CONCORD — An 80-year-old Madison man was arrested Wednesday on one count of voting in more than one state.

Charles Eugene Cartier Jr. was charged with voting in both Madison, N.H., and Attleboro, Mass., during the November 2016 general election, Deputy Attorney General Jane E. Young announced Wednesday

The charge is a Class B felony for violating RSA 659:34-a.

Cartier is accused of knowingly checking in at the checklist in Madison and casting a New Hampshire ballot, after having already cast a ballot in the same election year in Massachusetts.

The investigation was conducted by Chief Investigator Richard Tracy of the Election Law Unit and is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Nicholas Chong Yen, also of the Election Law Unit.

The arrest was made by the Carroll County Sheriff's Office.

Cartier was released on personal recognizance bail.

He will be arraigned in Carroll County Superior Court on June 28 at 9 a.m.
