State Sen. Martha Fuller Clark, D-Portsmouth, has been cleared of voter fraud allegations following a report that multiple campaign workers lived at her home and voted in elections.

The state Attorney General's office said it investigated the matter and determined there was no wrongdoing, according to the Union Leader.

WMUR-TV reported several campaign workers listed Fuller Clark's home as their address when they voted in the November election last year. Those workers then moved, WMUR said.

Fuller Clark said she has frequently opened up her home to young people in the past who have worked for various organizations.

"I never had any discussions with them about whether to register to vote," she recently said.

State law allows people to register to vote if they "(have) established a physical presence and (show) an intent to maintain a single continuous presence."

Republicans pounced on Fuller Clark after the WMUR report. State GOP Chair Jennifer Horn called for an investigation.

Harrell Kirstein, spokesman for the state Democratic Party, previously said Republicans were guilty of "partisan hypocrisy." He said multiple staffers for Mitt Romney's campaign also registered to vote in New Hampshire before moving out of state.
