POLL: Should Voter ID Be Required?

NH Legislature sees bill as way to prevent voting fraud. Do you agree?

Should Voter ID Be Required to vote in New Hampshire? Tell us why it should be or why it should not be, in the comment stream below.

Gov. John Lynch vetoed Senate Bill 289, a bill requiring voters to show a photo ID in order to vote.  In his veto message, he called it too restrictive.

Lynch also said he vetoed it because, under the bill, a person without photo ID for the upcoming primary and general election would have to complete a qualified voter affidavit. He said that would create confusion, "slow the voting process and may result in the inability of eligible voters to cast their vote." The this spring as one of the groups opposing the bill.

House Speaker William O'Brien, R-Mont Vernon, has made voter ID one of his legislative priorities. He insists fraud is poisoning the integrity of New Hampshire elections, and cites the as an example.

The House/Senate convene Wednesday to take up veto messages, and several enough votes to override the Lynch veto in this case.

The only wany we can get our democraps to stay in office is to allow anyone to vote .. Several times if needed Nancy Pelosi still refuses to be drug tested .. Hellery Clinton also needs to have her urine sampled as no one can be the way they are with medications in their blood stream IMHO

I have a question then, if it is simply a Republican scam....why did delegates at the DNC need ID to get in?

aloud means to say something. what you mean is "allowed" Not to be mean, simply assuming you want your English to be correct. English is a tough language.
