New Hampshire's House has approved a bill that would allow residents to register to vote when they get or renew a driver's license.

The bill would implement a system named the Secure Modern Accurate Registration Technology Act, or SMART. When someone applies for or renews a driver’s license at the state Division of Motor Vehicles, they would automatically be registered to vote. A person could opt out of being registered.

The House voted 202 to 146 for the bill, heads back to the Senate, where it originated last year.
