NH voter identification bill would require proof of residency

The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. — A second, more restrictive voter identification bill is up for a vote in the New Hampshire Senate.

The Senate votes Wednesday on a bill that would require voters to be state residents and to prove their citizenship to register for voting.

Anyone voting in New Hampshire would have to register their vehicle in the state and get a New Hampshire driver’s license in addition to other resident requirements.

The Senate has already passed a similar voter identification bill 18-5 but without the provisions requiring residency or citizenship. It also created a voting-specific identification card for voters without photo identification.
