The New Hampshire League gave a definitive “thumbs down” to a voting law change being considered by the state’s Election Law Committee. The bill would change the definition of who does or doesn’t live in New Hampshire for citizens who want to register to vote.
The League notes: “Our current definition of domicile, which is also used in other states, makes it clear that living here for voting purposes is not the same as just visiting here or vacationing here. ... People may own other houses or rent vacation homes or visit family and friends in other states, but only one place can be claimed as a domicile for voting. The current definition is clear, unambiguous and it ensures that every citizen is treated equally when they register to vote.” In short, why try to fix something that isn't broken? Does your state voting law need fixing or is it working just fine?
