    Troy City Councilman Michael LoPorto, left, and Troy City Clerk William McInerney, right, watch proceedings during a hearing in Albany last September.
    Jury selection in the Rensselaer County ballot fraud against two Troy Democrats is set to begin Tuesday.

    Former City Councilman Michael LoPorto and Democratic County Elections Commissioner Edward McDonough will be tried for their alleged actions to steal votes for Democratic candidates in the Working Families primary by forging absentee ballots.

    McDonough will be tried on 38 counts of second-degree forgery and 36 counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument. LoPorto will be tried on 29 counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument. Each charge carries a maximum prison sentence of seven years if they are convicted.

    So far, eight people have been charged in connection with an investigation conducted by Special Prosecutor Trey Smith and the State Police. Four have pleaded guilty.

    Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see a timeline of the case.

    Staff Writers Kenneth C. Crowe II and Bob Gardinier detailed the case and upcoming trial in Sunday’s paper.
