Concord, NH – Attorney General John M. Formella announces that Scott Kudrick (age 50) of Norwell, Massachusetts, was arrested on August 10, 2022, on one felony count and three misdemeanor counts related to Wrongful Voting for submitting a voter registration form containing false material information and then voting in the April 13, 2021, Conway town election.
The filed charges are for violations of RSA 659:34,I(e), Wrongful Voting, a Class B Felony; RSA 659:34, I(a), Wrongful Voting, a class A misdemeanor; and RSA 641:3, I(b)(2), Unsworn Falsification, a misdemeanor.
The felony charge, RSA 659:34, I(e), a Class B Felony, alleges that Mr. Kudrick voted in a New Hampshire election when he was not qualified to vote, specifically, because he was domiciled in Norwell, Massachusetts.
One of the misdemeanors alleges that Mr. Kudrick submitted a voter registration form containing false material information regarding his qualifications as a voter, specifically, stating that his domicile was Conway, New Hampshire, when it was in fact Norwell, Massachusetts.
Two misdemeanor charges allege that Mr. Kudrick made false statements in filling out and submitting election paperwork, which bore warnings against providing false information, by claiming that he was domiciled in Conway, New Hampshire, when he was domiciled in Norwell, Massachusetts.
Class B felony charges carry a penalty range of 3½ to seven years in prison and a fine of up $2,000. Class A misdemeanor charges carry a maximum penalty of up to one year of imprisonment and a $2,000 fine. Additionally, pursuant to the New Hampshire Constitution, anyone convicted of a willful violation of the State's election laws shall lose the right to vote in this State.
The charges and allegations are merely accusations. Mr. Kudrick is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
This case is being prosecuted by Deputy General Counsel Myles Matteson and Attorney Matt Conley of the Election Law Unit. The investigation into this matter was conducted by Investigator Anna Brewer-Croteau.
