Same day voter registration is not broken

It ain’t broke

The move to deny same-day voter registration to New Hampshire citizens is a solution in search of a problem.

In addition to the legal and financial complications pointed out by Katy Burns in the Sunday Monitor on Dec. 4, the effort is part of a long-standing conservative voter suppression movement. It has for years been a goal of the Koch-supported American Legislative Exchange Council.

New Hampshire can do better, in this case by doing nothing. It ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
