Act to Protect Voting Rights

Senate Bill 3 (SB3) which has passed the Senate strictly along party lines and is now on its way to the House where the date to vote on it is TBD.  SB3 is a bill incorporating a wait period to vote, and a commitment to live in the state in order to be eligible to vote. College students are definitely the target of this legislation. It forces voters who register the same day to sign an affidavit which could end in a $5000 fine if anything is deemed to be improper. It also snares military personnel. Read NHDP’s Chair, Ray Buckley’s statement on SB3 and review a summary of the bill: https://legiscan.com/NH/bill/SB3/2017
