CANTERBURY, N.H. (AP) - Voters in Canterbury and Loudon almost will be seeing double when they get their ballots next month - two men with the same last name are hoping to represent the towns in the state House of Representatives.

Howard Moffett and Michael Moffett, who are not related, are among four candidates running for two seats in Merrimack County District 9.

Howard Moffett is a Canterbury Democrat seeking a second term. Michael Moffett is a Loudon Republican. They told the Concord Monitor (http://bit.ly/1vWkji7) that they hope voters take the time to educate themselves on the differences between all the candidates.

“I think the only thing Howard and I can tell people is to be very careful,” Mike Moffett said. “There are two Moffetts in the race, and you need to vote for the one you really want to vote for.”

There has been a bit of confusion already, however.

“I had a friend walk up to me on primary day and shake my hand and say, ‘Howard, I voted for you, but I didn’t know your name was Mike,’” said Howard Moffett. “I had to set him straight.”

Loudon Democrat George Saunderson and Canterbury Republican Kenneth Kreis also are on the ballot.
