The Texas Attorney General’s Office has announced its plans to prosecute two Brownsville men on voter fraud charges.

Jose A. Garza and Rafael Elizondo, were indicted for possessing marked ballots without the consent of the voter, in violation of Section 86.006 of the Texas Election Code.

“Protecting the integrity of elections is essential to our democracy and a top priority of my administration,” said Attorney General Ken Paxton in a press release. “As long as there are criminals seeking to exploit our system of elections, we stand ready to investigate, prosecute and restore confidence that the will of the people of Texas is heard.”

Elizondo, 64, surrendered on Tuesday. Garza, 37, was arrested last month. Both men face six months to two years in a state jail and a fine of up to $10,000.
