2012 voter registration law null — for now
Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan said the disputed language change for voter registration forms — passed by the Legislature in 2012 and challenged in court by four University of New Hampshire students and the League of Women Voters as unconstitutional — was never implemented.
Under Senate Bill 318, anyone registering to vote would have to acknowledge he or she was a resident and have to register his or her car in the state and obtain a New Hampshire driver’s license within 60 days.The bill, making “residency” and “domicile” the same thing would have disenfranchised college students and other people who working and living in the state but not intending it make it a permanent residence.
Scanlan said the Secretary of State will have to consult with attorneys in the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office to determine whether to take any further legal action.
