Man allegedly votes in two towns on same day

CONCORD – Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald said Douglas Carl Smith Jr. of Warner, 30, was arrested Sunday on three counts of wrongful voting for voting in two places during the Town Election.

Smith was charged with a felony for violating RSA 659:34, I (e) for knowingly voting in an election that he was not qualified to vote in when he voted in both the towns of Grafton and Danbury during the Town Election.

He was also charged with two misdemeanors for knowingly applying for a ballot after already voting once during the Town Election and for knowingly providing false information on an Election Day voter registration form.

Smith will be arraigned at 1 p.m. March 28 in Merrimack County Superior Court.

The investigation into this case was conducted by Chief Investigator Richard Tracy of the Election Law Unit and is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Matthew Broadhead, also of that unit. The arrest was made by the Warner Police Department.
