ANTI-ELDERLY AND DISABLED ABSENTEE BALLOT VOTER BILL PASSED BY HOUSE REPUBLICANS

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – April 8, the House of Representatives passed House Bill 292, a bill that would likely discourage absentee voting. After the vote Representative Connie Lane (D-Concord) released the following statement:


“House Bill 292 would place undue burdens on elderly and disabled voters by requiring a photo ID or notarization of a voter’s signature if a person has an absentee ballot sent to a different address than where they vote. Forcing signatures to be matched by moderators would disproportionately impact voters who are disabled and is unconstitutional. Additionally, voters who live in a nursing home can vote from their former address, but this bill would make that much harder for them.”
