Former Town Councilwoman Linda Lyons faces voter fraud-related charges after allegedly trying to vote twice during last year’s election, according to a Wake County prosecutor.
Lyons is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 19 on the misdemeanor charge, said Wake County Assistant District Attorney Steven Saad.
The response from Lyons:
Lyons filed an early-voting ballot Oct. 24, 2011, and then attempted to vote again on Election Day at her precinct, officials at the county board of elections said at the time.
“I forgot I had voted earlier,” Lyons had said. “Do you know how much I have going on? I’ve been campaigning, taking care of my father, and I’m a single parent. I forgot.”
