(Fond du Lac) A Fond du Lac man has been convicted of illegally voting in the last presidential election. Donald Holz was found guilty of a felony charge of Election Fraud after entering a no contest plea in Fond du Lac County court. Holz was sentenced to 10 days in jail and was ordered to pay a $500 fine plus court costs.
The 64-year-old was on felony supervision stemming from a drunk driving conviction and was ineligible to vote. Holz told investigators that he went online and as far as he knew it was (quote) “ok for me to vote.” He added that he told the election workers that he was on probation and does not know why they let him vote.
Fond du Lac County prosecutors say elections are the cornerstone of our democracy and they will defend the integrity of the electoral process at every turn to ensure the public has faith in elections.
Lawrence Klug was convicted last month of misdemeanor Election Fraud for illegally casting a ballot in Fond du Lac County while he was living in a different county.
