Concord, NH – Attorney General John M. Formella announces that Sigmund Boganski, age 77, of New Hampton, New Hampshire, and Buckeye, Arizona, pled guilty to Voting in More than One State Prohibited – a Class B Felony – in Belknap County Superior Court on Wednesday, May 4, 2022.

Mr. Boganski knowingly cast a ballot in New Hampton, New Hampshire, in the November 8, 2016 General Election and also cast an absentee ballot in Arizona in the same election.

Mr. Boganski was sentenced to 90 days at the House of Corrections, all suspended for two years on the condition of his good behavior. The Court also ordered Mr. Boganski to pay a $1,000 fine with a penalty assessment of $240.

As a consequence of Mr. Boganski's election law conviction and pursuant to Part I, Article 11 of the New Hampshire Constitution, his right to vote in New Hampshire is terminated.

This case was prosecuted by Deputy General Counsel Myles Matteson, Attorney Matthew Conley, and Chief Investigator Richard Tracy of the Election Law Unit.
