The Select Board will consider disciplinary action against a town official for alleged electioneering violations

HAVERHILL — The Select Board will consider disciplinary action against a town official for alleged electioneering violations. Following a year-long investigation, the New Hampshire Department of Justice found evidence that Regis Roy, the Supervisor of the Checklist, attempted to influence the vote in violation of state election law at the 2021 Town Meeting. In a six-page cease and desist order dated June 23, the DOJ told Roy, “Based on our investigation, we find that your conduct was grossly inappropriate and antithetical to your duties as an election official.” The investigation was initiated by former Selectman Matthew Bjelobrk, who asked the Select Board on Tuesday to remove Roy from her post.
