An 89-year-old Raleigh man has been arrested as part of Wake County's voter fraud sweep.
The arrest was first reported by The News & Observer of Raleigh.
Leland Duane Lewis said Wednesday that he went to an early-voting station last October and cast votes on one side of the ballot. He said he went to his regular precinct on election day, received another ballot and filled out the other side.
Lewis said he told poll workers what happened and even called the county elections office to report it. He said he never heard back until Wake County Deputy Board of Elections director Gary Sims called him because officials found he had voted twice.
Lewis was booked and released from jail on $10,000 cash bond. He has a Thursday court date.
