DOJ concludes elections inquiry

WOODSVILLE—The New Hampshire Department of Justice has found no wrongdoing after conducting two additional inquiries into the ill-fated 2021 town meeting election in Haverhill.
Two earlier investigations cited local officials for electioneering. One, completed in 2021, found unlawful electioneering by Woodsville Fire District Administrator Kevin Shelton after he sent a letter before the election asking Woodsville residents to support Michael Graham’s candidacy for selectboard and to vote “No” on Article 2 of Haverhill’s town meeting warrant.
