Under Massachusetts state law, those who move to the state have 30 days to register their vehicles in Massachusetts once here. According to Salisbury police Chief Tom Fowler, an out-of-state registered car cannot be kept in town overnight for more than 30 days without violating the law.
In New Hampshire, a person must prove residency to register a car there. However, those who own property in New Hampshire, but live elsewhere, can register up to one vehicle in the state, under the condition that the vehicle remains in New Hampshire overnight.
According to the Salisbury voter records, Saab registered to vote in Salisbury on March 27, 2000, and has voted in a number of elections here since then. Specifically, Saab voted in Salisbury in the state elections of November of 2000, 2002, 2012, and he also voted at the Salisbury Town Meetings of October 2012 and May 2008, as well as the Salisbury spring election of May 2000.
But according to the Voter Check List of Salem, N.H., Saab is also registered to vote there, with a status of “active.” Officials in Salem did not believe they could provide information on which elections Saab has voted in over the past years.
