A Henderson woman accused of trying to vote twice this week said today that she is eager to tell her side of the story.

Roxanne Rubin, 56 and a registered Republican, was arrested Friday on a felony charge of voter fraud.

"I really want to talk to you because I am not crazy," Rubin said when reached by a Sun reporter on her cellphone — a number she provided to poll workers the second time she tried to vote Monday. "But I'm really unable to talk until I meet with my lawyer."

Rubin is accused of voting at an early-voting location in Henderson on Monday morning. She raised poll workers' attention there when she commented to another voter that she "signed differently and they didn't check my ID," according to arrest documents released today.

Poll workers described a petite woman in her 50s with striking red hair. According to arrest documents, Rubin's signature at the Henderson voting location matched her voter registration card, evidence used by investigators to back up their claim it was indeed Rubin who cast a ballot and not someone else.

Rubin then went to a second polling location on Eastern Avenue. When she attempted to sign in, poll workers were alerted by their computer system that she had already voted. Rubin complained that the poll workers at the first location had made a mistake and insisted she be allowed to vote.

Poll workers refused to let her vote. Rubin then gave them her cellphone number and asked them to call her when she was allowed to vote, according to the arrest documents.

Rubin was arrested Friday by the Election Integrity Task Force when she arrived to work at the Riviera.
