2016 Kansas – Criminal Conviction – Sharon Farris

In the November 2016 election, Denver resident Sharon Farris voted twice–once in her home state of Colorado and then again in the state of Kansas. She pleaded guilty to one count of voting without being qualified and one count of advance voting unlawful acts. The Kansas judge ordered her to pay $3,158 in fines and court fees, with six months of unsupervised probation if the fines are not paid within six months of her sentencing. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach was able to identify this instance of voter fraud through the Interstate Crosscheck Program, a voter registration database that includes 30 states.
