House, Senate don’t agree on voting bills
Current voter registration law says that to register, one must show that he or she is domiciled in New Hampshire. To do that, current law says, one must sign a form acknowledging that he is subject to the laws of the state, “including laws requiring a driver to register a motor vehicle and apply for a New Hampshire’s driver’s license within 60 days of becoming a resident.”
The Senate version says a person registering to vote must sign a form acknowledging that he is subject to the laws of the state, including laws that “may” require a driver to register a motor vehicle and apply for a driver’s license within 60 days of becoming a resident.
“I do not believe there is room for compromise on this issue,” said Richardson.
Differences on the voter ID law center on whether student IDs are an acceptable form of identification when one goes to the polls.
The current voter ID law allowed for the 2012 election a list of seven forms of identification acceptable at a polling place, including a student ID, and absent any of those, verification of the person’s identity by a local election official. If a voter was challenged, the voter would fill out a “challenged voter affidavit.”
The Senate cut the acceptable forms of photo ID to four. It eliminated a student ID as a clearly acceptable form of ID left it up to the discretion of local election officials to determine if a student ID is “legitimate.”
