Court Throws Out GOP Law Designed To Block College Voters

The courts have thrown out a law put in place by Republicans attempting to cut block college voters, who lean heavily Democratic.

The Republican-backed law passed along party lines in 2017 and was challenged in court soon after. It added new steps to New Hampshire’s voter registration process, asking people to prove they live where they’re trying to vote, and new penalties for those who don’t comply — though the state has been blocked from enforcing those penalties while this lawsuit is ongoing.
