New Hampshire Republicans Wage War on Student Voting Rights
Republican lawmakers in New Hampshire have introduced a series of bills which would make it more difficult for college students to vote. Those bills prevent students from voting in New Hampshire if they maintain a domicile address in another state, forbid students from registering to vote at their college address, and prohibit the use of a college ID as a voter ID. New Hampshire has the highest number of students per capita in the country, making up about 12% of the entire state population.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
