An Atkinson man is on trial for allegedly voting in Florida and New Hampshire during last November’s general election.
Jurors heard testimony Tuesday in Rockingham County Superior Court in the case against 77-year-old Robert Bell, who was indicted in July on a charge accusing him of voting in more than one state.
The felony charge accuses the registered Republican of knowingly checking in at the checklist in Atkinson and casting a New Hampshire ballot in the Nov. 6, 2018, election, even though he had voted earlier in the same election in Palm Coast, Fla., where he once lived.
