"On the topic of, do we in general, accept student identification? And that should be yes, we should." - Sen. Prescott testifying before the NH House Election Law Committee, April 10, 2012
Senate Republican leaders are now flip-flopping on key provisions of a Voter ID fix bill, advocating for measures they disapproved of last session and opposing provisions they supported. Senate Republicans are now advocating to not allow student identification cards or county and municipal identification cards to be used as acceptable forms of voter ID to obtain a ballot, meaning New Hampshire will have one of the most restrictive voter ID laws in the country.
They are also supportive of wasting taxpayer dollars on the costly camera provision which requires colored photographs to be taken of individuals without acceptable forms of photo identification; this along with other phase II provisions of the Voter ID law are anticipated to cost the state nearly $1 million dollars over the next four years. Senate Republicans are fighting for funding for this unnecessary law the same week they are drastically cutting essential health services for the elderly and disabled in the state budget.
