NH lawmakers discuss voter ID changes

Posted: Updated:

Negotiators are meeting in New Hampshire this week to work out the differences in changes to the state's voter ID law.

The House and Senate disagree over what kind of identification voters need at the polls.

The Democratically controlled House passed a bill to ease voter ID requirements enacted by Republicans last session. The Republican-led Senate proposes leaving in place a shortened list of identifications than was accepted during the last election.

The Senate would postpone until 2015 a requirement for people who sign an affidavit instead of presenting an acceptable ID to have their picture taken at the polls.

Negotiators meet Monday to discuss the differences. They have until Thursday afternoon to reach a compromise.
