Grant Ferguson stands in his office building, Thursday, March 7, 2019, in Des Moines, Iowa. Ferguson was getting ready for work when a sheriff's deputy arrived at his Iowa home with an arrest warrant to take him to jail.

The Trump supporter would ultimately face $5,000 in legal costs to resolve the charges, which stemmed from a bureaucratic error that unknowingly kept him on Iowa's list of ineligible felon voters.
