    A New Jersey woman has admitted her role in a conspiracy to promote a voter bribery scheme in her town.

    Federal prosecutors say Lizaida Camis now faces up to five years in prison when she's sentenced Feb. 21.

    The 55-year-old Hoboken woman pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiracy to use the mail to promote the scheme during the 2013 municipal election in Hoboken.

    Prosecutors say Camis and others promised voters $50 for casting mail-in ballots in that election. They say the conspirators directed these people to vote for a City Council candidate's slate and for a referendum intended to weaken the city's rent-control laws.
