"The major reason that they see that people don't vote.is that they just didn't bother, they weren't interested, they forgot", Smith said.
However, beginning last February when President Trump singled out New Hampshire - arguing that he would have won the state in the general election had there not been "bus loads" of out-of-state residents voting - there was momentum to create a panel to look into election laws. The request, a massive invasion of privacy that was immediately challenged in court, should trouble fiercely independent Granite State voters.
"After my own participation as a member, I'm confident that all the members of the Commission are committed to uncovering the truth about election integrity and the other issues present in our election system and developing recommendations to safeguard and improve the voting process", he said.
Investigating voter fraud within New Hampshire, Public Interest Legal Foundation Spokesman Logan Churchwell corroborates the fact that the northeastern state opens the door for people to vote who are not New Hampshire residents. There's your leap in logic. "The commission does not have the ability to do a Jedi mind trick on a state legislature and force them to adopt anything", he said, the AP reported.
The data is available for purchase and must be release to buyers, Haas said, adding that the commission routinely sells the information to political parties, candidates and researchers. "People can duplicate vote between states without any mechanism to stop it".
[Redacted] are concerned that this commission is being organized in a way that will guarantee its failure. That means they now live in the state and intent to stay for a definite period of time. It said it needed the data to review possible cases of voter fraud. The ACLU accused the commission of "rigging the panels" with witnesses who raise "allegations of fraud so it can reach a result that will make voting harder".
Anyone who registered to vote on Election Day with another state's drivers' license and didn't get a New Hampshire license within 60 days was an illegitimate voter and, according to Kobach's apparently psychic powers, most likely a Democrat!
Also apparently true: Data given to the commission by the speaker of the state's House showed that 6,540 people registered to vote there on Election Day using an out-of-state ID.
Critics have pointed out that most of those voters were students attending college in New Hampshire who are legally allowed to vote in the state while living there - even if they haven't updated their driver's licenses. "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.
"The problem that has occurred because of what you wrote is that the question of whether our election as we have recorded it is real and valid, and it is real and valid", Gardner said, prompting applause from the audience.
As we all know, with this president if something goes wrong or he failed at something it's always someone else's fault. We need tangible proof that can be watched and guarded.
Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap, another Democrat on the election panel, said Kobach's argument about potential voter fraud is a stretch. This is the law that requires that citizens be able to register to vote at Departments of Motor Vehicles. Why?
The freedom to vote is a fundamental American right. "Driving is a privilege", he said.
"So making this equation that somehow people not updating their driver's licenses is an indicator of voter fraud is nearly as absurd as saying that if you have cash in your wallet, that's proof that you robbed a bank", Dunlap said.
