SMITH CALLS FOR IMMEDIATE PASSAGE OF VOTER ID LAW AFTER VIDEOS

SHOW MULTIPLE INSTANCES OF VOTER FRAUD ON PRIMARY ELECTION DAY

 

Concord - Republican candidate for Governor, Kevin Smith, released the following statement today calling for the immediate passage of a voter identification law after undercover videos released today showed multiple instances of voter identification fraud that took place in yesterday's presidential primary election:

 

"There should be no clearer evidence now as to why New Hampshire needs a voter identification law to protect the integrity of our election process.  This law is long overdue in our state.  Unfortunately, Governor Lynch has twice rejected attempts to pass such as law citing that our current law of requiring no voter identification does not open our election process up to voter fraud.  Clearly, we know today, he couldn't be any more wrong."

 

Smith added, "Today, I call upon the legislature to once again pass a voter identification law this year and override the Governor's veto of it so that we can better ensure the integrity of our election process in New Hampshire in time for the primary and general elections of 2012."
