A jury found a Benton Harbor man guilty on five counts related to election fraud.
Edward Pinkney could face up to 40-years in prison for his actions in a February 2005 recall election.
The possible penalty could be enhanced because Pinkney has been convicted of two prior felonies.
Pinkney was found guilty of one count of influencing voters with money.
Essentially, he arranged a scheme that offered patrons at a soup kitchen five dollars each to cast absentee ballots.
Pinkney was also found guilty of being in possession of some absentee ballots that were cast by others.
Berrien County Prosecutor Art Cotter said the case was important because the public must have faith and confidence in a free and fair election process.
