All Bills We Are Following, Immediate Action, Voting Rights

HB 372 Voting Rights – We need to call Dan Innis quickly

Last week, Republicans passed an amendment to HB 372 along party lines in the Senate Election Law Committee.

This bill would enact a de facto poll tax in New Hampshire by requiring voters to declare residency and acquire a license upon registering to vote. This is a BLATANT attack on students’ legal right to vote in New Hampshire, an effort clearly designed to help Republicans win elections they know they can’t win on a level playing field.

Discouraging the next generation of voters is not the way to a strong democracy.  If you know a college kid, or have ever known a college kid, please call,  Dan Innis 603- 271-3077  and tell him to vote against HB 372.

  1. Not understanding this blurb. One must be a resident of NH to vote here so what’s the harm in declaring residency? Do you mean they must obtain a drivers license? That’s not ok.

      …making it difficult for students and people who have just moved? There are no documented cases of NH voter fraud, according to NH’s own Secretary of State. I totally understand your thinking though. Have you experienced trouble with fraudulent voting?
