Twin Cities man facing felony charges for voting twice in 2020 election
He apologized to the Edina detective and admitted that he understood he could only vote once in an election
August 8, 2022
When a Minnetonka man was confronted by a detective about casting an absentee ballot and voting in-person in the November 2020 general election, he said "sorry about that."
But now the dual voter, Alexander Leonard Peck, 30, faces two felony counts of unlawful voting and registering in more than one precinct, according to charges recently filed in Hennepin County District Court. Peck is accused of voting absentee under a Minneapolis address in late September, and again Nov. 3 at an Edina polling location.
Peck did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
