A Bermudian woman is among a group accused of illegally voting in the United States 2016 presidential election.

The charges, announced by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, include Ismay Prudence Kathleen James, 54, of Bermuda, among 12 foreign nationals accused.

They were charged in the US District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina on August 13.

The ICE site said they faced misdemeanour charges for unlawfully casting ballots in the 2016 presidential election.

They are to be prosecuted federally by the office of United States Attorney Matthew G.T. Martin for the Middle District of North Carolina.

The ICE statement also said 19 other foreign nationals, from countries all over the world, were accused of illegally voting in the 2016 federal elections.

They were described as the latest indictments out of “an ongoing years-long federal criminal investigation being conducted by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations Raleigh office”.

A federal grand jury in Wilmington also brought federal felony charges against seven other foreigners on August 31.

They were charged with falsely claiming US citizenship or making false statements on voter registration application.

They also face misdemeanour charges of unlawfully casting ballots in the 2016 presidential election.

Non-citizens are not eligible to register to vote or to vote in federal elections under US law.
