From the American Civil Liberties Union:
The first ballot I ever cast was the 2018 primary. Walking out of the voting booth, I was filled with both excitement and gratitude. It was incredibly satisfying to finally cast my vote.
So you can imagine my dismay when I learned of HB1264, a new state law that would change what it means to be a “resident” of New Hampshire, forcing people with out-of-state driver’s licenses or car registrations who are eligible to vote in New Hampshire to pay fees to switch to state-versions. Otherwise, they will face criminal penalties. HB1264 was passed in 2018 and is slated to go into effect in July 2019. Under the law, I have to pay to change my California license to be a New Hampshire one.
If I vote and don’t change my license within 60 days, I could even be charged with a misdemeanor offense punishable with up to one year in jail. Make no mistake: this is meant to deter young people from participating in our elections.
