Current law does not explicitly punish an individual who falsely
creates a slate of presidential electors or serves in a false slate of
presidential electors. The bill creates 3 new crimes pertaining to false
slates of electors that make it unlawful for an individual to:
  • Create a false slate of electors;
  • Serve as an elector in a false slate of electors; or
  • Conspire to create or serve in a false slate of electors.
The bill also provides that a person commits the crime of perjury
if the person is not a presidential elector and knowingly and falsely
swears or attests to the oath required by law for presidential electors.
Each crime is a class 1 misdemeanor punishable by no more than
364 days in prison, a fine of not more than $1000, and restitution to the
district attorney or the attorney general for the costs of investigating the
crime. In addition, a defendant who is convicted of the crime of perjury
for knowingly and falsely swearing or attesting to the oath required by
law for presidential electors is disqualified, as required by the state
constitution, from being a member of the general assembly and from
holding any office of trust or profit in the state.
