Lamontagne statement on Voter ID legislation becoming law

Manchester, NH - Ovide Lamontagne, Republican candidate for Governor, issued the following statement on Voter ID legislation becoming law:

"The right to participate in the electoral process is fundamental and must be protected.  The bill that became law today will enhance confidence in our electoral process and make certain only those citizens who are eligible to vote are doing so, while ensuring that no rightful voter is turned away from the polls on Election Day.  I commend Senator Prescott and Representative Bates for their hard work on crafting a bill that properly addresses these important issues.

Voter ID laws are constitutional and broadly supported by the public.  It is about time New Hampshire took this important step to protect the integrity of our elections."
