The definition of DOMICILE is found in New Hampshire’s venerable Part I Article #II section of our State Constitution, regarding the right to vote being a privilege reserved for legal residents is a fact backed up on this site by at least a hundred cited cases from all over the United States.
In no case in US history is a citizen of one state permitted to vote in any other state than his own without first abandoning his previous DOMICILE.
The word RESIDENT is not found in Part I Article II.
A citizen, resident, dweller, or inhabitant of another state can no more vote in New Hampshire than he can get a resident hunting license, dog license, NH driver’s license, or serve on a jury, than he can be qualified to vote in New Hampshire, legally.
Our State Constitution is clear.
Our NH Statutes are clear.
Nothing in NH regarding who is qualified to vote is in question other than the policy of NH Election Officials and the Attorney General’s Election Law Division along with several activist courts allowing non-residents to vote in our Federal Elections because of a convoluted interpretation of a word that is not in our Constitution.
New Hampshire’s practice and policy of letting non-qualified college students and campaign workers alter our elections for Federal Office will never stand a US Constitution 14th Amendment challenge.
No state can allow unqualified persons to vote in any election – especially for Federal Office.
