Bristol County District Attorney candidate Shannon McMahon appears to have voted five times since 2005 — including voting in just one municipal election in her home town of Swansea, in April 2022.

That's according to her voting history listed on the subscription vote tracking service Votebuilder and confirmed by Swansea Town Hall.

McMahon is challenging current Bristol DA and fellow Democrat Thomas Quinn for the seat, marking the first contested Bristol County District Attorney race in 16 years.

From 2005 until 2016, McMahon appears to have not voted at all, while Quinn has voted consistently in municipal and general elections and primaries since at least 2005.

McMahon did not respond to multiple requests for comment on her voting history or questions on when and why she chooses to vote.

Quinn has held the District Attorney spot since 2015.

His campaign has focused on his experience in the role and various initiatives his office has undertaken to combat elder abuse and solve cold cases.

Quinn has said that McMahon's previous arrest on a domestic violence charge should disqualify her from the DA role.

McMahon and her husband Bryan Dunderdale say the arrest had to do with uncharacteristic aggression caused by treatment for Dunderdale's brain cancer.

The charge was dismissed.
