MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Hennepin County prosecutors have charged a 22-year-old Minneapolis man with 13 felony counts of voting fraud.

Abdihakim Amin Essa allegedly signed as witness for 13 people casting absentee ballots last year when he was not authorized to do so.

A criminal complaint told campaign workers he signed his father’s name because he wasn’t a U.S. citizen, a requirement to witness absentee ballots.
