“MANCHESTER – Judge Kenneth Brown issued a preliminary injunction Monday against a new law that requires people registering to vote fill out new forms to prove they live where they intend to cast their ballot.

The lawsuit, which was filed by the League of Women Voters of New Hampshire against Secretary of State William Gardner, argues the law, which is commonly called SB3, is overly complicated, burdensome and targets certain groups of people such as college students.

The state argued the law is needed to cut down on voter fraud and people voting in New Hampshire who live in other states.

With only 15 days until the midterm elections, Brown wrote that the League, which had filed suit with the New Hampshire Democratic party, had demonstrated they would likely succeed on the merits claiming that SB3 unconstitutionally burdens the right to vote.”
