Woman is charged with voting while ineligible

WILLMAR -- Kimberlee Ann Davis, 45, of Willmar, made her first court appearance Monday on a felony charge of knowingly voting in 2008 while she was ineligible to cast a ballot.

Davis was released on her personal recognizance. Her next appearance in Kandiyohi County District Court is Dec. 20.

According to the complaint, Davis voted in the Nov. 4, 2008, election when she was not eligible. She had been convicted of a felony and her civil rights had not been restored.

She was interviewed by investigators and allegedly admitted to voting in Willmar.

According to court records, Davis was convicted in July 2006 of forgery and ordered to serve five years of probation, pay a $50 fine and pay $7,133.02 in restitution.

As part of a plea agreement, charges of forgery and theft were dismissed. Court files also show that Davis still owes $3,060 and the account was sent to collections in October.

According to Tribune files, Davis was charged after working for two companies as a bookkeeper. An audit revealed that she had forged a number of checks and also wrote her own paycheck for the time she worked plus an extra 20 hours of pay for each pay period.
