Criminal charges were dismissed Monday against Jane Balogh, the Federal Way woman who registered her dog to vote but not without a hiccup along the way.
King County District Court Judge Mariane Spearman dropped a misdemeanor charge of making a false or misleading statement to a public servant, based on Balogh's completion of the terms of a plea agreement reached in September 2007.
Balogh, 67, a grandmother and Army veteran, paid $240 in court costs and completed 10 hours of community service at the Tacoma Rescue Mission.

In the USA voting is so critical to our freedom that I believe voter fraud of any type should carry a life in prison without parole sentence. JMO.
I bet it was a lib too.
I wonder how many of the dead are voting this year?
Wonder how many Democrat dogs will vote in our governor’s race?
Can you believe that???!!!
Of course. As long as Fido is registered rodent, it’s A-OK.
I remember some guy in Cali did it a few years ago.
As for WA officials rushing to close the loopholes that let her register her pet, signed with a pawprint;
Balogh said she was saddened by her difficulties with the court and her failure to get any elected officials to respond to her letters and phone calls complaining that current state laws make it too easy for an undocumented worker or a nonexistent person to be added to the voting rolls.
"I'm a nobody. I'm just a plain old lady who loves her country and nobody is responding," Balogh said. "What does it take to get somebody to listen?
"You tell me why, when you have such a broken system, not a county, state nor local politician no one bothered to contact me and say, 'Hey, Mrs. Balogh, you're right, things are a little shaky. ' "
A lesson to be learned.
To paraphrase an old carpenters rule - "Read twice, comment once." (measure twice, cut once)
LOL! Comedy only works if there is an element of truth to it!
Wow. A person of true courage. Bless her heart.
It looks like the state doesn’t like to be embarrassed like that.
No, they sure don't. You gotta love the timing on this....;~)
