— Two Moore County voters were convicted of fraud for votes cast in the 2016 presidential election.

According to the Moore County District Attorney's Office, Dalton Shane Smith, of Cameron, and Edward Green, of Southern Pines, voted although they were ineligible to vote.

Both men were convicted felons and, by law, anyone convicted of a felony forfeits their right to vote.

    Why is this even news, "The district attorney did not detail how the men where caught or what precisely made their votes invalid." Vote fraud, whats new? Convicted felons? Without any details its useless drivel!
