Primary Day Tuesday

Tuesday September 9th is primary day. Polls will be open from 7am to 7pm at the Life Safety building. Sample ballots can be found here on the Town website. 
Remember also that you will need to present a valid photo ID. 
If you don't have a valid photo ID as per the NH Sec, of  State website: "Any voter who does not present an approved photo ID will be permitted to vote after executing a “challenged voter affidavit”. A voter who does not have an approved photo ID may obtain a free photo ID for voting purposes only by presenting a voucher from their town/city clerk or the Secretary of State to any NH DMV office that issues identification."

Does that mean you wouldn't vote for Bobby Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, or Patrick Kennedy?

They all moved to states where they thought they could get elected.

May be in reference to our RINO. Scott Brown. Removing the current officeholder is # 1 need, but they both smell the same...Hobson's Choice.

If you think Brown and Shaheen smell the same you should see the doctor and have your olfactory sense checked. For example, Shaheen has supported Obama 99% of the time and has voted for ethanol subsidies which Brown voted against. We rely on revenue from boating, snowmobiling, and recreational machines such as ATV's and PWC's, none of which run on corn.

Brown is our only hope of getting rid of Shaheen.

Less rights to vote said...

My mother-in-law won't be voting this year due to the license requirement. At 86, she no longer has a driver licence and just hasn't been able (has not gotten around to) going through what ever hassles it is to get a voter ID. To those that are trying to suppress the vote, it is working!

To: Less rights to vote...

Did you read the article that these comments are attached to?
As I read it, there is a way to vote without a photo ID.

Did I read it wrong, or is the NH Secretary of State just misinformed?

Good Luck said...

Brown supports legislation to control your personal firearms.
Good Luck with Brown.

Thank you said...

A Department of Veterans Affairs picture ID is not acceptable.

Thank you Republicans.

Couple of clarifications;

Any voter who does not have a photo id when they show up to the polls tomorrow may fill out the above mentioned, "challenged voter affidavit" and then vote. It simply means you will receive a letter from the Secretary of State's office after the election informing you that someone voted using your name. You return the letter indicating whether you actually did vote or not and that ends the process.

As to the Dept of Veteran's Affairs photo id; RSA 659:13 Para II (B) (1) allows the supervisors of the checklist, the moderator, or town clerk to determine whether a photo id not specifically listed in RSA 659:13 is a legitimate id for voting. A photo id that contains the voter's name as it appears on the checklist, has the voter's photo on it and has an expiration date should be considered a valid id under RSA659:13 Para II (a).

So...bottom line, get out and vote tomorrow!!!

Re: "A Department of Veterans Affairs picture ID is not acceptable."

Are you sure? It would seem that it might well be acceptable. On pg. 2 of the "Voter ID Law 2014" pdf I downloaded, it says "(b) In addition to the forms of photo identification authorized in subparagraph (a), the following shall satisfy the identification requirements of paragraph I:
"(1) A photo identification not authorized by subparagraph (a) but determined to be legitimate by the supervisors of the checklist, the moderator, or clerk of a town, ward, or city, provided that if any person authorized to challenge a voter under RSA 659:27 objects to the use of such photo identification, identifies the reason for the objection in writing ... [blah blah blah]..."

I think the key is "determined to be legitimate" -- and I can't imagine that a Dept. of Veterans Affairs photo ID would not be determined to be such. Don't give up!!

Thank you for your service.
Your VA photo ID is not accepted.
Ask the Town Clerk.
No good.
