My Opinion: May 31, 2012


SB-318-FN - relative to voter registration. As amended, the bill: (1) Removes a statement from RSA 654:1that was added in 2007 that could be construed to mean that someone can vote in NH without being a resident of the state. (2) Restores language to the voter registration form that existed prior to July 1, 2007.

(3) Changes the verification procedure to follow up on people who register to vote without showing approved photo identification. Both A-2101h and Flr A-2223h passed on voice vote. Bill passed OTP-A RC 224-102.

With that, I'll continue next week.
