ND House votes for tougher laws for petition fraudsters

BISMARCK, N.D. (GPN) – A proposed law says some types of election fraud are serious enough to deserve prison time.

The bill says someone who fakes more than two signatures on an election petition is committing a felony crime, punishable by five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

The North Dakota House endorsed the legislation 84 to 7 on Friday. It now moves to the North Dakota Senate.
