comments on Voter Fraud and Voting Machines

Posted: Updated:

Secretary of State Ross Miller says he doesn't know why 56 year old Roxanne Rubin would risk time in prison by trying to vote more than once.

"I can't speak to the end goal this woman was trying to achieve by voting twice. Bottom line it's a felony in this state to try to vote twice in an election," said Miller. "That's what she tried to do. We believe we have an overwhelming case against her. She'll face either state or federal charges."

Miller says her getting caught is evidence the system works, but that's not the only question concerning the voting process.

"We do not think there is a widespread conspiracy, we do not think there is tampering of the machines, we don't think folks are intentionally trying to rig the election," said Team Nevada Communications Director Darren Little. "We think sometimes technology malfunctions."

There have been nine complaints in Nevada, six in Clark County of malfunctioning voting machines.

Miller says there's nothing wrong with them, and tested five at the Clark County election center to prove it.

"We walked through and tried to vote the exact same ballot the voter had up on the screen and didn't have any problems whatsoever," said Miller.

Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax says any problems are usually a result of user error, and people are too quick to jump to conclusions about rigged machines.

"They're just unsubstantiated allegations, and anybody can make one because no one knows what's going on in a voting booth. Only the voter sees it," said Lomax.

Miller says he knows the event won't convince everyone.

"Just like you're not going to prove that Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster don't exist. Or that Elvis isn't walking around some place alive and well. You just can't do it."

Voter fraud is a Category D felony in Nevada. It carries a penalty of 1 to 4 years in prison.
