The Code of Laws is the official compilation of the federal statutes of the United States. Title 52 of the Code, Voting and Elections, is very explicit: “Whoever votes more than once in an election shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. This applies to any general, special, or primary election held solely or in part for the purpose of selecting or electing any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, presidential elector, Member of the United States Senate, Member of the United States House of Representatives.”
One would think that the Attorney General of the United States, the country’s top law enforcement officer, would have known of this law, or if not, would have researched it. But when asked about the legality of voting twice in North Carolina, Barr said he isn’t familiar with the law in that state. Federal law is very clear: voters cannot cast two ballots in any federal election.
