    A man was arrested for wrongful voting in New Hampshire on Friday after a warrant for his arrest was issued earlier this week.

    The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office announced that Derek Castonguay of Manchester, New Hampshire, turned himself into authorities on charges of wrongful voting and unsworn falsification. He is accused of making a false material statement regarding his qualifications to vote in Salem.

    Castonguay allegedly represented his address to be 11 Alfred Drive in Salem, during the State General Elections on November 4, 2014, which he knew to be false.

    Castonguay was also charged with unsworn falsification because he allegedly presented a driver's license bearing a false address.

    Both charges are class A misdemeanors, carrying a maximum penalty of $2,000 fine and 12 months in jail.

    Castonguay is scheduled to be arraigned on December 14, 2015 at the 10th Circuit Court in Salem, New Hampshire.
