ROSELLE – An unsuccessful council candidate has been charged with voting twice in the June 2 primary election, prosecutors announced last week.
Marc Baltimore, 44, allegedly submitted an absentee ballot and also voted in person. He was charged with one count of third degree attempting to vote twice in the same election, Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow said.
Baltimore is scheduled to appear before Judge Joan Robinson Gross on Friday. If he is convicted, Baltimore could face up to five years in jail, officials said.
In Roselle’s 5th Ward council contest, Baltimore waged an unsuccessful write-in campaign against incumbent Democrat Christine Dansereau. Dansereau received 317 votes in the Democratic primary, while all write-in candidates received just 36.
