Nassau worker accused of altering election ballots
An employee in the Nassau County Clerk's office has been arrested and accused of altering election ballots.
Jonathan Maldonado allegedly placed altered sample ballots on a sign-in table to help a legislative candidate.
Officials say it happened during last September's primary.
According to officials, on those ballots, there was a hand written message that said “Fill in Oval Here” with an arrow next to the name of the candidate Maldonado campaigned for.
The 36-year-old is now charged with electioneering and faces up to a year in prison.
