TOEPKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Two people are accused with voting twice in last November's general election - once in Kansas and once in Colorado.

“Stopping voter fraud is one of the most important things the Secretary of State’s office can do,” said Secretary Kobach. “These prosecutions will help deter voter fraud in the future.”

According to the Secretary of State's Office, Que J. Fulmer voted in Hamilton Co., Kansas, as well as casting a ballot in Colorado. He is charged with two counts of voting without being qualified, one count of voting more than once, and one count of advance voting unlawful acts.

Bailey Ann McCaughey, meanwhile, is charged with a single count each of election perjury and voting more than once, Kobach's office said. She is accused of voting in Finney Co. and the Rocky Mountain State.

The Secretary of State's Office says Kobach has obtained nine convictions in connection with voter fraud since he received prosecutortial authority.
