New Hampshire Democrats push 2020 hopefuls on voting rights

Combined Shape

DOVER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire Democrats are looking for help from their party’s presidential candidates in overturning a law they claim will make it harder for some college students to vote.

At campaign events across the state, White House hopefuls are being pressed to speak out against the 2018 law that subjects out-of-state college students to residency requirements such as getting New Hampshire driver’s licenses if they vote in the state.

The law doesn’t take effect until July. But Democratic activists and voters are arguing this is a moment for presidential candidates to take a stand against GOP moves to weaken access to the ballot box in New Hampshire and elsewhere. President Donald Trump has popularized false claims about widespread voter fraud.
