Posted on 06/28/2012 1:28:06 PM PDT by sunmars
In yet another vote bucking the state's executive office, New Hampshire's Republican controlled-legislature overrode Democrat Gov. John Lynchs veto of a voter ID bill on Wednesday. New Hampshire is now the latest on a growing list of states to require that voters present photo ID when voting.
In New Hampshire, different forms of identification are accepted, or residents have the option of signing an affidavit. The list will be shortened in 2013, and student ID cards and documents more than 5 years old will no longer be accepted.
Lynch was opposed to the restrictions.
The votes weren't even close, with the Senate voting 18 to 5 to override; the House went 231 to 112. The two chambers also passed a bill amending the measure to offer voters a simpler affidavit.
Democrat Lynch has been opposed by the GOP legislature on several issues, including "parental notification for abortion, labor rights and the right to use deadly force in self-defense since Republicans gained control of both chambers in 2010."

Lets see if Holder launches war on NH now.
We need a time sequence gif map of states instituting voter ID laws similar to the one used to depict the transition to more liberal gun laws.
I’ll take all the good news I can get today.
....or get legally challenged to the SC. I’m sure that Chief Justice Roberts wants to rule on the side of the Constitution /S
(Florida is cleaning up one heck of an illegal voting mess. It's about time the swamp was drained.)
Start with purple(swing) states.
I think now that the masshole moonbats can’t be bussed to NH to vote your going to see the state turning a lot more red on this years election map.
Ain't that the truth!
> and student ID cards ... will no longer be accepted.
We can only guess how many of the NH college students voted by absentee ballot in their home towns and at least once again in their college towns.
Suffice it to say that such fraud was perpetrated on a MASSIVE scale.
Now, it will be considerably more difficult to do so.
Bill Loeb is dancing in his grave. About time that the Free Staters took back their state from the leftist clowns.
Live free or die!
Let's start with every Liberal Arts, PS or other worthless majors that voted.
Why is that party so hell-bent on destroying this country????
