Man pled guilty to voting in Leominster and New Hampshire during the 2016 presidential election
LEOMINSTER, MA & CONCORD, NH — A man who illegally cast a ballot in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts during the 2016 presidential election when Donald Trump “beat” Hillary Clinton, is heading to jail.
On Friday, April 22, Todd Krysiak, 39, of Alton, New Hampshire, and Leominster, Massachusetts, pled guilty to voting in more than one state prohibited, a Class B Felony, in Belknap County Superior Court, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office announced Monday.
“Mr. Krysiak knowingly cast a ballot in Alton in the November 6, 2016, General Election, and also cast a ballot in Leominster, Massachusetts, in the same election,” wrote Michael Garrity, the director of communications for the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.

Tuesday that: “An attorney for Krysiak says he was visiting his mother in Leominster when he voted there, and was under the impression that he could, as he was still on the registered voter list, despite no longer living in town. His attorney calls the plea ‘a fair resolution.’”
Krysiak was sentenced to 90 days in jail and was ordered to pay a $4,000 fine.
Krysiak was also permanently banned from voting in New Hampshire because casting a ballot twice is in violation of Part I, Article 11 of the New Hampshire Constitution.
