UMaine student charged with submitting former roommate’s ballot as her own – Portland Press Herald

She added in another post: “The irony is she’s a trump supporter and they’re the ones who complain about voter fraud the most,” Suleiman wrote.

In an interview conducted via text message, Suleiman said they did not get along with Dau and the two argued over lots of issues, from garbage at the apartment to politics. Suleiman moved out near the end of September, but had already requested an absentee ballot.

After the move, Suleiman said, they called the postal service to try to have the ballot sent to the new, correct address, but it had already been delivered. Suleiman then made plans to vote in person after the town clerk advised that it was permissible in such cases.

A day after Suleiman cast a ballot in person, the clerk called back.

“A second ballot had been turned in and the signature didn’t match,” Suleiman said. The return address also used a nickname, “Evan,” instead of Suleiman’s full first name, and the handwriting was someone else’s.

“Then I kind of put two and two together and realized Alyssa had stolen it and I told them that’s what I suspected,” Suleiman said. “They immediately launched an investigation.”
