Former republican NH State Senator Bob Clegg, at Tuesday's NH House Election Law Committee hearing on SB3 made an interesting and telling comment. SB3 is a controversial and complicated bill that would change the definition of domicile for purposes of voting in NH.
Clegg told the committee ( and the world) that college students shouldn't be allowed to vote in NH because they don't pay property taxes. Pretty clear evidence that the real motive behind SB3 is to supress the college student vote.
I for one am glad Clegg is no longer a State Senator. He must have missed the lesson in civics class in high school about the US Constitution.
The right to vote regardless of taxpayer status is guaranteed by the 24th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Now if we could just get all those with the right to vote to actually vote...
