"Court Order Confirms Students' Right to Vote in New Hampshire" is a cross-post from the New Hampshire Labor News.
Voting rights groups applauded Strafford Superior Court Judge John Lewis’ order to the Secretary of State to issue new voter registration forms for this election. The new registration forms will delete a paragraph that advised all voters they would be subject to registering a car and getting a state driver's license if they registered to vote. The order also instructs the Secretary of State to post new information on his website and to inform election officials in towns and cities to immediately begin using the corrected voter registration form. This decision is based upon the recognition that individuals who are in the state for a limited period of time, such as students or persons doing military duty, have an absolute right to vote here while living in New Hampshire, but are unable to get state driver's licenses because the motor vehicle law limits residents to those who intend to stay permanently or indefinitely.
