State Rep. Howard Pearl, writing in the Monitor on April 6, accused the town of Canterbury of voter fraud in allowing many persons of uncertain address to register on election day and vote. Subsequently, Rep. Howard Moffett and longtime Canterbury resident Maja Smith performed a careful analysis of all 95 Election Day registrants. They found that each of these registrants was either a Canterbury property owner and resident, a family member living with said property owner or a confirmed tenant renting an apartment in town.

In other words, not a single nonresident registered to vote in Canterbury on Nov. 6, 2018.

Canterbury residents take our right and responsibility to vote very seriously. We elected our three supervisors of the voting checklist because we trust their integrity and professionalism. We believe Rep. Pearl erroneously accused Canterbury of voter fraud and maligned the election officials of our town.

He should admit his error and apologize to our election officials and the voters of Canterbury.
