Legal Fight Continues Over Voter Registration Law

The legal fight over New Hampshire's new voter registration law continues, with state officials arguing that the latest court order creates more confusion, while the other side says the state is manufacturing an emergency.

The 2017 law requires new voters to provide more documentation if they register within 30 days of an election. A Hillsborough County Superior Court judge on Monday blocked the state from using the law, but issued a new order Thursday allowing it to be used until Nov. 6, Election Day.

The state argues the new order "undermines the entire election process'' and wants the state Supreme Court to keep the law in place through Election Day. Democrats and others who sued over the law say the state is trying to create confusion where none exists.
