This commission has no preconceived notions or preordained results.

Questioned Tuesday by reporters, Kobach said, "If you drive in and then drive out on the same day, that is fraudulent".

"It is real and valid", he said, to the applause of some in the audience.

After the article, many people called on New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner, who is a member of the commission, to step down. He said it would have been easy to go vote in NY in place of those people. Under New Hampshire law, college students do not have to obtain a NH drivers license in order to register to vote, so the 60-day limit is irrelevant. "But they couldn't find one of the dozens of female or minority experts who've studied and written extensively on elections over the past decade", said David Becker, the executive director of the Center for Election Innovation and Research and the former director of the elections program at The Pew Charitable Trusts.

Kobach somewhat backed off his op-ed, saying he "struggled with the words - what verbs to use".

"But it is legal in New Hampshire for you to have a MA driver's license, and have MA plates on your cars, and pay out-of-state tuition to the university, and still be eligible to vote because you are domiciled in New Hampshire, meaning you spend most of your nights here", he said.

- A Superior Court judge has refused to put a hold on New Hampshire's new election law as voters in Laconia and Belmont headed to the polls Tuesday in the first test of SB3, the state's new voter law.

Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap admonished the vice chairman of President Trump's election integrity commission for making unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud in New Hampshire.

In the lead up to the commission's meeting in New Hampshire this Tuesday, Kris Kobach, the commission's chairman, penned an op-ed for Breitbart News in which he recycled a legend well known in MA and New Hampshire politics.

We will not allow them to intimidate voters or prevent them from exercising their right to vote. He regularly cites a 2010 Missouri State House election as proof that voting by noncitizens is rampant in elections, claiming that it wasdecided by votes "cast illegally by citizens of Somalia".

Mr. Adams' organization released a report Monday finding hundreds of noncitizens registered to vote in 11 counties in New Jersey.

Temple noted that the attorney general represented on the record, and Assistant Secretary of State David Scanlon represented in his affidavit, that the Secretary of State's Office will make good-faith efforts to ensure that voters are properly informed of SB3's requirements at Tuesday's election."This should include the fact that there are now no penalties, pursuant to this order, for failing to return any documents in connection with same-day voter registration".

"I did not send an email to the attorney general", von Spakovsky said.

Gardner is the nation's longest-serving secretary of state and has been re-elected by Democratic and Republican legislatures, largely due to his advocacy for keeping the state's primary first in the presidential nominating process. We need to give local election officials the tools they need to ensure our elections are secure, modern and accessible for all Americans. Temple applied strict scrutiny to SB 3 because plaintiffs sued under the New Hampshire Constitution, which explicitly guarantees the right to cast a ballot. "And I will not, either".

Still, Democrats mounted an aggressive effort to portray the commission's work as groundwork for a series of additional restrictions on voting that would disproportionately impact minorities, the elderly, students and the poor. The Democrats on the panel should walk away now rather than continue to provide a bipartisan patina to this dishonest enterprise. Instead he ended up mistakenly sending 125,000 Virginia voters a notification that wrongly claimed that they were registered to vote elsewhere. Under New Hampshire law, it's perfectly acceptable for someone attending school in New Hampshire to vote in elections because they live most of the year there. "It's clear my thinking is different than others on the commission", he said. "This risks disenfranchising eligible voters and undermining faith in our democracy".
