Massachusetts man indicted for voting in Manchester during 2012 Presidential Election

MANCHESTER - A Massachusetts man has been indicted for voting in Manchester during the 2012 Presidential election.

Late Friday afternoon Attorney General Joseph A. Foster announced in a release that Lorin C. Schneider, Jr., of Carver, Massachusetts had been indicted by a Hillsborough County grand jury for wrongful voting in violation of RSA 659:34, I (e).

State officials claim that during the November 6, 2012 Presidential Election, Schneider voted at a Ward 9 polling place in Manchester, where he was a registered voter. The attorney general's office says at the time Schneider had lived in Carver, Mass., for over 20 years.

The indictment is a result of a yearlong investigation, and Assistant Attorney General Stephen LaBonte said additional misdemeanor charges are likely in the coming weeks.

Wrongful voting is a class B felony inn New Hampshire, and carries a maximum sentence of 3½ - 7 years and a $4,000 fine.

Schneider is scheduled to be arraigned in Hillsborough Superior Court North on December 20.
