A trial date has been set for an Evansville woman charged with pre-marking absentee ballot applications before this past June's Indiana primary.

Janet Reed will head to trial on January 20. She is facing a charge of Unauthorized Absentee Ballot, which is a Level 6 Felony.  If convicted, Reed could face up to 2 1/2 years in prison.

Reed is accused of causing hundreds of absentee ballot requests to be rejected due to pre-marking the applications for the Democratic Party. An affidavit said that Reed then sent the applications out to voters between April 15 and May 2.

Reed remains out on bond.
