Improper Registration Forms Deceiving New Hampshire Voters, Town Clerks Report


Improper Registration Forms Deceiving New Hampshire Voters, Town Clerks Report

Independent organizations in New Hampshire are disseminating a spate of voter misinformation, including voter registration applications not recognized by the state and absentee ballots with the note “vote from the comfort of your home” even though absentee ballots are not permitted for those who simply don’t want to wait in line, town clerks are reporting. One of the mailings containing an improper registration application is accompanied by the message to share it “with your pro-life friends and family.” To combat this misleading information, the clerks filed a cease-and-desist order through the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office and the secretary of state, but they fear voters are already operating on wrong information, Seacoast Online reports. Clerks are trying to reach out to voters who sent in improper voting forms, but it is an onerous task for them to reach all of them before Election Day. These mailings only add to the confusion in New Hampshire, where some voters have also been misinformed about the photo ID requirement.

3. It's time to disqualify states

That fuck up like this and Florida of 2000. IMO they should have done that in 2000. Gore would have won.
