CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire's Legislature has voted to override Gov. John Lynch's veto of bills requiring voters to provide a photo ID and sign a document saying New Hampshire is their home state.
A wide range of identification would be acceptable for elections this fall — including student IDs — but in later elections, only driver's licenses, state-issued non-driver's identification cards, passports or military IDs would be allowed. Those without photo identification would sign an affidavit and be photographed by an election official. Both chambers agreed to a change to the affidavit that goes back to Lynch to consider.
The other bill would require people registering to vote to sign a statement saying they declare New Hampshire their domicile and are subject to laws such as requiring drivers to register their vehicles.Tags:
