How can Manchester have clean elections if an out of state campaign worker for Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig is allowed to vote in that city illegally?
With the blessings of the NH AG’s Elections Unit?
Kate McMurray of Westwood Mass., who was staying at an apartment in Manchester with two other transient campaign workers, voted in the Presidential Primary, the State Primary, and the General election – all without abandoning her legal domicile, registering the car she was driving, or getting a NH driver’s license.

Campaign Manager at Shannon Chandley for State SenateNew Hampshire Democratic PartyFeb 2020 – Nov 202010 monthsAmherst, New Hampshire
She sells herself this way:
“I work with state and local campaigns in the Northeast and help them build small-dollar fundraising programs.”
Kate McMurray’s legal domicile is 99 Mayfair Dr, Westwood, MA 02090-2725, her parents’ home. That would be the address on the Ma. driver’s license she used as ID to voting Manchester repeatedly.
Here are the NH statutes regarding her responsibilities if she was a legal voter:
263:35 Nonresident Who Establishes a Residency in the State. – Notwithstanding the provisions of RSA 261:44 or any other law to the contrary, any nonresident driver of a motor vehicle who holds a valid driver’s license in another jurisdiction, upon the establishment of a bona fide residency in this state, shall have a maximum of 60 days from the date his residency was established to obtain a driver’s license issued by the state of New Hampshire.
Source. RSA 261:1-a. 1979, 135:2. 1981, 146:1, eff. Jan. 1, 1982.
Kate “established residency” when she registered to vote in the 2020 Presidential Primary – but not really. The NH AG, Elections Whitewash Unit seems to exempt young Kate from this statute in his now completed “investigation.”
Here is a NH statute Kate did not have to follow because she never let Ma. DMV know she “moved” to NH. In Ma. you must let the DMV know you changed your address within 60 days.
263:9 Notice of Change of Licensee’s Name or Address. – Whenever any person who has been duly licensed to drive a motor vehicle within this state shall change his or her legal name or his or her permanent residence or his or her mailing address, he or she shall notify the director in writing of such change within 30 days.

In the ten months Kate McMurray was working on Manchester political campaigns she could not serve on a jury, license a pet, or even get a resident fishing license, but according to the NH AG’s Whitewash Unit – she voted here legally three times.
What say YOU Governor Sununu?
