One Wisconsin man has been charged with voting illegally in 2020 due to voting while on probation and being ineligible to vote.
Donald Holz, 63, was charged with election fraud for voting while ineligible in an election.
“Holz is due to appear in court Oct. 12 on the election fraud charge. If convicted, he could face more than three years in prison and/or a fine up to $10,000,” Fox News reported.
Eric Toney, district attorney for Fond du Lac County, said in a statement, “This prosecution is not suggestive that the election was stolen but elections are the cornerstone of our democracy and the integrity of our electoral process must be protected at every turn.
He added, “We will continue to prosecute any circumstances of voter fraud, as allowed by law, in order to safeguard our electoral process and ensure the public has confidence in our elections. The defendant is presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty.”
According to the complaint, Donald Holz told investigators that he “went ‘online’ and as far as he knew it was ok for him to vote.”
Holz said he told election workers he was on probation and doesn’t know why they let him vote if he wasn’t allowed to, the complaint said.

Fox 11 reported, “Holz is the fourth person in Wisconsin charged with election fraud in last year’s election.”
The incident is unrelated to 2020 election fraud allegations in Wisconsin. About three million people voted in Wisconsin’s last election.
