LAW SOLVES VOTER INTEGRITY ISSUES EXPOSED BY PROJECT VERITAS ACTION VIDEOS
VOTERS MUST NOW BE STATE RESIDENTS, OR PROVE INTENTION TO BECOME RESIDENTS
SUNUNU: NEW LAW “RESTORE[S] EQUALITY AND FAIRNESS TO OUR ELECTIONS”
BILL SIGNED AFTER NH SUPREME COURT FOUND BILL TO BE CONSTITUTIONAL
(New Hampshire) On July 13th, 2018, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu signed House Bill 1264, which will require voters to prove “residency” in the state before being able to cast a ballot.
In February of 2016 during the Democratic Primary elections in the state of New Hampshire, Project Veritas Action released undercover videos at various polling locations highlighting why the passage of a bill like HB-1264 could improve the integrity of the state’s election system.
The video showed poll workers explaining to would-be voters that they were eligible to vote no matter how long they planned on being in the state. HB-1264 remedies this, compelling voters to acquire proof-of-residence such as a state driver’s license.
Prior to the bill’s signing, the New Hampshire Supreme Court found the bill was constitutional and struck back at criticisms that the bill would unfairly suppress certain voting groups, like out-of-state college students. The Court said such voters can still vote in New Hampshire so long as they make an effort to make New Hampshire their voting domicile.
Gov. Sununu said of the bill, “New Hampshire will now align with virtually every other state in requiring residency in order to vote.”
Project Veritas Action will continue to investigate and expose flaws in our election systems across the country, which enables responsible state governments to solve election integrity issues.
