New Hampshire’s voter ID law passes federal review

Written by Mary Wilson, Capitol Bureau Chief | Sep 5, 2012 6:48 PM

New Hampshire, among those states that has to subject changes in its election laws to federal review, has just been given the go-ahead to enforce its photo identification requirement at the polls this fall. 

From the Associated Press:

In a letter Tuesday, the department said it did not object to the changes.

Under the new law, a wide range of identification would be acceptable for elections this fall, but after that, 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.
