This year the NH Legislature passed sweeping reforms in order to vote. Even though we fought back against Voter ID laws the misguided leadership in the NH House pushed it through. Now we need to work together to ensure that everyone know what they need to vote.
America Votes, an ally of the AFL-CIO is working to protect our rights to vote and ensure every votes in this crucial election. They are looking to find and help anyone who would not be able to vote because of these changes. .
From America Votes:
This year the NH Legislature passed a bill, HB 1354, that will require a voter to show a photo ID at the polls when they go to vote. This year if a voter doesn’t have an ID they will be allowed to sign an affidavit that will allow them to vote. We want to hear from you about how this legislation will impact you and your family. Did a grandparent give up their driver’s license? Does your 18 year old not have ID yet because they don’t drive? Are you an out of state student worried about the impact? Send your story to firstname.lastname@example.org.
America Votes will help to answer your questions about the new Voter ID laws. All you need to do is tell them why you may not be able to vote under these new election laws. They can and will help you. It is your Constitutional Right to vote, don’t let anyone try to take that away. Know your rights and be prepared when the time comes!
