Virginia College Student Gets 100 Days In Prison For Election Fraud


On Tuesday, a Virginia college student was sentenced to 100 days in prison. His crime? Registering deceased individuals to vote for the Virginia Democratic Party. 

In 2016, Andrew Spieles, a 21-year-old student at James Madison University, was told to "register as many voters as possible" for the organization Harrisonburg Votes, an affiliate of the Democratic Party. 

Spieles and other volunteers would go out and register people to vote, then go back to the Democratic Campaign headquarters in Harrisonburg and enter the names into a computer database. 

In August 2016, someone noticed that a name on the database belonged to the dead father of a famed local judge. This led to the discovery of 18 names of deceased individuals Spieles had entered into the system. Whoops. 

Spieles admitted that he had entered in the fraudulent voter registration forms. After a court hearing in the Western District of Virginia this week, he was sentenced to 100 days in prison. 

Election fraud is a federal crime punishable by a $100,000 to 100 to 120 days in prison.
